Hosting a party for your family, friend or coworkers is always fun, especially when it has a unique theme — and there’s no better excuse to host an epic event than Christmas! This year, in addition to indulging in all the fun holiday activities that come along with Santa’s favorite time of year — like decorating your Christmas tree, crafting homemade holiday decorations and watching your favorite Christmas movies — take the time to plan a holiday-themed gathering that your nearest and dearest won’t forget anytime soon.
We’ve rounded up dozens of the best Christmas party themes that are guaranteed to get everyone in the holiday spirit. From making homemade Christmas ornaments to baking Christmas cookies and gingerbread houses, there are so many activities to choose from that will entertain your guests — not to mention tons of hilarious Christmas party games for adults that you can bust out to keep people laughing all night long. So, whether you’re looking to host an epic event at home, your church or in the office, look to these merry Christmas party themes for inspiration. (Due to lack of space, I will only highlight three themes. But they are fantastic)
1 Party Theme: Stocking Stuffer Party

Everyone loves a good stocking stuffer — especially when the gift is cute and practical. Get each guest a holiday stocking to fill with small treats and presents and ask everyone to bring a few gifts under $10 to exchange during the party. Your guests will all leave with their very own goodie bag!
5 Party Theme: DIY Ugly Sweater Party
Ugly Christmas sweater parties are a holiday classic — and they’re even more fun when everyone can decorate them together. Ask everyone to bring an old sweater to the party, then offer pom-poms, sparkles, buttons, felt and more so they can spend the evening making their own holiday creations to wear. Don’t forget to host a competition for best sweater at the end of the night!
6 Party Theme: Holiday Scavenger Hunt

Hide Christmas items inspired by “The 12 Days of Christmas” song throughout your home (think golden rings and turtle doves). The person who finds the most “gifts” wins the prize!
OK, one more.
7 Party Theme: Wine and Charcuterie Party
Focus on the conversation and keep the food simple with light appetizers. Put together an easy grazing table filled with cheese, meats, crackers, grapes and other tasty fruits.
You can use these themes for a New Year’s Eve Party too!
