Around the holidays, many offices and friend groups realize it’s too expensive to buy individual gifts for everyone. While some do “Secret Santa” gift exchanges, many others hold “White Elephant” parties instead.
White elephants, also known as yankee swaps, are when everyone brings a wrapped gift to exchange but the gift is for no one in particular. Instead, everyone draws a number and whoever gets number one starts by opening a gift of their choosing. The next person can either open another gift, or steal a previous person’s gift. This goes on until everyone has a present. Typically, gifts can only be stolen twice in order to keep the game moving.
White elephants are a great way to give gifts when not everyone knows each other or knows what other participants may like. The ability to steal gifts also makes the exchange more exciting, but choosing the perfect white elephant gift can be difficult – you’ll want to buy something that is both useful but also fun for whoever unwraps it. Even better, you might supply the gift that everyone wants to steal!
A: This depends on who is hosting the white elephant and who the participants are. If you’re having a white elephant party with a group of friends, it can often be more fun to get gag gifts that will get the guests laughing. But if it’s an office white elephant, you might want to lean toward something more practical. We think the best gifts are ones that both have a little humor but are also useful.
A: Again, this should be up to the host. However, most white elephant parties have a price range between $15 to $25. This is a perfect price point for gifts that aren’t cheap quality but won’t break the bank for someone you might not know too well.
A: Unfortunately, when the game ends you’re stuck with the gift you get. But since many people attend more than one gift exchange per holiday season, you can always regift it. We have found that a good rule of thumb for white elephants is to get a gift you would be excited about receiving. If you don’t like the gift you supplied, chances are other people will feel the same.
