10 Insanely Creative Ideas For White Elephant Gifts

White Elephant, Dirty Santa, Yankee Swap—whatever you call this holiday party game, everyone who’s familiar with it knows how fun it can be! If you haven’t heard of this game, it’s a pretty simple concept. People get together and bring a wrapped gift that’s not addressed to or from anybody. They’re all placed in a central location, and people will take turns selecting a gift. During each turn, a person can either choose to unwrap a new present or steal someone else’s present. If a person’s present is stolen, they can either unwrap a new one or steal someone else’s. Obviously, to avoid an endless circle of gift stealing, gifts are only allowed one steal per turn. The game is over once everyone has a present.

Most of the gifts are meant to be gags, but there are also some that are worth competing for! If you and your friends or coworkers are planning to have a White Elephant gift exchange this year, here are some gifts that you could consider getting.

1. Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers
