White elephant gift exchanges will make any Christmas party memorable as they are very fun to play. The white elephant gift exchange game goes under a few different names, including "Dirty Santa" or "Yankee Swap", but "White Elephant Gift Exchange" is the most common name.  The game got it's well known name because it used to be a great honor to give a white elephant as a present, but it was also quite a burden to get such a gift.

To play the game, everyone brings a wrapped gift within a certain dollar value set by the host.  The limits are usually $5 or $10 to ensure the guests don't feel pressured to by expensive items.  The gifts are supposed to be funny or a little crazy in nature, though you also want a few gifts to be items people want.  The white elephant gifts are passed around and players can steal other players gifts as they try to secure the "best" of the crazy white elephant gifts for themselves.  All this stealing of gifts makes for quite a fun and entertaining game as you can imagine.

Below I have listed some supplies that will help to ensure your white elephant gift exchange runs as  smoothly as possible and creates maximum fun and laughter for all involved.  Certain items are from merchants featuring sitewide sales right now.

Here are a few items that will help your white elephant gift exchange operate at its best and create the must joy and laughter, which is always the goal of the game, and the holiday season in general.
