White Elephant Christmas Gift Ideas

December 1, 2011

Two men and two women laughing and shaking presents by a Christmas tree.Our extended family started to give "White Elephant Gifts" (gag gifts) at Christmas. We are all big Bears football fans so one year we wrapped up a Green Bay t-shirt (big rival). It was a big hit and truly a White Elephant. I know it is not about money but cleverness and we do not have the money to spend, but I still need a White Elephant gift and I am coming up dry.


Any ideas?

Dollar store teddy bears? Or the dollar aisle at Target or WalMart. Look at yard sales for anything bear-ish - cookie jar, coffee mug, stuffed animals, etc.

I'm thinking a big piece of cheese wrapped real well (Green Bay's specialty!), or make a hat in a cheese-slice style. Google Green Bay's website to get some ideas.

OR, you can make all sorts of things with bear motiffs: ornament covered with bear pictures, a "letter to Santa" asking for a Super Bowl for the Bears this year (include players' names, stats, etc.), inexpensive mugs filled with chocolate bears, candy bars wrapped with paper covered with football/Bears sayings - have the wrapping say (unwrap in "emergency" only - if Bears are behind!), etc.


Have fun!

This is a page about "What is a white elephant gift exchange?". This fun, popular gift exchange is somewhat of a party game.
