In the case of a White Elephant Gift Exchange, gifts are typically humorous ‘gag’ gifts or gifts that have been received but the recipient no longer has a use for. These $10 White Elephant gift exchange ideas will have recipients scratching their heads in bewilderment! That’s a GOOD thing!
Why is it called White Elephant?
White Elephant is defined as a possession that is useless or troublesome, especially one that is expensive to maintain or difficult to dispose of. Supposedly, the King of Siam gifted rare albino elephants to courtiers who had displeased him, that they might be ruined by the animals’ upkeep costs.
The term White Elephant refers to a gift whose maintenance costs exceed its usefulness.
