Descriptive Gift Swap

August 21st, 2009 | by Suki |

If you’re planning a party or a get together with friends and family, try adding a Descriptive Gift Swap to the festivities.

When sending out the invitations, mention that there will be a fun gift swap during the party. However, the gifts must follow certain guidelines, or rather, certain adjectives.

To do this, randomly choose three or four adjectives, either by drawing them from a hat or asking someone to name the first four they can think of.

For example, perhaps you chose the words “small,” “striped,” “blue,” and “shiny”. Every gift brought to the swap, then, must fit those four adjectives. The gift may be purchased or homemade; it might be very costly or inexpensive; it might be designed for a male or a female. It doesn’t matter, as long as it fits the four words provided.

When all the gifts have been collected together and you’re ready for the swap, number them with a marker. Next, write the numbers on small slips of paper and place them in an envelope. Have each guest choose a number.

Now, one at a time, have each guest open the gift that has the corresponding number. It’s fun to see just how creative your guests can be!
