Last year I wrote a post that picked up some serious speed on Pinterest titled “White Elephant Gifts Worth Fighting For”. Many people must have liked the post because it got read and shared a ton but on the other hand there were gift exchange purists who gave me a hard time because the gifts weren’t all “gag” in nature. They were gifts you’d actually want to fight over at a gift swap. So for those of you who are interested in hilariously useless gifts for your swap this one is for you! Hope you find some ideas that you like!
Prank Gift Boxes:
If you haven’t seen these things before they are amazing. They are empty boxes so you can put whatever you want inside but the outside indicates that they are some RIDICULOUS product making the person think that the item on the outside is what is on the inside. The Dream Griddle got passed around a million times at a party we had 2 years ago and everyone kept talking about how they couldn’t believe someone would leave raw eggs out on the clock griddle all night while inside was 2 movie passes and microwave popcorn. These would be fun just for regular gifts too. Most of the boxes are right around $6 to $10.
These are some of the funniest mugs I’ve found on Amazon!

So there is a story behind this suggestion. Three years ago at an annual White Elephant party we go to, this bad boy got unwrapped. People were laughing til’ they cried and this sucker has come back every year since. It’s the one thing nobody wants and every year it gets a laugh…and a cry for whoever ends up with it. This is a winner!
