“Are you able to publish a curated White Elephant reward listing?” requested a reader named Candace. We get this query all the time. “Now we have just a few of those events lined up this season, and I by no means know what to convey, particularly when the utmost is $25,” provides Amanda. Plus, says Erica, “is it purported to be humorous, sentimental, helpful or edible?”
Total, my guideline is that it may possibly fall into any class so long as it’s one thing folks will really WANT. I’m allergic to events with gag presents like pizza blankets or rest room timers. You will discover legitimately good presents for beneath $25!
So! We gathered a bunch of good suggestions from the Cup of Jo group (and please add your recs under)…
