20 White Elephant Gifts For Under $20 (That You Can Easily Order On Amazon)

Mary Frances Knapp
·10 min read

Ah, White Elephant gift exchanges. They’re *chef's kiss* pique chaotic-neutral holiday activity. Not to mention, an excuse to step outside of the confines of regular gift-giving, and scratch your “As Seen on TV” itch. Because maybe you don't need a pillow that looks like a loaf of bread, but someone you know definitely does. That's why we've scouted 20 of the absolute best White Elephant gifts under-$20 on Amazon.

Shopping playfully and on a budget doesn't mean we can't shop mindfully, with Mother Nature in mind. (Peep the reusable beeswax wraps.) But unless you're an emotional magpie (hi! Same) with a closet of gimmicks to re-gift, you’re going to need a new arsenal of affordable grab bag treasures. Right this way for this year's bounty, which includes but is not limited to collapsable wine bags, vibrators, tie-dye kits, and a veritable pizza garden. Yum.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission
