23 Amazing White Elephants Gifts That Everyone Will Fight for This Christmas
If you tend to get a little stressed shopping for Christmas gifts that everyone on your list will enjoy, there's no stress like planned exchanges. From Secret Santa to an office gift exchange, the ultimate fun (but intense) gift-giving exchange is White Elephant. Truly, it doesn't get more eventful than getting attached to a gift that might not be yours by the end of the night. If you agreed to participate in White Elephant this year and are not sure what you got yourself into, here's a quick run-through: All participants purchase a great gift worth the same amount and choose at an agreed order who chooses a random gift out of the group. If you look in the pile of wrapped gifts and sense the person next to you has something awesome, you can use your turn to snag from them, instead of the pile.
At this point, there's a huge smile on your face because you're holding a huge box that feels pretty heavy. But don't get too excited because your pride and joy has a huge possibility of becoming a distant memory if someone chooses your gift instead of an item from the pile of gifts. Soon enough, the exchange is over and it's pretty rare that you end up with the gift you started with. For such an intense rollercoaster of emotions and sweet revenge, it would totally take you out of the holiday spirit if you receive a lame gift. Whether you're a last-minute shopper or into festive DIY projects, we've found gifts sure to keep a smile on everyone's face. If you're hoping your friends finally take a hint on what gifts you'll never want to let go of, share the list below.
