The Joy of Giving | For White Elephant Gifts


Some of the most fun holiday shopping to do are white elephant gifts.  But it can be a challenge to find something unique and fun without going overboard.  This guide features our top ideas that help you branch out with Christmas shopping for the white elephant gifts on your list while also supporting local & small business!

Death By Captions

A (very) inappropriate party game that could be the perfect addition for your *adults-only* holiday get-together!  Description on the box reads: "It's a visual and verbal card game that pairs priceless photos with devilish dialogue."  Let the laughs begin!

How to ******* Swear Around the World

100 cards to guide you through your travels with must-know words.  "Why be cultured when you can swear your (we're sure you can fill in the blank here) head off?  Keep yourself busy with 100 of the best, weirdest, and most wonderful rude words found from around the world."

"Drunkin' Grown Ups" glass

This fun drinking glass is a riff... or homage?... on one of America's most famous coffee and donut shops.  Though the idea is admittedly for a different drinking than the early morning caffeine requirements.  Happy drinking to the recipient of this gift; and remember: no working during drinking hours!!!

Own Your Own: Private Island/Jet

What to give someone a BIG gift?  Even with a tight budget, you can give someone their own private jet or private island with these humorous, and maybe just a bit sarcastic gifts.  It's the perfect gift that they surely don't already have!

Doggie Bath Bomb

If you don't know what else to get someone... get them something they can give their pet!  The Joy of Living has tons of other fun items for dogs & cats that are worth checking out!
