Elf Gift Exchange Game For Christmas Parties

The Elf Gift Exchange Game is perfect for any Christmas Party where you plan to exchange gifts!

Unlike the Dirty Santa or White Elephant Gift Exchange Game where participants are encouraged to steal gifts from those who have gone before them, the Elf Gift Exchange Game takes the stealing out of your guests’ hands with directions to trade or open a gift, right on each numbered card. Many of the directions include quotes or references that capture the whimsical and heartwarming spirit of “Elf” for up to 24 guests.

Elf Gift Exchange Rules

  1. Place wrapped gifts in the center of the room. (Each guest brings a gift worth a pre-determined amount. I suggest $10 or $25.)
  2. Have each person draw a card. (This game was designed to be played with 24 people or less.)
  3. Start with the number one and go in sequential order, following the directions on each card.
  4. Don’t get attached to any gift because, well, there are some things you should know. First off, you probably won’t keep it!

Elf Game Cards

Each game card directs game players to trade or open gifts as they quote lines from or make references to the movie “Elf”.
