7 white elephant gift ideas under $15 that literally everyone will love

Friends! ‘Tis the season of gift-giving, joyful advent calendars and, most importantly, chaotic gift-giving games. More likely than not, you’ve probably already been invited to join a white elephant gift exchange situation with your friends, family or at work. And it’s notoriously hard to shop for. I mean, you need to figure out a good gift that everybody involved would want to fight over.

A quick white elephant breakdown: Each person in a group brings a wrapped gift and puts it in a pile. Players then draw numbers to see which order they’ll each choose a gift. The first person chooses a gift, opens said gift and shows the group. The next person can either steal the gift or open a new one. If the first person’s gift is stolen by the second player, the first person can choose a new gift. This continues with the rest of the players until all gifts are opened. Then, the first person has one last chance to swap their gift.

TL; DR: It’s messy, fun and about the pride of being the best gift-giver. However, it’s not about spending a whole paycheck, which is why I hunted down a tight list of gifts that will make you the star of the game.
