"It’s better to give than receive - especially advice.”

Put up a Christmas tree in your establishment and decorate it with ornaments made out of folded slips of wrapping paper that are sealed shut.

Before your holiday party, have all of your guests draw a name for gift giving. The twist is, the names in the drawing aren’t guest’s names. They are names of residents of a local nursing home. Provide each guest with an idea of the types of things that resident may like, then ask guests to shop for gifts that are suitable for that person that will also fit in a Christmas stocking. At the party, set up an area where guests can decorate Christmas stockings providing glitter, jingle bells and other holiday craft store items. Also, ask guests to write a holiday message to their resident to tuck inside their stocking. As an added bonus, ask guests to vote for the best-decorated stocking and award a gift to the person who gets the most votes. Then, deliver the stockings to the nursing home after the event!
If you’d like to make giving more fun this Christmas, consider having your friends and family search for their gifts with one of the holiday hunts found at our sister company’s website. Oh what fun it is and at prices ranging from $17-$47, you’ll be laughing all the way!
