Christmas is a time for the team to come together

For workplace teams, the Office Christmas Party has traditionally served this purpose, becoming an important date in the calendar for many companies. We can all picture the scene – fancy meals in party hats, secret Santas, and embarrassing dance moves to our favourite festive tunes!

But in the age of remote and hybrid teams, many organisations are searching for new alternatives.

While it might not be possible to gather in one place, a festive celebration can still provide an ideal way to come together, have fun, and celebrate your shared achievements as you head into the new year. 

We have a range of creative party ideas to bring your whole team together this Christmas.

Here are 7 tips on how to host an unforgettable virtual Christmas party

2. Organize a Gingerbread Making Championships

Explore your creative side this Christmas with a Gingerbread Making Championship!

We organised one for our team last year, with hilarious results! 

Send each of your virtual guests a DIY gingerbread house kit – check out this guide for some tips on where to find them.

Ask everyone to create a Christmas-themed gingerbread house before the party, ready for a big unveiling and prize-giving ceremony during the event! Collect photos of their creations, ready to share with all party guests during the video call.

Next, voting begins! We spiced things up by running a series of categories, including BEST gingerbread house, WORST gingerbread house, and most company-themed creation!

Decide yourselves on what the prizes might be, and get ready for some laughs during the showcase exhibition!

3. Run a Virtual Secret Santa

This Christmas Party classic can go virtual using platforms like Elfster, which has a free Secret Santa generator for online events. 

Elfster will automatically pair a gift giver with a recipient, supplying the recipient’s name and address so the gift givers can send their presents ahead of time. At the party, your guests can show off their secret Santa presents and guess who they came from.

4. The Christmas Card Exchange

Bring on some festive cheer by swapping virtual DIY Christmas cards!

Spice up the exchange with a bit of competition by splitting your guests into small groups and challenging each one to create their own Christmas card using Zoom Whiteboard, Canva, or the trust old Paint!

Give them 15 minutes to design their cards, and once time is up, ask each group to show off their creations.
