Tusk, Tusk

White elephant parties might not be as prevalent when the holidays coincide with a pandemic, but if you're lucky enough to be invited to one, you're going to want to be prepared. In addition to taking safety precautions, that means showing up with a gift that people will covet (translation: steal) for its usefulness, quirkiness, or unrivaled hilarity. Here are ideas that fall into all three categories.
