Delicious Gift Ideas for a White Elephant Party

Whether you call it a White Elephant party, a Dirty Santa gift exchange or some other name for this holiday gift swap, you know you have to bring your A game. The goal is to end up with the best gift of the bunch, but shopping within a budget can be challenging. Here’s a few of my picks, based on current seasonal sale items and food, of course.

$50 Limit: Dinner & a Movie. Amazon has Fire TV Sticks on sale for as little as $15 as part of their Black Friday sales. Pair this with a gift card to Homeslice Pizza, sit back and watch your gift be fought over by the eggnog-fueled masses.

$40 Limit: Deck the Halls & Pass the Snacks. I found the cutest food-related tree ornaments at Food 52, especially the grilled cheese half sandwich, but the stick of butter most definitely has a place on my tree. Since buying two will put you over the limit, consider gifting one with a Holiday Hot Cocoa Bar Kit, for that festive feeling.

$30 Limit: Happy Hour Happiness. Grab a sixer of your favorite craft beer and one of these delightful puffer jacket koozies like the ones sold by Uncommon Goods as Cold Beer Coats. They just make you smile.

$20 Limit: In the Mood for Noods. Wrap up this multi-pack of Nongshim Shin Black ramen noodles and a set of training chopsticks. You’ll get a few laughs but trust me, someone will want these noods that Bon Appetit has dubbed one of the best instant noodles.

What is your go to White Elephant gift?
