A white elephant gift exchange or Yankee swap is a party game where white elephant gifts are exchanged during festivities. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain. -Wikipeida

Whether it's your work holiday party, or gag gifts for your friends, at some point this season, you're going to need a white elephant gift. Apparently it's also known as a 'Yankee swap', which sounds a lot more hilarious, so let's stick with that phrase.

Keeping in mind that the point of the gift is to entertain, here are 5 ideas for your upcoming Yankee Swap.

    Anything that makes fun of the boss.

    If your boss has a good sense of humor, nothing will entertain your fellow party goers more than a fun loving dig at the boss. I picked up the "My Boss Is A Dick" pin at Rockin' Rudy's for 2 bucks. Could this cause you to find yourself in the unemployment line in 2018? Possibly.

    Majestic Unicorn Art

    Or maybe it's a howling wolf or some other random animal. You can typically find these classy prints at your local convenience store on the way to the party, I suggest Fast Trip on South Reserve.

    Stupid Hat

    Can be a trucker hat with a corny saying, a Santa hat, an old PBR cap, any kind of hat will do. Because if your party involves drinking, somebody WILL end up wearing it.

    It's not creative but it's welcome by most. And if it's consumed during the party, will eventually become entertaining via a "member that one time when" story.
