The Dirty Santa, or White Elephant, gift exchange is the highlight of our annual family get-together. Everyone brings a wrapped gag gift to put under the tree.
After dinner, we all draw numbers to see who gets to determine the order we get to choose a gift, and then it’s game on! The next person in line can choose a gift from the pile or steal one that has already been unwrapped.
I’m always surprised at what people choose to keep and what they steal.
One relative’s tacky is another relative’s treasure.
With that in mind, I’m sharing a collection of White Elephant gift ideas from Cost Plus World Market for every crazy, quirky, offbeat person you know.
These white elephant gift ideas run the gamut from silly to somewhat practical, and all cost less than $20. They’re all inspired by people in my family.
For the Know-It-All, a Mrs. Always Right coffee mug. I would totally steal this!
For the Geek, a Star Wars Pez dispenser set. My son, Jackson, would be all over this, but he might have to fight his cousins for it.
For the Stinky Dad, Mr. and Mrs. Doo Toilet Bowl Freshener. Dad, we’ll find some way to rig the Dirty Santa game to make sure you wind up with this.
For the Crazy Cat Lady, a set of Crazy Cat Lady stoneware mugs. My coffee-loving, cat-farming in-laws would proudly claim these.
For the Goth Hipster, a Skull Funnyside Up Egg Mold. I’m pretty sure my cousin Jeremy has a tattoo that looks just like this!
For the Daredevil, the Book of Pleasure and Pain Hot Sauce Challenge. My cousin David has never met a hot pepper he doesn’t like, so I know he’s up to this challenge.
For the Conspiracy Theorist, the Magic Yeti Grower. Cousin Adam, I’ve seen your Facebook page. I know you believe! They’re real and they’re out there.
For the Practical Joker, the Box of Boogers theater candy. I can totally see my Mom and cousin Shanon fighting over this White Elephant gift and then leaving “boogers” everywhere.
For the Tipsy Uncle, the Happy Hour Giant Flask. Uncle Buddy, fill this with the good bourbon and save me a sip!
For the Aging Jock, the Basket Case Headband Hoop Game. Sometimes we forget my brother, Patrick, isn’t a kid anymore. With this, he can still shoot hoops without working up a sweat.
