and my mom scored with this awesome NO button: (she paired it with a high heel tape dispenser!)

 

 

my sister scored big when she found a fanny pack (its’ a huge family joke…) she filled the fanny pack with all sorts of neccessities…like a nail kit. a granola bar, hand sanitizer…it was great!

she also gave a live fish and with a bag of chips (fish and chips!) my favorite memory is my mom opening the bag and shrieking that it is a live fish! white-elephant-gift-idea-fish-chips

***********************

NOW when you have your awesome white elephant gift (check out THIS pin to see how you should wrap it)

anyways..you got to have fun way to exchange the presents….we did this with the kids…

print these out…cut them out..

and then everyone gets to choose one…its a great way to spread them around….

there of course is the fun right and left story

 

or punch a present! punch a present

 

we also  (as adults) played a fun dice game. there were 12 of us…and we had three sets of dice going around. All the presents are in the middle. if you roll a double : you can grab a present from the middle. (only roll once and then pass) My mom and dad ended up with 3 gifts each.  then the ones that have presents open it. then you play another round and this time you steal the present you want! you can play until everyone gets a present..or play “jail rules”  and some people get multiples while some go home empty handed!

 

this is also a fun idea from brassy apple

lets make a deal

 

and this dice game would be a blast!
