I wasn't even going to participate, but your lovely wife guilted me into doing it, so I'm bringing whatever I want. :P
You are correct - we had this discussion at a white elephant party last weekend.
In fact, you are supposed to bring a cheesy gift.
However, one person brings a bottle of Jack or wine one year. The next year - 2 people do. 3 years later you have 80% bottles of booze, 15% other cool stuff, and 5% of people who bring cheesy gifts and get yelled at
