Any ideas for a themed gift exchange?

Clip to ScrapBook #1

With my extended family we always set a theme for guys and a theme for gals and have a gift exchange (instead of buying for everyone). We draw numbers and number 1 chooses a gift first, then number 2..if number 2 wants they can steal number 1's gift and number must choose another and so on. It's really fun but we are running out of themes!

In the past we have done..
-Purses
-Jewelry
-Relaxation supplies
-Sunglasses
-Sports items
-Car items
-Baking supplies
-Outdoor equipment
