We all have those gifts that we just don’t love from Aunt Thelma or that co-worker in the next cubicle. I know, you really want to dispose of that adorable chia pet or Christmas towel set, but you first must wait the appropriate, acceptable amount of time. UNLESS, you’re going to a re-gift party! But alas, since many of us have cleaned our homes, rid ourselves of the items that no longer bring us joy, and adopted the minimalist mindset (thanks to the Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up) we will have to actually SHOP for Dirty Santa gifts this year.

    Such a great post, Alicia! My husband’s family does white elephant every year for Christmas because the family is so big and we always struggle with what to get!

      Thanks! We do it each year, too, and it’s a blast! My adult sons have the Best fun wrapping tiny random gifts in one box after another, adding bricks and weight, etc. We have so many laughs in the process. Great family fun!
