How not to get stuff that ..

  • you have
  • you don’t need
  • couldn’t use

  1. Don’t but something you want yourself
  2. Beware gift cards
  3. Remember the receipt
  4. Price isn’t everything - remember to listen
  5. Always give batteries where needed

Liked the reference the the Homer Bowling Ball episode. I couldn’t find it on YouTube.

The best advice was that getting good gift ideas is a year long task. Save ideas as you go so when you need one, you have a list of relevant inspirations.

We should get Chris to check out GiftTRAP with Ponzi. Note to self - no shoes!

Here's one of a selection of YouTube videos that speak to the many fun and frustrating elements of exchanging gifts that make it such a good theme for a board game. We thought this would be way more fun than reading stuff from us. Refresh the page and see a different video or click here for more videos

AWARDS - IT'S OFFICIAL. GIFTTRAP IS MAJOR FUN

‘GiftTRAP is a party game about giving each other gifts. The better you are at giving people the things they really want, the better you do at the game.

How do you like that for a party game premise? giving each other presents… Well, we loved it!

GiftTRAP is masterfully packaged, .. [but] ... the game itself that deserves the most attention, and praise. Praise, because it’s probably the first and only party game in which empathy is a strategically valuable commodity, empathy and intuition, sensitivity and appreciation, even.

GiftTRAP is a new kind of party game. A kinder kind. A Major FUN kind.’

We received the award from majorfun.com’s Bernie DeKoven.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GIFTS

Just about anything can be expressed as a gift. Your time and attention is as much of a gift as a diamond ring. In creating this game we've had a lot of fun choosing a diverse set of gifts to surprise you. We know they will get your friends and family talking, sharing and discovering your passions. Don't be fooled into thinking a game about exchanging gifts is materialistic. That couldn't be further from the truth. It's true playing could expose your materialism but that's a very different thing. Equally playing could expose your charitable side or the fact that you really do listen and you really are a people person. Tell us what you learned!

Here's a few random gift ideas - not all the gifts are in the printed game.
