JOIN US FOR A DINNER AND YANKEE RE-GIFT SWAP :)
We have had a fantastic time lasts year with this re-do yankee swap that it has become another one of our yearly traditions!
The holidays have come and gone and I'm sure we all have something we received that may suit someone else better and at this party regifting is welcomed...lol :) I have made reservations for our regift YANKEE SWAP~! If you don't have a gift to regive I'm sure you can find some great values after the holidays for a $20 gift!
WHEN: SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16th, 5PM
WHERE: Dockside Restaurant, 1099 Main St., Wakefield, MA
TIME: 5:00 P.M.
GIFT VALUE: $20.00 approximate, sometimes we don't know what someone spent on a gift:)
We all will have a bill to settle based on drinks/buffet/tip, at the end of event. Depending on total number of final attendees we might end up ordering off menu (is 20 -25 people) anything over we will have another buffet dinner and split bill evenly.
Not familiar with a YANKEE SWAP ~
In Yankee Swap each participant brings a wrapped gift, marked with who gave it (thank you to our member that suggested this....last years gifts were fantastic :) and places it in a designated area. Guests are given numbers as they arrive, or their names are randomly drawn, and they select and unwrap gifts from the pile in that order — with a twist.
The person who receives the number 1 will pick a gift (that is not their own) from the pile and open it for all to see (or models it, reads it, or demos it). During the selection of a wrapped gift, the participant may visually inspect the gifts, pick them up and/or gently shake them.
The person who receives number 2 then chooses a gift and opens it, and then must decide whether to keep it or swap it for the first player’s gift. Each person in order then gets to select a present, open it and decide whether to keep it or swap it for any other gift someone has already opened.
Opening of gifts and swapping takes place until all the presents have been chosen. Finally, the person who picked first gets to choose from all the gifts or keep what he/she has already received. In the end, the gift you are holding is the gift you take home.
