Yesterday I shared the Best Secret Santa Gift Idea EVER and now it’s time to talk about holiday gift exchange games. Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite Holiday Gift Exchange Games that you all are going to love.
Raise your hand if you love a fun game? The holidays should be about having fun while spending time with friends, family, co-worke and the best way to have fun is to play a game! But, we’re not just talking about a regular game. We’re talking about gift exchange games!
There are so many great Holiday Gift Exchange Game Ideas and today I’m sharing five of my favorite.
We have a secret gift exchange every Christmas with the adults in our family. This is awesome for multiple reasons. Not only does it cut down on the number of gifts we have to buy but it makes the gift giving process exciting. Plus, it gives us something fun to do on Christmas with the entire family. I can honestly say it’s a fabulous family tradition that we all look forward to every year.
5 Awesome Holiday Gift Exchange Games to Play
I’m just gonna say right now that these are my favorite gift exchange games. They’re very entertaining and they’ll get everyone excited about their gift.
Gift Exchange Chaos
This is a very fun game. Cut the cards and place in a bowl. Players take turns choosing a card and trade gifts according to what the card says. Players open their gift after everyone has picked a card and switched gifts with someone.
The Left-Right Christmas Game
Another fun game that requires everyone to carefully listen to a story being read aloud with many occurrences of the words “left” and “right.” Players follow these verbal cues, passing gifts to their left or right until the story ends and each person keeps the gift they’re holding.
A few of my favorite Left-Right Christmas stories:
Just like the game Musical Chairs but everyone get’s a gift! Have everyone sit in a circle. Start with one gift and play a Christmas song. Players pass the gift until the music stops. The person holding the gift keeps that gift. Continue playing until every player has a gift.
Switch Steal Unwrap Gift Exchange Game
This game sounds AWESOME! Find all the directions and details over at Play. Party. Plan. Britni definitely knows how to make life fun!
This is the game we’re playing this year. Players stand up when they hear a statement that applies to them. Everyone standing exchanges gifts and then sits back down. Gifts may be traded more than once to ensure that everyone has a new gift. Once all the statements have been read, each player opens their gift. Doesn’t this sound fun?
