Last year for our couple’s Valentine’s Day party, my husband and I asked each couple to bring a white elephant gift. I always LOVE seeing the random items people come up with, and this gift exchange was no exception! The gift Rob and I brought was this a funny framed quote that my brother in law made up – he is definitely the clever one in the family! Take a look:

This creative white elephant gift idea was meant to be a total joke, but ended up being the hot item of the night! It was so popular, in fact, I have made several more since the party for friends who were there and wanted one for their own home.

I hesitated posting about this because you never know who is going to be offended or what idea will end up getting trashed on some random message board! But then I thought, “What the heck?!” We definitely had a good laugh, and hopefully (most of you) will too!
