    Last year, one present was a thong, 1/2 a bottle of suntan lotion, and used sunglasses. Not sure if the thong was used or not.

    Our office does this every year. In the past I have given the following.

    - Nice coffe mugs with names like "Lance" and "Cliff" on them
    - Jar of Hair Mayonaise.
    - large bag of dried shrimp.
    - Miniature "Hello Kitty" water cooler.
    - Freddy Mercury Action Figure.
    - "How to land a man and keep him" book.

    I almost wet my pants on the how to keep a man book. Our office is all guys, so that would be even better yet.

    I've been saving my hotel shampoo, lotion soap and etc for a year. The box will smell nice but the gift will be worthless. I'm gonna throw in the four bottles of crap wine that I got from other exchanges last year.

    For a group of friends party I took a nice craftsman creeper that the host had gotten for Christmas and gave it to his neighbor.
