White Elephant Gift Guide

 

It’s that time of year again when it seems like each Friday and Saturday night, and maybe the occasional Tuesday, you have a holiday party. These may include, but are not limited to, work gatherings, Friends-mas, holiday book club parties, or heading to a neighbor’s home for the cul-de-sac holiday shindig. Everyone brings food to share, and everyone is also sure to steer clear of that fruit cake that “no one brought” yet still shows up.

Each year with my family, we participate in a White Elephant gift exchange. Depending on where you live or what rules you play by, a basic overview of a White Elephant gift exchange is as follows:

“Each person brings a small, wrapped gift, usually something useless you had lying around at home, or something tacky or jokey. All gifts are placed in a central area where all participants can see them. Then, everyone draws a number to decide the order in which they’ll select gifts. The lucky individual who draws number one chooses the first gift and opens it. Number Two can choose either to open another gift, or steal Number One’s gift. Number Three gets to open anew or steal from Two or One, and so forth. The game ends after the last gift is opened.”
(Rules found on Mentalfloss.com)

All groups may have different rules, names, and levels of intensity while playing. Over the years, my family has moved away from the useless nature of the gifts to ones that are worth a little more (some people call this version Yankee Swap). Each year has a theme and a price point. Last year, our theme was entertainment. People’s gifts ranged from movies to games and any variation of the two. If your theme this year is “Keeping Warm,” “The Necessities,” or even as specific as “Things for Your Feet,” socks are the perfect gift.  We’ve gathered a list of some funky, fun, and fashionable socks that would be great for any White Elephant or Yankee Swap party! As always, you can find our complete inventory on GoBros.com.
