This contest is a kind of test for attentiveness. When all the guests sit at the festive table, ask them how many toys are on your New Year tree. And let them give an answer without looking at the tree. Of course, everyone will give an approximate figure, but one who suddenly guesses or will be closest to the truth will become a winner and receive a symbolic prize - for example, gingerbread cookie or the first glass of champagne.
Useful advice: do not forget to count in advance the number of Christmas tree decorations.

If you did not manage to dress up a Christmas tree, arrange this competition. Give the guests small sheets of cardboard, multi-colored markers, scissors and paper clips - let them draw New Year's pictures and cut them out, and then decorate the fir tree together with cardboard toys. You can also ask friends to sign jewelry as a keepsake.
The creator of the best Christmas tree toy is awarded a prize.

It's cool when at a party you meet not only old friends, but also new people. Here is a great idea for you to laugh heartily even in the company of those you see for the first time. The task is simple: each of those present tells the story of the three most unsuccessful gifts that he had to receive for the New Year.
Two of them are fictional and only one real. The task of everyone else is to guess where the truth is, where the lie.

This game has long become a classic during gatherings with friends. And this is a big plus - no need to waste time explaining the rules.
The only thing is to take care of the cards in advance (you can use sheets from a notebook). Write on them the nouns associated with the winter holiday. It can be the heroes of famous Christmas films, New Year's interior items, dishes, clothes - but anything! And then you know: one person draws out a card and, using pantomime, tries to portray what is written. The task of the public is to guess the word.
Give each guest a piece of paper and hand in the scissors. Everyone needs to cut a spruce, however, with one condition - the eyes should be closed. When everyone copes with the task, it remains to take a look at what happened - usually it turns out funny. Choose the winner of the contest all together.
For this game you will need disposable plates of thin cardboard and a set of markers. Each participant puts such a plate on his head and draws on it. First you need to draw a straight line in the center - this is the earth, and then draw a Christmas tree on the earth, on it - a star, below - a gift, and on the about m tree itself - toys. For each hit, a point is awarded: the spruce touches the ground - 1 point, the star is on the crown - 1 point, the toys hang on the tree - plus another point, the gift was under the tree - also 1 point. The winner is the one who managed to score four points or simply more than the rest.

Before the guests arrive, take a photo (you can phone) of any item related to the New Year - for example, a Christmas tree toy or a souvenir - that is in your home. When everyone gathers, show the photo to the guests and give the task to find this thing during the evening. Of course, having promised a prize. One caveat: try to make sure that the item that everyone will be looking for is not hidden in the far corner of your closet and is not in an inaccessible place, next to valuables.
