The Art of the White Elephant

It’s that time of year… You’ve been given a budget of $20-$30 to spend on a “white elephant gift”.

The panic runs through your veins. What the hell am I going to get? You ask yourself…

That’s where I come in.

Have no fear- these gift ideas are the perfect combination of “cute and clever” + budget friendly and the best part is, they aren’t completely useless gifts!

Date Night: Spaghetti noodles, marinara sauce, candles & cheap wine (add bubble bath if you’re feeling frisky)

TBT College Edition: Everclear, Sprite & solo cups (add some Gatorade and Advil for a fun touch)

I’m Feeling Lucky: Lottery Tickets, lots and lots of ’em

TBT Adolescent Edition: Toilet paper, plastic forks & shaving cream (because who doesn’t like an old fashion TeePee kit)

Winter Favorites- 21+ Edition: Box of hot chocolate, bag of marshmallows & Baileys (add some Hershey’s Kisses for some melt-in-your-mouth goodness)

Movie Night: Grab the first movie you find from the $5 bin at Wal Mart, a box of popcorn & a variety of candy (add a few 2 liters if you really want to give someone a sugar high)

Hangover Kit: Bottle of Advil, sunglasses, McDonald’s gift card & Gatorade
