Gift Guide: Unique White Elephant Gifts That Don’t Suck


I used to hate white elephant gift exchanges, because I was under the impression that the only inexpensive gifts you could get that would be universally appealing were, well, terrible ones. But, thanks to the Internet and stores’ increasingly creative check-out line displays, my eyes have been opened to the endlessly creative and awesome products out there. Here, just a few white elephant gift ideas that unique and not at all lame, all under $25.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to


  2. Great! I saw there a desktop game “Spot it!”. I’m a desktop game fan, really. More interesting and funny games, loved by everyone – Carcassone, Activity, Bang, Dixit and many others. If you need advice on this topic, I’m ready to answer))
