Collection: White Elephant Gifts | Funny Gag Gifts and Office Gifts
We play this game over the holiday season, but does anyone know why we call it that? Its beginnings are said to have been in the Siamese kingdom (present-day Thailand), where the Siamese King allegedly gave actual white elephants as gifts to anyone who had angered him. The cost of maintaining these unique elephants was high. The white elephant was a revered emblem in Thai and Buddhist cultures, so you couldn't re-gift it or use it for work.
Whether you're participating in an actual White Elephant event, a light hearted Secret Santa, an office gift exchange, or just need a silly gift, we've got you covered.
