Need gift ideas for my smartass friends

Okay, I know that my original idea of a $10 Target gift card just ain't gonna cut it.

My improv class is having a Christmas party on Sunday, and we're planning on playing Dirty Santa/ White Elephant at the party. The gifts can be up to $10 USD each.

I hate getting gag gifts, and since we're all a bunch of really cool, broke as hell actors, blowing $10 on something the other person can't really use seems like a waste to me.

I thought about laundry items, like detergent and dryer sheets, but other than that I'm stumped. Help!

I found some good stuff at the Container Store's stocking stuffer page.

Actors are always starving. Pick out a nice mug at the grocery store and fill it with packs of hot chocolate or candy or whatever. Instant gift.

I love my Staples "Easy" button that I got at my wife's office Christmas party last year.

I did think about getting some coffee.

ETA: And you're telling me. We chowed down like a pack of hungry wolves last night.

In that case, road kill.

It's cheap, it's exciting and you never know what you're gonna get.

A lovely tin of mixed biscuits. Can't go wrong with that in the winter. Who doesn't like biscuits?

I wound up going with the coffee idea, and some cool stuff from the Container Store.
