Check out the email I received from reader, Amanda:

Hi Collin! Thanks for all the great deals you post. You sure don’t skip a beat!!! I have a question…. could you please ask your readers for great white elephant gift ideas. Our family is having a white elephant gift exchange this year and I would love a cool, creative, and hip gift idea. Our limit is $5. Thanks so much.

If you are not familiar with a White Elephant gift exchange, here’s the description from Wikipedia:

A white elephant gift exchange is a popular holiday party game found primarily in North America. Generally, white elephant parties need a minimum of six participants. With a larger group, game play may be more protracted. White elephant parties have been known to result in playful rivalries between players trying to get sought after gifts. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain.

So do you have any great gift ideas? Either funny ones (love those!) or gifts that you know others will want to steal. Please share with us in the comments below! Also, on a side note, our family is getting together this year and doing an ugly holiday sweater contest. I Can’t wait! And I may even post a picture here on Hip2Save. 😉

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.

When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!

If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.
