We all love it when we can throw a party and it doesn’t have to cost a lot right?
Check out the brilliant tips we have to save you some moola!

- Wrap gifts for a mystery surprise!
In fact, my own family enjoys a gathering together for a BBQ or a Potluck, especially in the summer! We love to go camping.
What does camp games need?

However, let’s take easy and massive game prize ideas for adults one step further. $2.00 for FREE coffee. Who doesn’t love free coffee right?! If you want to make it Starbucks! I’d go with a $5.00 gift card.
Another inexpensive prize idea is to have individual drink prizes. For example, pick up a 6 or 12 pack of beer depending on guests over 21 and select an assortment.
This could include local beers or beers from other countries that the guys attending the event may have never heard of. It’ll catch their interest for sure!
