Have yourself a merry little Christmas with our best ideas for the ultimate holiday party. Settle in for an evening filled with delicious treats, festive drinks, and maybe even a some gift giving with these cheerful activities.

1. Pancakes and Pajamas Party

Put on your favorite holiday onesie and sink your teeth into soft, fluffy pancakes for one of the most laid-back parties you'll ever host. Encourage your family and friends to wear their wackiest Christmas pajamas and see who can outdo each other. The winner gets a fresh stack of pancakes with their favorite toppings (okay, fine, everyone's a winner at this party!).

2. Winter Sledding Party

Gather up your pals and their kiddos for a rollicking sledding party. After everyone's done running around in the snow, they can warm up inside with warm mugs of cocoa. Set out a garnish table with an assortment of cherries, caramel syrup, whipped cream, crushed candy canes, and sprinkles. It's the perfect way to toast to the season!

3. Christmas Movie Marathon

Build a fire, curl up with your family and friends, and get in the spirit of Christmas with your favorite holiday classics, like The Polar Express, Home Alone, and Miracle on 34th Street. Serve fresh popcorn with melted white chocolate drizzled on top for a holiday treat. To make things extra fun, ask guest to dress up as their favorite Christmas movie characters for an interesting evening.

4. Christmas Carol Karaoke Night

Invest in a home karaoke system, and load it up with your favorite holiday tunes. Have your guests sign a holiday record as a guest book before they take their turn at the microphone. As a token of your appreciation to the brave singers who volunteer, make trophies out of small, wooden instruments.

5. Cookie Exchange

Invite your pals to swing by with a dozen cookies in tow. Crank up the holiday tunes, nosh on cookies, and then send everyone packing with a bag full of treats. Set out cute recipe cards so guests can share how-tos for their new favorite desserts.

6. Gift Wrapping Extravaganza

Do you always find yourself wrapping your little one's presents an hour before Santa is scheduled to deliver them? This year, make gift wrapping more fun by inviting your friends over for a gift-wrapping party. Set up a table with wrapping paper, ribbons, stamps and tags galore and go to town. Afterwards, everyone can decompress with a nice mug of hot cocoa.

7. Gingerbread House Decorating Contest

Add a nostalgic element to your party by setting out supplies to make gingerbread houses and hosting an all-in-good-fun competition to see who can construct the sweetest abode. (Award an oven mitt to the winner!) Keep it simple by stocking up on affordable gingerbread kits that come ready to assemble - and be sure to choose an official judge!

8. Reverse Christmas In July Party

You've heard about Christmas in July parties, but now it's time to bring the tropical temperatures to December. Tell your guests to wear their best beach-themed attire (Hawaiian shirts and flip flops required) while they sip on piƱa coladas and eat these adorable cookies.

9. Home-Ski Party

If you don't make it out to the slopes this season, bring the warmth of a ski lodge to your own home by hosting an ski-themed party. Make sure your guests can cuddle up with a faux fur blanket, and decorate with vintage ski decor and anything wood-finished. Don't forget to have that fireplace burning!

10. Christmas Caroling

Go Christmas caroling! Your neighbors will be delighted to hear classic holiday hymns, and you'll have so much fun singing with your friends. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

11. Toy Drive

This is the season of giving back. Spread the holiday cheer by donating unwrapped toys to children in need through charities. Nothing will fill you more joy than ensuring others have a very merry Christmas.

12. Ice Skating Adventure

Lace up the skates and get ready to hit the ice! Skaters of all levels will have a blast gliding around and around. If you live in a winter wonderland, you can build your own rink or go out to a pond or lake - just make sure it's safe beforehand. If your winter months are on the warmer side, book some time at a local rink.

15. Pampering Party

The most wonderful time of the year can also be one of the most stressful. Take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle and invite the girls over for an afternoon of pampering. Treat yourself to professional services or get inspired to do your own nails, hair, makeup.
