The White Elephant gift exchange (also known as Yankee Swap) is a party game that is usually played around Christmas time. White Elephant refers to burdensome but extravagant gift that can’t easily be thrown away or disposed of.
The game works like this… Each person brings one gift. The gifts are all placed in a location where participants take turns selecting a gift. Each person can open a gift and have the chance to ‘keep’ the item or ‘steal’ someone elses item. The game is over when the last person goes and everyone is stuck with the gift that they have at this time.
White Elephant gift exchanges are more for fun then to actually give good gifts to people. Gifts are usually $20 or under but that is usually determined by the party creator. Here is a post for White Elephant Gift Ideas Under $20.
