Back for its third year running B&B will be hosting a white elephant gift exchange! What is a white elephant?
Wiki tells us:
Gifts are typically inexpensive, humorous items, or used items from home; the term white elephant refers to a gift whose maintenance cost exceeds its usefulness.
Participants draw numbers from a hat to determine their gift choice order, starting with one, up to the total number of participants.
Each person takes a turn choosing a gift. The first person picks a gift, opens it and shows it to the rest of the company. Then the number two participant picks a gift and chooses to either unwrap it or to exchange it for the previously unwrapped gift. If the gift is exchanged, the person who had their gift taken from them gets to unwrap the chosen gift and then the turn passes. When all the gifts have been opened, the game is over.
Good rule of thumb is to bring a gift that you wouldn’t mind receiving yourself. A great chance to re-gift that item that you don’t need/want but is too useful to throw away.
We suggest you wear your best (or worst) holiday sweater/outfit to this event.
