the main challenge of Given the nature of the game the white elephant is to gift something with universal appeal in that you don’t know who the gift recipient will be. And personally, when it comes to this type of organized gift exchange, the spirit of giving rarely compels. I have to go Beyond 20 or 30 smackarooneys. At the same time, I don’t want to come to the table with something sleazy or unattractive. So, how do you find a popular gift that isn’t boring, but isn’t expensive either?
I’ve rounded up the best white elephant gift ideas that are all under $30 (so long as you’re willing to get a little creative with it). Even if the end recipient isn’t thrilled with their reward, every idea here is good enough to be re-gifted. And isn’t the ability to give again a gift in itself?
