Left-Right Gift Exchange

Left-Right Gift Exchange

The white elephant gift exchange party has evolved over the years and one type of party that is a little different is the Left-Right Gift Exchange.  The left-right gift exchange game is played by reading a story that has the words “left” and “right” in it many times. Each person has the gift they brought to start the game.  As the word left or right is said in the story, every person passes the gift they are holding in the stated direction.  Once the story is completed, each person keeps the gift they are holding.

Some stories have been created for this game, such as the Left Right Night Before Christmas Game story.  A similar story is the White Elephant Gift Exchange Poem, which directs each person in how they are supposed to swap gifts.
