at least once in our life, be it our beloved grandma’s handcrafted itchy sweatshirt (thanks, Grandma!
), a clothes drying rack
for your new flat (thanks, mom
…) or a Mexican Sombrero
from your aun’t trip to Cancun (Gracias, tio
All these sh**ty gifts have common characteristics: they are useless, often bulky, kitsch, cheesy and tacky, like the White Elephant Gifts.
So yeah, the saying says “It’s the thought that count!” or “Be happy with what you have!”.
But seriously, no, when you’re 21 years old you can’t be happy getting a set of saucepans.
So this time, you are going to hit back. Revenge is a dish best served cold, as they say.

To Whom, and on What occasion should you send a funny White Elephant gift?
Obviously, we think about Birthdays and Christmas for funny gifts. But it’s not very original. The worst gift you’ll ever get is the one you don’t expect!
And to whom should you send this prank gift? Well, there’s a wide range of choice: your immediate family (father, mother, brother or sister) and your friends will often be the most forgiving, while people you’re less acquainted with (like your boss & coworkers ) might be more than embarrassed.
