4. White Elephant Gift Exchange

Set a price limit, bring a silly gift, and draw numbers out of a hat! It’s a great, fun party, all of the gifts spark conversations and silliness, and you can find all of the different types of rules you can use all over Pinterest!

5. Tacky Sweater Party

Forever a classic, a tacky sweater party never goes out of style!

Grab a Sweater: Check out BoxLunch, Hot Topic, & Shop Disney for pop culture sweaters, also check out Target for a last-minute sweater for that office party tonight! *My shirt is actually a pajama top from Francesca’s.

6. Pajama Party

Loving our buffalo plaid jams.

7. Cookie Bake

I used Alton Browns’ recipes for Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing on the Food Network’s website!

A few quick tips on sugar cookies, while you can totally make all of these with a hand mixer, a stand mixer makes the process go a lot faster! All you need is a ton of powdered sugar, a rolling pin, cookie cutters, parchment paper / silicon mat, offset spatula, piping bags / tips, and imagination!

8. Bonfire!

Whether you have room in your backyard to build a cinderblock pit like our fiends have, or you get metal one… There’s no question that a bonfire is one of the best wintery activities. Have a cup of cheer, put your feet up, and toast a marshmallow. It’s a blast!
