We have to bring a White Elephant Gift to our staff Christmas party. Any suggestions on what to bring? They said it could be a funny or serious gift. I just don't know what I should bring!!!!

Vinegar, Foil, Cake Mix

I've seen those books in Dollar General that say like 1,000 Uses for Vinegar. You could buy a book like that with a jar of vinegar, or foil. Once I had a 5 gallon bucket book to take with a 5 gallon bucket. I never got invited to a white elephant gift exchange so I ended up throwing it out but it would've been cool.

Last year I received a talking flyswatter. We've had odd things that are quite popular like a snowcone maker. One year I got rid of some coasters I didn't use by putting photos of the school inside the glass insert.

I usually look in my basement or my kitchen cupboards for something I don't use anymore.

I usually just get all kinds of chocolate candy and put it in a pretty photo box or someother type of nice box.

I thought "white elephant" meant you find something in your house you don't want or use and maybe someone else might want it. I would not spend any money on a white elephant gift.

Our elementary does this. This year I took a lot of VHS tapes and will wrap them up. I will include a large chocolate bar. In the past I have wrapped up a bunch of paper back books.

One year I happened to snap a funny photo of the principal wearing a pink wig. I printed it out and put it in a frame. At least he thought it was funny.

My favorite white elephant

A small package of batteries with a note that says Toy not included.

Most people will actually put the batteries to use and it usually gets a chuckle.
