It’s that time of year! Christmas and holiday parties for friends, family, and offices are almost upon us. For many of these parties that means the annual gift exchange and swap. Now the name may change depending on where you live, but Yankee Swap, Dirty Santa, and White Elephant are all the same name for the same game. You bring a bizarre, fun gift to be opened among friends, and then everyone can decide to trade, swap or keep their gifts. If you’re like me though, you probably try to find something different every year. Maybe you are even planning on getting a particular gift with a certain person in mind. Either way, we wanted to help you out so we’ve put together a list of 11 white elephant gifts that are sure to get traded a few times in the circle. Check out below. 

  • 1) Mini Desktop Golf

    Mini Desktop Golf Kit

    Because let’s face it, some of us want to be on the golf course rather than in the office. But we typically can’t do that and that’s why this mini desktop golf set is fun. It allows us to enjoy that little fun of being on the green while sitting down at your desk. Plus, the simplicity of the gift makes it perfect for the Yankee Swap/White Elephant.

  • 2) Lightsaber Chopsticks

    These are incredible! You don’t have to be a massive Star Wars fan to know that these are cool. These are available in a variety of different colors and trust me these will get snagged really quickly during the swap!

  • 3) Ice Cream Pint Hugger

    Sometimes I realize that there are people in the world who are just genius! These ice cream pint huggers need to be in my life a lot earlier than now. I hate when my hands melt the ice cream or they get so cold I can’t hold it. And because I’m lazy by nature I will say that dirtying a dish is not usually part of the plan. So now not only am I asking for this for Christmas, but I’m buying one for my friend’s White Elephant game.

    Bob Ross is a cultural icon that continues to bring people joy. And honesty you can never go wrong with Bob Ross. This mug not only features the painter, but when you fill it up with your favorite warm beverage it reveals a beautiful picture behind him.

    Speaking of curse words, this mug makes me laugh. It has some really bizarre birds on it with names that just sound well… foul. Get the pun?

  • 10) Desktop Cleaner

    This screen cleaner is brilliant. Another viral TikTok product (that yes, I bought already) is great for cleaning tablets, cell phones, laptop screens, etc. The bottle not only acts as the spray, but it is also the cloth. The fabric around the bottle acts as a cloth and truly it’s just weird enough that someone in your group will get a kick out of it.
