Default $50 gift ideas

My family does a white elephant exchange for Xmas. The only stipulation are: no kitchen items, something fun or useful, and each person spend $50

Please help brainstorm, I'm looking for some ideas: random ideas, good ideas, weird ideas

A nice Crown Royal box set always goes over well at our white elephant exchange.

That's a good idea. I haven't gone the liquor route yet. Maybe see what 50 can get me in tequila or a wine as well.

A Squatty Potty is the best white elephant gift I have ever seen.

A live Guinea Hen. May end up costing more than $50 though.

A game camera on sale. You can thank me later. I always bring something I want that no one else will want. Then at the end of the night- I go home with it.

I think everyone has a hard time coming up with ideas. That's why these parties are filled with just gift sets of liquor.. boring

For $50 I'd buy a kershaw leek

I agree, if it's liquor every year, it gets boring. A Kershaw or a knife in general is a good idea as well. Knives and lights, can you have too many?

I've gone to the dollar store and bought a cheap picture frame with an ugly picture in it and hidden something nice inside it for white elephant gifts. It NEVER gets stolen and when the gift exchange is over ask if they looked inside it. Old silver dollars never disappoint.

We do the same kind of thing. My cousin and i are the biggest hunters so we always get something for each other. A couple things we’ve done over the years:
GOOD hunting socks
Lots of ammo
Hunting stool/chair from BPS (I bought him on last year and used it when I went out to his lease with him and liked it, now he’s buying me one this year)
Whiskey (always a go to)
Knives
Truck stuff
