Christmas Gift Exchange Party

Earlier this week my friend McKinsey hosted a gift exchange party for 14 girls in her home. Out of all of the gift exchanges I’ve ever been to this was the dirtiest and most aggressive one yet, which meant it was a blast! The gift limit was $35 and some girls definitely went above it or brought items you normally wouldn’t splurge on for yourself without a special occasion…these gifts were the hottest items at the exchange.

I brought a gift card for a pedicure at Polished Nail Bar and walked away with my favorite  Rewined Candle and a $10 Starbucks gift card!

There were tons of great presents under the tree, but the gifts below each hit their limit of THREE steals max as soon as they were opened! So if you ever need a gift idea for an exchange party…

After the exchange was finished everyone hung around drinking wine and snacking on appetizers to rekindle friendships that were at stake during the exchange war. Kidding, well kind of.


What are some of the best gifts you’ve fought over at gift exchanges this year?

Rewind Candle Company has become a new favorite of mine this year! I love giving gift cards, scarfs, and cute stationary... three things I feel you can never go wrong with :-)

You know, I haven't done a gift exchange EVER but it seems to fun! It's so nice when people actually go out and splurge on things I would never buy for myself! I think I'll have to organize one for next year!jess | Quaintrelle
