Update 12/19/08: I got a $10 Starbucks card in a cute little pouch from my Secret Santa.

We are having a secret Santa gift exchange at work with a suggested cost of $5-$10. My general rule for gifts (except for family) is to give something consumable. That way, there is little risk of the person not liking it. It is also more useful and really do not make the other person feel obligated to spend. It is just as fun.
It did not take me long to decide on handmade soaps. Unfortunately, one of my favorite sources is in Seaside, OR. I gave Rick at Sunset Beach Products a call and within a week, I have the soaps. These are great products, my favorite being the Green Tea Fantasy. Maybe someday, I can learn to make them myself the traditional way. By the way, the gift bag was 6/$1 🙂 at the Scanfair.
