Let’s be honest: the holiday season may be stressful. Get together with your closest friends for a night of relaxation, wine, music, and homemade face masks.

Do you possess a hidden skill? Display it off with a spontaneous talent show, complete with Christmas tunes. Don’t forget the reindeer headbands and Santa hats.

#16 Christmas Characters as the Christmas Party Theme

#17 Reverse Christmas in July as the theme of the Christmas party

Christmas in July, a midsummer occasion to celebrate with some yuletide enthusiasm, is well-known among beachgoers.

Who says Santa hats and cowboy boots don’t go together? Play these country Christmas songs for a country spin on your conventional Christmas party, and your guests will be line dancing all night.

A good Christmas party does not necessitate high heels and Spanx. In your coziest PJs, invite your girls over for a night of wine and Christmas movies.

#21 Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire as the Party Theme

One thing Nat King Cole was correct about is that there is something special about roasted chestnuts around the holidays. They’re also a nutritious treat because they’re high in Vitamin C. This Christmas season, try roasting your own with friends (though they’re also wonderful pre-roasted).

With this light and fun cocktail hour party, mix martinis and mistletoe. You make a Dirty Snowman, a Cranberry Mimosa, or another festive drink for your guests. After all, who doesn’t like Eggnog?

#29 Hot Cocoa Exchange as the party theme

Everyone prepares hot chocolate differently, so a hot chocolate potluck is a great way to try out your friends’ variations.

#30 Reindeer Games as the theme of the party

Your usual game night may be transformed into a holiday-themed game night with a few little tweaks. Reindeer Toss or Pin, the Nose on the Snowman, are two games we recommend.

Aside from the standard “simply add water” variety, there are a variety of fascinating tastes to try.

Nothing beats curling up in front of a Christmas movie. Invite your friends to dress comfortably for a holiday movie marathon with Christmas classics and an infinite supply of delicious treats.

There’s always that one neighbor whose Christmas lights outshine everyone else’s. Take your pals on a tour of the most spectacularly extravagant Christmas lights in your neighborhood. Consider renting a car or limo if you really want to make it memorable.

#39 Après-Ski Party as the Party Theme

So you weren’t able to visit the Alps this year? That’s fine; with a few finishing touches like faux-fur rugs and blankets, rustic wooden serving dishes, and a roaring fireplace, you and your Fair Isle sweater-wearing visitors will feel as if they’ve just stepped off the slopes.
