When the holiday season rolls around, it’s easy to turn into a scrooge at the thought of overspending on presents. Even if you’re a girl on a collegiette budget, gift-giving doesn’t always have to be expensive! A white elephant exchange is like a regular holiday swap, but with a fun game and quirky, inexpensive gifts. People give gifts nobody really wants or needs—but that’s the fun of it! Check out some of the most hilarious and bizarre gift ideas for your friends’ white elephant exchange.
