The elephant in the room.

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house,
Elf on the shelf has been flying to and from 'round the house.
The gifts have been wrapped with the utmost of care, 
Nine maids a milking 'til the in-laws are there.
One final weekend with friends for yuletide cheer, 
The perfect White Elephant gift? The search is here!

Everyone has someone in their family that is impossible to buy for, right? So in the search to find the "right" gift for that special/impossible someone, it is always fun to shop for a very wrong gift. Ah, the coveted best white elephant gift. Here's what I've found!

Hollywood Hotties:
I'll admit that the last five movies I've seen have been animated, so apparently I missed the boat on Nicolas Cage being a heart throb! Yes, this is an actual pillow case you can purchase on Amazon. And the best part is, there are several other Cage options!

Pola Roll
Doesn't everyone want to have a camera pointed at them when they're in the potty? Pola Roll to the rescue!

Source, $26

Face/Butt Towel
Although supposed to be silly, this gift actually may have some merit. I mean, when you think about it, it does make sense, right?!

Source, $19.99

Rotary Phone
Your kids may have no idea how to dial it, but a retro phone is always a hit.

Prank Gift Boxes
Prank Packs are actually ridiculous gift boxes to put other gifts inside. Perfect for a white elephant party. You can put something funny and ridiculous in them or maybe throw the crowd for a surprise and put a nice bottle of wine in them.

Sippy Wine Glass
Yeah, I'd fight for this. Genius and funny.

Bacon Rug
Everything's better with bacon. Except maybe home decor.

Ridiculous Coffee Table Book
A coffee table book of really funny (and real) photos. 

Ab Hancer
Any item that prints a testimonial "chicks dig it" right on the box has gotta be good.

Personalized T-Shirt
And of course, the personalized white elephant gift. I mean, who wouldn't want a t-shirt with YOU on it?!

Happy Shopping! {Erin}


  1. such a great post! Hilarious. especially the bacon rug and awkward family photo coffee table book:)

  2. Thanks Stephanie. If you google bacon gifts, it is surprising and maybe alarming how much "bacon" merchandise is actually out there! Erin

  3. LOL, I missed the boat on Nicolas Cage being hot too. Never thought he was.
    They are all funny! Why are there three guys stacked on top of each other in the family photo book? HAHA!
    Sippy wine glass is for me too.

    1. Thanks Julia. Yes, I'm rethinking the sippy wine glass as a prank- it seems downright practical! Have a great holiday!

  4. this was so funny! I especially loved the clever!
