White Elephant, also known as Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa, is a game played with gifts around the holidays. Unlike a lot of gifting, when selecting White Elephant gifts, you’re not thinking of what someone would most enjoy or get the most use out of… you’re going for shock value and humor!!! My family started doing a White Elephant exchange a while back, as buying a real gift for everyone would cost us all a loooooot of money. Plus, we’ve gotten pretty creative over the years with DIY gifts, some “borrowed” items from the diner my mom and her siblings worked at growing up, and other slightly PG13 gifts. It can be hard to find time to go scouting these weird and funny gifts, so I wanted to do a roundup of White Elephant gifts that are available online!!
