WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE DETAILS
The best part about this Christmas gift auction game is you don’t know what you’re going to get!
Since each gift is wrapped, you use your Christmas auction money to buy a gift. You don’t know if it’s awesome or lame.
I paid big money for a roll of toilet paper, while others ended up with gift cards and other awesome prizes.
Here’s what you need for the family auction gift exchange:
- Gift bags and wrapping paper- no perfect wrapping required!
- A fun group of party guests

CHRISTMAS GIFT AUCTION GAME RULES
Tip: Give a dollar amount limit so that all gifts will be fairly equal.
6. For extra fun, the hosts should put together one “Grand Prize” for the end. This grand prize can be awesome or not… the person with the most cash at the end automatically wins the Grand Prize.
I’ve designed 2 versions of Cash: Christmas Cash or Holiday Cash, depending on what you prefer! Use it for this holiday auction party or job charts, good behavior rewards, or Christmas stores in your classroom.
For just a few dollars, you’re on your way to a fun and simple Christmas party game!
