Are you participating in a White Elephant Gift Exchange this year? This tradition, also known as a Yankee Swap, is a popular party game for many companies, families and friends around the holiday season. It’s an easy way for a large group of people to exchange gifts without everyone spending a lot of money. If you’re looking for the perfect White Elephant Gift Exchange this year, stick with some funny home decor from The Funny Sign.
For those unfamiliar with a White Elephant Gift Exchange, we’ll explain the basics of the game. Each person brings a wrapped gift to the exchange, usually valued at a predetermined amount of money. All of the gifts are placed in the “pot” or gift box, filled with available gifts. Before the game begins, you write numbers (one for each participant) on scrap pieces of paper. Allow each participant to choose a number, and that will be the order in which people can choose their gifts.
Once the game begins, the person who drew the number one will get to go first. They’ll choose a gift and open it. Then the person with the number 2 on their paper will go next. They have a choice to take their chances by choosing an unopened gift from the pile of available gifts, or they can steal the gift that was just opened. There are many variations on the rules from there. Your group of participants will have to decide how the game plays out, like how many times a gift can be “stolen.”
Traditionally, White Elephant Gift Exchanges are notorious for tacky, inexpensive and under-appreciated gifts. The spending limit for this type of exchange is usually very low, thus resulting in trinkets as gifts or previously owned items being wrapped and re-gifted.

We’ve all heard the old saying that laughter is the best medicine. But did you know it’s also the best way to decorate your home? Few things in life are more pleasant than sharing a joke and some laughs with your family and friends! Laughter is a great stress-reliever and can help people form emotional bonds with one another. The Funny Sign has plenty of funny home decorations to enhance your funny home décor – it’s not just a clever name!
Funny home décor can brighten up even the most somber of homes. When you add a funny sign or two (or three… or four…), the laughter you’ll hear when your guests see them will add an intangible design element to your home: one that you can’t buy no matter how much you spend.
The Funny Sign sells plenty of humorous signs that will help liven up your funny home décor. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Give this one to your closest friend to show him or her how you really feel about your friendship!
Hang this one up in your living room to show people you have a deep philosophical side.
This one is great for your kitchen. What makes it even funnier is that it is so very true!
This is an oldie but goodie. Hang this one up near your husband’s man cave, just to remind him who’s really in charge!
This one is good for the foyer: a friendly reminder to your guests to remove their shoes!
And if these don’t tickle your fancy, we have plenty of other funny signs to help you personalize your funny home décor to your unique style, taste and sense of humor.
