Every year we do a Christmas gift exchange. The gifts can not exceed a $20 price tag. This year, I was asked to pick the theme. Do you have any suggestions?

We have already done “as seen on tv,” outdoors, ornaments, sci fi, Wisconsin, Packers, movies, and many others.

I am looking for something that will be fun for all ages.

Those are great ideas. I am looking for more to think about.

Here are some of my thoughts:

My favorite things (the giver gives things they love)
Chickens
Winter is Coming (All things Winter)
Science

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Have you done a cheese theme? We did this theme one year and everyone had fun bringing different kinds of cheeses with crackers, breads, and various kinds of meat.

Hope you find a theme that works for everyone!

I need to clarify that I was asked to pick the theme for next year. I was tired when I wrote this.

Cheese is an interesting theme.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

- Products that would be more successful as a band name
- Something inedible that sounds like it belongs on a fancy menu
- Things that are sarcoline colored
- Something featured on a sit-com show from your childhood
- Travel Books to obscure locations
- Artifacts found while on an expedition for an Adventurers' Club

Thanks for your suggestions, everyone.

After much family discussion, we selected “International.”
