We are putting on an After Christmas Party tomorrow, which is half business and half just fun, and we needed to buy about 50 small gifts for a swap. Most of them needed to be under $5.00, some between $5.00 & $10.00, and a few over $10.00. So my husband and I each took a basket and went off gathering gift items for this party.
A tin of Scottish shortbread cookies. Status: rejected as most people are probably on diets.
A pottery cookie stamp and recipe card; a real find at 50% off. Status: rejected as nobody makes cookies anymore.
A jar of organic blueberry jam made from local Maine blueberries. Status: rejected as too boring.
A sock wild bird feeder. Status: rejected as nobody would want it.
A clown fish zip drive: Status: "Okay."
A box of colored pencils and cool sharpener. Status: "Hmmm"
A jar of locally made apple smoked sea salt: Status: Boring
Five zombie finger puppets
A rubber chicken that has a gelatinous egg which pops out of it's rectum when you squeeze it
A book entitled, "Farts Around the World"
A glass skull filled with vodka
An octopus tentacle mustache
An adult vibrating ring ("We'll find out who's naughty and nice!")
A wind-up shark
A bobble-head dashboard Jesus
I love the boy to pieces, but sometimes I wonder how we ever met...
