White elephant gift suggestions?

I hate gift exchanges, but it's a fact of life. Any ideas for the white elephant exchange? I'm looking for something quirky, yet oddly cool or interesting somehow. Fast shipping window a plus. G-rated. Potty humor and political parodies are out.

EDIT: Oh, and cheap. Sub $15.

Go to Target or Amazon and buy a man's watch with a large face. I've done that twice now for Secret Santa (or Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa or whatever your area may call it), and both men and women kept swapping what they got to try to get the watch. One size fits all and most everyone can use another watch, even if they have much nicer watches it can be the "gardening and chores" watch.

Best tip I got is just get something you want and then try and get it during the exchange! Boring, sure. Succesful, maybe.

Most people use the white elephant as a chance to recycle an unwanted gift they have in the back corner of their closet. Not used, opened or garbage. But something that is just not to your taste. Save the $15 and recycle a gift.

Usb scale?

How about a rechargeable battery, the kind everyone seems to bed for a phone these days?

If not, then I recommend the Rotato.

I thought this bag of 200 balls would be funny- [www.amazon.com], turns out a mother in the group wanted just that for her kids! Also hid a SB gift card inside.

Some of the most popular and passed around gifts I have seen at these are bottles of booze. A nice bourbon seems to get passed around.

I have a work White Elephant exchange coming up. I'm thinking about doing a mortar and pestle with a small bottle of seeds for crushing. There's a stainless steel one on Amazon for $13.
