Gifts for the New Year
Choosing and wrapping a gift for any holiday is a familiar and interesting thing. Hover, do not always know how to properly present a present, and therefore even an expensive thing may seem ordinary to the addressee. Let’s look at what are the nuances of the original gift giving for the New Year.
How can you give to children?
No matter what anyone says, there is no single instruction for the original presentation of gifts. And the matter may lie in different situations, the age group of a person and his sense of humor. And because the approach to the same gift is the most diverse. For example, it can be a developed “ritual” or improvisation.
If this is a present for a small child, you can add notes of magic to the gift. For example, you can hang Christmas socks over the fireplace or in other places in the living room so that on New Year’s Eve a good wizard fills them with funny or useful gifts. Children will be fascinated by this idea, it has every chance to turn into an annual ritual. And even as adults, they will pass this tradition on to their children.
If the child believes in miracles, you can ask the neighbors to put a gift under the door and call. Thus, it turns out that Santa Claus came in, but could not stay, because he has a lot of work, and all the children in the world are waiting for gifts. If parents have the opportunity you can order Santa Claus at home, who will hold a congratulation and give the baby a gift.
Children love the surprises that can be found during the festive event by inviting the child’s friends to it. You can come up with a small game with tasks and prizes. When passing the game, you can increase interest with symbolic gifts, and leave the main prize as a win.
Tasks and prizes can be hidden in some places in the living room, for example, in balloons, Christmas socks, Christmas tree decorations.
Small items can be wrapped in gold foil and hung on the Christmas tree instead of toys. Moreover, if there are several children in the family, it is advisable to sign which present is intended for whom. To make the child find it faster, you can beat it with a riddle or a note of the plan “I am your gift, find me.” In this case, the note can be put in a regular envelope, signed and thrown into the mailbox. You can just give the child an envelope with a note.
How to surprise adults?
Nothing will be more memorable at the celebration of the New Year’s celebration than a little magician presenting gifts to adults. Agree, for many of us it will bring a lot of positive emotions. To do this, you can dress up a child in Santa Claus or a magical elf, a character from a winter fairy tale. A girl can become a Snow Maiden or a little fairy bringing gifts to obedient adults.
The situation in which the child will ask if the adults behaved ll all year has a positive message. Without knowing it, they will think about their behavior, perhaps remember certain moments of their childhood. And if you add an entourage in the form of a “list of obedient boys and girls”, this will completely allow you to immerse yourself in a festive atmosphere in which you can play along with the children, which will strengthen their acting skills.
If adults are far from this, you will have to look for other options for presenting a New Year’s gift. Depending on this, the method of presenting the gift will also change. For example, a corporate event with colleagues will be more interesting if you take the initiative to hold it.
You can come up with a whole program with a draw, perform various forfeits, or stop at a small comic presentation in verse.
Festive congratulations on the presentation of the present can be beaten with contests for each guest. This will allow you to creatively distribute gifts to everyone, in addition, the method of presentation will be different from others. For example, someone can be asked to improvise a quatrain about the New Year’s holiday, another guest can be given the task of reading a New Year’s rap. The third friend is to sing a hit song, and the fourth one is to dance to it, imagining himself as an advanced Santa Claus.
There can be a lot of options. You can congratulate your friends in an original way by arranging a spontaneous performance in poetic form. You can involve several people in the presentation by coming up with a corporate or friendly skit on a comic topic. To do this, you can write a small script in advance with the presentation of gifts, for example, about a fun fly, a beauty fox.
Giveaways are also lcome. Hover, they must be appropriate, because not a single holiday in which rude and stressful jokes are allod will leave good memories in your memory. Write a letter from childhood telling about the time capsule. Arrange a quest with the whole company in search of a capsule (boxes with gifts for guests, friends or family members).
A few tasks are enough, but believe me: they will captivate everyone, and the gifts themselves will be remembered for a long time, even if they are purely symbolic.
To have fun, don’t wait for the guests to get tired. It is necessary to conduct such games at the beginning of the festive event. So that the guests are not bored, you can beat the presentation of gifts with a quest with notes in the form of quatrains of Nostradamus. Solving funny puzzles will especially appeal to those who love this.
For greater immersion in the right atmosphere, you can add entourage in the form of living room design elements.
If you want to creatively give a present to a teenage relative, consider his interests. For example, you can subscribe to his idol in advance and ask the star to say a few words to the addressee (or write in the feed). Of course, not all stars respond to requests from fans, but there are those who willingly communicate with their subscribers. Shoot a cool video-congratulation in the form of a cover for a teenager’s favorite song. Believe me, today’s youth will respond to this better than traditional gift giving.
You can play a friend with an unusual lottery, saying that the person has won untold alth and a subscription to attend a festive event in a friendly circle. It is necessary to prepare props in advance in the form of a huge check, handing it to the addressee along with your gift.
By the way, a small gift can be issued at the location of the seal of a huge check. Show your imagination by signing it (for example, with funny poems or a comic congratulation).
What to consider?
Creatively handing out gifts for the New Year does not mean handing them over with the words “this is for you.” Neither practical jokes nor jokes will be understood by those who are far from it. But if you want the gift to be special, it is better to give it yourself, which is especially important for loved ones. You should not shift it to others, because the more care and thoughts you put in, the more interesting the congratulations will turn out.
You should not use ready-made hackneyed templates: they are often boring and of the same type. Be individual, create something of your own. Pay attention to packaging: it can be creative, which allows you to increase the status of the simplest thing at times. Children and connoisseurs of originality can present a gift in a box pasted over with tiny LED flashlights. It will be especially magical to look at such a present against the background of others if you dim the light at the time of delivery.
If the scenario with the search for gifts is taken as the basis for giving, do not write too many notes with tips and tasks: guests will quickly get tired of this. The game is remembered when it is short. To increase interest in the search, cut a sheet with a map of the conditional location of the treasure into several parts or puzzles and hide the fragments in a specific room.
During the invitation process, ask guests to remember to bring a positive vibe with them.
Sometimes the idea of giving is suggested by the gift itself. For example, an unusual pillow in the form of a man’s shoulder and arm can be presented to your beloved with the words: “this thing will make your sleep easier while I’m not around.” New Year’s holiday gives a lot of ideas for implementation. You can:
- give surprise gifts by organizing a funny lottery;
- arrange themed team games, where gifts will be prizes for everyone;
- organize a New Year’s auction, in which the price for gifts will be the guests’ jokes;
- send letters to guests with the content “your gift is with me, see yourself ll and come to this address at such and such a time.”
