Everything was so good.   So now to open the gifts.
 
Rules of this game is
Pick a number from the cup.

Number 1 picks a gift, opens it up.
Everyone sees what it is,
the one that has number 2 can take the gift if they like it
 and then the one that has the number before that can choose another gift.
