100dayswhiteA White Elephant gift exchange is a fun, quirky way to celebrate the Christmas season. It is the exact opposite of a typical gift giving party. Instead of being anxious about whether or not you’ve gotten a proper gift, the goal of a White Elephant gift exchange is to get something as wacky, weird, or random a possible. This might be a re-gifted item that you just can’t seem to get rid of or something hilarious that you pick up while you’re out.

To host a White Elephant gift exchange, tell people to wrap and bring a quirky gift. It might be something they already own or something new—if they buy something new, set a price limit. It should be low, around $5 or less. This makes the game fun for everyone and also tests everyone’s creativity! At the start of the party, everyone draws numbers. Then, starting with number one, each person picks a gift from the pile without opening it. When someone’s number is up, they can either grab a new gift from the table or steal someone else’s gift!

At the end, everyone opens their new gifts and has a good laugh. With some hot chocolate and Christmas cookies, your party will be the perfect way for friends or family to get together and have fun without spending much (or any) money.
