Although many holiday events are cancelled this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t still spread some holiday cheer! Drive up parties have been all the rage this year, so why not continue them with some holiday flare? There are plenty of ways to celebrate Christmas while keeping your distance. Feel closer than ever with family, friends and relatives by getting them involved in the fun too! Keep the holiday spirit alive while trying out these activities, decoration ideas and gift inspirations.
Decorate Your "Sleigh" and Leave a Gift on the Porch
Let friends and family know that Santa's on his way! Keep it simple and decorate your car with red and green garland, streamers and Christmas lights. Add some winter magic with a snowflake cutout set and this "Let it Snow" banner. Disguise your car with a Santa’s sleigh or Polar Express cut out. Your friends and relatives will really think Santa is on his way! You can always deliver a personalized holiday message as you drive by with a Christmas themed personalized banner.
Once you have gotten their attention with your awesome holiday decorations, drop off a holiday gift on their porch. Fill personalized cookie tins and cupcake wrappers with your favorite holiday treats. Make grandma’s family recipe or try out something new! Favor bags and candy jars can also hold a delicious gift. Don’t want to make your own gift? Don’t worry, we have plenty of personalized chocolate candy, candy cane stickers, and lollipops to choose from. If you are looking to leave a gift with a little less calories, then give the gift of a personalized tumbler, travel mug or personalized coasters.
Stay a While & Be Present
Before you drive away, make sure to leave the greatest gift of all, yourself! While we may not be able to be with our loved ones this holiday season physically, you can give them the greatest gift of all, yourself! You can do this a few ways thanks to Shindigz. Create a lifesize photo standee of yourself or even your entire family. Be there with grandma and grandpa for their holiday meal and on Christmas morning.
A personalized picture frame not only makes a great gift, but is perfect for displaying your family’s Christmas card or holiday family photo for your friends and family. Be with them anywhere where they go by giving them a personalized keychain in fun winter designs. These gifts not only will help you spread holiday cheer but are great keepsakes for this holiday season.
Make it a Competition! Have an Outdoor Decoration or Christmas Photo Contest
Get your friends and family involved in your drive by gift giving and letting them know that they can be part of an outdoor decorating contest. Take a photo of each house you deliver your gifts to and send them digitally to everyone participating. Have each participant vote for their favorite yard display and give the winner a prize (something other than a year’s subscription to the Jelly of the Month club). Shindigz has plenty of outdoor decorations that are worthy of first prize. Choose a theme and find everything you need in one place. Wish everyone season’s greetings with a garage door banner or welcome toy soldiers and sugar plum fairies to your front porch with a Nutcracker door banner set.
Another way to play a fun holiday game is to share fun family photos and vote for your favorite one! Set the scene with large party props and transform your living room into Santa’s Workshop or a winter wonderland. There are tons of backgrounds, props and standees to choose from! After you have taken the perfect photo, have your friends and family make festive Christmas cards. Collect and deliver them as you drive to each house and have everyone vote for the best.
