OK, last gift guide, promise. (This one was too much fun.)
I went to my very first White Elephant party two Christmases ago. I had no idea what a White Elephant party even was, and when the hostess explained that everyone brings a (usually semi-weird or offbeat) wrapped gift to contribute to a common pool, and then you all take turns selecting (and stealing) each other’s gift, I was all “okayyyyy…I guess I’ll bring a…selfie stick?” <facepalm>
Do not bring a selfie stick. A selfie stick is the actual lamest thing that you can bring to a White Elephant party. The below ideas are better.
(Official White Elephant rules are here, if you’re throwing one or attending one and need a refresher.)
