Josh and I are going to a Christmas party tonight and are taking white elephant gifts. We are supposed to find something around our house to re-gift or spend very little on buying a  gift. I have a few ideas, but I am open for suggestions!

Tell me the best white elephant gift you have ever given or received!

Have a great Friday!

do you have an old wedding gift that was gaudy that you didn't like? Those have always been the funniest gifts at our White Elephant exchange.

I went to a party the other night and someone re-gifted their beta fish! It was hilarious! (they put the press and seal wrap over the top of the fishbowl)

I got ten Starbucks giftcards and put 5 bucks on only one of them. Then whomever got it had to take all of them to see which one had money!

We played this last year with my family and my grandma wrapped up a picture of her cat in a frame!! Yes, I was the lucky one that got stuck with it. Have a good weekend

We just did one last night. Some of the best gifts were a magic 8 ball and a Snuggie!

We had some head rests from a car of ours that we no longer had, so we put the head rests in a bag. I heard of someone getting a mu-mu last week. I like the Starbucks idea though!

A couple of years ago, we got a ceremic "nose" that holds your eyeglasses when you are not wearing them. We re-gifted this year and it was hilarious! Also our church goes as a group to see the Frisco Roughriders (the double A team for the Texas Rangers)play each year. We always get a free cap. One couple re-gifted the free cap. I love white elephant gift exhanges! :)

This year, my husband and I got a picture frame. Normal enough, right? After the game finished, we were told to take the frame apart - hidden inside was a $25 gift certificate from restaurants.com to the Brau House in Hot Springs. Chris and I were so excited!
