I heard a term, am trying to figure out where it's from, and my google-fu has once again been stymied*. You lot know everything, so help!

Little brother's girlfriend's boss (yeah, I know) calls presents "serksies". Or "xerxes". Or "czercies". Or something.

Anyone familiar with the term and etymology, perchance?

SOLVED!!! Via SquintEastwood7 a surcee is: a southern US saying and implies a surprise or a gift given for no reason.

*If it seems like my google-fu gets stymied a lot, I can only say that you vastly underestimate the ridiculous number of things that catch my curiosity in the course of a day.
