You’ve been invited to a Christmas party where there will be a Dirty Santa gift exchange and you’re looking for the perfect gift. The MOST WANTED gift. The gift that is stolen so many times that it is frozen. After all, that’s what makes the Dirty Santa gift exchange so fun!
Although it’s name might suggest otherwise, the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange is a family friendly game! It is called dirty because game participants steal gifts from each other in the attempt to end up with the best possible gift.
Gifts for Dirty Santa are typically something fun, new, unique, and in good taste.
Unlike the White Elephant gift exchange, Dirty Santa gifts are usually items the recipients will want and use.
