Yankee Swap Details

To participate bring a wrapped gift in the $10-$15 range. Gifts can be:

  • a humorous joke gift (or not)
  • bizarre (or not)
  • useful (or not)
  • automotive (or not)
  • THAT holiday present you received and wondered "what were they thinking... "

Participation is voluntary - it's fun to watch even if you're not participating, however the more the merrier! Gifts and participation can be per person or per couple. Just remember that to select a gift you must bring one. Most couples opt to have each person bring a gift so each can participate. Here's how our Yankee Swap at the holiday party will work:

1. Each person or couple that brought a wrapped present gets to draw a number

2. The person with #1 selects and then opens a present

3. The person with the next highest number (2 in this case) chooses and opens a present. They then decide whether they want to keep the present they just opened or swap it for any other opened present

4. Lather, rinse, repeat step 3 until all numbers have been used and all presents have been opened

5. Finally, the person who drew #1 gets to swap the present they are holding for any other present.

After this, consenting adults are free to swap their present with anyone else.

Some Yankee Swap etiquette "rules":

· people choosing their present are not allowed to fold, spindle, mutilate, or otherwise fondle the presents before choosing one.

· participants cannot hide their opened presents they want keep (to prevent others from swapping with them)
