This is another fun gift exchange idea. It works perfectly for an ornament gift exchange when everyone brings a wrapped ornament to a party, but can be for other generic gifts as well.
Have your guests each bring a wrapped Christmas ornament or wrapped gift.
When it is time to exchange, have everyone stand in a large circle, one person next to another.
Each person should be holding the package they brought.
Read the RIGHT-LEFT poem out loud. Every time the word “RIGHT” is said in the story, pass the package you are holding to the right, and every time the word “LEFT” is said in the story, pass the package you are holding to the left.
At the end of the story, the package you are holding is yours to open!
