Whatever happens, someone is putting in Crown Royal whisky and I'm stealing it.

I am looking for gift ideas for a Pollyanna gift exchange. The theme for the gift is "Royalty". The rules of the exchange allow various forms of trading so it doesn't have to be a gift targeted to any specific type of individual, just fit the theme. The participants are adults. Price range would be $25-$50.

You can take your pick from a zillion Kate Middleton jewellery knock offs that are actually quite nice - here are some earrings, here's the engagement ring. Or, how about a corgi tote bag? Faux-ermine scarf? Or tea cup (which I totally now want, thanks.)

Do we have options outside of "royal" meaning monarchy? Because you know, depending on the crowd, this could be a super wide and very fun remit...

If you want to class it up a bit, buy a decent bottle of plonk and wrap it in this. They'll never see it coming.

Creative interpretation of the theme is part of the fun, go wherever it takes you.

Royal crest, Legend of Zelda. Royal crown wax sealing kit. Royal typewriter coasters. Tiara soap set. Royal typewriter t-shirt. Etc.

And for the gift nobody wants, a Crown Royal liquor bottle lamp.

Tea pot with Pennyroyal Tea, or Earl Grey.

There's a wonderful card game called Royalty; it's similar to Scrabble. (If you play the word Royalty in the game, the rules state that all other players must stand in tribute!)

Dominion the card game or royal honey

Riffing on royalty = king: Elvis shades + lei + CDs/DVDs (I recommend Viva Las Vegas, Clambake, and Roustabout) + peanut butter/banana sandwich (Cadillac optional)
Or, y'know, Burger King gift certificates
