Favourite Things Gift Exchange

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:

A Wrendale Tea Towel, as I love the Wrendale range by Hannah Dale.  Also I love a good tea towel, as I rarely use our dishwasher.  Now I did pick mine up from Zulily.  I have the matching placemats.

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.

The other ladies gave us the following:

2 ladies gifted us velour throws.  I got a red one and a blue one.

1 lady gave us a pair of Crocs slides; I love wearing Croc sandals.

1 lady gave us a "12 days of face masks, gift pack."  A mug with our initial on it and a candle.

1 lady gave us a nightie/sleep shirt.

1 lady gave us a pair of Norwex clothes like these;

I have never used any Norwex products, but some people swear by them?

So as you can tell by those gifts other than probably me, no one else stuck to the $20 limit!!!  I now have to think of what I am going to buy for next year!!

Next year's get together is the first Saturday in December in Midland, Ontario and the grandkids are invited!!  So choas will reign.  This year I said no grandkids, which was easy for me to say as I was hosting!!!

That was an interesting gift exchange. I have never had a knitted dishcloth or a crocheted one for that matter.

I think you will love those Norwex cloths. I have the same set and it's wonderful for cleaning mirrors and windows. No more having to use chemicals which makes me happy.
Sounds like a lovely gift exchange - something a little different than you normally see.

Lovely gift exchange, I'd never heard of Swedish Dishcloths or Norwex cloths, had to follow your links to find out what they were.
