Just throwing this out there......

Last year the BC gals all brought gifts. But since there are so many going this year, how about we just do a gift exchange? We could each bring one gift, then draw numbers....or.....we can do that Xmas swap thing (where you can "take" someone elses gift)

Those that prefer not to participate, no biggie, it's up to you. We could do a poll for a dollar amount if that's more comfortable. What do ya think?

Here are some gift ideas:
food/ basket/bag indigenous of your state
food/basket/bag of food that represents you
something that you've made
cheeses and wine
chocolates and candy
kitchen gadgets

I think it's a fabulous idea. Making for everyone unfortunately would be too much but this would work out nicely!

Great idea! I wasn't sure I would be able to put together an Ohio basket for everyone this year.

Hi Girls.....Good idea DD. I had mentioned that to Jim a week or so ago and then I didn't want to over step my bounds suggesting it, since this wasn't MY party. So I'm glad you threw it out there and glad the idea was accept by all. As far as dollar amount, I'm open for any, but think you could put something together pretty nice for about 20 dollars. Just let me know what everyone else thinks! Hugs, debbie

What a great idea. Seeing there is three of us from Jersey I think I would do a Philadelphia themed basket if that is ok with everyone. Lived in Philly for a few years when I was younger plus being in S. Jersey so much that is the closest big city.

If that is fine with everyone I already have some ideas thanks to some awesome websites I have found Very Happy
