The Ultimate White Elephant Gift Guide
Updated: Sep 21
'Tis the season of holiday parties and gift-giving! White Elephant is a great holiday activity as it allows everyone to be savvy on the gift they have to bring and instills some friendly competition. Originally, it's designed to give silly, prank gifts but we've noticed a change in the game. Most people are giving actual items and swapping amongst each other for the best item. Both versions are great, however, we decided to go the practical route. We've picked several items that are fan favorites and can be used every day. Another bonus? Everything is roughly $30 or less because finding the best gift doesn't have to hurt your wallet! If you've been invited to participate in White Elephant this season, look no further. We've got you covered!
Google Home Mini
Can you believe the Google Home Mini only retails for $30? Nowadays, anyone can benefit from a smart speaker! We love that you can control it through voice command, connect your Spotify, and have Google Assistant right in the palm of your hand.
Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser
Up your self-care routine with an aromatherapy oil diffuser. It's perfect for those with allergies because it helps purify the air. Depending on the oil you use, it can also be great for de-stressing and winding down for the day. We really loved this one, not only because of its sleek design, but also because it comes with changing LED lights and automatically shuts off. Did we mention it's under $20? This one is definitely a gift that will be fought over!
Weighted Throw Blanket
Weighed blankets are meant to reduce stress and allow for better sleep. For better sleep, it's best to find a blanket that's appropriate for your body weight. We love the idea of cuddling up on the couch with a weighted throw blanket and a hot cup of cocoa while binging on Disney+. Most weighted blankets are expensive but this one only retails for $30! It's the perfect addition to a cozy night in.
We love a pamper day! Anyone and everyone is entitled to self-love and self-care. This mask set is a great steal! Dr. Jart+ is known for their amazing masks and one mask itself values around $6-$9 alone. This kit comes with seven that targets certain skin needs. This is perfect for those venturing out to a better skincare routine or in need of a new face mask. We personally love that they all have different solutions for any skin concern one may have. It's such a must-have item that we might have to grab our own!
Coffee Blend with a Cause
Since many of us are coffee lovers, we can appreciate a trio of this organic coffee set. It has a variety of roasts that will ensure that anyone will get one that they enjoy. The best part of purchasing Ground & Hounds coffee? 20% of proceeds are donated to animal rescue partners around the country. The holiday season is all about spreading cheer and kindness therefore we are stoked to find a gift that donates to a great cause.
We love the season of giving and these gifts will surely be loved! At the end of the day, whatever gift you decide to purchase, it's the thought of giving to others is what truly matters. Happy holidays and happy shopping!
