Beginning around Christmas time, my friends and I started something we like to call our favorites gift exchange. We have also made it into a challenge. Each month or so we pick a theme, an amount of money per gift, and a day we can all get together.
So, for example, this month the challenge was a $5 favorite item for the kitchen. There are 6 of us, so you have to buy 5 of the same $5 item(s). Then, when the exchange is over, you have all your friends’ favorite items!
Once I move, we are going to turn it into a pen pal thing!!
This is (when you crunch the numbers) a way cheaper option than going out and buying gifts for every occasion. Plus, it is SO fun!!
