HOW TO HAVE THE BEST ONLINE CHRISTMAS PARTY?
That time of the year is here again when Santa visits us. After a long year, we are ready to get our dancing shoes on and be ready to party!
But since it’s going to be a virtual party this year like the last year, so, how can we enjoy the most? Well, for starters, we can get chocolate candies and T-shirts and wine. Employees could be sent such gifts in advance so that everyone is looking their best and eating and drinking happily in the Christmas VC (Video Call). Here are some ideas for a happening virtual Christmas party
The best gingerbread house!
Everybody can share their own Christmas anecdotes too during this party and how this year had some amazing experiences for them. The gingerbread cookies are also a Christmas tradition when everyone gets such home baked cookies to the office. These cookies can be in the form of a loaf cake or the gingerbread man. Although we are working from home, however, we still have to keep our traditions. Well everyone can be asked to create their gingerbread man or houses and during the call they can show them. The one who has baked the most perfect looking gingerbread must get an award like a shopping voucher. There can be a poll organized during the call itself to vote for the best gingerbread festive delight. A virtual Christmas party is an important occasion to build camaraderie among the team members, so ensure that no one misses them by sending an invitation email. You can also include a poll in this email where you can suggest some virtual party ideas like a game and ask employees to vote. The most voted idea gets implemented during the party. If the employees don’t want to bake gingerbread houses, make sure that they buy prebaked ones, and whosoever has the most decorated house wins.
Guessing the Christmas song!
An awesome virtual Christmas party game idea is playing dumb charades during the call and asking employees to guess the name of the Xmas movie. You can also play portions of Christmas songs and making employees tell the name. The employee who answers the most questions correctly can be given award such a free streaming service for a year.
The goofiest Christmas jumper!
The jumper competition is also delightful when everyone can wear their favorite Christmas sweaters displaying the Santa Claus or the Xmas tree. Wearing the red, green and white Xmas sweaters is a part of our childhood festive memories.
Making employees prepare cocktails
Christmas is also about helping employees enjoy some cocktails, so make sure that you hire a professional bartender who can teach your staff to prepare cranberry sparklers. The guests can also be helped in shopping for the ingredients for such drinks through E-gift cards.
There are some specific Christmas credit cards which can be used for online shopping only during that duration. They are only applicable at certain Christmas drinks, food and gifts store. So, send such virtual cards to your employees in email, and they would be munching on their favorite cuisine during the Christmas party and will be thankful to you. The best part is that such cards are applicable for all sorts of food delivery options, including dietary meals too. You can even design the credit card including the company logo on it and reinforce the brand.
