As you may know, some White Elephant parties can be funny, silly and you can get really useless gifts. But other times, they are more classy and people bring nicer items that people will actually want! That is what this post is all about. The classy and useful white elephant gifts everyone will fight for.
Let’s be honest for a minute. No one wants to be that person who when someone opens up your gift, they give 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.
So, here is that list. I’ve been to many white elephant parties through the years and these are the ones I’ve actually seen people fight over again and again. And some are just really classy and nice items I would actually fight over. If you love these ideas you might also really love checking out these 25 Hilarious White Elephant Gift Ideas here.
