Still searching for a white elephant or “Dirty Santa” Christmas gift? Want to bring a funny or hilarious gift for the office White Elephant gift exchange? Here are some additional excellent white elephant gag gifts.
Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader
I would not recommend giving this as a Christmas gift to your mother-in-law or child’s teacher, but it would be silly one for a white elephant gift exchange. There are several versions available. The book basically is a hodgepodge of little known facts and humor. It covers things form science and history to pop culture and unsolved mysteries. You can find this at a local bookstore such as Hastings, or you can order it online from eBay, Amazon.com, or another web site.
A Halloween Costume
Have a hideous Halloween costume you want to get rid? Well, free up the closet by wrapping it up as a white elephant gift! Sure it’s not practical and useful, but, hey it will bring alot of laughs. To make it a little more appealing, stick some candy in with it. It would be a bonus if you could fill it in a Halloween themed candy bag.
Magnetic Fridge Words (Magnetic Poetry)
This would be a top-notch gift for a Dirty Santa Christmas gift exchange that was mostly for college students. It’s not really a gag gift, but it’s not a super nice gift either. Visit http://www.magneticpoetry.com to learn more about it. You can buy it online or at some bookstores and novelty shops. Hey, it’s educational too!
Christmas Antenna Car Ball Topper
This one is sure to bring a laugh or two. If you visit http://www.cardecor.com (or just google “christmas car decorations”) you will find some funny Christmas themed ball toppers. There’s one decorated as Santa and other as a Snowman. It is definitely not a common Dirty Santa or White Elephant gift. I highly recommend this one.
Swirly Drinking Straw
You can find these at Wal-Mart and Target. A drinking straw that twisted is a cute White Elephant gift. Someone with kids might appreciate it. The downside is that these are hard to clean but that’s not your problem.
Christmas Themed Earrings
Some earring shaped like snowmen or candy canes would be an unusual white elephant gift as well. Even if a man opens it, he can give it to his daughter/wife, etc. You can buy these at craft stores or even at Wal-Mart.
A Board Game You’re Tired Of
Have a board game in your closet that you never plan to play again? Well, wrap it up and viola! – you’ve got a great white elephant gift. Someone else might appreciate your thoughtfulness. it’s actually a very practical gift.
A Dancing Santa
You can find these at several stores such as Dillard’s or online. It’s a musical dancing Santa that moves to the beat of the music. Hey, it will have a nice home on someone’s desk for the rest of the holidays!
A Used Candle
Have a candle that you’ve lit but don’t really care for anymore? It would be a great white elephant gift. This was one at a White Elephant gift exchange that I went to a few years ago, it was a hit. (Of course, my husband brought pig feet as his gift to the same party.)
This isn’t really a gag gift, but it’s cheap! You can get a giant container of it at Wal-Mart for less than five bucks.
