What is a white elephant gift?
The white elephant gift exchange is a popular Christmas party game. Played among family, friends and co-workers, it a fun alternative to the traditional secret Santa gift exchange in which participants are assigned a person to give to a gift to.
To play the white elephant gift game, each person brings a wrapped present to the festivities and draws a number. Whoever draws the number “1” chooses a gift to unwrap. The person who draws the number “2” can either choose a wrapped gift to open or take the unwrapped gift from the first person.
Should they take the unwrapped gift, that person gets to choose another present to unwrap. The person who draws number “3” can then choose to take any of the previously unwrapped gifts or a new gift from the pile, and so on. At the end of the game, everyone ends up with a gift they want.
