A White Elephant Gift Exchange is a holiday family tradition. Here are a couple of funny easy DIY craft ideas that you can make for your next gift exchange.
My family is the best! Every year we get together before Christmas and have a BIG Family Home Evening with a White Elephant Gift Exchange.
Everyone brings food for a big pot luck.
There is a lesson about Christmas and reason for the season.
My very favorite part of the night is the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We do a nice one with the younger kids, which usually includes gifts from the dollar store so no one is too disappointed.
But then it is the adults turn, and we aren’t at all nice. We strive to find the stupidest, silliest gift we can find or make.
This year I was really very proud of my White Elephant gifts. I made 2, one for me and one for my husband.
For the first I got a tile at Home Depot for less than $1 and used my Silhouette and made this beautiful tile that anyone would be happy have in their home.
My 18 year old niece originally got it, but it was stolen a couple of times until in landed in the hands of the newlyweds who just happened to buy a house.
The other gift was probably my favorite but didn’t get opened until almost last.
At first it looks like a nice little angel ornament. After it was opened someone even commented that it was too nice of a gift for this exchange.
There was a poem inside that box that read.
I’m your little visiting angel, pretty as a swan.
I’ll decorate your tree or wreath from dusk until the dawn.
I know that every month you’ll think of me and put a smile on.
I’ll even be hanging around when you crave a box of bon-bons.
Now I guess you’ve figured out, and no you are not wrong…
Someone found another use for a Playtex Tampon.
We just have way too much fun together! Do you have a favorite DIY White Elephant gift you have received or made? Share and leave a comment below.
