1. Everyone brings a scarf wrapped up so that we can’t see what the scarf looks like. We set a budget of $15 per scarf.
2. We write down numbers on pieces of paper for how many of us there are. There were 12 of us so we we wrote 1-12 on little strips of paper and then we all draw a random number.
3. Number one goes first and picks a scarf. They open it and we all oohhh and ahhhh. Then #2 can either steal a scarf or pick another random wrapped package. And this goes on and on (similar to a white elephant exchange). The scarf can only be stolen twice before it gets frozen and then cannot be stolen again. At the end, we let #1 go again and she can either keep her original scarf or exchange it with anyone wearing an unfrozen scarf.
