They have a creative spin on gift exchanges, you still draw a name to buy for but the recipient gives the initials of their most wanted gift. Your task it to find something that matches the letters. You can get funny or just creative. Mine were D.A. (Dubuque Address) and I got dog accessories. We bought for E.M. and gave an Evil Monkey and Easy Money. Makes for lots of laughs.
