They say, “It’s the thought that counts,” but if someone doesn’t think much about a gift from the White Elephant, they do Yes, really? Some might treat themselves to a bottle of quality tequila or a sought-after beauty palette. Others might be browsing a dollar store’s discount store and have spare change for a piece of gum. Others might hit a pet store with a going-out-of-business offer. “The weirdest gift I ever got on vacation was… a goldfish.” Toni Talks told HollywoodLife when discussing the pros and cons of gifting as part of launching Hornitos’ Green Elephant Shop.

“At that point, I had never owned a pet, so the excitement of unwrapping my gift ended in panic!” says the comedian, who serves as the Green Elephant Store’s virtual “shopkeeper.” HL. “I’ve received a lot of weird/kinda funny gifts in my time (never dirty socks [laughs]) which is why I really understood this campaign with hornitos and thought it was so magical – because who wouldn’t like the opportunity to exchange a crappy gift for some money! Honestly, anyone can relate to it!”

With TonyTalks at the helm of the store, the Hornitos Green Elephant Shop will be opening Monday 26th December to Friday 30th December (think of it as a virtual pop-up). People as young as 21 can drop by to send photos of their lackluster white elephant gifts for a chance at $25 (in the form of an e-gift card) that allows them to buy something they really want — like a nice bottle of hornitos .

Speaking of which, if Tony were to fill in for Santa, he wouldn’t go that far in giving someone a much-needed bottle of Hornitos. “If anyone deserves the gift of Hornito’s tequila, it’s my mom,” he says HL. “She deserves the best White Elephant gift as she knows how to keep the spirit of the holiday season alive and deserves to celebrate that spirit all year long! I hope everyone gets the gift they want – but if not, you can exchange it on the 26th Happy Holidays!!

To ensure you have a great holiday, Tony has prepared an EXCLUSIVE playlist for you HollywoodLife some of his favorite songs for this season, including a classic track by rap pioneers RunDMC. “I like to crank up the holiday season and one Christmas song on my playlist rotation is Run DMC’s ‘Christmas in Hollis’. It’s such a classic—upbeat, fun, and a traditional song played at my family’s holiday celebrations every year,” he says.

Backstreet Boys, “It’s Christmas Time Again”

Tony: I’m so nostalgic when it comes to the holiday season and this one brings me back

Editor’s note: Spotify doesn’t have it, so we’ll use their first song as a placeholder. Consider buying music this holiday season! Streaming doesn’t always have it.

Run DMC Christmas in Hollis

This is my classic but underrated favorite song. It’s a blast from the past that everyone needs in their rotation.

Kacey Musgraves, “Ribbons and Bows”

Kacey Musgraves put such a fun twist on the holidays with this song that I could just repeat it (and often do!)

Ariana Grande, “Santa Tell Me”

This is just a Christmas must-have, period

Chris Brown, “This Christmas”

This song is timeless and always puts me in the holiday spirit!
