33 Best White Elephant Gifts 2019

33 Best White Elephant Gifts 2019

White elephant gift exchange is a popular party game where players are supposed to ‘steal’ gifts from each other rather than swap them like in Yankee Swap. The name comes from the idiom meaning a useless thing that is difficult to get rid of.

The whole point of white elephant gift exchange is to entertain partygoers. Basically, players are supposed to bring gag gifts, something very original and funny. The list of 33 Best White Elephant Gift Ideas may help you to pick your perfect white elephant gift and surprise your peers.
