Dirty Santa Gifts, White Elephant or Yankee Swap – whatever you call it, this fun and festive Christmas gift exchange game is often played during the holiday season, especially at Christmas parties with family and friends and even with co-workers during the office holiday celebrations. If you don’t already know, the rules of the game ask each participant to wrap up a weird, funny, cool, interesting, or just plain bad gift (the contents should be a mystery to everyone else) and bring them with them. In addition to the fun of opening the mysterious gag gifts, the Dirty Santa game has an extra layer that includes opportunities to “steal” the best ones.

Before you dive into our list of the best Gift ideas for dirty Santa, read our brief explanation of the rules (although they may vary slightly depending on the group you’re playing with!). If you’ve never played it before, why not start a new tradition for 2022? Depending on who you’re involving, just make sure everyone knows your audience to ensure gifts are fun and appropriate for the entire crowd. Consider the age of the other participants and your relationship with them to make sure you don’t offend anyone or give someone anything you shouldn’t. You can also set a spending limit whether it’s gifts under $25, under $20, or $10 and under.

Essentially, you walk around the room opening, taking, and/or giving gifts. First, place all gifts in one area, e.g. B. on a table or under a Christmas tree. Have each participant draw a number, starting with one and ending with the number of players playing – the person who gets the number one chooses the first gift. You open it and show it to the group. Then the second person will do the same. However, they can either steal the gift that the person in front of them opened or choose a new mysterious gift to unwrap. If they steal the gift, the first person can choose another gift from the stack.

Keep repeating the process, but remember that if a person’s gift is stolen, they cannot steal it back. However, a gift can be stolen multiple times by different people. (Some people say there should be a maximum of three steals for an item, but it’s up to you and your party to decide). When all presents are unwrapped, the person who drew the first one can steal one last time if they wish. If they don’t want to steal, the game ends. If they choose to steal, the game continues until someone decides to keep their gift.
