White Elephant gift exchanges are common this time of year, from office parties to family and friends gatherings. The term “white elephant” comes from a story that the kings of Siam would give a gift of a white elephant to those that they deemed to be “obnoxious”, which in turn would ruin the recipient by the cost of the maintenance of the animal. Today, the term is used to mean an object or gift considered to be without value.
