Each year my family engages in a White Elephant gift giving game and there are always some great gifts to be found and some quite funny gifts to be found. In case you don’t know, a White Elephant gift giving game requires each person to bring a wrapped gift of a certain value to the party. This gift won’t have any designated recipient and will be given anonymously. Each person will start the
game by drawing a number. That number will designate which order each person chooses their gift out of the pool of gifts that were brought. When it’s a person’s turn to choose a gift they can either pick a new gift or steal a gift from a person that has already chosen. Sometimes there is a limit on how many times one individual gift can be stolen.
Here are a few gag style gifts that will leave the recipient holding the bag (of gift) the rest of the game as most people won’t want to steal it:
This big game dressing tool will leave most people laughing in hysterics, though if there’s a redneck in the crowd he may just love it.
The ultimate gag gift for your white elephant party. The fruit cake is known as one of the worst gifts to give someone for Christmas.
This gift will create a stinkin’ uproar when it’s opened in front of everyone.
While the cassette player would have been the gift to give in the 1980’s, this would be a great gag gift as most people don’t have tape cassettes around anymore.
Here are a few great gifts that the White Elephant participants will do everything they can to get their hands on it:
You can buy virtually anything on Amazon and because of that everyone will want to stuff that into their wallet at the end of the party.
Every adult had knives in their kitchen as my experience is that most of them are dull. This 10-second Knife and Scissors Sharpener is a very easy to use tool and works great! People just might stab each other in the back to get this gift.
Mac Cutting Boards makes awesome cheese boards and cutting boards. You can get them custom made and these boards are super nice. People will try to hide this board once they open it so that others don’t steal it
during the game.
This is the tastiest, most addicting popcorn ever. Someone might actually get in a fight for stealing this gift. Just writing about it makes my mouth water.
There you go! Above are some great gag gifts and gifts that people will want to steal over and over.
