Default Our best white elephant gift

That bourdeauxs butt paste in the baby section was such a hit. Everyone was laughing so hard.

Default White Elephant Gifts

We have the best Christmas party every year and these are some of the best gifts:

1. Take a picture of you and your husband, - close up, blow it up to a 8 x 10, frame it and sign it, "best wishes"

2. large underwear

3. Candy Bra - Spencer's in the Provo Town center has bra's that are like the candy necklaces - $9.99

4. Any old halloween mask - we had a Homer Simpson one

5. Enquirer magazines

6. Pigs feet in a jar - found at your local grocery store

Have fun!

For the more serious crowds....I like the silly crowd white elephants. I like to give away my free finds that are useful to others. Ex. J & J bar soaps for kids, free pantyhose, and batteries. The unexpected useful sometimes go over well. Have fun.

Get a box of Sees candy, open it and take a bit out of each one and rewrap it. Everyone fights to get it because it is and item that you can use. Just make sure that the person who ends up with it opens it all the way at the party.

Was it a bottle of root beer? i did this one year for a party with a note that said "Have a rootin' tootin' Christmas"

What about the slippers made out of Kotex pads? We had those at a party one year and it was hilarious! Make sure to include instructions and some extra pads!

My SIL and BIL bought a board game. They took the pieces out and wrapped them up for the first gift and then wrapped up the box as the second gift. When the first person opened up the box they were estatic, until someone opened up the games pieces. Pretty soon all the spouses were fighting to get the set
