Stocking Stuffers

Happy Hanukkah! In this family, we have some strange traditions. First, we hang stockings, but don't tell the kids which gift goes in which stocking. After they sort it all out, the kids play a round of white elephant and give each other presents. And Mom always reserves one special Hanukkah gift for everyone after it’s all done. What is it?
