Some White Elephant parties can be funny or silly, and you’d need to bring a hilarious white elephant gift. But this is the list for you if you want ideas for classy or tasteful white elephant gifts!
I’ve been to many white elephant parties through the years, and these are some of the most classy, nice, and useful white elephant gifts I’ve seen people fight repeatedly.
Because as you may know, some White Elephant parties can be funny or silly, and you’d need to bring a hilarious white elephant gift. But this is the list for you if you want ideas for classy or tasteful white elephant gifts!
Let’s be honest for a minute.
No one wants to be that person who, when someone opens up your gift that gives that happy little “oh neat!” face. Then they place the item clearly on their lap making sure everyone can see it so that, hopefully, one person will trade with them.
These are the gifts no one wants to go home with. Gifts that they feel “stuck” with.
No. We all want that amazing gift that everyone ooh’s and ahhh’s over. That everyone’s eyes get all big for.
That gift that everyone fights for.
These are so classy and tasteful that I would actually fight over them too.
