That time of the year is rolling around, and it’s a great time for giving! If you want to do a gift exchange at work or with friends, there are plenty to do. Here are some gift exchange ideas besides the obvious “Secret Santa.”
White Elephant – This is sometimes called “Yankee Swap” too. At this gift exchange, everyone anonymously contributes a gift. Going around in a circle, people can either pick an unopened gift from the middle or steal one that someone already has.
Gift Guess – Make gifts a little more fun by wrapping a gift up in a way that disguises it. Everyone looks at it and the first person to guess what it is gets to keep it.
Charity Exchange – Want to give back for the holidays? Have everyone write their name down on a piece of paper along with their favorite charity. Then, have everyone draw someone’s name. Whoever you get, you’ll make a donation to their favorite charity.
Cocktail Swap – Having an adult Christmas exchange? A cocktail swap is a fun way to share your favorite drink with someone. Get a box or bag and put all the ingredients for a yummy cocktail in it. Then, make them all together!
Remember, you can always make up your own gift exchange, too.
