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.

looking for 1974 tv movie version of Little Match Girl starring Lynsey Baxter

Can anyone tell me where I could find a copy (legit or not) of the 1974 TV movie "The Little Match Girl" (IMDB info here) that starred Lynsey Baxter. It was a great, particularly dark version, and I'd like to show it to my family this holiday. Any leads appreciated. It was originally produced by a TV station in Cincinnatti. I am not interested in any other version than this one. Thanks!

For it is in giving that we receive

What are some workplace holiday gift ideas for my two hip, cultured, smart, (and imo underpaid) mid-20s employees? They're full-time employees and I work with them very closely. I want to get them really great gifts that aren't wildly impersonal and aren't for the workplace, in the $75-100 range and not food- or drink-related. All I can think of is spa gift cards. Surely there are better ideas, right?
