36 Of The Best White Elephant Gifts Under $20

These are so great you might be tempted to keep them all to yourself (and not regret it at all).

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A funny soy wax Harry Potter candle for The Office fans that'll reveal who the Muggles are and who the escaped Azkaban prisoners are in your team 👀.

2. A daily mood desk flip chart so your coworkers (aka your roommate and your dog) will see what kind of day you're having and know whether to leave you alone or join in on the fun.

3. A pack of The Mandalorian playing cards featuring everyone's fave, Baby Yoda, which will make every game even cuter and entertaining.

4. A pack of super artsy socks they'll enjoy Gogh-ing everywhere in.

5. A set of sweetgrass bath bombs to give them a luxurious and rejuvenating bath experience (which tbh everyone needs right about now). Olive oil and herbs moisturize, sweetgrass soothes, and Epsom salts loosen stiff joints. Skincare buffs will loooove.

6. A prim and proper mustached gentleman who will primly and properly hold their razor — no need to put it on the side of the tub anymore.

7. A funky set of colorful pencils so the writer in your team won't have any trouble figuring out the right collective noun for animals like giraffes and peacocks for their children's story.

8. A fuzzy sloth throw pillow that everyone will actually be pretty quick to grab and cuddle — just look at that face!

9. A mini heart-shaped waffle maker because everyone needs a breakfast made with care and love (and, you see, care and love just oozes from this little machine).

10. And this bottle of organic gingerbread maple syrup they can pour on those waffles for the most delicious and envy-worthy breakfast ever.

11. An art print the Oxford comma-defenders in your team will immediately grab, ready to argue their case because yes, this is a very grave issue, darn it!

12. A tub of pumpkin gooey butter cake ice cream for a yummy fall twist to everyone's fave dessert. Or get the miso maple flavor, which is a vegan option! The sweet tooths in your group will jump on this immediately.

13. A mini cactus humidifier that'll have your coworker prick up the moment they see it. They'll appreciate the cactus puns and hydrated skin this winter!

14. A Bob Ross Funko figure to remind everyone to ~chillax~ (even though they may not chillax once someone steals this).

15. A golden brownstone chocolate bar that's probably way too gorgeous to eat but that doesn't mean chocolate-lovers won't find their way to it anyway.

16. A boba tea light because there's always that one person looking for any excuse to treat themselves to bubble tea. Well, might as well get it in lamp form too. It's so realistic the boba moves around inside!

17. The most adorable Pokémon bubble tea-themed enamel pins ever to decorate their fave jacket and show off their Pokémon + boba love to the world. Watch everyone challenge each other to a Pokémon battle over these!

18. An adjustable neck phone mount so they can catch up on The Haunting of Bly Manor without having to worry about their phone falling flat on their face.

19. Fifty Shades of Chicken, a parody cookbook with hilariously seductive chicken recipes guaranteed to make them laugh — especially with names like "Dripping Thighs" and "Mustard-Spanked Chicken." So much better than their mom's basic cookbook, I daresay.

20. A secret journal much better than traditional ones because not only is this filled with prompts that help them reflect, explore, and question new things about themselves but when they're done, they can keep it, bury it for their grandkids to find, throw it in the trash, or, ya know. Burn it.

21. A visual grocery list they can stick on their fridge and simply circle whatever they're out of instead of writing it down somewhere random and losing it. In one glance, they can see what they need. It's great for people who are more visual. Economical, efficient, and fun!

22. A Nicolas Cage sequined throw pillow cover because it makes a perf gag gift they can cackle and chortle about.

23. A hilarious farting animals coloring book anyone with a sense of humor will ~clear the room~ for.

24. A Starbucks candle that'll have their home smelling like their fave coffee all the time. Caffeine-lovers will def fight over this one — especially with the cute recycled bottle!

25. Tequila Mockingbird, a funny cocktail book based on famous novels so they can indulge themselves with endless literary jokes, witty comments, and titles like The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose until they're just squealing with delight. While attempting to make said cocktails of course.

26. A set of cat butt magnets so claw-some and cute they should be illegal. You just might be tempted to take one.

27. This cute set of mini lipsticks too cute to deny! Heck, maybe they'll even be fought over.

30. A clip-on selfie ring light great for anyone looking to vamp up their selfie game. Sometimes your yellowish room light just ain't it.

31. A handy sticky note packet because really, these can come of use to anyone.

35. A fun animal-shaped tabletop vacuum that'll keep their desk clean and also function as decor when it's not on the job!
