Christmas Party 2011 - Christmas Day Game

I really enjoyed making and playing this game. It got everyone in a festive mood and involved very simple rules. To create this game, I researched a variety of wrapped present’s images and then actual gift ideas from boots and other similar sites.

Guests would pick presents randomly and see what gift they received. The game went down well and some of my guests took their ‘present’ cards home as a memento! Here are a couple of examples of images I used.....
