The holiday season is here. That means friends, family, and colleagues will be hosting Christmas parties featuring the infamous white elephant game. Finding the best white elephant gifts can sometimes be a struggle. Lucky for you, you stumbled upon this post and will now arrive with the best gift in tow.
What is a white elephant party?
If you’ve never heard of, or been to a white elephant party, it’s where every guest brings a wrapped gift. They are all placed in a pile and each person receives a number. Starting with the lowest number, each guest takes a turn picking a gift or they can steal a gift from someone else. This game is usually pretty hilarious and is a hit during the holidays.
This past weekend, I attended a white elephant gift exchange party, and there were definitely some gifts that were a hit. Many got stolen multiple times. Some of the gifts were practical and others were hilarious. Having a mix of the two makes white elephant parties that much more fun.
Not everyone wants a gag gift or likes to shop for gag gifts. And that’s perfectly fine. The practical gifts will be a hit as well.
Here are some white elephant gifts under $25 that any mom will love:
The Best White Elephant Gifts Under $25
My favorite place to find white elephant gifts is Amazon, Target, and various small shops. Some white elephant parties have rules, so be sure to check them before you start shopping.
You may be required to only bring new items or only choose items below a certain threshold. To provide a wide variety, I’ve included items that are all under $25. Most of them are on the lower end, but a few may be right at budget.
