Gift Guide 2019: White Elephant

Another week, another gift guide! This one is very fun. Christmas time brings White Elephant exchanges at parties. So today, I’ve compiled a list of all my favorite White Elephant ideas for 2019. Stephen was a HUGE help with this one too. You can check out lots of his ideas for what to get the men in your life on my Gift Guide for Him.

Ok, let’s get right into it.

Nothing But Corgi Butts 2020 Calendar – Is there anything cuter than Corgi butts? I assure you, there isn’t. Why not celebrate 12 months of Corgi butt. This gift will have your friends laughing, but also saying a big fat “Awwwwww.”

2020 Bubble Wrap Calendar – Keeping in line with the calendar theme, this is a bubble wrap calendar. At the end of a stressful day, pop the bubble and move on with your life. Let that stress out!

Sushi Socks – This is so cute! It’s a little Bento box of cute socks!

Betty White Prayer Candle – I would feel safer having a prayer candle with Betty White’s face on it in my house. What about you?

World’s Smallest Vacuum – Clean up your desk, cube, or or keyboard with the world’s smallest vacuum.

LightSaber Chopstick – Baby Yoda has made Star Wars relevant again so these lightsaber chopsticks are a perfect timely gift this year.

Horse Head Mask – Because why not?

Frozen Margarita Glasses – These live in your freezer so they can keep your frozen margarita even chillier.

Drink Holder for you Sofa – If the sofa is doesn’t have a cup holder, this really comes in clutch. It fits over the arm rest and holds your drink in place.
