40 Best White Elephant Gifts Everyone Will Fight For 2019

The Best White Elephant Gift Ideas

If you've seen any of The Office Christmas episodes, you know how perilous a White Elephant gift exchange can be. (Seriously, people do not play around when there's an iPod on the line!)

So, when that White Elephant exchange invite hits your inbox—and you learn there's a high-stakes game of gift grabbing in store—you might start freaking out about the perfect gift to delight your friends, horrify your family, and prank your work colleagues.

(FYI: White Elephant—a.k.a. Yankee Swap, Pirate Party, Dirty Secret Santa, etc.—is a game where everyone brings a gift, and one person starts the game by picking a present at random. From there, everyone else has the option to steal any available gifts or pick a new one.

Cue the cheerful chaos.)

Instead of wasting your precious holiday-party-prep time scouring the internet for one-of-a-kind clever gifts or trying to avoid overeager salespeople in actual stores, you could (and tbh, should) just peep this list of the 40 best White Elephant gifts. They're funny, office-appropriate (when needed), and, most important, cheap. You can snag everything for $25 or less—and a bunch for under $10.

These gifts are not only fabulously outrageous, but also practically guaranteed to score you some smiles, whether you're at your office soireé or your BFF's ugly sweater party.

1. Grilled Cheese Toaster

Nostalgia + melted cheese + carbs = the perfect White Elephant present. That's just how the math works out, mkay?

2. 'Things I Want To Say At Work But Can't' Notebook

This gift is perfect for that coworker or friend who desperately needs to speak their ~truth~ but is also low-key terrified of HR—even if that coworker/friend is you. After all, everyone could use a healthy outlet for their aggro thoughts about Karen from accounting.

3. Retro Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster

It's a '50s-inspired hot dog toaster. Need I say more?

4. Hidden Alcohol Flasks

Make your bestie's next beach day instantly better with these three hidden alcohol flasks parading as sunscreen, tanning oil, and hair gel. (Brb, gotta grab one for myself…)

5. Mini Desktop Cornhole

Okay, so you're not supposed to play drinking games at work, but it's just nice to have the option, ya know? After all, an after-hours tournament totally counts as team bonding.

6. Mini Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker

What better way to show your friends, family, or work wife/hubby just how much you love them than with this mini heart-shaped waffle maker? It makes baby-sized waffles (cute!) in the shape of a heart (even cuter!), so consider this game of White Elephant won.

7. Pimple Popping Game

Got a coworker/friend who can't get enough of Dr. Pimple Popper? (Again, totally okay if that person is you.) Or got a work husband who's totally disgusted by the smallest zit? Either way, the look on their faces when they open this White Elephant gift is bound to be Instagram-worthy.

8. Poop Emoji Slippers

Finally, stepping in sh*t will make someone sigh with relief, rather than scream in horror. Best part? These won't ruin the lucky giftee's favorite pair of shoes.

9. Oh The Meetings You'll Go To! Book

A parody picture book from Dr. Suits (ha, get it?), this gift is basically guaranteed to make any office-dwelling adult bust a gut. Plus, it's a better response to those (less than) necessary evils than muttering “this could have been an email” under your breath for the millionth time.

10. White Elephant Mug

Sure, this gift might be a bit on the nose, er, truck, but you gotta admit it's super cute. Even better—it's practical and cheap (though it doesn't look it). Get ready for everyone to fight over this little guy.

11. Desktop Punching Bag

Remember that #iconic scene in The Office when Andy punches a hole in the wall? (Sorry, everything goes back to The Office…) If only he'd had this desktop punching bag to relieve his stress, things might've turned out differently. Fingers crossed your most frazzled coworker ends up with this gift when the game ends.

12. Awkward Turtle Card Game

Wanna make a whole room cringe? This purposefully awkward version of Taboo can help you do just that—no matter which friend/coworker gets stuck with it. I mean, just try describing the word moist without a shudder. Sorry, but it just can't be done!

13. Excuse Me Cartoon Book

With more than 500 cartoons from The New Yorker cartoonist Liana Fink, this book covers everything from love and dating to politics to even shyness and sadness. That means pretty much everyone (including that Angela-esque office mate) can find something ~relatable~ on its pages, making it an instant hit at a White Elephant party.

14. Holy Mother Forking Shirtballs Adult Coloring Book

Fans of The Good Place and adult coloring books a will go batshirt crazy over this forking cool coloring book. Just make sure no one acts a son of bench if the game gets heated.

15. Classy Sassy And A Bit Smart Assy Mug

This mug is so insanely tacky (I mean, that typewriter fonts they use for murders? Who thought that was a good idea?!), and thus the perfect White Elephant gift. Trust me on this—just think about Kevin from the marketing department unwrapping it…and then using it every d*mn day. Priceless.

