15 Hilarious & Unexpected White Elephant Gifts

{Post contains affiliate links.}

Every year we host an epic Thrift Store Formal Christmas Party for some of our closest friends. Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds and I highly recommend doing one with your friends. Truly one of the highlights of my year, every year.

As a part of our party, we have a White Elephant gift exchange. After a few years, I have collected quite a catalog of impressively awesome ideas, that are far from expected. If you have a white elephant party on the horizon, check out this list of show stoppers. I think you’ll find something good. I only included things that have the potential to be fought over. Those are the winners in my book.

If you just want to shortcut to an Amazon list, here it is. Otherwise, keep scrolling for the magic.

Can you imagine all of the fun that could be had with this horrifying and hilarious mask?

This air gun is always a party hit. When Grandma gets hit with a big puff of air from across the room? Nothing better.

Maybe I just want my husband to get this one. It’s selfish. Selfish and funny.

Obviousy, this goat one is a great choice, but any marionette proves to be a good time.

Can you imagine all the people you could sneak up on with this mask? It will be fought over for sure.

Nothing like a candle at Christmas time. This one has a good chance of being stolen…..and maybe re-gifted, it’s that good.

This peel and stick decal is bound to get some good use. Can you imagine how awesome this would be left as a surprise in basically any bathroom?

Maybe throw in a bottle of food? Someone is about to get so lucky.

Because it’s Christmas time and it’s the right thing to do. Hey, Santa.

You can’t be everything for everyone, this should help.

Wouldn’t these beast legs look amazing with a dress? I mean, with anything really. I would be willing to bet these are a party hit.

Is this one crossing a line? I figured everyone could use a little more Jesus. Fingers crossed a teen ends up with this one for some moral support.

Fun for kids and adults, just hope Grandpa gets this lounger so you can see watch the fun that comes next.

Does making fun of The Donald ever get old? This button will be a huuuuge hit.

Pretty good. Everyone gets a kick out of a nose swap with these “pick your nose” cups.

Well there you have it. I gave it my best. Hopefully you can find something that will suit your party and add to the good times! Happy partying!
