Your Invitations

Be sure that on the invitations, you assign each guest a specific hour of the day. Because the guest brings a gift that can be used during that time of day.

For your invitations, print out a face of a clock and draw the hands on the clock for the time of day.

You will need to change the time on the clock for each guest.


  • 6:00 am
  • 8:00 am
  • 10:00 am
  • 12:00 pm
  • 2:00 pm
  • 5:00 pm
  • 7:00 pm
  • 10:00 pm

Write the invitation information on the back of the clock face. You will need to explain to your guests that they should bring a gift that corresponds to the time on their invitation.

  • exercise time
  • yard work time
  • cocktail time
  • tv time
  • bath time
  • bed time

When The Guests Arrive

Each guest should put the time of day on the outside of the gift. If they don't, you will need to do that.

As the guests arrive take their gifts and place them in chronological order on a table.
