Best thing I ever got from a white elephant was a Godzilla toy and a bottle of Jack Daniels.

Best thing I ever brought to a white elephant was that Sarah Palin book.

Last one I went to, I brought individual serving size bottles of wine (one half drunk...oops) and some really trashy romance novels. The most popular gift was a neck massager shaped like a frog.

I've only been to one White Elephant gift exchange, which was last Christmas. Everyone except one person brought legit gifts except for one guy who put in some kind of tennis trophy he won in the 80s. I thought he was being an asshole but then I read online that the game is usually with gag gifts? I don't know, but I got a really pretty mug.

If you want to put in a legit gift, mugs, coffee beans, a cheapy gift card, etc... I think they're supposed to be cheap but I guess that depends on the budget set.

In the one I host, the rule is you can't buy anything for the exchange. Everything is random stuff from the house, regifts, or something you've made. This year, the best gifts were a knitted Cthulu, a pair of matched rocket birdhouses (representing USA & USSR), a bag of soap, a bunch of NIB toys, some books, a box of food. Some of the weird gifts were an (unused, in package) vibrator, a shake weight, a Twilight movie board game.

I guess it depends on whether you want your gift to be stolen or mocked.
