A couple of years ago I tried out a fun gift exchange game at one of our Christmas parties that I like to call “lucky last line.” You can read more about the party and how fun the original game was in this post but the basic idea is that you wrap up a gift a whole bunch of times and in between each layer, you put one stanza from the poem below. Start the gift off with one person and have them unwrap it. They read what’s on their stanza and pass the gift along to the next person who unwraps and repeats until someone finally gets to unwrap the final layer keeps and gift.
It’s still one of my favorite ways to gift out a surprise gift at parties or even just another creative gift exchange game idea, but you can’t use the same poem every single year, so this year I created two brand new poems that have the same idea but are a little more universal with the people they’re passing to. So rather than passing to someone whose blond, you pass the gift to someone who is standing near a wall (just in case there aren’t any blonds at your party).
So here you go, two brand new lucky last line gift exchange poems. You can print these two (and the original from my old party post) out by clicking on the image below or clicking here to download. Enjoy!
