15 White Elephant Gifts from Route One Apparel that Everyone Will Want to Steal

Ever had a white elephant party with your family or friends? If you haven't, it goes a little something like this: Everyone brings a wrapped gift (often a gag gift), and everyone draws a number. Whoever is #1 gets to unwrap the gift of their choice, and each player after them can choose to either unwrap a new gift or steal another player's. If your gift is stolen, you get to unwrap a new one. Many people add their own rules and twists, but the basics can be found here.

There's no feeling as great as bringing a gift to a white elephant party that everyone fights over! And we've got plenty of gifts that your guests will be stealing as many times as they can. Check them out:
