44 White Elephant Gifts Everyone Will Fight Over

By Laura Fiebert | Updated: October 26, 2023

    As the Christmas season rolls around, you might be invited to a White Elephant exchange party (aka Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa), where friends, family, or co-workers get together for a holiday party and exchange fun gifts.

    Of course, everyone will leave with a gift, but your favorite might likely get stolen from another participant. Don’t you want to be the one who brought the most sought-after white elephant gift to the holiday party? 

    Our gift guide has got you covered. Not only are these parties super fun, but they’re also the most fun to shop for. The key to a genuinely great White Elephant game is the gifts themselves. This is your chance to think outside the box and maybe find something a little outrageous (depending on your friend group).
