White elephant gift exchanges are just as much a part of the holiday season as mistletoe. Every year there are at least a few opportunities to come up with the craziest gift idea you can and join in a white elephant gift exchange. These white elephant gift ideas are some of our favorites and are sure to get a laugh at your holiday party.
Whether you love or hate white elephant gift exchanges, it seems like there is always at least one holiday event that includes one. I’ve had a lot of fun with them in the past, although if you want to hear the craziest white elephant gift I’ve received check out my Instagram Stories.
These white elephant gift ideas should take some of the stress out of your holiday season. I like to have at least one on hand for any surprise holiday parties that come up because we all know that the holiday season never really goes according to plan.
White Elephant Gift Ideas Under $15
Gag Gift Tree Plunger
I know this is supposed to be a gag gift but I actually think this tree plunger would be a fun way to decorate the bathroom for the holiday season.
If nothing else, it would certainly take your guests by surprise.
I love the idea of this as a white elephant gift idea because it isn’t something you’d expect.
I could see this as the hot item to trade during a white elephant gift exchange.
Farting Animals Coloring Book
I have legitimately sent this coloring book with my teenager to a white elephant gift exchange. He was super embarrassed. I thought it was hilarious.
He still brings this up when he wants to remind me that I know how to embarrass him in front of his friends. He was a good sport about it.
This is a super affordable white elephant gift idea and one that is guaranteed to get people talking at your holiday party.
World’s Okayest Employee Mug
This mug would be a funny addition to your holiday work party. . . just be sure that you aren’t the one that ends up with this at the end of the night.
This would definitely get some laughs, but on the positive side, it would also be useful after the holiday party is over. Everyone can always use an extra work mug.
Now, I’m not a big fan of candy canes anyway, but these seafood flavored Clamdy Canes are pretty much the last thing on my list of things to try this holiday season.
I’m not sure these would be something anyone would enjoy getting but they’d sure take everyone by surprise.
They would definitely be a conversation starter if nothing else.
There are some people who REALLY like pickles out there. These socks are definitely for them. I know I have at least one kid who would seriously get a kick out of these, whether it was at a white elephant gift exchange or in his holiday stocking this year.
The bottom of these socks read “If you can read this, bring me a pickle”.
These would be so much fun for a white elephant gift exchange and would likely get some use after the party is over too.
Poop Emoji Soap
What is it about the poop emoji that makes everyone laugh? I swear, it’s my kids’ favorite emoji. Go figure.
This poop emoji soap is practical and hilarious and perfect for a white elephant gift exchange.
At under $10, this is a great option for your next holiday party.
This is just an empty box but it will certainly get a reaction when it is opened!
Put your real white elephant gift inside the box. Because the box is so funny, you could get away with putting anything in it that you find around the house . . . or pantry.
This is a great way to get a white elephant gift when you are on a budget. The box itself is affordable and anything goes on the inside.
The muffin top is a sad reality this time of year. Why not embrace it with these Muffin Tops Baking Cups?
These would be hilarious as a white elephant gift idea and could potentially make you think twice the next time you reach for a muffin.
That sounds like a diet plan for the new year to me!
I kind of want one of these for myself so that the next time my kids start whining about chores I can play a tiny violin.
This Miniature violin is a great choice for a white elephant gift. Perfect for both an office party setting or at a party with family and friends, everyone is going to get a kick out of this.
I don’t know anyone who hasn’t had at least a few opportunities (especially during the holiday season) to play a tiny violin. I honestly may be adding this to my own Christmas list.
If there’s one thing you can always use, it’s emergency underpants.
These emergency underpants make the perfect gag gift and fit right in at a white elephant gift exchange.
These will definitely get some laughs at your next holiday party and they are a super affordable white elephant gift idea.
You can’t go wrong with these if you are looking for a funny gift and the packaging is adorable too. I may grab a few just to have on hand for future holiday parties. Never hurts to be prepared.
Everyone loves a good dad joke. Don’t they?
This book of 101 “So Bad, They’re Good” Dad Jokes is a great fit for a holiday white elephant gift exchange (or as a gift for dad if he needs some help with his dad joke game).
This is another really affordable white elephant gift option and one that doesn’t rely on potty humor if you want something a little cleaner.
We love the mermaid pillows in my house. Every time we have a movie night we pull them out so we can . have something to fiddle with while watching the movie.
This Nicolas Cage Mermaid Pillow takes things a step further. When you reverse the sequins you reveal nothing other than the face of Nicolas Cage.
Who wouldn’t love that?
This nose pencil sharpener would be hilarious, especially at an office Christmas party (although I’m sure my kids would get a kick out of this too.
This is one of the lowest priced white elephant gift ideas you can find, so if you are a budget, this is a great option.
This would definitely turn some heads at the lunch table and would make a fun addition to a white elephant gift exchange.
This E.M.T. (or Emergency Meal Transport) Insulated Lunch tote is a great white elephant gift option and can be used after the party is over, if you are feeling brave.
You could probably DIY this if you are feeling crafty and have an old lunch tote too.
I mean, everyone loves bacon, right?
These bacon bandages should be in every first-aid kit and are a great choice for a white elephant gift idea.
It says “touch & feel” on the box, so I’m assuming these have the texture of bacon, possibly, or else there is some other reason you’d want to touch these.
Either way, great gift idea.
