December is always a busy time and can be stressful when it comes to hosting a holiday party. Statistics show up to 88 percent of people experience holiday stress including pressure and finances tied to hosting a party and panic in giving the best party or gift. Make it your goal to enjoy the holidays by planning ahead and laughing more. Have fun and spread holiday cheer with your event. Don’t take it too seriously!

Here are some simple games, or variations on known games, that can be played at any holiday party to create a festive, engaging atmosphere while making planning easy.

  • Christmas Charades

Also, consider giving stress-relieving gifts that will always get a smile like gift cards for massages, facials or pedicures or a movie package with tickets and concessions treats. These are experiences people enjoy getting and look forward to redeeming.
