First off, yes, a White Elephant party is the same thing as a Yankee Swap.  Oh, and it’s also the same thing as a Dirty Santa Party, but it’s not the same thing as a Dirty Sanchez.  More on that at another time.  Everyone typically plays by different rules, but the point is everyone draws numbers to see who goes first and that person picks a gift out of the pile from what everyone brought to the party.  You still with us?  Then the next person goes, picks a gift, and decides if they want to keep that gift or take from the person before them.   This goes on for multiple drinks, laughs, and even some tears until the last person picks the best gift of the night.  These gifts are usually supposed to be funny, quirky, and often cheap.  So we’ve rounded up some of the best White Elephant gifts (so far) this year that anyone in their right mind would want to pick last.  Happy holidays?
