White elephant gifts for the Cinco de Mayo party
Tomorrow is the Cinco de Mayo party day – millions will spend the day in celebration and sharing gifts among themselves. And though there are no white elephants in Mexico, there is a great opportunity to use a white elephant gift exchange to make the party more engaging.
A Cinco de Mayo white elephant gift party would be a perfect way to share the day with a group of friends or family.
You can decorate with a Mexican theme, prepare food and refreshments that are fitting for the day, and then have a great gift exchange game. Add in some great Mexican music in the background and have everyone come wearing some type of Mexican dress, like a sombrero or a poncho. You could even have TacoBell cater the event!
Mexican White Elephant Gifts
The white elephant gift exchange is a gift sharing event, so on Cinco de Mayo the gifts should be Mexican centered. Tell every invitee that they need to bring creative and fun Mexican-styled white elephant gifts. Because it is the fifth of May there could be a requirement that gifts have a tie to the number five, like $15, $25 or $35 dollar maximum spend. Here are a few gift ideas to get your creative juices flowing….
- Habenero sause
- Mexican music CD’s
- Mini cactus
- Margarita Glasses
