How to Play the Christmas Right Left Party Game

The left right game for Christmas is a fun and hilarious Christmas passing game for exchanging presents.

First, you’ll need gifts. Ask guests to bring a gender neutral present. You should set a dollar limit ($5-$10 works fine) as well as instruct them to wrap the gift.

Alternatively, you can put together all the gifts, and include one or two that are of a higher price range to make things a little more fun.

When it’s time to play, have guests sit in a circle with the gift they brought, or select a pre-wrapped gift to start off with.

Download one of the printable passing gifts game printables below, then have one person read it off to the group. Everytime this person says “right,” the group should pass their gift to the right. Whenever the person says “left,” the group would then pass their gift to the left. At the end of the story, whatever gift is left in each person’s hand is theirs gift to keep.

Each printable has the rights and lefts color coded. The person reading should pause to make sure the group passes their gift before continuing with the story or poem.
