For Table Topics I would like to incorporate gift-giving/gift-exchange as part of the impromptu speaking session.

Rules for the gift (strictly voluntary and you MAY attend if you don’t bring a gift), $10 value or less and can be a re-gift, unwanted item, trinkets, wacky gift, but generally inexpensive. Some people refer to this gift exchange as a white elephant, or yankee swap.
