YumSugar Gift Guide: Wacky White Elephant

A White Elephant is a type of gift exchange in which each guest is asked to bring an anonymous wrapped gift. Usually, there is a maximum amount of money that can be spent, and oftentimes the gifts are unpractical and eccentric. If you are attending a White Elephant party bring fun shaped ice cube trays. A set of Emeril's spices are hysterical and could provoke conversation about the future of Food Network. However, my favorite gift is this chicken kitchen timer. It's ten percent bizarre and 90 percent practical. I definitely wouldn't buy it for myself, but it would be fun to get at a White Elephant gift exchange.

my parents use to do this. we'd have the most horrible thing to give and everytime someone would be thrilled to take it home. and then we'd get something we thought was great. you know what they say "one mans trash is another mans treasurer". lol jen, "hysterical".
We call this Chinese Christmas.

BANANA GUARD. Maybe the one situation where it would be an acceptable gift? Haha.

These are pretty decent white elephant gifts. They need to be more tacky and useless - like the fridge. :-)

I love the veggie ornaments. My father likes to collect weird ornaments and stick them up on the tree. Those would go nicely with his fruit collection. ;)

I love the chicken!
These gifts are so cute, it would be hard to give them away. They don't seem like the typical white elephant gift to me.
