Cookie swaps are a great way to simplify your holiday baking. They give you a chance to receive a variety of tasty treats and share some of your favourite recipes with friends. Ask your guests to send you the name of their cookies, along with the recipe and you can print them off on holiday-themed paper for each guest. Ensure that each individual bakes at least 3-5 cookies per person so each guest has plenty to try and take home.

Hot Chocolate Bar
There’s nothing more comforting than a cup full of warm hot chocolate. Offer your guests a sweet set up of hot chocolate, sugar or chocolate-rimmed mugs and all the decadent hot chocolate fixings. Consider setting out marshmallows, candy canes, flavoured liquors, and whipped cream.

Festive Photo Booth
Allow yourself to let loose in a festive photo booth. Decorate an empty wall in your home with red and green streamers, cut out snowflakes, and wrapping paper. You can purchase holiday props, like Santa hats, Rudolph noses, and goofy moustaches from your local craft or dollar store. Ask your friends to wear tacky Christmas sweaters for the ultimate funny photo.

It’s always nice to go to a dinner and have a menu of the night’s dishes provided on the table. Create an added level of detail to your dinner party by crafting a menu showcasing your meal. Even if it’s just dinner and dessert, it’s an aspect of the night that will impress your guests.
