Last December, our friends at Arc Thrift Stores of Colorado shared their choices for the top White Elephant Christmas gifts of 2010 -- and they've wisely continued the tradition this year.

Page down to check out their must-have countdown picks for the season, featuring Arc's photos and captions.

10. President Note Card Holders: Now you can have a say in what comes out of the mouths of politicians 9. Christmas Records: All your not-so-favorite Christmas carols. 8. Butterfly Clock: Perfect for the darkest, hidden corner in your basement. Behind that box you've never opened. Underneath all those old blankets. 7. Squirrel Purse: For when you're feeling a bit squirrely 6. Lip Radio: Lip service is a lot more exciting coming from this. Page down to see the top five. 5. Hawaiian Hula Boy: This is a much more welcome driving distraction than texting 4. Shark Lamp: Neil Diamond wants you to "Turn On Your Shark Light." 3. Pet Rock: Everyone wants a faithful friend that will never pee on the floor. 2. Fabric Cactus: No green thumb required 1. Crocheted Stocking: Here's a little Christmas cheer your Grandma would be proud of.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
