Ideas for your Office Holiday Party

Ideas for your Office Holiday Party

With the holidays just around the corner, that means office parties are creeping up as well!

With so much going on in December, planning an office holiday party can be a daunting task on your to-do list. We’re here to help you get those idea wheels spinning so you can plan an event that will end the year on a high note and leave employees reminiscing.

Let’s dive right into it!

Here are some of our favorite tips and activities for celebrating the holidays at the office bash.

Don’t forget to add some festive fun

While your whole party doesn’t have to be Santa Clause and elf-themed, it is fun to have a few lively games or prizes! Bring in the seasonal cheer with one or two of these holiday-themed activities.

  • “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all the hear…” Can you name that movie? Play a trivia game featuring all of the classic holiday movies. Winner gets to take home a prize!
  • Dedicate a corner to holiday crafts, such as decorating a gingerbread house or cookies or making ornaments for the tree. You could even have someone come in to teach everyone how to make an evergreen wreath or another festive craft.
  • Embrace the winter weather! The air might be frigid and the days might be shorter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy being outside during this season. Take everyone sledding, have a horse-drawn sleigh take people for a ride around the block, or go ice skating.


Get into the spirit of giving

Get into the spirit of giving

Your employees work hard for you throughout the year. One way to show your appreciation is by giving them a gift that says you value their contributions and hard work. Gift cards to a nice restaurant, tickets to a game, or a certificate for a spa day are some ideas to get you thinking. You could even have a couple of options for your employees to choose from so they get a gift that they will love and use.


Don’t forget about the photo booth

One of the best ways to ensure everyone remembers the night is by incorporating a photo booth. Gather up all your Christmas decorations and props and everyone will be lining up for a snap with their coworkers!


Cater a feast

One of the best parts of the holiday season is all the food and seasonal treats. Spoil your employees with a delicious dinner and some classic holiday desserts. Sitting with coworkers and eating good food gives everyone a chance to bond, discuss their holiday plans, and get to know each other in a more casual setting. Don’t forget to have festive music playing in the background and seasonal decorations on the table!


Serve together

The holidays are a perfect time to think about other people and give back to your community. You could host a sub-for-Santa throughout the month of December and talk about the families who received the donations at the holiday party or have a corner of the party dedicated to some sort of festive service activity. Whatever you choose, it will be sure to enhance the spirit and a sense of community.
