I love picking out gifts for friends and family – so holiday time is so much fun! Every year our friends either do a Friendsgiving or Friendsmas to celebrate the holidays. If we decide to go the Friendsmas route, we obviously have a hilarious white elephant gift exchange. Some are gross, funny, or actually nice and the exchange gets nasty! But mostly, the gifts are plain fun and silly (one year I gave a Nicholas Cage pillowcase and my hubby gave a Goats in Trees calendar coupled with some super gross whisky)! Regardless, I always have a great time looking for white elephant gifts and thought I would share some gift ideas.
Okay, let’s start with the random section first. We have a Spam look-a-like tin with “unicorn meat.” It has stuffed “dead” unicorn parts and is actually kind of cute. The next option is the classic yodeling pickle – always a funny/strange gift. This is followed by instant underpants where you only need to add water to access this essential item. Lastly, some banana hand milk (aka, lotion) in some amazing packaging.
Next up, we have the strange books section. This kicks off with How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack…because you know that will happen any day now. If that doesn’t float your boat, surely Cooking with Coolio or Dancing with Cats will entertain!
I find that the celebrity white elephant gifts are always a big hit. How can you go wrong with a David Hassellhoff prayer candle, a creepy Jeff Goldblum mug, or a Bob Ross bobble-head? As I mentioned above, I gave a sexy Nicholas Cage pillowcase and some gift stealing and squabbling ensued!
When in doubt, a funny calendar will please your recipient because even though you may choose a silly one, it’s still actually a practical gift. Favorites that I’ve found recently include the “Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit And Other Country Sayings Calendar” along with some hilarious wall calendars. “Nuns Having Fun,” “Pooping Pooches,” and “Nature’s D*ck Pics” all caused me to have a good snort. Also, last year my brother got me a “Hot Dudes Reading” calendar and it was super-hilarious. It never fails to get comments from visitors to our house!
So, there you have it. Some super-silly white elephant gift ideas for your next friend gift exchange. I hope you have as much fun looking at these as I did!
