Hi,
Our staff do a mystery gift giving. We have all been given a letter that the present must start with. I have the letter U.
Besides umbrella I can't think of anything. Does anyone have an idea. We spend $15. Thank you

something from the Ukraine?


Seriously though - maybe you could find some Under Armour socks for under $15. Ugly Betty DVD? Umbrella stand?

The company Umbra makes many things that are affordable. Clocks, etc. I know Bed, Bath, and Beyond has a lot of things.

Wow! What is that guy going to come up with? Neat idea though. Does it go over well? I'm tired of Dirty Santa and drawing names.

Thank you very much for the great ideas. It now makes it more interesting. someone did get z. I bet the organizers got easier letters. Q would be much worse. We have done various things over the years but not the letters. When I first went there you actually bought for a person. Someways it was easier but some worse. sepending on who you got. One year we did the pass two spots to the right, across the table, back etc

Thank you everyone.

I LOVE this idea. We take turns to do birthday morning tea for a staff member where every item (and gift) has to start with the person's initial eg Chris: card, candy, crinkle cut chips, chocolate mud cake, cookies ....

Your alphabet Mystery Christmas gift is fabulous. How do you 'distribute' the gifts?

Here are a few I thought of for U (pardon the pun):

USB drive

USB lanyard

USB gadget( there are heaps)

Ugg slippers

U2 CD

Underbelly DVD ( Aus TV crime series)

Umbrella stand

Underwater radio/ torch…

Under the shower timer ( Aus has a severe drought & water shortage)

Underarm toiletries

U shaped pillow

Uni ball pen set

Unsalted nuts for Christmas

Upholstered…

U clamps

UV sun protection lotions etc


Everyone- please post for other letters!

this is a great idea. we do a staff polyanna, but the staff members who participate, write their name on an index and list 3 things that they would like. then, when you pull their name, you are supposed to buy one of those things. it's the worst! leaves no imagination and no surprise.

I also only got umbrella. This gives me so many ideas. Apparently we pull a letter out of a "hat" and get that present.
Wow Wow. thank you
