Whether you call it a White Elephant gift exchange, Dirty Santa, Yankee swap or Secret Santa gift party, you know it will be one of the highlights of your holiday season. It's important to be prepared with just the right gift and with limited time remaining before holiday shipping deadlines pass, it's a bit harder to snag that special something. But no need to fret, sit back and sip that eggnog, because we're here to help you track down the perfect gift and find something among all the epic holiday deals and steals. 

Whether you need to arrive with — or send — a fun gag gift for White Elephant or a universally loved present for your Secret Santa recipient, we've got you covered. Hoping to get a laugh out of your group? Bacon-scented air fresheners, tortilla-printed blankets, and raunchy card games are sure to do the trick. Stressed over a white elephant gift for a coworker you've only met via Zoom? Herb growing kits, an affordable iced coffee maker, or a wine subscription box are thoughtful crowd-pleasers.

We rounded up a bunch of white elephant gifts at great prices under $15, under $25, and under $50 that will arrive just in time for your holiday party. No matter who you're shopping for, you'll know you scored a great gift with these selections.
