I love to play games. I love the challenge and the time spent with loved ones and friends. I think the game I love the most is the gift exchange game played at Christmas parties. There is nothing like being in a room with people you adore laughing and creating memories. I’ve changed up the typical gift exchange games by adding a few extra steps. You can read the instructions below. This is also a free printable. Click on the link below the game and it takes you to the print screen.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.


  1. I love this unique twist on the gift exchange game. This one will be so much fun to play!

  2. This sounds like a lot of fun. I’d like to play this game with my grown kids to find out their answers to the “if you opened gifts early” question.LOL

  3. I think there would be a lot of swapping happening, will make the party lively. Sounds like a fun game.

  4. Oh, that’s a fun list! I like this idea more than the white elephant game.

  5. I agree that this is an inspired idea for a game, would definitely liven things up at a party!
