Thank – you letters.
Copy and cut up the pictures, so that there is one for each student in the class. You could make your own collection, using advertisements and magazine pictures.
Give out the pictures, one to each student, and tell them not to show their picture to enyone else.
Try to ensure that they each get particularly inappropriate pictures. Tell them that yesterday was their birthday, and they received this present from an old aunt.
They should write a thank-you letter to the aunt for the present, saying as politely as possible how lovely/useful/interesting the object is, but without mentioning what it is.
When they have finished, collect the letters and redistribute them,asking the students to guess what the object is in the letter they receive.
Alternatively, you could read out the letters and ask the class as a whole to guess, or pin the letters up around the classroom and ask the students to walk round, reading the letters and making a list of the presents.
