15 Best White Elephant Gifts for Your Next Holiday Party

Holiday season is in full force, and with that comes attending and hosting parties. One popular game you might be gearing up for is a white elephant exchange. These are great for coworkers, friends, or close family members, as the best white elephant gifts are often affordable and funny. But even better is that there’s always a chance to snatch an item from someone else—and hey, we love a little friendly competition around here!
