The Double Punch White Elephant Gift Exchange

This Elephant would chill with you and be your bud.

This Friday at our opening of FEELING BETTER ALREADY group art show at Double Punch, we will be getting into the Holiday spirit by doing a White Elephant gift exchange. If you are not familiar with what a White elephant gift exchange is, here is the brief run down:

The most popular version of the White Elephant…Rules allows any number of people to participate. However, the number of participants should be at least four for the game to be fun. Each participant is asked to bring a gift worth no more than a pre-agreed upon amount.

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.

Pretty easy. We’ve got a couple of house rules to keep things interesting. So bring a gift a wrapped gift, value of no more than $15 dollars to participate in this year’s White Elephant. It should be a lot of fun. This Friday’s opening of FEELING BETTER ALREADY is going to be great holiday treat for everyone and we hope it will top last year’s holiday group art show. Don’t forget to bring your Santa hat.
