Are your kids going to a gift exchange party this year? It can be so hard to help them find the right gift to take! Here are some Fun White Elephant Gift Ideas for Teens and Tweens that have been a hit with my kids.
My son goes to an annual White Elephant Gift Exchange with his youth group. These kids are all middle school and high school aged. The price range for this party is around ten dollars.
This year my daughter got invited to a White Elephant Party for a group of friends. These girls were around age ten. The gifts ranged from $15 to $20.
I asked them both to tell me the gifts that were the biggest hits! Hopefully this list is helpful for you. I know I’ll be glad to have this list to go back to next year.

This probably comes as no surprise if you have kids of your own! Kids would love any candy and this gift can be found anywhere for a variety of different price ranges. The boxes of chocolates seem to be a favorite! We love this cute Russell Stover Tin.
Hot Sauce Gift Set
My son actually picked out a Hot Sauce Gift Set for his item to take to the gift exchange. He said it was a very popular item!
Mini Waffle Maker
A couple of years ago the DASH Mini Waffle Maker was the item to bring! It is adorable and you can even find cute holiday versions of this product. If your budget allows, you can also include a waffle mix to go with it.
This is one I had not heard of before but apparently it is all the rage at White Elephant Parties! A burrito blanket is a fun blanket that looks just like a tortilla!
Plasma Ball Lamp
All kids think a Plasma Ball is super cool! I had forgotten all about these until my kids came home talking about them after their parties.
Hot Chocolate Bombs
Hot Chocolate Bombs were another big hit at the parties! You can find these made locally or this 4 Piece Set from Dunkin Donuts is nice.
Sloth Foot Massager
My daughter was actually obsessed with a Pug Foot Massager that got stolen from her at this party. Apparently it originally came from Walmart but we have not been able to locate it yet this year. I did find this super cute Sloth Foot Massager though that is very similar.
Fortune Telling Ball
A Fortune Telling Ball is another item that I was not familiar with. Apparently the kids love it and it falls into a great price range.
A party light is a fun gift for all ages! This is a great ten dollar gift idea for teens and tweens. It might even spark a dance party!
More White Elephant Gift Ideas
You may prefer to put together a gift basket for this event. I have a whole list of Dollar Tree Gift Basket ideas that would work for this. If the party has a lot of new drivers, a Car Wash Gift Bucket would be perfect.
