White elephant gift ideas that are good, clean fun!
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 a great white elephant gift that is out-of-the-ordinary and maybe funny but also not too much money.
And also appropriate. Searches for funny white elephant gift ideas often bring up results that are PG-13 or R-rated.
So I did some searching and put together a list of the best white elephant gifts for $20 or less that are fun and will be a hit at any gift exchange!

You can’t beat these socks that look like you’re wearing sandals with socks! We all know someone for whom this would be the perfect gift.
Golden Girls socks?! I’m not sure these are white elephant because they are just pretty stinking awesome! Beyond being a good white elephant gift, these socks may just be the perfect present for someone on your shopping list!
