White Elephant Gifts

Share
Winter Christmas season is coming, which means - you might be invited to a White Elephant party (aka Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa). And you may get confused as to what are White Elephant gifts and which ones should you choose. We've got a whole list of White Elephant gift ideas for you, from cheap and simple to more elaborate.
 
In case you don't know exactly what that is - don't worry, we'll explain before we get to the gift ideas list. Despite the way it sounds, it's not some kind of freemason gathering. It's a gift exchange party for a large group of people - the more, the more funnier - during which each participant of it brings a wrapped gift to add to the pool. After that, the players draw numbers to know in which order they will choose their gift from the pile. The one who drew #1 goes first, picking any gift from the center and opening it. The following players can choose to either steal a previous player’s gift or an unwrapped gift from the pool. If someone had their gift stolen, they can do the same – pick a new unwrapped gift or steal one from someone else. Stealing can only happen once per round, and one gift can not be stolen more than three times.
 
These are the overall general rules. There are variations to this game, lots of them, but the basic principles remain the same to make it work. So, it's not really about the expensive gifts - they are meant to be cheap and sometimes funny. We can also add a few more tips:
- A good idea would be to establish a set budget for the White Elephant gifts in the invitation so that everyone will be on the same page.
- The presents can be tricial and boring, but they have to be useful and definitely not low-quality, since that would be really disrespectful.
- Try to think about something different rather than just Christmas-themed stuff.
- Don't be shy to steal - that's part of the fun!
 
Now that you know for sure what will be going on, let's consider some White Elephant gift ideas. Are these for your friend group, college slassmates, or colleagues? How big of a budget do you want to spend? Do you want these to be gag gifts or something actually useful? In our list, we have White Elephant gifts for all of these cases and more!

Drinking Dinosaur Planters

  • Sick of your houseplants going extinct?
  • Each diminutive dino sips just the right amount of water drinks water
  • No over or under-watering!
  • Grow your own wild strawberry, sweet basil, or four-leaf clover
  • Made of ceramic so you can keep 'em as little pals after the plant has grown

If you're bored of watching the slow and steady mass-extinction of your houseplants, it's about time you got your hands on one of our Greenzaurus Drinking Dinosaur Planters.

These cute cretaceous companions require almost no effort to keep alive, just fill their little bowls with water and they'll casually slurp it up through their large, protruding tongues whenever they're thirsty. No over or under-watering!

Take your pick from three miniature dinosaurs, each with a different plant nestled upon their shoulders – wild strawberry, sweet basil, or four-leaf clover. When the plants eventually get too large and need re-potting you can either re-use your Greenzaurus with another herb or turn them into adorable ceramic ornaments.

Spin the dial on the left ball to find out how many pumps you’ve got until touchdown. Do the same with the dial on the right ball to find out where you have to aim it, then pump away!

It’s basically raunchy Buckaroo, but instead of having loads of annoying plastic accessories to pick up off the floor, you just have to get stuck into a packet of wet wipes.

While no alcohol is necessary to have a ton of cheeky fun with Jizz: The Game, you can quadruple the banter by turning it into a drinking game. Take a shot every time your slutty mate takes a load to the face. Hilarious!

Or switch up your substance of choice for even more wacky ejaculation! Pour in glittery gin for a bougie blowjob, orange squash for a kinky sprinkle, or add flour and egg for the ultimate bu-cakey experience.

It’s a bit naughty, but you can handle it. Cum on, don’t be a wanker, it’s only some jizz!
