  1. White Elephant Gift Exchange:

This one is a classic game that most families or friends play the rules are very basic:

  • Everyone buys an item and wraps it and puts it under the Christmas tree.
  • The first person who was picked grabs a present and opens it.
  • The remaining people get the decision to either “steal” someone gift or unwrap another item under the tree.

  1. Saran Wrap Christmas Game:

This creative game can lead to a lot of fun!

  • First, wrap a bunch of small prizes into a giant ball of saran wrap
  • While the first person starts unwrapping the next person is rolling dice till the roll doubles, once they roll doubles the ball is passed onto the next person.
  • Don’t stop unwrapping till the person rolls doubles
  • You get to keep whatever falls out of the saran wrap
