What is a Yankee Swap?

A Yankee Gift Swap is a type of gift exchange where participants give funny, useless, or strange presents to each other.  It is a very fun way to give presents to your friends or loved ones and is guaranteed to generate plenty of laughs.  Yankee Swaps have become very popular in the last few years within the United States, and there are now thousands of items perfect for Yankee Swaps.

Many families have started doing Yankee Swaps at Christmas because it is much more fun than giving each other traditional Christmas presents.  Most Yankee Swap gifts are cheap, which makes having a Yankee Swap a great idea for large families on a budget.

The traditional rules for a Yankee Swap gifts are as follows:

  • Each participant supplies one wrapped gift that is placed in a central location (under the Christmas tree for example)
  • Participants are randomly assigned a number, which indicates their gift-choosing order.  You can draw numbers from a hat.
  • The  person who picked number 1 goes first.  They choose a random present that is not their own and unwraps it.
  • On subsequent turns, participants have the option of unwrapping a gift or “stealing” a gift from another participant.  If a participant’s gift is stolen, they can unwrap another present or steal a gift from someone else.  Gifts can only be stolen three times.
  • The game is over when everyone has had one turn

Playful rivalries develop as participants steal the tackiest gifts from each other. Don’t be afraid of tweaking the rules if you have a better way of performing a Yankee Swap — it’s all about having fun!
