Christmas Prize Ideas for Icebreakers & Games

Christmas Prize Ideas for Icebreakers & Games

Chances are you’re going to play a few Christmas Icebreaker Games at your Christmas party.

It’s nice to have a few inexpensive prizes to give out to the winners.

Several years back we held a Sunday school party for the High school Juniors that we were teaching.

We played several icebreaker games (including Wrap It Up).

Before the party I went to the Dollar Tree and grabbed all sorts of fun things to put in a prize basket for the winners to choose from.

I love to place a bunch of prizes in a basket so the winners can choose something they really want! While it’s hard for me to imagine, not everyone loves chocolate!

This idea works for Youth and adults alike.

12 Prize Ideas for Christmas Icebreakers & Games

Here’s a list of 12 Prize Ideas for Christmas Icebreakers & Games:
Most of these items can be found inexpensively at your local Dollar Store, Target, or Wal-Mart.

1.Christmas CD’s – Watch for those $5 sales at LifeWay and other stores.

2. Little Debbie Christmas Cakes – Specialty treats that are only available at Christmas are always a hit!

3. Christmas Candy – Stretch that bag of Dove Peppermint Bark (my newest obsession) by placing 5-6 pieces in a small baggie. Or if you and your budget are feeling generous place whole bags of Christmas candies in the basket. I know plenty of people that would choose a bag of Christmas M&M’s over everything else! I’ve seen some Chocolate Santas and Christmas lollipops at the Dollar Store too.

4. Christmas Mugs – You should be able to snag these from $1-$5. Check your local Dollar Store and Walmart.

5. Christmas Toys – Target has a whole section of stocking stuffers. Pick up a Christmas Pez dispenser. Pick something fun!

6. Christmas Jewelry – I’m not talking about anything expensive. Light-up necklaces, inexpensive Christmas earrings.

7. Christmas Headwear – Check the Dollar Store, Target, and Wal-Mart for reindeer headbands, Santa hats, and the like.

8. Cocoa – Pick up a box or some packets of cocoa mix.

9. Gift Cards – If a $5 gift card is too much, put on the exact price of a milkshake, donut, or other treat – just be sure to note one free _______.

10. Christmas Ornaments – Check out these beautiful ornaments at CTA Inc (not an affiliate link).

11. Christmas Devotionals, Gift Books, or Coloring Books – CTA Inc has a Christmas devotional on sale for $0.99 (not an affiliate link).

12. Homemade Christmas Goodies – If you love to bake consider baggie up some Christmas cookies or candies for your winners to take home and enjoy.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on prizes for your icebreaker games.

Just have fun with it!

Merry Christmas!

I like jewelry.  A lot.

So when the opportunity to create a custom handmade piece of jewelry that would support women who are working to overcome difficult circumstances landed in my inbox I didn’t hesitate.

A Great Resource for Bibles


A Great Resource for Bibles

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that this resource is new to me.

Ya’all the prices on these Bibles are fantastic!! Our team purchased Bibles (admittedly hardback) for a steal at about $10 each. At the time I was thrilled with the purchase. But I would have much rather gotten many, many more paperback Bibles for the same price.

(Note: This post contains affiliate links for ChurchSource. I greatly appreciate any purchase you make through my site as it earns me a small commission which I use to help with the expenses of this blog.)

ChurchSource provides a large selection of Outreach Bibles to support many causes. Whether you aspire to introduce children to the story of Jesus, provide easy to read scripture to those who are visually impaired, witness to prison inmates, or provide support to those in the military or new mothers, there is a Bible designed to support and inspire.

I encourage you to browse the store on and be inspired by the array of Outreach Bible offerings.

Perhaps you want to:

  • Donate a case of Bibles to your local women’s shelter or pregnancy center
  • Purchase a case of two to have on hand for your next Women’s Ministry event
  • Support your church’s mission team by providing a box of Bibles for them to take in that country’s native language
  • Give a Bible to every mom in your MOPS program
  • Purchase a case of Spanish Bibles for your church or Women’s Ministry outreach efforts
  • Give a children’s Bible to every child cared for during your Women’s Bible studies
  • Be a good steward of your ministry funds and spend your remaining budget wisely

You can even have an imprint (name or logo) added to your Bibles. Wouldn’t that be neat to do for a big event?!

Go on over and check out.


When we give the gift of God’s Word, we play a part in changing the world.
