We often wonder if the creator of white elephant gift giving intended for it to be the most stressful of gift buying. Whether the creators intended on it or not, we find ourselves getting all kinds of stressed out when it comes to buying a gift for this type of exchange regardless if it’s for co-workers, friends, or family because we want to gift something practical that anyone will enjoy getting, but of course, we want it to be a little off the wall too. We’ve created a list of our favorite white elephant gifts that fit the bill, consider it an early Christmas present from us to you. Let’s get started!
Bloody Mary Cocktail Branches
We all know that person that has to have a whole salad atop their bloody mary and we have the perfect gift for them! These stainless steel picks allow you to get wild and crazy with your garnishes, as you should. As we know the best part of a white elephant is that even if the original gift receiver doesn’t love this gift, someone that appreciates bloody mary’s can nab it from them. And hey, if a bloody mary isn’t their thing, maybe they’ll load these picks up with fruit to top off lemonade or a smoothie! Buy here.
Why Choose? 8-Flavor Chocolate Bar
This is a gift everyone can get behind, and frankly how chocolate should just be presented to us at all times. Each chocolate square is infused with a different flavor, and we highly recommend you savor each piece. There are three bar options: classic, winter, and spring resort; each one featuring flavors that capture the seasons such as shortbread cookie and hibiscus. Fingers crossed whoever gets this gift shares it with everyone else. Buy here.
Bubble Wrap Calendar
Everyone loves popping bubble wrap! And wouldn’t the world be a better place if we could pop a little bit every day? This poster-size calendar gives a person the ability to do just that making this the perfect white elephant gift. Buy here.
Glimmer of Hope Sparkle Maple Syrup
Have you ever sat down to enjoy your breakfast only to think, you know what’s missing? Glitter! No? Us either, but the creators of this maple syrup certainly saw a way to kick breakfast up a notch. Glitter-infused maple syrup may not be the most practical gift, but it’s an ideal gift for the person that has everything, and who can’t get behind sparkly pancakes? Buy here.
