Our office decided to do a White Elephant Gift Exchange tonight.  Everyone is running home (or to the store) over lunch to get a gift ready. 


The only rules are it has to be less than $10 or something in your house you don't want.  I've never done this, but want a clever idea from you all!


Please post some suggestions!

I am giving a rooster clock for our office's white elephant.  Cock a doodle doo.

A Velvet Elvis painting?   A print of Dogs Playing Poker.


One year, in the grab bag gift exchange (everyone grabbed from the pile)I got one of those hats that you can put beer cans in and drink from the straws.....very funny.

Give 'em an old mutual fund coffee mug, preferably from a company that doesn't exist any more.

Great ideas boys and gals!  Keep um coming, I'm heading out soon to find my gift!

One year I went out to the cattle yard and chiped off a frozen cow pie and put it in a cake box! Hint you do not want it to thaw out in the office 


Have fun!

Old cassette tapes are wonderful gifts. Give'm some Manheim Steam Roller tapes if you've got'em or can find them. That should make their day.

Christmas or not, I don't like these people well enough to take something off the livingroom walls to give to them

I LOVE those, no need to take your hands off the wheel while driving.

Why don't you take that pink flamingo out of your front yard and bring that to the white elephant gift exchange.  People love that sh*t.

I still have some GT Global stuff...I might put it on Ebay and see what

happens.

Janus might soon be a collector's item too!

OK, so clearly you have been in the business for more than 5 minutes, unlike some of these silly fools who post here.



Now the real test....who bought GT Global?

AIM Investments- Texas

But I couldn't think of any others right off hand. How about you? I had the

nicest time in San Francisco, 1st class all the way.

Once had a tenant leave a pair of handcuffs behind...no keys...one of the funniest gifts I ever gave...the only thing missing was the pink feathers...


...not sure if the recipient made any 911 calls after that or not...
