Finding the right gift for a white elephant is an art. You can go the crazy route and buy a gag gift that will stand out from the crowd. Or you can find a niche gift that is so sought after that it triggers endless rounds of stealing. However, the holy grail of white elephant gifts can do both.
For the uninitiated, the White Elephant Gift Exchange is an easy and fun way to exchange gifts in a large group, be it with colleagues, groups of friends, or extended families.
The exercise of giving away white elephants: Each one comes with a wrapped gift, preferably a slightly eccentric one. Participants draw numbers to set the order. The first person opens a wrapped present. In the following moves, each person can choose whether to unwrap a new gift or steal someone else’s gift. If your gift is stolen, you can choose another gift to open or steal one from someone else.
When a party invitation is pending, here are 22 great white elephant gifts under $ 25 that will excite the crowd:
