A Christmas party is a great way to foster relationships and strengthen bonds between staff members of a company. It is also a wonderful way for everyone to let their hair down after a long year of hard work. Everybody looks forward to the end of year Christmas party and these company Christmas party ideas will assist you in organizing an exciting and unique party for your colleagues and staff at work.
Idea #1 – Get Out of the Office
Many companies hold their Christmas party in the office, but then it hardly feels like a party because half of the people simply keep working. The idea is to stop working for the day (or half day) and enjoy yourself. That means organizing a venue away from the office such as a hall.
Idea #2 – Invite Family
Instead of just making it a staff only party, let them invite their family as well. You can encourage people to bring a plate of food to minimize catering costs. Of course, a large company may be able to cover costs of catering for everybody while small businesses can encourage all to pitch in and bring a favorite dish to pass.
Idea #3 – Kris Kringle
The Kris Kringle never gets boring or goes out of fashion. The basic idea is that everybody’s names are written on a separate piece of paper and then shuffled together in a container or hat. Everybody then draws one name out of the hat and that is the person they must buy a Christmas gift for. This arrangement curbs the need to buy a gift for everyone and it also makes it fun in that you are able to personalize your gift idea to the particular person you have drawn from the pool.
These simple company Christmas party ideas will ensure that your party is remembered for many years to come. It does not have to cost a lot of money to hold a party at work – remember that it is all about celebrating Christmas and the end of the working year with your fellow coworkers..
