White Elephant is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. You don’t have to worry about curating perfect gifts for every single one of your vastly different family members, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars, and the game is always a great way to ignite some joy and laughter in the midst of the chaos of the holiday season. Now, don’t get it confused with Secret Santa where you choose gifts specifically for one particular person. White Elephant isn’t your average, everyday gift exchange.

For those looking to add some zest to their holiday get together, to participate in a White Elephant Gift Exchange, each player has to place one wrapped gift in the center of the room. Whether or not you want all the gifts to fall under some sort of theme is the organizer’s decision. They could be all wellness gifts, all gifts for traveling, a bunch of stocking stuffers, all spicy gifts for your girlfriends, or all experiences that each person in the pool would enjoy. Then everyone involved in the White Elephant exchange will draw numbers to determine the order they will go in. Starting at one, everyone will choose a random gift from the pile and open it. As the game progresses, players can either choose a gift from the center of the room, or steal a gift from someone else who has already picked. Anyone who gets their gift stolen has the opportunity to steal from someone else or pick a brand new gift. See, it’s fun right? I have quite a few White Elephant memories filled with tipsy aunts and uncles and picky cousins fighting for the biggest gift in the circle. 

Choosing a gift that works for everyone involved in the White Elephant gift exchange could be daunting. If you have no idea what type of gift could work for anyone in the room, keep reading for the best assortment of White Elephant gifts under $25.
