Top 5 Ideas for the Perfect Night In!

Top 5 Ideas for the Perfect Night In!

The festive season is the perfect time to host a night in.  Escape the chilly winter cold and gather your friends or family for an evening of quality time together!  

At Party Packs, we love to celebrate. But throwing a party doesn't always have to mean a big venue with lots of people! A get together at home is sometimes a much better way of really catching up and enjoying each others company. Invite your nearest and dearest round for an evening of fun and entertainment. If you're looking for ways to host a gathering at home, we've got something for everyone, from hen party ideas and pamper parties to action packed games nights for the family and more.

Here's a countdown of our top 5 nights in!


Games Night


A games night is a classic for a night in. With something for all age groups, entertain the kids, family and embrace your inner child with a fantastic range of puzzles and games to choose from at Party Packs! Board games don't need to be boring- we've got the perfect way to mix up tradition with GIANT games.

Giant Jenga



Create some fun in your living room with this giant tower game. This supersize version of a family favourite is perfect for get togethers at home. Clear a space in the room and stack the wooden blocks up in layers of three then take turns to each carefully pull out a tile and place it on top of the tower until it finally topples over. Just make sure you move anything breakable out of the way and you're good to go! 


Giant Connect 4


Why not entertain the whole family with this Giant Connect 4 Game?! Relive your childhood with a retro classic. Take turns to slot the discs into the frame until someone gets a line of 4. Featured on This Morning as one of Trevor and Simon's best toys for adults!

Pamper Party


Get your cosiest PJ's, fuzziest slippers and dressing gowns on for the ultimate pamper party. A great way to wind down and share time with your closest friends.

Think face masks, relax time, treats and spoiling yourselves!
