How to Play a White Elephant Gift Exchange

If you are not familiar with the holiday tradition of a white elephant gift exchange, fear not. The name “white elephant” refers to the types of gifts typically exchanged during the game – odd, funny, and maybe a little bit useless.

Just like a white elephant. Apparently, the name originated with an ancient king of Siam who used to bestow gifts of rare albino elephants upon noblemen who displeased him in order to burden them with the upkeep of such a large animal.

While modern white elephant gifts are never so ill-intentioned, they are often a bit bizarre and funny which is what makes the game so much fun.

Most white elephant exchanges happen at holiday parties, where each guest is instructed in advance to bring a wrapped gift of their choice.

The wrapping paper is key so that players cannot tell what each present is. All the gifts are put in one big pile and each player is assigned a number at random.

Players then select a present from the pile according to their number and unwrap it or they can choose to “steal” an unwrapped present from another player as their turn.

If a player has their present stolen, they can immediately select a new wrapped present from the pile or steal a different present than the one that was just taken from them.

This goes on until every player has one gift, but a present cannot be stolen more than once per turn. There are a couple of limiting rules that can keep the exchange from going on forever.

Most exchanges place a limit of three exchanges per turn, meaning that after three swaps the turn immediately moves on to the next number.

Additionally, it is common to limit the number of times one present can be “stolen” to three to keep the game from lasting forever.
