Yankee Swap Party Kit

Wicked good fun for the seriously serious gift-exchangers up North.

It’s that time of year again! Your annual gift exchange is around the corner and you have no idea what to bring. We got you, fam. The Yankee Swap Party kit is not only the perfect way to organize and enhance your party, it’s also the perfect gift to bring to one as well! Santa himself recommends no one should attempt to host or attend a gift exchange party without it.

 

What is it? Only everything you’ve been dreaming of:

  • 35 numbered tokens shaped like ornaments. We know…we’re adorable.
  • 100 stolen stickers. Those should last you a few years unless you are a truly sadistic group. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to order refills.
  • Santa’s bag. Probably smaller than you thought it would be but it’s magic, so in this case size truly doesn’t matter.
  • Official rules. To keep the cheaters family members in line
  • Funky fresh ways to play

 

EVERYTHING YOU NEED: Who wants to tear up tiny pieces of paper, wrangle a room full of people, and fight over rules? NOBODY! This is the ultimate party kit with numbers all the way up to 35, stolen stickers to keep track of steals, lots of ways to spice up the game including optional themes and additional ways to play, PLUS an OFFICIAL set of rules to govern your feistiest players. We’re looking at you, cousin Mike.

Why is it called Yankee Swap

Gift exchanges are obviously our favorite tradition, and who knows more about tradition than the fabulous people in the upper right side of the map? Yankee Swaps have been taking place since Ben Franklin traded his kite for a can of Martha’s cherry preserves. (We’re told that same year John Adams went home with a wooden squirrel figurine. “That package was deceptively heavy!” was all he kept saying as the rest of the forefathers scoffed at him.)

 

It’s true, our friends in New England began the tradition of exchanging things they no longer needed for something more useful. Useful is still the keyword in any Yankee Swap situation. While the rest of the country is jokingly wrapping up ugly cat socks or Justin Bieber pot holders, our savvy northern friends are more likely to give you something to dig your car out of the snow or a pocket knife. (Or if you are Michael Scott, an iPod.)

 

Folks east of the Mississippi are like “we can have fun but let’s not get crazy”. They keep it classy and functional and add their own pinch of holiday spirit. But just remember; you’re not always guaranteed a good gift in a Yankee Swap. There was that wooden squirrel incident…
