What is a White Elephant Gift Party?

White elephant parties have been known to result in playful rivalries between players trying to get sought-after items. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain.

Gifts are typically inexpensive, humorous items or used items from home. The term white elephant refers to a gift whose maintenance costs exceed its usefulness.

Each participant supplies one wrapped gift. The gifts are placed in a central location, and participants determine in what order they will take turns selecting them

White Elephant Rules:
We start out with a bowl full of numbers and randomly draw a number- that will determine the order of which we select gifts. The person who drew #1 opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person can open a new present or is allowed the option to “steal” another person’s unwrapped gift. When a person’s gift is stolen, that person can either choose another wrapped gift to open or can steal from another player. The game is over when the last person goes and the first person goes again.

It is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED not required that you participate in the white elephant gift exchange. IF YOU DO CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE bring one wrapped present and don’t put your name on it.
