Having a holiday party that you want to dazzle your coworkers with the best gifts? We have a way to say thanks for your team’s hard work this past year. Here is our best gifts list for employees and ideas for White Elephant exchanges. I’m sure you will find something just perfect for the occasion.
1. Inappropriate Card Games
Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions, $19.99, Amazon.com
Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats. In this highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens. Exploding Kittens is the most-backed crowd funded project ever, the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world.
Drawing Without Dignity – An Adult Party Game of Uncensored Sketches, $25.00, Amazon.com

Roll the die, pick a card, and draw the clue. Join in the Orgy, beware the Cockblock, and leave your dignity behind.