16. 'The Only Gift Worth Giving' Wine Stoppers

Because a bottle of wine might be too on the nose (and frankly, a little boring), opt for this funny gift pack of five rubber wine-bottle toppers instead. The best part? Each comes with its own groan-worthy wine pun.

17. Moustache Ice Cube Tray Mold

Fact: You can never have enough mustache novelty items. You just can't. And, if you're lucky, the cocktail snob in the office will unwrap this White Elephant gift.

18. Someecards Uncensored Assorted Coasters

These aren't regular coasters; they're cool coasters. My personal fave: “I’d to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals.”

19. Triceratops Double Taco Holder

It's a triceratops! It's a taco holder! It's the White Elephant gift everyone will envy. Speaking of which…you should probably definitely snag one for yourself, too.

20. Crafting with Cat Hair Book

This book is a one-of-a-kind White Elephant gift that's perfect for the cat owner in your life. But it's even funnier if your dog-loving friend ends up opening it. This little gem teaches you “how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts,” tote bags and picture frames. And yes, you can really make these.

21. Bob Ross: A Happy Little Day-to-Day 2020 Calendar

Everyone could use a little Bob Ross to brighten up their day, especially if they're artsy or just into happy little clouds. Any fan of the painter will love checking this daily calendar that alternates between Bob's best quotes and his legendary landscapes.

22. Maybe Swearing Will Help: Adult Coloring Book

This gift puts the “adult” in “adult coloring book.” So, if you and your White Elephant counterparts don't need the PG version, bring this uncensored coloring book instead (or hey, why not both?). Pro tip: Add a pack of colored pencils so the White Elephant recipient can start rage-coloring immediately.

23. Craft Cooking Kits Ugly Sweater Sugar Cookie Kit

Finally! Instead of just wearing your grannie's most heinous Christmas sweater, you can give the gift of making one everyone will **actually** enjoy.

24. “Hellraiser” Ankle Socks

Whoever said socks don't make a great gift clearly never saw these babies. I mean, who can resist this hilarious, vintage-inspired pair with a ton of 'tude?

Whether the receiver is a fan of ninjas, gingerbread, or both, they'll have a hilarious time making these kickass cookies.

26. Sloths 2020 16-Month Wall Calendar

The person at the party who considers the sloth their spirit animal will do whatever it takes (but, , in a chill way) to end up with this White Elephant gift at the end of the night.

27. Caboodles Pink Vintage Case

Remember this little guy? Any '90s child will—and will legit flip over the chance to store her makeup in one of these Caboodle cases again.

28. Mini Panda Stapler

This cute-as-can-be stapler strikes the perfect balance between functional and funny—a winning combo for a White Elephant present. And, if nothing else, it's sure to start a conversation at any party.

29. Twig Marshmallow Skewer

For the resident s'mores aficionado. You're welcome.

30. Henry Googly Eye Planter

Fingers crossed this gift gets picked by your coworker who has a literal forest on their desk. Because, how cute are these little guys?

31. Squat N Go 7” Folding Squatting Stool

People swear these stools help them go number two more comfortably. But also…lol…poop.

32. Flapjacks Stylish Designer Laptop Keyboard Cover for Apple Magic Keyboard in Donut Pattern

C'mon, if this laptop keyboard cover wasn't made for a game of workplace White Elephant, I don't know what is. The lucky recipient can put it on their office computer ASAP…but you may get blamed for their constant doughnut cravings. (Oops?)

33. Weiner Dog Wine Corkscrew

Wine night is already fun, sure, but a dachshund-shaped corkscrew will take it to the next level. This downward-facing dog wine opener is the kitchen kitsch your friend never knew they desperately needed.

34. Dad Bod Fanny Pack

Fanny packs and dad bods are having a serious moment right now, so it only makes sense to combine them, right? Right?!

35. Potty Putter Toilet Time Golf Game

Whether the recipient plays mini golf or the full-size game, everyone could use some extra putting practice. And this, ahem, handy game is such a time-saver!

36. The Hungover Cookbook

Be a local superhero with this White Elephant gift that will definitely come to the rescue the morning after your holiday party.

37. Adulting Achievement Stickers

Adulting is hard, but congratulating yourself for doing the absolute bare minimum? That's pretty easy—and fun with these hilarious stickers. Case in point: “I wore a bra today.”

38. Dirty Word Search Book

For the Stanley Hudson in your life, this word search book contains more than 50 puzzles overflowing with naughtiness. It's, uh, definitely a change of pace from your office mate Karen's daily New York Times crossword (which is what makes it even funnier when she opens the gift wrap).

39. World's Okayest Employee

This mug tells it it is—no matter which one of your coworkers receives it. Just, uh, maybe don't tell them who this White Elephant gift came from…

40. Funny Kitchen Towel

Tacos make everything better, even kitchen towels. This one is sure to put a smile on everyone's face (and probably inspire a little food envy, too).
