NEWLY UPDATED FOR CHRISTMAS 2022!
Sometimes I feel like I’m all alone in the White Elephant Gift world. I mean, I LOVE the actual idea of a fun surprise gift trade (check out all of these fun ways to do a gift exchange!) but what I HATE about White Elephant Gift Exchanges/Yankee Swaps are the useless, garbage, crude, yucky gifts. I don’t want to be embarrassed opening a gift in front of other people and I don’t want a gift I just throw away when I get home (because…wasteful!) I’m sure there are more people like me….comment below so I know I’m not alone!
I made it my mission to come up with White Elephant Gifts Ideas $20 and under for 2022 that are a mix of sweet, funny, useful, creative and FUN! There is a big range of prices but all of these white elephant gift ideas $20 and under. If you like a particular gift but it is under your allotted range, consider adding a gift card (or cash!) for the remaining amount. You can’t go wrong! These white elephant gift ideas are perfect for anyone from co-workers, bosses, cousins, grandparents …really anyone!
