Four people - Sam, Thalia, Victor, and Zach - sent four gifts: a diamond watch, a Best Buy gift card, a computer, and two baseball tickets. The people who received these gifts are named Joe, Jack, Jason, and Jill. Each gift was wrapped in a different color wrapping paper: blue and green, red and white, orange and yellow, and pink. Also, each gift was given at a different location: a bedroom, a restaurant, a living room, and a cruise. From the following clues figure, out who gave what gift, who received the gift, what color wrapping paper the gift was wrapped in, and where the gift was given.

Very nice. I got a little tripped up knowing if the two at the Christmas parties were at the same party, and thus gave the gift to each other.

Great teaser.. the two Christmas parties was a good but tricky hint. But then I realized that these were obviously two separate parties, and that Jack did not recieve a gift from Victor, so this eliminated a lot.

VERY WELL DONE! Keep them coming!

It's kinda weird to bring a whole computer to a restaurant, but I did like the puzzle

I've tried this puzzle several times and I still can't get the guy to guy gifts right. I can't see how we should determine that there were two Christmas parties. I keep falling into the trap of deciding there is only one. I wonder if I am missing something by not being a US citizen and missing some significance to the term, "best bud" or something like that.

Oh well, I'll try again in another couple of months when I have forgotten the steps I took this time, and I will come to it fresh. I won't let it defeat me!
