What's better than Dirty Santa?

I'm looking for a fun way to exchange gifts other than Dirty Santa.

We get together, about 20 of us: my sister, brother, our parents and all our children who are grown) We each buy one gift for $25.00 or less, for the symbolism as much as anything cuz we've all got everything we need and more crap than we have room for. We'd like to find a fun game or activity as a way to pass the gifts out. We could draw numbers out of a hat, but how much fun is that? Every time I've ever taken part in Dirty Santa it seems as if somebody always winds up pissed off or bummed out that they didn't get the gift they wanted, so Dirty Santa is out. (They don't call it "dirty" Santa for nothing.) It's not a day on which we need any more drama than is already inherent, if you get my drift.
What's a fun, innocuous game/activity we could use as a way to distribute the gifts?
