Classic Secret Santa
People love to give presents at Christmas, but presents in December can be extremely stressful. Presents in July can be a lot more fun. Don’t think that just because it is a present it has to be expensive. Create a budget or idea, like comical gifts and even hand me downs. Maybe it can be a regifting theme. Any way to make it fun.
White Elephant Gift Exchange
Most people know the White Elephant Gift Exchange. It is a fun game that is both exciting and rewarding at the same time. The idea of a white elephant gift exchange is to have everyone agree on a minimum and a maximum. To play the game, everyone is an order for a turn. Then the number of people are written down and you chose a number. Everyone draws a number. The first person chooses a gift and opens it. The next person chooses a gift and then she can decide to keep their present or steals the present number 1. This goes on where each turn someone can keep their present or steal one of the other presents. The game is over when the last person has a present.
Build a Sandman
Since you can’t build a snowman in July, you can build a sandman. Turn it into a competition and decorate the sandman. Have fun with it. Dress him up and make it a game.
Water Balloon Fight
Don’t be sad because you can’t have a snowball fight. Have a water balloon fight. Just as much fun, if not more so and much easier in July. Split up in teams or every person for themselves.
Break out the Christmas music and start singing. Do Christmas Karaoke and bust out all your favorite songs.
