Photos: Top ten White Elephant gifts of 2013

For each of the past three years, we've spotlighted the top ten White Elephant gifts as chosen by the folks at ARC Thrift Stores; click for picks from 2010, 2011 and 2012. This year, however, there's a twist: ARC has supplemented the choices with a video that should get you ready to shop for weird items that are as much fun to buy as they are to receive. Look below to count down the top ten, all of which are representative of the stuff you can find at your friendly neighborhood ARC. Each features ARC commentary you'll also see in the complete clip, shared here as well.
