Family Christmas Gift Exchange

For our extended family Christmas this year, we have agreed not to buy gifts.  We will each bring a handmade gift from materials found at home or pass on an item we love, no white elephant items!  When we get together, each item will be numbered.  We will pull a number and take the gift bearing that number.  No purchases allowed.  My husband and I have both spent considerable time making gifts.  I am looking forward to the exchange.  There will be no wasted money and thought goes into our choices.

  1. Brilliant idea, and great for families on a budget. Sadly I could not see mine doing it. I confess to recycling unwanted gifts at a later time (making sure the original sender didn’t get it back!) and throwing out a challenge one year for the naffest gift for a quid.
