White Elephant Gift Exchange: Solved

I’m a guy who brings a Nerf gun to a White Elephant gift exchange and walks home with a candle/potpourri bundle basket. It’s never failed.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy breathing inescapably thick plumes of Wild-Mountain-Berry-Solar-Eclipsed-Cinnamon-Mist just as much as the next guy. But would I rather be pelting the crap out of my kids with soft-tipped darts?

You freakin’ bet.

I want to play a super fun White Elephant game where everyone brings a gift, does the exchange, and then you get to leave WITH THE GIFT YOU BROUGHT!!!

Booyah! I fixed it.

    Agreed. I also think that there should be strict guidelines that everyone must bring a gift that they spent $x on and then bring gift receipts so if all else fails you can return the gift and get something better.

      Good call.

      We should form a White Elephant Standards committee and clean up this hot mess. Someone’s gotta do it.

    I unfortunately can not be the one who gives you your requested response for your goal sheet, mostly because “that there is just funny” yet I agree so true. I think each idea is exceptional and would put my name on the table as a part of that committee.

    or there could just be a standard of having everyone bring nerf guns for the presents.. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that… And if they did, those nerf guns could be very persuasive in changing their minds, if ya catch my drift
