Best White Elephant Gift Ideas

So, you need some white elephant gift ideas for a Christmas or holiday gift exchange party. These are usually unisex gifts - that is, gifts that can be given to either a man or a woman. Generally speaking, they should be amusing yet useful. They can be something you already own or a quirky novelty item you might have run across while shopping. Re-gifting is acceptable.

The whole idea behind a white elephant gift exchange is that everyone brings one present, but no one knows who will get which gift. It's a game during which you can swap and steal the gifts of the other players. There are many different variations of this popular holiday party game but the goal is to end up with the "best" gift.

Participants are often very competitive when it comes to bringing the most desired gift. They will sometimes play-bicker and banter back and forth during the game when an exchange is made. You don't want your gift to be the one no one wants to end up with, so it's important to put some thought into it. Consider some of these white elephant gift ideas for the next holiday party you attend.

Fun & Games White Elephant Gift Ideas

Games can make fun gifts while keeping the cost down. The best part is that they can give party-goers another way to entertain themselves during lulls in the festivities. Some of the more popular games include:

  • Bananagrams
  • Rory's Story Cubes
  • Apples to Apples
  • Spot It!
  • Card Against Humanity (best for adults only)

Redneck Gifts

These have always been a big hit at every gift exchange I've ever been to. Just Google them or search for them on Amazon. Some of them you could even make yourself to give it that extra personal touch!

  • Redneck wine glasses
  • 6-pack beer can camo holster belt
  • Beer can wind chimes
  • Shotgun shell belts
  • A deer or duck toilet paper holder
  • Camouflage toilet paper

Useless But Funny Gifts

These white elephant gifts are completely useless, but still entertaining. Just watch the expression on the recipient's face when they end up with a brand-spanking-new can of unicorn meat. Priceless.

  • Yodeling Pickle (My personal favorite!)
  • Canned Unicorn Meat
  • Fortune Telling Miracle Fish
  • Slingshot Flying Screaming Monkey or Barnyard Chicken
  • Giant Microbes E. Coli plush toy (yes, there really is a stuffed e. coli doll)

Hopefully you've gotten some good white elephant gift ideas from this list. Remember, the key to finding the perfect unisex Christmas gifts is just to make sure it's something you would like to receive for yourself. What gift would you find humorous or entertaining? Chances are, so will others.
