Holiday Gift Game Ideas?

My family likes to shake it up a bit with gift giving for the holidays. We have been doing a white elephant, but would like to change it up a bit this year. Any ideas? Or any ideas on how we can change the white elephant enough to make it a little more interesting? There are roughly 9 people participating, so sometimes it feels like the white elephant is over a little too quickly.

  • We've done the name choosing out of a hat thing(sometimes the giver is told, sometimes it was secret santa) and we've done the white elephant(our version is the gift can be 'stolen' up to 3 times, not sure if it's the same for everyone). Oh we also did no gifts over $10, it's interesting what people get for $10 lol. There was also one year where everyone brought something that they found in their house that they didn't want anymore and thought it would be funny for someone else to open it ha ha. We have a huge extended family and it's fun. ;)
