1. Each person should bring a gift to an agreed value (for example, $10), suitable for males or females of any age, if possible. They should be wrapped neatly.

2. All the guests stand in a circle holding the gift they brought. The master of ceremonies (MC) reads the left right story. Every time the word "right" is read, all the players pass their gift to person on their right. Every time the word "left" is read, players pass their gift to the person on their left.

3. The gift that each person is holding at the end of the story is the gift that get to keep. No one can exchange gifts.

The Toy Soldier
(A Fun Christmas Gift Exchange Games Story)

    LEFT! LEFT! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT! LEFT! LEFT! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT!The little toy soldier wearily marched around the toy shop. He had been marching all night! LEFT! LEFT! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT! without a single break. He would be so glad when morning came and he could finally stand still again.

    He didn't like this business of coming to life at midnight. At the stroke of twelve, all the toys LEFT their positions, sprang to life and busily started playing. RIGHT away Tommy Bear started doing somersaults. Betty ballerina LEFT her stage and danced RIGHT around the toyshop. She hurtled RIGHT over Tootsie Train and pirouetted RIGHT around the family of ducks enjoying their swim on the lake.

    But all that poor Toy Soldier could do was march LEFT and RIGHT around the toy shop all night. He was exhausted by morning. LEFT! LEFT! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT!

    Finally morning arrived and he could go back to his position on the shelf RIGHT next to the counter but to the LEFT of the rocking horse.

    Maybe some special little boy would come into the shop today, see the Toy Soldier sitting on the shelf RIGHT next to the counter but to the LEFT of the rocking horse and take him home for Christmas. Meanwhile, the Toy Soldier settled down to sleep for the rest of the day dreaming of LEFT! LEFT! LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT!
