Mike and I are both pretty social people, which means our apartment is constantly filled with pre-dinner cocktails and Sunday football. (I joke with my parents that the best way to stock your bar is by being the consummate host). And while we love socializing, I am not much of a bar fly. I love a great dinner and even a great cocktail out. However, I'm much happier having everyone at home and even happier when that means at home, with a glass of wine, playing a board game.
The holidays seem to be the time a year that we really break out the games. I have been known to bring board games in my luggage on more than one vacation. Cranium (my personal favorite) has made appearances in multiple countries. So, in honor of the upcoming holidays, here are a few board games that would make beautiful gifts. I have also included some of my personal favorites below. I would love to know what games you like to play with your friends and family.
