20. The Prank Gift:

If you are hosting a Christmas Party and plan on having a White Elephant Gift Exchange, be sure, to include a few “Prank Gifts” amongst the presents. “Prank Gifts” can be the most random stuff you can find/purchase anywhere or in your own home.

This type of presents should be the most random items that’ll have people dying of laughter and/or going “WTF?” Ideas for “Prank Gifts” include an avocado, wrapping up a shoebox with nothing inside of it, or putting a bunch of small boxes into a big box so the person opening has to keep opening up it up one by one to find the gift, to name a few.

Just make sure whoever opens up a prank gift gets another turn to get a real present.
