Best White Elephant Gift Ideas 2015

Updated on January 19, 2015

Best Christmas White Elephant Gifts

Our neighborhood white elephant gift exchange is one of the best parties we hold every single year. It's a time to get together during Christmas and the holidays and have fun. Below I'll give you all the need-to-know information about hosting a white elephant part as well as a look at a few of the hottest white elephant gifts for 2014.

Party Ideas and Rules

From a live chicken to a shave with me barbie, I've received just about anything you can imagine as a white elephant gift, however; it's always a good idea to organize the chaos just a little bit. Here's a few rules and suggestions that you will help you hold a killer party.

Set a Price Point

Whether you tell everyone to bring a homemade gift or give them a price point of $20, $25, or even $50 make sure that your guests know what the expectations are before coming in. If you're inviting couples only, then you should consider having one of them bring a gag gift and the other bring something serious.

Invite the Right Crowd

This is a party for people who can take a joke. I've been to multiple white elephant parties where the gifts were a little crude (and funny) but someone still got offended. So let everyone know what is and isn't appropriate, for your crowd, and invite friends and family with similar personalities. 

Prepare Additional Activities

The gift exchange will probably last less than half an hour so be sure to have additional activities prepared. At our parties we play the game "Boxers or Briefs" each year. It's like the irreverent version of "Apples to Apples" and brings more laughs than just about anything else. "White Lies" is also a game that's been well received at our parties in the past.

Ugly Sweater Contest

If you're party is around the holidays, then this is a fun tradition for your yearly white elephant gift exchange. Have everyone wear the ugliest Christmas sweater that they can find. Last year, we even had a few couples that made their own.

Top 10 Best Christmas White Elephant Gift Ideas 2015

Yes, it does exactly what you think it does and maybe a little more. This paper spindle records your own message to greet your guests as they use your toilet paper. I keep thinking of that Seinfeld episode, "I don't have a square to spare".

Instant Excuse Ball

Sometimes we all get wrapped up in what we're doing and forget to take care of something that was probably more important (like family). It's in these moments the Instant Excuse Ball comes into play. It's in the style of a magic 8 ball.

Christmas Story Nightlight

If you don't know what it is, then don't get it. If you do, then you'll have to have it. Remember, "it's a major award". My neighbor and good friend puts one of these in his upstairs window every Christmas season. No joke.

Accoutrements Emergency Underpants

As you get older things change and it's important that you're prepared for anywhere that you go. Emergency underpants can be just that thing to give you your freedom again.

Maybe You Touched Your Genitals Hand Sanitizer

Hand this to your friend after they come out of the bathroom. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Christmas White Elephant Gifts 2015

Talking Naughty Farting Santa Doll

Apparently Santa has said forget it to all of the goody two-shoes and is ready to join me on the naughty list. This talking Santa doll says naughty things and has a bad case of flatulence.

Slingshot Flying Screaming Monkey Toy Flingshot

Flick it and it screams and makes funny noises. When it lands it makes a crashing noise. These are actually very fun and Playmaker Toys has a lot of versions of this super popular toy including pig, chicken, frog, and chicken.

Fanny Bank Funny Farting Coin Drop Bank

Yes, it does exactly what you think it does. Put the coin in and laugh.

Bacon Scented Car Air Freshener

Bacon is all the rage this year and now you don't have to go even a single day without its fabulous smell. Simply put this Bacon Air Freshener in your car. Side affects may include additional cravings for bacon and fast food.

Control Your Woman Remote Controller

He thinks he can control you and now he can pretend as well. A "Control Your Man" remote is also available.

Homemade White Elephant Gifts for Christmas

Shave With Me Barbie

There are definitely a lot of good gifts that you can buy, but some of the funniest I've seen were homemade. Here's a couple ideas. If you have more, then be sure to leave a comment at the end of this post to share with other readers.

Walmartian Calendar

You've probably seen all of the crazy pictures of what people wear to Wal-mart. Simply search "Walmartians" pictures on Google and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Print the pictures out, laminate them, and then bind it at the local copy center.

Shave With Me Barbie

My wife found one of these online a few years back and decided to make one for herself. Get an inexpensive Barbie, cut her hair, glue the excess hair to her legs and armpit, and then stuff the barbie back into the box with a razor.

How was your white elephant gift exchange this year? I want to hear all about it! Leave a comment below with how your party went as well as what gifts were given.

      people are getting more creative, how about an old Christmas card with family photos(pictures of strangers ) like that rare card you get some years and go I do not know these people who are they? Or the twelve socks that did not match all different sizes with a note maybe your dryer has the match. A very large can of Beans, old air freshened the kind you hang in a car attached with note for the love of your passengers. A box of broken candy canes.

      Last year at my husbands office party I took a "how to be a manly man" kit. A pack of fake mustaches, a few tall boys, I got a hat and ironed on letters so the hat said STUD, a grill brush kit and a few other dollar store trinkets like ropes and screwdrivers. His boss picked the gift and everyone laughed and laughed.

      @anonymous: Liberty-Blah, blah, blah. Go buy some guns before NATO takes over, grab your satellite dish so you can still get your FAUX news and stay uniformed. And most importantly, move into a cave so you can share your opinion with people that care. Merry Christmas!

      This year, I am wrapping a "Honey Boo Boo" do it yourself kit. In the box, I am including a tiara, tutu, a whoopee cushion, bottle of moonshine, and a recipe (with ingredients) to make "sketti" (spaghetti, ketchup, and a stick of butter)!

      Last year, someone brought a can of "Spotted Dick". It is in the Foreign Foods section of the grocery store. Apparently, it is some kind of raisin pudding that comes in a can. It really is called Spotted Dick and when someone gets that gift and it is unwrapped, you will laugh until you can't breathe!
