Gift Exchange: $5-15. On arrival, your astronomy, science, or other gift will be displayed on the gift table,
and you can choose a number from the pot.
After our meal, you can choose any gift when it is your turn/number. Then offers to swap can be made.
All gifts will then be opened. This makes for a lot of speculation, intrigue, negotiating, and fun!
It's not the gift that counts but the happiness we bring to each other.
All, especially children, are encouraged to make something, satellite models (many available free online), paper weights, mugs, night lights, or other.
