Heading to a White Elephant party this year?
Prepare yourself for some good laughs with these crazy and practical white elephant gift ideas!
Our neighborhood rules include a 50/50 rule - half the gifts are gag and the other half are nice. I won't color your opinion on which type you'll find below. One man's trash is another man's treasure.
The Leg Lamp
A collection of lotion bottles, used or new...lotions and candles tend to multiply themselves in my cupboard. Share the scents.
DIY Swine Flu Vaccine Kit (1 rubber chicken + 1 pack tissues + 1 bottle hand sanitizer)
Pack of rechargeable batteries with a (Toy Not Included) note
A box of chocolates, all cut in half, or a bite taken, or donuts with a bite out each.. you get the idea.
Jaime's got a list that includes Bacon Soap for your favorite vegetarian.
Emergency Underpants (because they really do come in handy)
Recommended for You
A stack of your old CDs - I'd be willing to share Young MC and George Michael. Oh wait, those were on cassettes.
Jersey Shore Christmas Ornaments - Because some things really do become collectibles. Six seasons was just a few too many and the real Jersey shore has been remodeled thanks to Sandy. Oh, p.s. these are probably out of the $10 gift range now.
Sock Puppet Kit : A bag of unmatched gym socks + the extra button cards + instructions
A giant calculator
Old college text books - Tax Code c.1996 anyone?
Frame a picture of your favorite celebrity and autograph the front.
The best gifts are hiding in your house right now. Useful, practical, or a complete joke - up to you!
