Idea for Christmas mystery gifting...

I know its a long way off still but I thought maybe I would bring it up to start discussion on it.
I think it would be cool to have like a mystery gift type thing. Everyone who would want to participate would PM their addresses. Once all the addresses where gathered up, I would toss all the names into a simple randomizing program that I wrote in programing class, and would then PM the address of the person they were gifting to.
Everyone would know who they were gifting to, but not know who gifted them until everyone had their gift. Would be looking at no more than $25-$30 in gift(cigar related of course). Gift value could be discussed to find a price point that everyone would be comfortable with.
So what do you guys think? I would like to see this happen. Obviously this would need to wait until close to Christmas. I had it on my mind and just wanted to go ahead and put it on the table for discussion.

I would like to see all the active members get involved in this!

That's not a bad idea. However, it may be hard for people with new families. (Like me) I don't think I could justify, to my wife, spending money on one of you for X-mas after I said that no one is getting a present from us because of the baby!

Oh, screw it! Count me in! I just won't tell her!
