Are you of the opinion that Christmas music shouldn’t start until after Thanksgiving? Or are you hopping on that one-horse-open-sleigh as soon as the air turns crisp?  Either way, those holly jolly tunes seem to make everything a bit more magical during the holiday season. This year we’re celebrating some of our all-time favorite Christmas songs–and you better believe Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is on my list. We’ve teamed up with Sony to create a Christmas Song Bingo game with their holiday playlist this year, a dream come true collaboration. Trust me, this playlist is THE soundtrack of the season, full of beloved classics and recent pop renditions.

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to host a gift wrapping party. Invite your friends over and tell them to bring a load of presents they need to wrap in addition to a few wrapping supplies. You supply additional wrapping papers, ribbons, gift tags, and plentiful treats! This year, we put on Sony’s Christmas Playlist and cranked up the volume to enjoy while we worked. I handed everyone a bingo sheet so that while we’re wrapping, we can play bingo throughout the evening. The songs include all your favorites including Deck the Halls by Mannheim Steamroller, Last Christmas by Wham!, and my personal fave: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by *NSYNC. I prepared a few small gifts to give the first few winners who get BINGO. Becca was the first lucky winner to get bingo!  

It’s such a great way to spend time with friends, get some much-needed wrapping done without any wandering eyes, and get into the holiday spirit with the playlist of the season!

Christmas Music Bingo Sheets (there are different versions!)

  • Download the Bingo sheets, print them off, and trim any excess paper if necessary.
  • Feel free to laminate the bingo sheets to help them last longer or print them off on a thicker paper.
  • Bag of hard candy to act as markers for the bingo sheets

What you need for your own Wrapping Party:

  • Wrapping Paper
  • Ribbons and trims
  • Gift Bows
  • Tissue Paper
  • Gift Bags
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Gift Tags

As soon as all your guests arrive, hand out the bingo sheets and candy markers. Turn on the tunes and with each song, make sure to place a marker over the corresponding picture on your bingo sheet. Continue as you listen to the playlist. Once someone gets bingo (5 in a row), reward them with a small prize. Continue listening/dancing/grooving and wrapping through the night and award more bingo winners as you go.

This Christmas bingo is the perfect accompaniment to any holiday activity you have this season: Making Christmas cookies? Play some tunes in the background and a round of bingo while you’re at it. Winner gets to lick the bowl! Going on a road trip to visit family? Turn up the radio and give everyone a bingo sheet during the drive. First one with bingo gets a treat at the gas station!
