I usually just rummage around the house for these, but this year I'm hoping to be prepared. What's a great white elephant gift that you can get away with giving at work?

What's the maximum dollar amount?

I have to do this next week, with a $15 limit. I usually browse Trader Joe's or a Bed, Bath and Beyond type store looking for items on sale. However, the more time I spend looking for a gift, the more I resent the office holiday party.

The biggest hit with my co-workers tends to be either a microbrew (beer) sampler, or the gift basket with a modestly-priced bottle of wine.

I never end up with either of these - because my co-workers are all selfish bastards.

An iPod...

More seriously, I used a one month Netflix subscription once and that seemed to go over well.



You believe me, don't you?

I always get lottery tickets, usually the scratch-offs. People seem to love those and when they win $10,000, you can say it was from you.




CRZ had to edit my profile and close my table for me before, but I did this one all by myself with Frosty's help!

Do NOT get the "fake" winning tickets, unless you want to be forever known as the office douche.

As for another suggestion, gift cards for local restaurants are always welcomed. It lets us take a break from the cafeteria around here.

I thought White Elephant was supposed to be like a gag gift or something, but you all are suggesting genuinely nice things so I don't know if I'm wrong or you all are.

I reccomend the official Larry the Cable Guy "Git-R-Done" license plate: http://larrysfleamarket.com/Larry-The-Cable-Guy-GitRDone-License/M/B000CSALJ0.htm

We need that referral more than Larry does. ;-)

I would totally buy that license plate for Bullitt if he still lived here.

And by "buy it", I mean "sneak over and put it on his car in the middle of the night."

I actually have two of what we're calling a Thieving Secret Santa parties this year. For one I got the aforementioned foot bath and for the second a vibrating heated neck massager.
