25 Awesome White Elephant Gift Ideas for $25 or Less — 2018 Gift Guide

While some people prefer to shop with a specific loved one in mind, we really enjoy shopping for an unspecified person in a random group gathering. We get such a kick out of buying a silly gift and then watching people fight to steal (or get rid of!) said gift. Of course, we’re talking about the classic White Elephant swap — where everyone brings a present of a set dollar amount and people take turns either stealing an already opened gift or taking their chance with something from the unopened pile.

In our experience, groups can be super wacky, competitive, or overly serious with their swaps. No matter what kind of crowd you’re shopping for this year, we’ve got some suggestions.
