Happy Advent Calendar! Today we’re going to try something a bit different. Have you heard of a white elephant gift exchange? There are many different ways to play, but the basic scenario is this:
Everyone brings a wrapped Christmas gift. In some gift exchanges, everyone purchases a gift within a set monetary limit (such as five or ten dollars per gift). In other gift exchanges, people bring from home something that is in good condition but not wanted.
There are many ways to distribute gifts, but the simplest way is to give each gift a number and then have everyone draw a number to determine which gift he or she will receive.
We’re going to do a virtual white elephant gift exchange today, and this is how it will work:
I’ll be the first recipient.
The first person to comment describes a white elephant gift he or she will give me. If you have a blog, feel free to post a picture of the gift and then post the link in the comments. Describe the gift and why you chose it. Try to make it spanking-related! If you must, a vanilla gift substitution is acceptable. I’ll reply to your comment with my reaction to the gift.
The next people to comment describe two white elephant gifts to give to commenters posting before you. If you see anyone who hasn’t received a gift, feel free to add an extra gift. Again, you can describe in detail, post a link to a picture online (such as a product description page on Amazon), or post a link to a picture of the gift on your blog.
Note: please do not post a picture with your comments, or else WordPress rejects it as spam.
Check back to see what “gift” you receive from the next commenter, and post your reaction as a reply.
Oh, and for the last commenter of the day I’ll comment by posting a gift for you.
P.S. To keep things interesting, please don’t duplicate any of the gifts already posted. Thanks!
P.P.S. You don’t *have* to choose an implement, you know!
Not sure how this will work? Take a look at last year’s spanky white elephant gift exchange.
Please, no book promotion.
