Gift Guide: White Elephant Under $25

Header CollageWho doesn’t LOVE a White Elephant Gift Exchange?  It’s always a super fun time, but there are a few things to take into consideration before the party:

  • If you’re the hostess, be sure to plainly announce the cap dollar amount the gifts need to be.  At the party, right before the exchange, fully explain the rules.  This game has changed over the years and some people choose to do things differently than others and that’s OK, just make sure you tell your guests how YOU play.  Throughout the game the host/hostess needs to police the game to make sure things are being played by the rules announced.
  • If you are the guest, do NOT bring something that is more than the name dollar amount.  Conversely, don’t bring something too low either.  And take the group into context when selecting your gift.  If it’s a work function, don’t buy something too crude or inappropriate.  Finally, before the fun commences, ask the host what the rules are and play by them.

A few that always get stolen are: lottery tickets, bottles of cheap wine, cash, gift cards, and obnoxiously tacky holiday themed throw pillows.  Other than that, here are a few to consider.
