White Elephant Gifts


If you’ve ever participated in a White Elephant gift exchange then you know how fun they can be!

And maybe you are not even sure what a White Elephant game is!

What is a White Elephant Gift?

According to Wikipedia, a white elephant gift exchange is a party game where white elephant gifts are exchanged during festivities. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain.

Sometimes you will go home with an awesome gift- and other times- maybe not so much. But those are the best gifts to give and get in my opinion. It is always more fun to see the gag-gifts go around. And you might just come home with something that was meant as a gag gift- but you actually really like.

Every year our neighborhood has a White Elephant gift exchange and every year we try and top last years treasures. If you are heading to a party and are asked to bring a White Elephant gift then you will definitely want to check out our list of some of the best White Elephant gifts out there!

White Elephant Rules

There are a lot of variations on how to play a white elephant game, but according to Elephant Rules, these are the official ones (click over to the website for more details on each rule).

  • Each player must bring one gift
  • Gifts must be wrapped
  • Players must open and steal gifts orderly – most often, you will draw a number to determine when it is your turn to open or steal a gift. Whoever gets the last position definitely has the most advantage 🙂
  • No immediate re-stealing – so if someone steals your gift, you can’t steal it back right then. However, if someone steals your gift, you pick another gift, and then someone steals your gift again, you could go back to the original gift and steal it.
  • Each player walks away with the final gift they are holding.

This website also has some different variations on how to play a White Elephant game, so definitely check those out.
