What is White Elephant Gift-Giving during Christmas?
Each guest at the holiday party is required to bring one wrapped gift for the white elephant gift exchange. After everyone has gathered, each person draws a number. The person holding "one" gets to pick which gift to open. The holder of "two" has two options: They can select a brand-new, wrapped gift or take the unwrapped gift from the person holding "one."
Why is it called the White Elephant Game?
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.
