7/11 Gift Exchange Game

Well, it’s two sleeps until Christmas and it seems like everyone is in a panic to get their shopping done. Traffic is insane, people are cutthroat in lines, and I think we’ve forgotten the cheer we feel around Christmas.

I got together last night with my San Antonio Besties for our 3rd Holiday 7/11 Night. What I wore and how to play are below:

If you are getting together with a group and have no idea what to do (gal pals, family, coworkers, etc.), I’ve got the game for you! My family has been playing this game with guests all the time and it’s even made it’s way to my friends and coworkers. Here’s how 7/11 works.

Set a spending limit. This could be $20, $25, or $50, whatever you want. Each guest buys a gift/gifts and wraps them. You’ll need 1-2 sets of dice. One set works for about 5 people, so plan accordingly. Round one goes like this: Put the wrapped gifts in the middle of the group. Each person will roll the dice. If they get a 7 or an 11, they get to pick a gift. Once all the gifts are taken, each person will unwrap what they have. Now the fun part. Round 2: Set the timer for 10 minutes and start rolling. If someone lands on a 7 or 11, they get to steal a gift. Whenever the timer goes off, what you are left with, are your presents to keep. It’s hilarious! We’ve played this at Christmas, baby, and wedding showers. It’s so fun! Lotto tickets are always popular! Here are some gift ideas for one with your girlfriends!

Trip Recap: NYC

I had the best time with my mom and sister last weekend in NYC and I wanted to recap where we stayed, ate, and what we did!

We ventured over to Bryant Park from our hotel, Luma Hotel Times Square. I had the most delicious European Hot Chocolate, my sister went ice skating, and it was just the cutest little winter village.

We went over to Soho and did some GREAT SHOPPING! Eloquii, H&M, TJ Maxx, fantastic spots and it’s all really walkable once in the area!

My mom and I had the amazing opportunity to visit with our friends at Julie Vos and even got to meet Julie herself. It was absolutely incredible. We stopped by the New York Public Library on our walk and snapped this pic!

We also made our way over to Rockefeller and saw the tree, shopped at the AMAZING Anthropologie there, and watched the light show at Saks. If you’re in NYC for the holidays, you should definitely make it a priority to stop by!
