What is a (re)Gift Exchange?
As part of our tradition, NAHLA members exchange gifts during the holiday lunch. Please bring a wrapped re-gift (something in good condition you already own) or a small new gift (costing no more than $20) to the lunch. Each person will be given a slip of paper with a number on it – when your number is drawn, you may either choose a gift from the pile, or swipe a gift from someone who has already chosen and opened their present. This goes on around the table until each gift is opened! Please remember to bring something small or portable, as many people choose to take transit or walk to the restaurant and large, bulky gifts are hard to carry home.
