Not everyone wants to work during the Christmas season! With that said, you can bring a little bit of the holiday spirit into your workplace by planning a wonderful work Christmas party. These are a few great ideas for a seasonal party.
An Ugly Christmas Jumper Party
A lot of the jumpers that people wear during Christmas parties are downright garish. Why not have some fun with that by encouraging everyone in your workplace to wear the ugliest jumper that they can find? People will have a lot of fun dressing up, and they’ll love seeing their co-workers put on a silly jumper.
This is an easy way to make an otherwise drab day at the office feel a lot more fun. People can purchase an ugly Christmas jumper, wear something they already have, or even decorate an old jumper so that they have something to wear to the party.
This is often referred to as the season of giving. Your employees might be a little bit more excited about coming into work if they know that they have some sort of present waiting for them. There are many different ways to handle a gift exchange. Secret Santa is a common option for offices, but there are other types of gift exchanges as well.
If you do decide to have a gift exchange, you may want to avoid making participation mandatory. For many people funds can be tight during this time of year. Alternatively, you can host a gift exchange with a strict cost limit so that no one is tempted to spend money they don’t have.
There are so many Christmas songs that people love to sing. It used to be a tradition to go from one door to the next, singing Christmas songs to the people that you saw. At your work Christmas party, you can have all of the fun of carolling while still staying indoors.
Karaoke machines are fairly affordable to purchase, and you can also hire a machine like this for a fairly small fee. Since everyone knows the words to popular Christmas songs, everyone will be able to contribute and sing something.
There are so many amazing work Christmas party ideas that are worth considering. If you’re going to be planning a party, and you don’t know where to start, you’ll want to take these simple suggestions into consideration. Make sure your work party is a big hit!
