Going to a Christmas party where you’ll play the White Elephant Gag Gift Christmas Exchange? Want a gift that will bring lots of laughs but at the same time could be something practical to someone? Here are some ideas for a White Elephant Christmas Gift Exchange Party Game.
A Fire Extinguisher: It’s an odd, but wise gift. If it prevents someone’s house from burning down someday they’ll be very grateful for your thoughtfulness.
Box of Crickets: Go to an exotic pet store and purchase some crickets. (They sell them to feed to large animals.) Wrap them up in a very, um “luring” way, but make sure the crickets do have some air to breathe. It will definitely be a very unique gift!
A Reindeer Outfit… For a Car: This one is just too cute you need to see it to believe it: http://www.prankplace.com/cargetups.htm. This would be perfect for a sorority Christmas party or just a party with people who like to dress up their cars.
Dental Floss: Did you know that flossing your teeth might increase your lifespan? This makes for a very necessary, but unusual gift. Get cinnamon flavored. If the suggested price for the game is higher, add mouthwash, toothbrush, toothpaste and sugar free chewing gum.
Duct Tape: Hey, everyone needs duct tape at one time or another. A roll of duct tape is a funny Christmas gift exchange gift.
$2.00 Bills: Ask at your bank for $2.00 bills, then get enough $2.00 bills to meet the suggested price for the gift. (For example, if the price is $10.00, get 5 $2.00 bills.) Then wrap up the money in a creative way. One idea is to wrap it around crayons. It might be the gift that everyone tries to steal!
Blown Up Plastic Glove with a Smiley Face: I got this once! It kind of made me mad, because I brought a nice gift. But it was funny – just purchase some plastic gloves – blow up one or two – and draw a smiley face on them. It is definitely amusing.
Bubble Wrap: This is perfect for a college Christmas party. It might come in handy for wrapping a fragile gift, or it was just appease someone who’s stressed or really bored!
Bird Seed Feeder: Wal-Mart sells Bird Seed Feeders shaped like a bell. It’s definitely a gag gift, but you’re helping bring some joy to some little birds.
Play-Doh: This one might be more popular than you think! If you want to splurge, purchase one of those play-doh kits. My little boy loves the “Doggy Doctor” one.
Jar of Pigs Feet: My husband brought this one time to gift exchange party and it brought lots of laughs. You can purchase it a Wal-Mart.
Assortment of Batteries: You know, it’s useful! This is especially a great idea if it will be a party where some of the guests are parents.
Pen that Shocks: I opened this as a gift last year at a Christmas gift exchange party. It was taken from me immediately, and then everyone fought for it. I know this one was purchased at Hastings. You might be able to find it at a gag gift store or online.
Box of Toilet Paper: You know, it’s very practical!
A Bunch of Hangers: This is one is so cheap and ridiculous but, maybe someone who needs more hangers will want to them!
Fly Swatter: Well if anyone steals this gift, you know what kind of household problems they have at their home.
Jar of Vitamins: You never know, you might lengthen the life of whoever receives this gift. For a fun twist, buy flintstone or gummy vitamins.
Sack of Peanuts with the note “Squirrel Food”: This works if you live in an area with a lot of squirrels.
Food Corn Removal Pads: This is definitely unique, strange, but unique! Who knows, maybe someone will need them!
Ovulation Test Strips: If you just happen to have some lying around, it makes for a funny gag Christmas gift. Or you could purchase one on your own at Wal-Mart. This is great for a couple’s Christmas party.
Hair Removal Wax Kit: This one will bring laughs, but for someone with bushy eyebrows, it could be very practical!
Happy Partying! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
