White Elephant Gift Exchange

The White Elephant Gift Exchange is a favorite game to play during the holiday season.  The White Elephant game is called many different names depending on what part of the country you are from … it is also known as Yankee Swap, Dirty Santa or Santa Exchange.

The White Elephant Gift Exchange has been added to the website along with complete rules, directions and ideas for variations.  See it here at http://www.birthdaypartyideas4kids.com/white-elephant-party-ideas.htm

The basic game rules are that everyone brings a wrapped unwanted or re-gifted item to the party.   The players take turns and gifts are chosen and swapped and exchanged several times.  There are many different rules that people play by and we have tried to cover them all at the website.

Do you use any different type of rules then what we have listed on the website?  Send us a comment or email and we will include them in the variations.

One thought on “White Elephant Gift Exchange

  1. I have been to a few white elephant parties and most of the time the gifts that were being stolen the most were anything out of the ordinary. Usually something you don’t see every day that is still somewhat useful. With a gift limit of only $10, I was amaze at all the weird and wacky things I could get while keeping my bank account happy. I found this online store while doing a Google search containing many things that are just perfect for a white elephant party. The link is below and hopefully this helps with your future white elephant gift parties!
