Funny White Elephant Gifts

Everyone loves a funny white elephant gift, and thankfully the season of gift exchange ideas is upon us! It’s a tradition for us to throw an annual game night holiday party. And we’ve started adding a white elephant gift exchange to the mix! Before we get started with the funny gift ideas, here’s how to a host a white elephant gift exchange…

How to Host a White Elephant Gift Exchange

There’s really no right or wrong way to play a white elephant gift game. You might have also heard it called “dirty santa game” or “yankee swap”. 

They’re essentially all very similar gift exchange games, and the rules can be as strict or as loose as you want them to be! Guests can bring any type of gift: family-friendly gifts, regifted gifts, funny gag gifts, or even old items from home. They’re typically lowered gifts under $20.

White Elephant Game rules —

  • Everyone brings a wrapped gift and places it in the center of the room where everyone can see
  • Players draw a random number to know when it’s their turn to pull a gift from the pile
  • The person who draws the number one will be the first to select a gift from the pile. Then, person number two will choose, and so on.
  • Person number two and every one after can either choose a gift from the pile or choose to steal an already opened gift 
  • Each gift can only be stolen 3 times. On the third steal, it’s officially claimed and can’t be in rotation any longer. 
  • You can also only steal from a single person 3 times before they’re exempt from being stolen from
  • The game continues until all the players have had a turn, the player that drew the number one now gets a chance to steal a gift back from someone else as long as the gift hasn’t already been stolen 3 times. 

Of course, there should always be an honorary best white elephant gift trophy for whoever brings the best Christmas gifts!

  1. I just wanted to point out that having what looks like a wad of cash hanging from your rear view mirror is a really risky move. Someone who sees your car parked might try to break in to get the “money”.

  2. These are all some great gift ideas! I will have to check some of these out for Christmas this year, indeed!

  3. Did you paint those trees yourself or buy them in MULTIPLE colors? My sister and I spray painted one of our trees gold this christmas and it turned out beautifully, but it took a lot longer than expected.

    Also, I have an amazon wish list of funny gift ideas and over half of this list is on there. haha! Along with literally everything from archie mcphee.
