We played this game (with only 5 players) using two decks of Phase 10 cards that were laying around and some chips for the 12 presents. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it but the pass option felt bland so we opted for the following rule changes:

1) After dealing 12 cards to each player, flip over one card off the top of the deck to form a discard pile.

2) If you opt to pass, you must either take the top card of the deck or the top card of the discard pile into your hand. Then discard a card from your hand to the top of the discard pile.

(You cannot simultaneously claim and discard the top card of the discard pile.)

Everyone felt this added a small benefit even when passing. I would not recommend this for groups larger than 5 since the deck will be too small to handle the card draws.
