A New Kind Of Party

  Yesterday we talked about a simple $5 Family Gift Card exchange, by playing the reading the “Left-Right” stories.  While we are all thinking on the idea of DEFINE NECESSITY, lets talk about Office and Christmas gatherings with friends.  

This year, when you draw names, try this idea:

  Pick names and keep it secret. You purchase a gift/toy for that person’s “inner child”.  What you think they may have liked to receive when they were a child, OR even what they might have wanted to be when they grew up. Wrap it up, and put the person’s name on the gift tag. 

  At the party, everyone gets to unwrap their gift, one by one. Be prepared for lots of laughter and enjoyment! You’ll see everything from a doctor’s kit, to an artist’s kit, a basketball, plastic golf set, apron and chefs hat, a fishing pole, a lava lamp, a feather boa and tiara…….you name it!

  Once everyone has had their fun, and unwrapped the wonderful toys, a designated charity receives these great new toys for their Christmas gift giving! It’s fun for all, and makes for a very meaningful gift exchange with good feelings all around and a great outcome!

This idea is a great way to have some fun, but also pay it forward to others!

  1. I love the toy exchange idea–I copy and pasted it to a friend of mine who hosts a work party every year! Maybe next year it will be something different. (I also sent her your idea with the gift cards.) Thanks for the great ideas! I will suggest them to other people who I think may run with the idea as well. Thanks!

  2. What a fun and “giving ” idea!
    I have to say just being at the candle light service on Christmas Eve always make me wonder why we bought any gifts at all that service just really keeps the Christ in Christmas for me!

  3. Sounds like a really fun party idea! I shared your gift card idea with a friend today and hope to enlist my family into doing that next year. Just taking time to be still and consider the CHRIST of Christmas helps me stay focused on the REASON FOR THE SEASON. I definitely need to make more time to BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD. Thanks for sharing this idea…I’m giggling just thinking of how fun it could be!
