White Elephant Gift Ideas

We've been putting a lot of thought into what really makes for the perfect White Elephant gift, and we are pretty sure we have it figured out. All of the best White Elephant gifts have two things in common. They are quirky, or unique, yet practical. And if you think about it, that makes complete sense. No one wants a boring gift, that's not any fun in a gift exchange. The only thing worse than a boring gift is one that is so impractical that it's completely useless! With these two features in mind, we have crafted the perfect guide to White Elephant gifts. The gifts you'll find below ride the fine line that makes for the perfect gift.


Moose Punch Bowl        Game of Thrones Coasters       Hogwarts Tumbler     Chewbacca Cooler Sleeve  Toilet Mug

"How Was Your Day?" Wine Glass      Tipsy Wine Glasses      Oh The Places You'll Go Water Bottle

House Lannister Stemless Wine Glasses

Coffee mugs are truly a staple of gift exchanges. What you don’t often see, however, are mugs that look like a toilet. This little mug is sure to get a lot of laughs, and paired with some gourmet coffee grounds, this makes for a fantastic white elephant gift. Another honorable mention would be the House Lannister stemless wine glasses. These tastefully designed glasses are going to be a crowd favorite with any Game of Thrones fans.


Marauder's Map Hat    Grinch Character Hoodie    Chewbacca Ski Mask     Bumble Hoodie Hat

Marty McFly Hat              Captain America Winter Hat

This Chewbacca ski mask would be a favorite among skiers and bank robbers alike. You're going to have to be careful who gets their hands on this ski mask. If a bank robber does, we can already picture the headlines: "HILARIOUS WOOKIEE BANK ROBBER CAUGHT, $1.5 MILLION STILL MISSING." Worse yet is the statement from the Chief of Police: "We have agreed to let him go if he gives up one crucial piece of information: where did he get that mask? It's, like, really funny, lol. He is so funny, and he's going to let me borrow the mask when I go skiing with my in-laws. They are going to love it."

For the Home 

Cat DJ Scratching Deck    Rocking BBQ Spatula     Face Coaster Set

Death Star Planetarium     Clone Cutting Board     Packers Tailgate Set

Another great option for white Elephant gift exchanges are gifts for the home. There are a lot of wonderful pieces in this collage, but we both know that nothing even compares to the cat scratching deck. This ingenious gift turns your cat into a DJ every time they scratch. However, if the cat starts asking for a sound cloud, we recommend you take away the scratching deck immediately. Regardless, If a lot of people have cats in your gift exchange, this one is a must.


Broncos Moccasin      Broncos Slippers     Batman Patterned Sunglasses      DC Comics Sunglasses       Wonder Woman Sunglasses

Orange Crush Socks         Buddy The Elf Socks       Batman Cape Socks        Groot and Rocket Wallet

Another wise choice for your gift exchange might be one of these accessories. Our Batman socks come complete with a cape on each calf, meaning that their owner will feel like a superhero anytime they take off their shoes. Are you witnessing a mugging, but you're without your Batsuit? Not a problem, strip down to your batman socks and you will be successfully undercover, we think.


The Walking Dead Trivial Pursuit     Game of Thrones Puzzle    A Christmas Story Game    Harry Potter Puzzle

Star Wars Eye Found It           Small Blaze Dart Gun

Games and puzzles are always a good option for gift exchanges. Do you know a Harry Potter fan? Of course you do! The odds of you not knowing a Harry Potter fan are worse than the odds of successfully breaking into Gringotts Wizarding bank. (In case you don’t remember, those odds are pretty terrible.) The point is, this Harry Potter puzzle will undoubtedly be a strong contender with any crowd.

When it comes to gift exchanges, it really comes down to reading the crowd. Between your knowledge of who your buying for, and our wide variety of gifts, we are absolutely positive that there is the perfect gift for any gift exchange somewhere in this guide.  Pick the right gift, and you'll be watching people chase your gift all the way around the room. What do you thnk? Did you find what you were looking for? If you have any advice for other White Elephant shoppers, please post it down below before picking the best gift. After all, the more help the better. Thank you for reading, and happy holidays!
