    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!

    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. :lol:

    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.

    You could also get them the game, "SmartAss." But it's about 20 bucks.

    Not very festive though, do they sell it in red and green?
