Does anyone else feel like Christmas just comes sooner and sooner every year? The past two years, my friend group has participated in a white elephant gift exchange and it can be quite challenging to find a gift that everyone will be happy with under a $25 budget constraint. However, after some research I found some pretty good options for white elephant gifts that I wanted to share.
So if you are in need of a white elephant gift, I got you covered. Here are five white elephant gifts under $25:
I understand this looks a little weird; however, I bought one of these for a white elephant at work and it was the first item to go. With this tortilla blanket you can get cozy and look like a burrito at the same time. All white elephant parties are different, but if you know that your friends and family appreciate a good gag gift, the tortilla blanket is a solid choice.
Trunk of Drunk combines eight popular drinking games in one box including: King’s Cup, Never Have I Ever, Ring of Fire, and more. The box contains all the supplies you need, minus the booze, to have a fun night with your best friends. The board game enthusiasts in your group will definitely enjoy this gift.
Not all white elephant gifts are created equal and sometimes I would rather buy a gift my friends will actually use rather than buying a gag gift to get a quick laugh. I actually have a diffuser and love it because you can customize the essential oils and use it for some mood lighting. Find some essential oils to pair with this diffuser and call it a day.
Every basic girl may have one of these already, but if not a light box could be a good option for white elephant. I like this one in particular because it includes letters, symbols, and even emojis to make fun messages. A light box is extremely customizable and anyone can use it. You can even leave a fun message for your friend who ends up with the gift.
I may be the only one that loves a good cookbook, but Tasty has some really awesome recipes. My friend group gets together once a week if we have the time which means we are always cooking food for a crowd. Whether you are cooking for yourself or a crowd, a cookbook provides a lot of opportunities to try new dishes. The Tasty Ultimate cookbook along with some utensils will be the perfect gift for the cook in your group.
