One of the things we do is a gift exchange at our get togethers. We give everyone a gift of our favourite things, with a dollar value of no more than $20 each. Now you can spend $5 if you want, it isn't a hard and fast rule.
This year I gave everyone the following:I knit everyone a dish cloth, as I love my hand knitted dish clothes.
I am also a fan of the Swedish dish clothes, so got everyone three of those as well.
Mine was a practical, useful gift.
