Use the Yankee Swap app to enhance your holiday gift swap experience for Christmas, Hanukkah, etc!
In a Yankee Swap, or White Elephant gift exchange, all players bring one (anonymous) gift. Each player takes a turn and can either unwrap a gift or steal a gift from another player. The app randomizes player order and helps guide the game.
