WTF note pad: $5! Oh, it's about that season again — the time of year when we all awkwardly gather around with groups of people we may or may not know at all (randos at the office! second cousins and their new girlfriends at family gatherings! neighbors who just moved to the hood!) and give each other weird (but not so weird that they're offensive) gifts as part of a white elephant gift exchange. Today, I'mma wrangle up a brand new list full of brand new weird stuff you could bring to any white elephant gift exchange — so safe, that they'd even be safe for an office party.
