EY Tax Guide 2017: The Perfect White Elephant Gift

If you work in a small office or are part of a large team that wishes only to celebrate amongst yourselves, chances are decent that you'll have a white elephant gift exchange this holiday season. If so, may I suggest that you forgo the Starbucks gift card because people can buy their own damn coffee.

No, you should mostly definitely make your white elephant gift the EY Tax Guide for 2017. Why? Well, maybe because you have no joy in your heart. Or maybe because you work with only auditors and you want to troll them. Or maybe because you want to gift something obvious but sort of ironic but sort of pointless because everyone in the office either already has CCH's Master Tax Guide and this is your PROTEST GIFT.

But then again, who knows, if you work with a bunch of tax nerds, this is like handing them pure bliss. The 3-steal rule will get maxed out in no time. Plus, it's $24.95 so no one is going to question the amount of money you spent. Seriously, if you have a better suggestion that isn't an Amazon gift card, then go ahead and try and top this idea.
