It’s always a good idea to spice up your Twitch streams by adding a bit of the festivities. It’s a nice way to break the occasional monotony of things. This holiday, celebrate the season and bring in the cheer with these 10 holiday-themed ideas.
Play games with holiday or winter elements
As a gamer, playing holiday-themed games is a great way to enjoy the season. There are many retro Christmas games if you go the retro way, and MMOs often have winter or Christmas-themed outfits and places.
A simple Christmas hat or knitted sweater can lighten up the mood of your stream. You can even get creative and design it however you want. If you want to make it fancy, there are hats and sweaters that light up and even full-blown costumes.
Add Holiday Twitch Extensions
You can also decorate your video screen with holiday cheer. The Twitch extension Christmas Presents lets you add a Christmas 3D scene to your video. It’s simple to install and lets your audience enjoy a winter wonderland view while you stream.
Decorate your room
If you want to go the extra mile and don’t mind putting some work, you can decorate your actual room, too. A couple of stockings, some fairy lights, and a tiny pine tree can do wonders to your stream set-up.
Music for the mood
The occasional jingling of some bells or instrumental Christmas music can bring some holiday mood to your stream. A jazzy Christmas tune or ringing of sleigh bells can cozy up your viewers.
Mukbang, a popular trend in South Korea, is a kind of video streaming where in the host prepares or eats a meal. Why not take a short break from gaming and treat your viewers to some nice holiday snacks?
Christmas is about giving, and your viewers would definitely appreciate a giveaway. If you have the extra cash to spare, having a giveaway this Christmas is a nice gesture to thank your viewers for sticking around with you this holiday season.
Speaking of extra cash, giving some amount to your preferred charity after doing certain milestones with your audience is a great way to celebrate the season of giving.
Advent Calendar Countdown

Play an activity or game with your viewers
