Improv Talent Show
Why not host an improv talent show with a holiday spin? Allow all interested guests to participate by telling jokes, singing their favorite Christmas song, dancing, performing a magic trick or doing anything else that showcases their talents and promotes the spirit of the holidays at the same time. Check out these funny Christmas jokes if you need a little inspiration! Don’t worry, they’re all family-friendly!
Blind Gift Wrapping Game
This game is perfect for individual or team play. Supply each guest or team with an empty gift box, scissors, wrapping paper, tape and anything else you can think of to completely wrap a gift. Each player also needs a blindfold. Obviously, the first person or team who succeeds in wrapping their gift is the winner. These girls show you how to do it with hilarious results!
Christmas Present Truth or Lie
Ask each guest to think of the worst Christmas present they’ve ever received, along with two additional (equally-bad) gift ideas. Each person then talks about the three gifts they came up with. The object of this game is to have the other guests figure out which gifts were real and which are a lie.
Holiday Card Match-Up
Cut the covers of several old holiday cards in half. Put them all in a small basket or container. As your guests arrive, ask each person to reach in and pull one out. Once everyone is in attendance, announce that the first three couples who find their match will win a prize. This is a great way to get everyone mingling.
These are just five of many examples of easy to-play-games, meant to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. After all, what’s a party without a few games? Remember, you’re never too old for holiday fun and these suggestions provide just that.

I will be trying these games with my friends and family this Christmas. Thanks for sharing the idea.
I love the adult games. I think it’s important to still feel the “Christmas” spirit even as you get older. I battled with this after finding out Santa wasn’t real. It’s good to know there are different ways to get excited for the holidays again.
The games sound like so much fun. I can’t wait to give them a try with my family.
Those are awesome! I think the adults will definitely have a lot of fun playing these games. There’s nothing more fun than having games at Christmas!
These all sounds like fun games to play, especially the blind gift wrapping. Our family does a gift swap and gift stealing game. Have no idea what it’s called, we just do it each year.
What great games! I’ll have to keep these in mind.
Great games you can play all year round! 🙂
