The Company held a "white elephant gift exchange". They did it as one of those where you can choose to keep what you picked or trade with someone else. (Hint: Don't get attached to anything).

The woman who ended up with the gift I brought is very happy with it (she traded the gift she "won" for "mine"). It's a small "aquarium" with two plastic fish that swim around and look quite real.
