  4. At Home

    • Host a Charity Secret Santa – This is were you draw names like a regular Secret Santa, but you buy a kids toy for the person who’s name you got that represents them in some way. Everyone opens there gift with an explanation as to why the toy was selected for that person (maybe a nickname or something that reminds you of them) and then all the toys are donated to a children’s toy drive. Its a lot of fun and charitable too!
    • Have a Games Night – Get a game like SceneIt, Balderdash, Apples to Apples, Telestrations or download Family Feud or Heads Up apps and host a friend game night.
    • Holiday Movie Night – Rent your fav (or find out when its playing on TV), invite friends, and host a holiday movie night. Play fun game while watching like pause the movie and everyone has to guess what the next line is.
    • Ugly Holiday Sweater Party – Have all guest wear an ugly holiday sweater and vote to see who’s is the ugliest! This can be combined with the Holiday Movie Night or Games Night or Charity Secret Santa night. For great ideas on Ugly Holiday Sweaters see December’s Style Club article.
