Christmas Carol Karaoke Party
We all know it gets colder outside around Christmas, and carolling is not as popular as it used to be.
But what if you and your friends love Christmas carols? What are you to do? A simple solution to your dilemma is to carol indoors, in the comfort of your own home.
That sounds crazy, right? It doesn’t have to be. By renting a karaoke machine, you can host a Christmas party that revolves around carolling without even going outside. Luckily for you, you can find a karaoke machine rental company on Bidvine.
Practice karaoke enough, and you could become a good enough singer to be a guest on Carpool Karaoke! Imagine following in the footsteps of celebs like One Direction and Elton John! Sure, it’s unlikely, but you can create your own videos to the same tune and have plenty of fun with your friends.
If you’re interested in brushing up on your vocal skills before you host a karaoke party at any time of the year, hire a singing teacher. They can help you on your way to singing glory!

Christmas Cookie Exchange
Christmas simply isn’t complete without fresh-baked cookies. It’s always better to have multiple varieties of cookies so you can enjoy them throughout the season. But, how are you supposed to bake different kinds of cookies without going crazy?
That’s where cookie exchanges come in handy. You can bake a huge batch of one kind of cookie and invite your friends over to trade batches of cookies. Then, you’ll be set with plenty of cookies of different varieties without any extra effort.
A Christmas cookie exchange is a tried and true Christmas party theme, so why not give it a go? If you’re not interested in baking the cookies yourself, consider hiring a pro to do the legwork. A pro that offers sweet buffet services can bake different kinds of cookies for your exchange, and make your life exceptionally easier!
Bidvine tip: If you’re feeling a bit out of shape going into the Christmas party season, consider working with a personal trainer. A Bidvine pro, Louisa Hill, shared her advice on getting in shape for parties in a recent pro post.
Are you looking for a holiday with twice the resistance of a normal holiday? Then look no further than this holiday invented by The O.C.‘s Seth Cohen. Not only is Chrismukkah a perfect combination of Christmas and Hanukkah, it’s also a great excuse to eat brisket.
To host the ultimate Chrismukkah party, make sure you decorate with an equal amount of Christmas and Hannukah decorations. Then, throw on some Death Cab for Cutie and serve up your food.
Build a Chrismukkah menu with brisket, latkes, good cheese and wine, and you’re set. You should also make sure to have enough Christmas cookies and doughnuts to go around. If you need some help putting your meal together, feel free to outsource your cooking and hire a drop-off caterer! They’ll do all the cooking, then leave the rest to you (that way, you can trick your friends into thinking you cooked!).
Classic Christmas Party
We couldn’t have a list of Christmas party ideas without including the classic, could we? After all, it’s a classic for a reason.
To host the ultimate Christmas party, you’ll need a menu full of classic dishes and lesser-known dishes alike. Feel free to ask your guests to contribute dishes to the table so that all the cooking doesn’t all come down on you. But, if you go the potluck route, you may want to organise it a bit more than simply asking your friends to bring a dish. You should set out a list of dishes and ask people to sign up to bring specific plates.
Would you like to make sure your party is as Christmas-themed as possible? Consider hiring someone to act as Father Christmas. Any children at your party are sure to love it, and your grown-up guests will, too. Request a Father Christmas impersonator on Bidvine for free, and get custom bids from pros near you.
Does your home need a bit more decoration before it’s ready to host your classic Christmas party? If you’d rather spend time with your friends and family, hire a professional to hang your Christmas lights inside and outside your home. Then, you can use the time you would have used hanging lights to relax by the fire with your loved ones. You also won’t have to be stuck outside in the cold, which is an added bonus!

Christmas Shopping After-Party
This idea comes straight from the lifestyle queen herself, Martha Stewart! Get your friends together and head out to the shops, then come back to your home and host a bit of a party!
You can even prepare the food beforehand by using a slow cooker so that you come home to a fresh-cooked meal. Or, you could prepare cold appetisers the day before and keep them in the fridge. Either way, make sure you come home to some snacks because you’ll need them after dealing with pre-Christmas shopping.
You may also be looking for a nice drink after getting home from Christmas shopping. If you hire a bartender for your shopping after-party, that’s another thing you won’t have to worry about! You can simply sit back and relax with your friends after a long day at the shops.
This type of party is perfect for bringing family members together. If you have kids off at uni, they’re probably looking forward to helping you trim the tree. Hosting a tree-trimming party when they get home is a great way to make trimming the tree a family affair.
Get all your tree-trimming supplies out of storage before the party, so you don’t have to worry about them during the soirée. Try serving small bites that resemble Christmas baubles or Christmas trees to make the party really come to life.
Consider hanging the lights on your tree ahead of time. You don’t want to have to untangle them and string them around the tree when you have company over, after all. We mentioned hiring a pro to hang your Christmas lights around your home earlier, and they can help with this, too! All you have to do is submit a free request on Bidvine and get custom bids from trusted, local pros.
