The Women's Gift Exchange is great way to connect with old friends and new alike. Here's how it works: Everyone brings five unwrapped gifts and a gift card to a grocery store of at least $5 to contribute to Boston Center for Pregnancy Choices. The gifts can be made, baked, or bought. They can be different sizes or colors, but need to basically be the same thing.
Every person that brings five gifts leaves with five gifts. Some good gift examples are candy, aprons, hats, cookie mix, small jewelry, candles, socks, gloves, hand soap, gift cards, etc. There is no spending limit, but most people spend around $5 per gift if they buy things.
There is no childcare, so plan accordingly! This is a great event to participate in if you're new or you want to introduce a neighbor, coworker, or friend to your friends at church.
