The worst is all these gimmick games like "Secret Santa" and "White Elephant". These are the fastest ways to crappy gifts because people always piss money away on "gag" gifts or other cheap items that are irrelevant.
I remember one time I had to buy some dumbass a plush giraffe because it was on their list. Who really needs that? Stuffed animals are for children and psychopaths. It's the reason why they are popular prizes at carnivals, because only creepy people that enjoy stuffed animals run carnivals.
White Elephants have their moments though. Primarily when I brought a hamster to one, because whoever opened it got stuck with the obligation of having to take care of it, because hamsters are shitty pets to raise. While it was all wrapped up on the table, everyone kept shaking it up in hopes of hearing the contents inside the box. I was told afterward to not bring any live presents anymore, so I brought a dead skunk the following year. Best day of my life.
