Along with the busiest, most chaotic, and most anticipated time of the year (say hello to the holidays!) comes a slew of gift-giving events that you need to be prepared for. Each year, white elephant gift swaps resurface in full force, making people wonder what kind of presents they should buy for the occasion. Because these Dirty Santa present exchanges are known to draw in a collection of quirky, creative, and sometimes off-the-wall gifts, finding the perfect item to bring is no small feat. And, while, yes, the present you pick should be fun and exciting, we also firmly believe that it should be affordable, too.
So, we did the leg work for you and tracked down the best white elephant gifts that won’t cost you a penny over $10. And, aside from these presents being extremely cost-efficient, they’re also just as funky and eccentric as these kinds of gifts should be. Whether you’re looking for something that’s outrageously random (think lightsaber chopsticks) or undeniably funny, you’ll find all that and more right here. Plus, we made sure these presents are practical, too, so anyone who gets one of these will use them long after the Christmas tree has come down. Ahead, check out the best white elephant gifts of the year.
