The Best White Elephant Gift Ideas For Or Less
When that holiday party invite pops up in your inbox—and you learn that there's a game of white elephant in store—don't get too caught up in trying to pick out something that everyone who's invited would actually want. Instead, I recommend you focus on finding something that's just as entertaining to see opened as it is useful (if not more so).
Stumped? Check out these hilarious white elephant gift ideas—all for or less. They'll score you some smiles, whether you're at your office gathering or your friend's ugly sweater party—and definitely spark some fun conversation.
1. Classy Sassy Bad Assy Mug
This mug is so insanely tacky (Comic Sans font? Really?!) and thus the perfect white elephant gift. Just think about Pete from the accounting department unwrapping it—and then using it every damn day. Priceless.
2. The Only Gift Worth Giving Wine Stoppers
Because a bottle of wine might be too on the nose, try giving out this funny gift pack of five rubber wine bottle toppers instead, each with its own groan-worthy wine pun.
3. Fairly Odd Novelties Moustache Ice Cube Tray Mold
You can never have enough mustache novelty items. And with any luck, the cocktail snob in the office will unwrap this.
4. Someecards Uncensored Assorted Coasters
One fave: “I’d like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals.”
5. Tricerataco Double Taco Holder
It's a triceratops! And a taco holder! And you'll definitely want to buy one for yourself, too.
6.Crafting with Cat HairBook
Cat jokes never go out of style, and this book teaches you “how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts” like tote bags and picture frames. And yes, you can really make these.
7. Bob Ross Self-Painting Color Changing Coffee Mug
Another mug you can't go wrong with, especially if you're in a crowd that's artsy (or, let's be honest, old) enough to appreciate the Bob Ross reference.
8. Maybe Swearing Will Help: Adult Coloring Book
This gift puts the "adult" in "adult coloring book." Add a pack of so the white elephant recipient can start rage-coloring immediately.
9. Craft Cooking Kits Ugly Sweater Sugar Cookie Kit
Instead of blowing a ton of $ on an actual ugly sweater (which are always way more expensive than expected), give the gift of an edible ugly sweater instead.
10. BlueQ "Hellraiser" Ankle Socks
Who can resist these hilarious, vintage-inspired socks with a ton of 'tude?
11.Hipster Santa Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Kit
Why a hipster Santa? No idea! But that's part of what makes this gift so hilariously random.
12.Sloths 2019 16-Month Wall Calendar
The person at the party who considers the sloth their spirit animal will fight someone to end up with this white elephant gift.
13.Caboodles Pink Vintage Case
Any '90s child will flip over the chance to store her makeup in one of these Caboodle cases again.
14.Hot Dog Stapler
Functional and effing weird—the perfect combo for a winning white elephant present.
15.Twig Marshmallow Skewer
For the resident s'mores aficionado.
16. Henry Googly Eye Planter
Haven't you heard that plants are the new cats?
17. Squat N Go 7” Folding Squatting Stool
People swear these stools help them go number two more comfortably. But also...lol...poop.
18. PacMan Ghost Rain Ponchos
This gift works equally well for '80s fans andReady Player Onefans.
19.Flapjacks Stylish Designer Laptop Keyboard Cover for Apple Magic Keyboard in Donut Pattern
Perfect a game of workplace white elephant since the recipient can put it on their office keyboard ASAP...but you may get blamed for their constant donut cravings.
20.Kingsley South Pole Penguin Soft Touch Winged Wine Opener Corkscrew
Warning: Some of the reviewers say this product doesn't actually open wine that well. Imagine that!
