    Schrottwichteln

    Context/ examples
    Eine Weihnachtsfeier ist ganz nett. Ich fände es auch gut, wenn wir nur zum Amüsieren das Schrottwichteln machen würden und von anderen Geschenken absehen.

    Schau mal unter "Suche in allen Foren" nach "Wichteln" - da gibt's bereits zahlreiche Fäden ;-)

    Die Verbindung mit "Schrott" mußt Du dann selbst basteln ;-)

    Is that the same as "Horrorwichteln", where you bring something you don't want from home? I have heard that called a white-elephant gift exchange - see definition two in the above link.

    girly-girl, I've heard of Schrottwichteln taking place with friends just after Christmas spent with the family, and then you bring one of your unwanted gifts along (knitted ill-fitting polyester jumper by auntie Mabel anyone?). So not necessarily just household items.
