Dirt Santa Gifts Ideas by Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth

‘Tis the season for Christmas parties, festive cocktails, gingerbread decorating, and gift exchanges. While White Elephant gifts are more common, we actually prefer the Dirty Santa gift exchange.

They’re both similar in that they’re both competitive games where participants bring a wrapped gift. But a slight difference is why we prefer one over the other!

What is the Difference Between a White Elephant Gift Exchange and Dirty Santa Gift Exchange?

White Elephant gifts are typically funny gag gifts consisting of silly novelty items that you’d probably never buy yourself. Dirty Santa gifts are useful unique gifts.

Typically, the game is themed, and many times it can have a fun Christmas theme. If so, recipients bring a fun gift that is still functional. Before we delve into our favorite dirty Santa gift ideas, here’s how to play.

Dirty Santa Game Rules

The rules of the Dirty Santa game or the same as the White Elephant. So yes, stealing is still involved.

1 — First, all the wrapped gifts are placed under the Christmas tree, fireplace, or the menorah.

2 — Each player draws a random number that will determine their order of turns.

3 — Player #1 gets to choose the first gift, unwrap it and reveal it to the crowd.

4 — Then, each person takes their turn. They can decide to pick a gift from the pile OR steal an unwrapped open present. The number of steals allowed can be determined before the game starts. Typically, 3 is the max.

5 — Once everyone has a gift, it’s back to player #1, who never had a chance to steal. He/she/they can keep their gift or take anyones. So it’s ideal to always draw #1.

Now that you are familiar with the game, are you ready to start shopping for that coveted popular gift that everyone will want to steal? Here’s our list of the best dirty Santa gifts to bring to your holiday party…
