Less drunken boss-kissing, just as much fun.

You and your team deserve a Christmas party and a virtual Christmas party is the perfect antidote to the not especially celebratory year that has been 2020. We might not be able to replicate drunkenly kissing the boss under the mistletoe after one too many glasses of mulled wine (you can thank us later!) but a virtual do can bring your team together for some well deserved fun and show your appreciation for everything they’ve done through this testing year.

Here’s some ideas because your staff deserve more than a last minute video call with some tinsel.

Take Christmas dinner to them.

Is it even a Christmas party without food? With the help of a fabulous virtual events platform and an expert virtual party service, you can host a gourmet Christmas dinner for your hardworking team. Food and wine is delivered to the doors of every attendee while they chat in larger groups, or one to one, allowing for the shared experience that only breaking bread together can give.

Embrace their competitive streak.

Got a team that’s more about winning than chilling? Make your virtual Christmas party a games night. Whatever their gaming preference they can let their hair down by getting their brain going – from escape rooms to charades to Monopoly, they’ll be talking about it well into the new year.

Our friends at The Together Works offer a variety of amazing game events for any work party or team building event.

For the brainiacs, a virtual quiz show offers a highly interactive way to unwind. Think Who Wants To Be A Millionaire where your colleagues are the audience, phone a friend and 50/50. Make it a team event by opting for a format like Family Fortunes, complete with sound effects and visuals (prize money not included!)

Gift them a new skill; cocktail making.

This festive fun comes with the added bonus of your colleagues being able to show off at their bubble’s Christmas dinner.

Choose the spirits you’d especially like included, have all the ingredients delivered in advance before being guided through making a selection of cocktails by a professional mixologist like Tom Laws-Campbell of Little Yellow Door. We’d suggest you do all the making before you taste test but, if you prefer to live on the edge, include a plastic cover for any tech to avoid any over enthusiastic shaking incidents!

Karaoke.

We know what you’re thinking but in the land of virtual Christmas parties there is a mute button! To go all out, why not add some backing videos and the option to record any performance so your team has their very own music videos to remember it by?

Bonus: maybe those videos would make a rocking 2021 marketing campaign

Make it magical.

Get into the seasonal spirit with an interactive, virtual magic show. Guests can sit back and be wowed by an amazing magician or opt to be part of the show themselves; maybe they’ll even learn some tricks of their own!

This magical event not only offers your team a chance to unwind and enjoy themselves but provides a talking point for break-out calls after the show itself wraps up. After the magician has disappeared, you have the option to continue the party with smaller group calls or a larger room where everyone can chat.
