White Elephant Gift Exchange

We're going to have a White Elephant Gift Exchange at this year's lock-in! Here are the basic rules:



  • Everyone brings a wrapped gift to the Lock-In
    These gifts are usually funny, brought from home (think re-gifting!), or inexpensive (less than $10!) Wrap them up so no one can guess what kind of gift they're getting
  • We'll gather together and take turns picking gifts
    You'll get rid of one goofy present and end up with another!
