White Elephant Gift Guide

When I tweeted about potentially doing one more gift guide, a few of y'all suggested a white elephant gift guide!  If you're unfamiliar with white elephant gifting, it's a game where anything goes, but you're encouraged to bring a funny gift.  It's often played similar to "Dirty Santa" where you pick a wrapped gift, but also have the opportunity to steal a gift someone else has already opened.  This was a really fun gift guide to create, and also a challenging one because my typical white elephant gift is a six pack and bottle opener wrapped in the fanciest, girliest wrapping paper I can find.  Here are ten fun gifts, all under $20 and all Amazon Prime eligible.




Poo-Pourri ($10)  // Maybe a little crude, but a lot practical.  Here's to hoping whoever wins this one leaves it in the office bathroom!

Dammit Doll ($16)  // My friend Cori's mom bought me one of these with ladybugs all over it, and I kept it at my desk for the longest time.  It's a stress relief doll, and its made to be smacked against things when you're having a bad day!

Dachshund Scarf ($15)  // I laugh my butt off every time I see this.

Watermelon Neckpillow ($15) // My favorite thing about this gift is imagining that whoever wins is probably sitting at home relaxing and using this thing!

Hand Pencil Cup ($19)  // Kind of creepy, but definitely funny and useful.

Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Snob ($14)  //  Instant fancy.

Dinosaur Soup Ladle ($10)  // I love white elephant gifts that are actually practical!  Bonus points if you include a bag of overpriced, gourmet soup mix with this one.

'All My Friends Are Dead' Book ($7)  // Prepare to LOL while reading this book.

Tabletop Zen Garden ($18)  // Perfect for a workplace white elephant... Here's to hoping that Mr. or Mrs. Busy gets this one!

Farm Animal Butt Magnets ($12)  // My mom gave me the dog version of these magnets, and they are currently on my fridge.  Catching a glimpse of them always makes me smile, especially when I'm having a bad day!


I want to hear from y'all!  What was the best white elephant gift that you ever gave or received?!

Also, I'm gearing up for another Q&A post, so if you have any questions, send them my way!

Happy Thursday, y'all!  We're one day closer to the weekend!

  8. When I first saw the Daschund scarf, I couldn't decide if I thought it was funny, really adorable or would be something I would actually wear. I've decided it's all three, haha! Great post, D!
