Coffee mug warmer
Especially for people who work in an office or at a desk, this coffee mug warmer could totally come in handy!
This is a more basic gift, but still extremely useful. You never know when you need a little bluetooth speaker!
This is one of the best white elephant gift ideas because it is perfect for literally any person. If they know how to cook already, this vegetable chopper makes the job so much easier! And if they don’t, the chopper will cut everything that they don’t know how to cut!
Ok so it may just be my crazy type-A personality speaking here but who wouldn’t love a good set of packing cubes as a gift?!
Whether they realize it that night or not, these are a super practical and handy gift to give. Whenever the recipient goes on their next vacation, they will for sure thank you for saving time packing and saving space in their suitcase.
These tile trackers are like AirTags, only cheaper! They are bluetooth trackers that you can attach to basically anything and track it’s location.
With these, you will never loose all of your essentials again!
A quality travel pillow is such a good gift for a white elephant party because practically anyone can use this.
Collapsible travel mug
This is definitely a more unique gift idea. These collapsible mugs can be stored super small and used anywhere whenever you need a quick drink.
Another fun white elephant gift idea is a disposable camera. This is such a cute way to capture memories! Plus, you can even open it up during your party to catch all the laughs and smiles as the group is opening all of the gifts.
Did not know this existed until today but this is seriously so smart. This couch coaster can grip the arm of almost any couch and become a cup holder! Gone are the days of having to get up and reach for the coffee table to grab your drink.
If you have tight space and no room for an end-table, this is the perfect solution.
Funny white elephant gifts
Practical gifts are great and all, but the funny white elephant gifts are usually the ones to steal the show at the gift exchange!
Have a great day mug
This mug is absolutely hilarious. On first glance, it is completely normal. However, once the person drinking it lifts it up, there is a special surprise that makes this such a cute and funny gift.
What do you meme?
If you’ve never heard of this game, What Do You Meme? is a card game that has different situations that you have to match to different memes. With a group of people, this game is sure to make you all laugh like crazy.
These coasters are literally the funniest thing! Not only will they have everyone laughing at the gift exchange, but all your guests will crack up every time they go to grab one of these for their drink.
Carpool karoke mike
This is another funny gift that could come in handy if you like singing in the car. For big group rides, this is sure to make for a hilarious car ride.
I feel like a description for this one isn’t even needed, so I’m not even gonna bother.
Go F*ck yourself coloring book
This coloring book is like a normal adult coloring book, but with a fun surprise on each page.
Although completely impractical, this is a super funny drinking helmet that makes the perfect funny white elephant gift. The recipient can even put it on that night once they get the gift!
LED toilet light
Another toilet related gift because let’s be honest, those are the funniest. This is a motion activated LED light that will turn your toilet all different colors at night.
This is such a fun drinking game to play with a group of people! All you do is play jenga like normal, but this time, the tiles have different dares that you have to do.
Inflatable tube guy
We’ve all seen an inflatable tube guy when driving. So, why not gift someone a mini version for their desk!
Not only are these super cute and funny pizza socks, but the presentation of this one is what makes the gift.
Mop shoe cover
These are mop covers that you can put on your shoes to clean the floor. Although they’ll probably never be used, they are a super funny gift!
Now this one is both funny and useful. I bet we can all think about a few people who could use a product like this.
Cards against humanity
Like What Do You Meme?, Cards Against Humanity is another group card game that will no doubt end with everyone on the floor laughing.
This might be one of my favorite gifts on this list. This restroom guestbook is a book for you to leave in the bathroom for guests to sign as the are in there. Not only are people going to have fun writing their messages and doodles on the pages, but reading this book at the end of the night would be hilarious.
Cheap white elephant gifts
If your white elephant gift exchange set a low price limit (or you’re just broke and don’t feel like spending money), here are a few practical and funny gifts that are mostly under $10.
Cute sticky notes
If you are looking for something cheap and useful, buy a pack or two of cute sticky notes.
Cip on selfie ring light
For anyone on social media a lot, this is the perfect gift for them. You just clip this onto your phone and you instantly have perfect lighting!
This is a hilarious and cheap gift that is sure to have the whole party laughing. This golf game is set up right in front of the toilet to play while you pee.
Another cheap and practical gift, everyone is going to be wanting to try out this head massager.
Neck phone holder
Although it’ll probably never be used, this is a funny gift for someone always on their phone.
Useful yet Useless white elephant gifts
When making this list of gifts, I had to add in a useful yet useless category. In other words, all these gifts could be useful in theory, but will most likely never be used. BUT, they are still funny, so they are cute gifts for a white elephant party.
breakfast sandwich maker
This is an all in one breakfast sandwich maker that will make you the perfect sandwich without all the dirty dishes.
Mini waffle maker
Another food related gift, this mini waffle maker is such a cute gift idea! Plus, both of these past two ideas are perfect for people in small apartments or dorm rooms.
For this one, I was deciding between putting this in the practical category, but ended up putting it here. Although, depending on the person, this neck fan may be their new favorite gadget.
Light saber chopsticks
This gift definitely belongs in the useful yet useless category. If you’ve got a star wars lover, these light saber chopsticks are such a cute gift.
Indoor s’mores maker
Depending on the person, they may love this gift or just laugh at it. Either way, it’s a super cute, all-in-one s’mores maker that is perfect for people who don’t have access to outdoor space for a fire.
