Looking for the perfect silly gift for your office’s annual “white elephant” party? We’ve got you covered!
A “white elephant” gift is the concept of giving someone an off-beat and often useless present that will make everyone laugh when they see it. The object isn’t really to give someone an item they’ll cherish; rather it’s to give someone a gift that will make them ask, “What in the world am I going to do with this?”
