While figuring out gifts in general can be a challenge, one of the categories I struggle with the most is white elephant gifts. It’s hard to find something out-of-the-ordinary and maybe funny but also not too much money. And also appropriate. Doing a search for white elephant gift ideas can often bring up results that are PG-13 or R-rated.
So I’ve done some searching and put together a list of white elephant gift ideas for $20 or less that are fun and will be a hit at any gift exchange!
How fun is this desktop wacky waving inflatable guy? He can be yours for only $7.99.
It’s a little gross, but this nose pencil sharpener works, could come in handy and is sure to make everyone at the gift exchange giggle.
Maybe it’s because I’m a writer, but I don’t feel like you can ever really have enough notepads. I love the fun of this adulting notepad that also allows you to mark off important adult things you’ve done for the day like taking a vitamin or wearing pants.
And sometimes you just need a sticker for doing serious adult living.
If you’re going to have to cut things, you might as well do so with toucan scissors!
This adorable little Groot flower pot can be used for a plant or as a pencil holder or whatever else. It’s so stinking cute that it would be in demand at a white elephant gift exchange!
I am a sucker for a good punny joke, which means this book of dad jokes would be something I’d legitimately find amusing — and I’m guessing I’m not alone. It’d be a great white elephant gift!
This book of useless information that would be fun and interesting plus sure to spark some conversation!
Having a worst case scenario handbook sounds like a joke, but it could actually come in handy — maybe!
Sometimes you just have to have a good insult in Shakespearean style!
Novelty socks are always good for some laughs. I’ve seen socks that say “If you can read this, bring me…” But, I’ve not seen a pair that ended with “tacos” until now! There are other options, too, like coffee ($5.99), doughnuts (7.99) and bacon ($7.99).
You can’t beat these socks that look like you’re wearing sandals with socks!
Golden Girls socks?! I’m not sure these are white elephant because they are just pretty stinking awesome!
A tad bit pricier at $19.99, these set of sushi socks will be sure to have everyone talking at the white elephant gift exchange.
Fun home products
This bed-shaped sponge holder makes me grin every time I see it. It’s silly and fun!
For a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor, consider this cereal killer spoon.
Dishwasher magnets that tell you whether your dishes are clean or dirty can be fun like this one featuring different colors and Peanut characters.
I like tabletop vacuum. We have a plain one that we use all the time. But this cow tabletop vacuum cracks me up and would be great for a white elephant gift exchange.
Cactus-shaped tea light candles are pretty interesting and come in different styles to pick from.
Staying with the cactus theme, these cactus shaped dryer balls are a fun option. You can get one for $9.50 with Prime or two for $19 with free shipping.
Yep. Mugs are technically home products, but there are too many different funny ones that they needed their own category! Here are all of my favorites:
Misc. fun stuff
And then there were a few other finds that I had to include for white elephant gift ideas like this bacon flavored lip balm. I’m quite intrigued!
My son would totally love if I came home from a white elephant gift exchange with this Ninjabread cookie mix.
This basket head game could be the next family game or opened and played at your white elephant gift exchange party.
Even non-artistic folks (like me!) can handle paint by numbers, right? This adorable Bob Ross paint by number kit comes with everything needed to make tiny masterpieces.
