Could you be vague and say "We went out to dinner with it" or "I bought some clothes?"

no, because this just makes them think they should ask.

the ONLY excuse I could think of is if they somehow thought the department/group was buying it for you.

Then it makes sense to make sure someone didn't abscond w/ the gift Kitty.
(of course, this is solved by only giving trustworthy people the gift kitty.)
