  1. Jenny, I am so glad you shared this idea! How fun! I may just have to borrow it. 😉

  2. Jenny Jones says:

    We host a Christmas Movie night each year. I encourage the ladies to come with their slippers and comfy blankets. We have one gal that brings a Hot Cocoa machine and we have cups of hot cocoa and movie snacks to share. After an earring exchange, we watch a Christmas Movie. I usually find a Hallmark Christmas movie and purchase it on DVD for us to watch. Be careful to preview ahead of time. There are a lot of good ones out there with funny and inspirational messages if you search for them.

  3. What a great idea! I love that each woman only needed to bring one gift keeping the cost reasonable to all involved. And everyone got to go home with something! I’ll be filing this idea away to use in the future! Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. Cyndee, I have hosted a “Favorite Things” Christmas-themed party for the women’s Sunday School class before. The gifts we brought for an exchange was a favorite thing. We randomly selected a gift and when it was opened, that giver told why that was one of her favorite things. It helped us to get to know each other even better, plus it was fun! You know women, we love to tell each other about sales and things we like! I highly recommend it.
