Secret Santa Help

Hi,

My office does a Secret Santa...WITH A TWIST...

We each write our names on a piece of paper along with the initials of a DREAM item we want for Christmas (not from Secret Santa).
Each day for 5 days you give your person a gift that starts with the initials...they are supposed to be funny and creative! The first 4 days your gift should be small, day 5 should be the "real" bigger gift.


An example from last year:

The staff members name: Betty and her initials were D.E. (she wanted Diamond Earrings) so from her Santa on day 1 she received Deviled Eggs, on day 2 she received another item with the initials of D.E. (cannot remember what)

anyhow...my person this year has the initials of I.P.- I am stumped...the only things I have come up with are:
Ink Pen
Ice Pack
"I" Patch ( a stretch I know :-))

Anyone have any other ideas?

Also, any other fun ideas of a twist on Secret Santa...we are always looking for something new.

Happy Holidays!!

iPad! You'd be everyone's Secret Secret Santa wish.

Indigo Purse
Indignant Pussycat - a photo of the Grump cat in a frame
Incarcerated Parrot - toy parrot in a cage
Individual papers - a bunch of loose leaf papers in a box
Inchworm poop (tiny green nonpariel balls or maybe green nerds?)
Initial P (something with the letter P on it, like a decorated letter P christmas decoration?

Now my brain hurts a little bit.

A gift card to I Party

An Iris Plant

These are great! Keep them coming!

When I saw the initials of I.P. I immediately thought "she wants an Ipad for Christmas!"

A few weeks ago I saw a candy bar that looked like an Iphone, wish I would have bought it now! (we were out of town so it's not like I can go get it now)

The Idaho Potato and the Icy Pop are good!

LOVE the Inchworm Poop!! I am doing this one FOR SURE!! My person has a great sense of humor, she will love this!

We do not really have a budget, it is more about the fun then the gift but we try to have something "nice", a real gift for the last day, while still keeping with the initials, this one will be tough!

Thanks, cannot wait to see what else get's posted!

Happy Holidays to all!

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

Maybe and initial pendant for the big gift? I've seen reasonable silver ones at places like Kohl's
