31 Dirty Santa Gift Ideas Everyone Will Fight For

Article by John Abrams. Last Updated: Friday, Nov 13, 2020.

Dirty Santa is a type of Christmas Gift Exchange where, unlike Secret Santa, you don’t buy for a specific person. Instead, you bring something you think anyone could love (or hate!), and let everyone fight over who gets what (according to the rules of course!). It’s very similar to a White Elephant Exchange or Yankee Swap! It can be hard to know what to bring for these types of parties, but don’t worry - we’ve got you covered!

We’ve rounded up dozens of Dirty Santa Gift Ideas that are sure to please! Funny, Unisex, and even a few practical items for you to choose from!
