The Best White Elephant Gift Exchange Ideas

Does everyone agree white elephant gift exchanges are so much fun? But when you go to parties with super clever friends who give super clever gifts, there can be a lot of pressure to not be the one who brings the lame gift that no one wants to steal. Amirite? So if a white elephant gift exchange is on your list of holiday parties this year, listen up for some fun gift ideas. Thanks to those who contributed ideas on Instagram!

  • PopSolo – because who doesn’t love karaoke?!
  • Chambong – just keeping it classy, folks
  • Squatty Potty – yes, for real. Funny. People might not admit it, but they might actually want it.
  • Craft beer caddy filled with six Christmas beers from different breweries – the craft beer folks love this one
  • Bitcoin – will it turn to gold one day and make them rich?
  • Rotowipe – one of several hilarious prank boxes for a ridiculous gift… that you put something else unrelated inside
  • Fanny pack that looks like a man’s belly – one that always gets lots of giggles, but functional 😉
  • Picture of yourself as your version of Santa… with a gift card stashed behind – as if you weren’t enough, this recipient might walk out with the most valuable gift!
  • Mr. & Mrs. Doo Toilet Bowl Refresher & a pack of toilet paper – necessary? Yes.
  • Daddy Shark plush toy that sings shark song that we all know and love – the kids might love you, the parents might hate you, but they’re the ones who can choose whether or not to bring it home (NOTE: when writing this blog post, I swear this thing was like $14. Now I’m not seeing one for less than $40. It’s funny, but maybe not that funny unless you can find a cheaper one.)
  • Growlers filled with local craft (Christmas) beer – can you tell I’m a beer nerd yet?
  • Insulated wine sleeve with bottle of wine – can’t go wrong here
  • Color map mugs – totally clean here and great for travelers
  • Avocado tree starter kit – say whaaaaaaat? I’m totally taking this one.

Ok, I could probably go on for days, but I hope this gets your juices started for some great white elephant gift ideas. Quick links below for reference if you want to hop on any of these ideas.
