Default Need TACKY gift ideas!

Hi all,

I need to shop for a gift for the 3rd annual co-ed Christmas gift swap we do in my family. It's sort of like a Yankee swap or Dirty Santa but with a twist. For the past two years, I've bought legitimate gifts (and one year had helpful suggestions from the kind folks here), but this year, I want to go with the white elephant, or worst, gift. Our spending amount is $30. Any ideas? I have been hunting online but haven't seen anything that's really grabbed me yet in that price range. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Here is how we do our swap, so you understand the nature of the game (it gets nuts!):

1. Each person buys a gift (can be for a male, female, or of unisex appeal)
2. Everyone draws a #.
3. Gifts are selected in that order and are opened right away before the person with the next # chooses.
4. When all gifts are opened, everyone votes on: the most manly gift, the most girly gift, and worst gift.
5. Results are tabulated & revealed, and then everyone sits in a circle for round two.
6. In the same order as before, each person now rolls a die.

1 = trade your gift on demand with the person of your choice
2 = if you're female, take the manliest gift; if you're male, take the girliest gift
3 = everybody pass left
4 = force any two people to trade (can't be you)
5 = take the worst gift
6 = trade with the person on your right or left (your choice)

We do two rounds of step 6, and at the end there is goodwill trading.

How about a bronze Elvis sculpture? (http://honesteds.sites.toronto.com/housewares.html) Or a velvet dogs playing poker painting? Actually, those might cost a fortune, kitsch being so popular now.

This look fun!! I don't need one.

RunninTeach This sound fun, our family did something similar last year, but we can swap and get what ever you got. So basiclly you get the present for your self.
Good luck with your choice!

We played this gift game at my office last year and I actually gave a Chia Pet. Someone ended up stealing it from the person that got it.

I remember another funny gift being a Chuck Norris calendar with all those Chuck Norris Jokes.
