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 ($14) // 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 ($16)) // 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 ($15) // 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 ($10) // Prepare to LOL while reading this book.
Tabletop Zen Garden ($22) // Perfect for a workplace white elephant… Here’s to hoping that Mr. or Mrs. Busy gets this one!
Farm Animal Butt Magnets ($11) // 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!
