  •  Before the party, ask everyone to bring an item from home they no longer want but believe someone else could enjoy. Guests can use this opportunity to re-gift nice items that did not fit their personality. Dirty Santa gifts can be anything from a literally worthless homemade item, to a nice present that just about anyone would want. In fact, the best game usually involves a wide variety of gifts, leading to lots of humor and active trading. They should wrap their gifts and bring it to the party.
  •  Place all the wrapped gifts on a central table for guest to admire.
  •  Have everyone draw a number from a stocking to determine the order of play. The person with the number one goes first.
  •  The first guest comes up to the table and selects whatever gift appeals to them. They then open and announce their gift.
  •  The next player has the choice of stealing any ones gift who went before them or unwrap a new gift from the table. Each gift can only be stolen twice.
  •  Play continues until everyone has a chance to keep or steal a gift. The first player ends the game by deciding if they want to keep the gift they have or steal another.

Pin the Nose on Rudolph

Pin the Nose on Rudolph – This is a Christmas variation of pin the tail on the donkey. Though it is fun for kids, it is also a hoot after adults have their Christmas spirits.

  • Prepare the game by drawing a large picture of Rudolph on butcher paper. Cut out coaster sized circles out of red construction paper. Adhere double stick tape to the back of each.
  •  Have each guests write their name on the front of their reindeer nose with a sharpie.
  •  One at a time have the guest stand a foot from the poster and blindfold them. Spin them around once and let them stick the nose on Rudolph
  •  Whoever’s nose is closest to Rudolph’s actual nose is the winner.

Speed Wrap Christmas Games

 Speed Wrap – Speed wrap is a great game to get people up and moving. It is a bit madcap, but it is one of the best Christmas party games. Everyone will be laughing and socializing.

  •  Before the party set up a large table, with enough wrapping paper, scissors, rolls of tape, boxes and ribbon for everyone
  •  Divide guests into pairs and have them  put their one arm around each other so only one hand is free
  •  Each pair must work together to neatly wrap their package as fast as they can.
  •  The first pair to attractively wrap their gift, ribbon is the winner.

Christmas Carol Pictionary

 Christmas Carol Pictionary – Young an old can enjoy a rousing game of Pictionary. Give the classic game a Christmas twist using Christmas carols as the hidden phrase.

  •  Before the party write names of Christmas songs and Carols on slips of paper or index cards. Set up a large erase board or easel paper.
  •  Split guests into two teams.
  •  Teams take turns sending one player to the board. They pick a card and attempt to draw clues on the paper until someone guesses the Christmas song.  They cannot write numbers, letters, or making hand gestures.
  • Everyone tries to guess the carol no matter whose team the drawer is on. If your team member guesses the right answer first the team gets a point. If not the other team blocks and no point is awarded.
  •  Play continues until everyone has a turn at the board.
  •  Give bonus points if someone guesses a song correctly while it happens to be playing in the background.
