The best white elephant gift-fun, useful and DIY ideas!
A series of best white elephant gifts-from fun white elephant gift ideas to useful DIY ideas, these gifts will surely bring a lot of laughter and “theft” at your next white elephant party.
White Elephant Party
We attend at least one white elephant party every year. Dining with the Luna family has become a tradition, and we often host parties with friends nearby. But what is a white elephant party?
White elephant gift exchanges are usually part of holiday gatherings, and the purpose is to provide entertainment rather than exchanging expensive gifts. These gifts are usually funny or impractical, and bring a lot of laughter to the attendees.
White elephant rule
Each white elephant runs differently, but generally follows the following general rules of thumb:
- Each participant will bring a wrapped gift to the swimming pool.
- Players draw numbers to understand the order of choosing gifts.
- Everyone is in a circle so they can see all the gifts in the middle.
- The person drawing #1 first picks the gift from the center and opens it.
- The following players can choose to steal the gift of the previous player or remove the unwrapped gift from the pool. If someone steals their gift, they can do the same thing—choose a new gift or steal someone else’s gift. Things to remember:
- Gifts can only be stolen once per round.
- A gift can only be stolen three times in total (otherwise things will be delayed-trust me!)
- The game ends with #1 playing again and exchanging his/her gifts with other people’s gifts.
You can play a variety of different games, but these are standard rules that everyone follows.
White elephant gift ideas
When we like to hold white elephant parties, we always hope for interesting but practical and useful gifts. The combination of the two gifts guarantees a lot of laughter and a lot of theft!
Each team’s competition will have different dynamics, but we think that having a variety of gifts will make it very interesting. Whether you are playing as a couple or as an individual, we always ask everyone to bring gifts to participate. In addition, if you are a custodian, it is best to prepare some extra gifts in case someone forgets the gifts. You want to make sure that everyone can play.
I want to collect this year’s best white elephant gifts for you to use. I divided it into two parts-interesting and useful. All are products found on Amazon, and I think they will help. 😉
