Gifts to Bring to a White Elephant Party

There are generally two criteria for gifts at a White Elephant/Yankee Swap party: they've gotta be cheap, and they've gotta be hilariously bad. After all, what's the point if you can't stick someone with a total garbage gift?

128MB Thumb Drives: They'll be able to fill them up with almost enough data to make them useful, but not quite. That's what makes this gift extra sadistic. It's full of potential, but still just not quite useful. $10 [Amazon]

Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive: You should be able to find these for around $20 on eBay. And hell, maybe even cheaper if it doesn't work. Whether or not it works doesn't matter, as there's no way anyone would actually use one of these embarrassing mistakes of a product.

A little harsh on the HD DVD player, don't you think? I have two of them and I still use them regularly. I invested in both formats early on because it was the only way to get a decent selection of movies, and I usually went with HD DVD when possible because they usually had better features (and my PS3 wasn't compatible with my universal remote so it was just more annoying to use).

Besides, it serves as my de-facto DVD player so I don't wear out the built-in drives on any of my game systems.
