Secret Santa

Submitted By: Jax2

Difficulty: hard

Each year at Christmas time, the Acme (tm) corporation holds their annual Christmas In December extravaganza.

In the beginning, the top 5 executives had come to an agreement that they would randomly choose one of the companies employees and be their "Secret Santa", each spending no more than $50.00 on their gift.

As the years passed, however, a competition seemed to arise where each executive would try to outdo the other in their gift giving and the $50.00 price limit was forgotten. Here we are 20 years later! Your task is to figure out which of the 5 executives gave a gift to which employee as well as what that gift was.

As a bonus, figure out the value of each gift in order from most expensive to least expensive! Good luck!
