Having to find the perfect for your boyfriend’s family can be stressful. But just take a deep breath and it will be okay. Also, remember what I said, you cannot go wrong with customization! 

 

Fun Activities To Do For The Holidays

Here is a list of five fun activities you can do for the holidays with friends, family, or your boyfriend’s family! 

1. Have a Movie Marathon

There are so many holiday movie options out there. There are the classic ones, the ones on the Hallmark channel, the hidden gems, etc.

Of course, they do not have to be holiday-themed, however, they all need plenty of snacks like cookies, popcorn, candy, chips etc.

You need comfy blankets, pillows and you must wear your pajamas. So, get comfy, turn on the first movie and enjoy a marathon movie night! 

2. Go See Holiday Lights

I love going to see the beautiful decorative lights during the holidays. You can drive around and look at all the unique light displays, or you can find somewhere you can go walk around. You can even stop and get some cute pictures in front of the lights.

An easy way to find places to go see lights is to look online. There are some location lists available or sometimes people post on social media about where the good light displays are. So keep an eye out for posts to find the best lights!

3. Make Your Own Decorations

Buying decorations can get expensive so, you could make your own! Go to the craft store and get a bunch of supplies like paper, paint, glitter, ribbon, etc. You can look up ideas online or you could just wing it and rely on your own imagination.

You can make ornaments, wreaths, a sign, garland, etc. You can do this activity with friends, family or your boyfriend’s family.

Then at the end, you can share your amazing artwork with each other. I am nowhere near artistically talented, however, I still think this would be so much fun! 

4. Have a Secret Santa Gift Exchange

This is a classic activity done around the holidays. You just need a small or large group of people and you put everyone’s name in a bowl or hat. Then everyone picks someone, and that is who they have to buy a gift for. However, you do not tell anyone who you have until you all exchange gifts.

The goal is to make sure no one figures out who you have, then when you exchange gifts you reveal who you had by giving them the gift!

You need to be sneaky about buying the gift and you cannot ask for help from anyone in the group because then it reveals who you have. However, it is so much fun to see who everyone has in the end. 

5. Make Gingerbread Houses

This is a classic holiday activity. However, it can also be a frustrating activity. But it can still be fun. Especially if you do not take it too seriously.

You can build a small one by yourself or maybe work on a large one with friends or family. You can even build a village out of your gingerbread houses. Just have fun with it.

It will probably get messy and it may not stay up, but that is the fun of it. Just try your best and at the end, you eat all the candy and gingerbread.

That’s a wrap! This post was all about holiday gifts for boyfriends family. Did you enjoy the article? Let us know in the comments and share the love on social media.

Don’t worry. I have rounded up the best 55 Christmas gift ideas for best friends.

In this post:

Best Christmas Gifts (Overall)

1.  Reversible Yoga Mat

Problem solved, because this air purifier captures and removes pollen, dust, smoke, pet dander, mold spores, and germs, so you can ensure your friends’ safety. 

The feature that I love the most about this product is the ionizer that purifies the air around me.
