This is the winning gift basket.

The Caps held their annual Better Halves gift basket auction on Friday, with the proceeds benefitting the Monumental Sports and Entertainment Foundation.

The top-earning gift basket was from none other than Caps forward Andre Burakovsky, which included a bunch of autographed stuff: a jersey, gloves, a bobblehead, game tickets, Game of Thrones win, Swedish Ballerina Choko cookies, and ginger snaps.

The baskets, or buckets, sold for a lot of money and contained a bunch of random things that the players autographed. The total amount raised was $50,800.
