These pick your nose cups!  They are pretty realistic.  When sippers tip their heads to take a drink, it appears they’ve grown a different nose and sometimes even a mustache.

How to host a white elephant party

If you are the one hosting a white elephant party here are some important and easy tips to help make it successful!
1. Set up simple rules.  Are gifts meant to used only.  Funny gifts?  A little of both?   Do you need to set a price limit. Be clear with what is expected with gifts.  Not everyone knows.
2. Let everyone know to wrap and keep their gifts secret.  Gifts can be labeled for gender if needed.

3. The Game!

How to exchange the gifts…

Write out numbers on  paper. Make numbers for however many people are participating in the gift exchange. For example, if there are 15 people participating, write out the numbers 1 through 15 on small pieces of paper, fold them once or twice, and throw them into a small bowl or bag.   Have everyone draw a number. The number will signify the order in which they choose a gift.

Begin with the person who draws #1. The first person chooses any wrapped gift in the gift box and opens it. The turn ends.  The next person can choose to steal the previously opened gift or choose an opened gift from the pile.  A person who has his/her gift stolen from them gets to either steal a gift from someone else or choose a replacement gift from the pile. You cannot immediately steal back a gift that was stolen from you.  You must wait at least one round before stealing back a gift that was once in your possession. A gift cannot be stolen more than once in a turn.    Repeat in order number. The person with the next highest number again either chooses from the pile or can steal a gift from someone else that has not been stolen that round.
