Who is In?

So a few years ago I thought about the best parts of X-mas gifting. Here was my list:
  1. Giving the perfect gift to someone - the perfect one - that lights them up.
  2. Receiving the perfect gift - the one you want - but would never feel okay about splurging on.
  3. Wrapping paper - I like the wrapping and unwrapping. 
  4. The look of surprise on your loved one's face. 
So I came up with this brilliant plan to get all of the above:

  1. You and your gift recipient come up with a budget for the gift. 
  2. You go out and buy yourself the exact present you want. Your recipient does the same and gets whatever they want.
  3. You wrap yours and your partner wraps their own gift.
  4. On X-Mas you switch gifts and open the other person's gift to themselves. Allowing for unwrapping and surprise. I think it would be so fun to see what the other person really wanted, plus you still get your present back - giving you the perfect gift too.

Who is with me?
