My workplace is doing a White Elephant Christmas gift exchange

I'm not participating. 馃檮

Good for them for having money to spare for gifts for people they barely know though. 馃憣馃徎

We used to have those, and they were fun. Now we pool the money and use it to buy gifts for needy children.

I never participate in those things at work, grab bag, secret Santa etc... no need for adults to stress out about buying gifts for each other. I'm all for a holiday party, but leave the gift giving for the kids.

My job is also doing the same thing. I don't plan on participating. These days, everyone will give each other gift cards.
I do enjoy those silly things ...you don't have to spend alot ...I don't spend more than 10 dollars on that

It's like a $5 gift and you get one back too. Just find some trash you were going to throw out and don't be a misery guts.

@DearAmbellina2113 Usually gifts can only be traded 3 times so that stops the perpetual swapping for the best gifts.
What's a white elephant gift exchange, I never heard of it

@AthenaArena you buy a gift for someone and they have the option of either keeping it, or "trading" with someone else for a better gift. It's kind of mean if you ask me, because it usually ends up being ONE gift that is "better" than the others so that's the gift everyone is trying to trade for.
@DearAmbellina2113 oh my gosh yes, that is kind of mean
