    So it's kinda like Secret Santa, but everybody gets a general gift, wraps it, and puts it in the middle.  Then the first person chooses a gift and unwraps it...then the second person unwraps a gift and chooses to either keep it or take the first person's gift. That continues til everybody has gone. So it's best to be the last person obviously because you can choose from all the unwrapped gifts and nobody can steal it.

    But to my question, what should I bring as a gift?  It's anonymous so nobody knows and ANYTHING (legal - no crack, meth, child pron, etc.) goes...

    $30 limit about.

    are you trying to get a white elephant type joke gift or a unisex gift that people will actually want or use?

    white elephant
    some "as see on tv" thing. snuggies are kinda old, but they now have those ridiculous adult onesies (i think they are called Forever Lazy).
    a ridiculous desktop ornament - last year i ended up with this Crystal Eagle desk ornament in a gift exchange which everyone got a good laugh out of.

    real gifts
    booze - everyone loves booze. get a couple bottles of wine, or one nicer $30 bottle. or get a bottle of liquor of some sort, jack daniels or something common that most people drink. or go to your local bevmo and mix and match a buncha different good microbrews for a beer spread.
    lotto tickets - get a buncha scratchers and maybe a couple powerball/megamillion tickets for the next drawing. ive seen this gift pop up multiple times, and its always been a high demand gift that people want to steal.
    movie tickets (self explanatory)

    hahahahaha

    i guess the anonymity of it can let you get away with some ridiculous stuff. that being said, i dont know if your office is the wild wild west or if there is some sense of business decorum expected.

    if you are going for gag gifts that will create humor (or better... uncomfortable humor).

    - gay porn mag... have a gay friend [if you have one] buy it for you, so you dont have to feel like an idiot buying it yourself and one of those pocket vibrators that they run commercials for on late night tv.
    - fart filtering underwear. forgot who makes em, but im sure a quick google search will come up with something.

    different people play by different rules.  how me and my friends do it, first to pick has last right of refusal to be able to steal/switch gifts after its all said and done.  i know some people who do it where first to pick is SOL.

    Im doing this at work. My job is soooo conservative though. So no gag jokes or sex jokes allowed. I actually have to think of something nice and NO GIFT CARDS ALLOWED. I got my boss, Female 48-50 years of age, cuban and shes a very nice lady. Any ideas?

    Pillow pet.

    I have no idea why, but they do well at white elephant/gift exchanges.
