Easter Basket Filler Ideas

Of course the Easter Bunny always gets all the credit but I get to see the joy on their faces when they dig into their goodies. Here are a few awesome Easter basket filler ideas:

Hilarious Gift Ideas for Co-Workers & Office Parties

Our annual office holiday party is always a riot and we all enjoy participating in a “Dirty Santa” gift exchange where everyone brings a wrapped gift (usually a max of $20), we draw numbers to see who gets to pick first and the next people in line can either “steal” an already opened gift (up to twice per gift or it might never end) or choose another wrapped gift. It’s hilarious when everyone wants to steal the same gift and super fun to see what everyone brings. Sometimes it’s pretty obvious when people are re-gifting something they’d really like to get rid of and there are always the usual gift cards and alchohol gift sets, but the best ones are the funny but useful gifts that everyone wants to fight over so I pulled together this list of my favorite amusing gift ideas for co-workers and office parties.
