4 company holiday party ideas
- Go on an adventure
- Compete in a game show
- Kick back at the movies
- Make memories with a game night
1. Go on an adventure
Host an outing for your team and invite your most loyal clients too. Take everyone ice skating, sledding or skiing. Outfit attendees with branded cuffed toques to help keep them warm and fanny packs to spread cheer. Employees and clients will feel more connected than ever with their matching gear.
Or stay indoors with an axe-throwing or escape-room competition. Afterwards, head back to the office for food, fun and drinks. And don’t forget holiday gifts for customers and staff. Give everyone a Hot Chocolate Bomb and S’mores Kit to take home. They’ll be warmed inside and out as they remember the night while enjoying their sweet treats.
2. Compete in a game show
Get teammates and clients engaged in a fun battle of wits with a game show-themed holiday trivia night. Load a table with everyday items and ask participants to guess the cost of each. Get everyone cheering with several one-minute challenges, from stacking pennies with one hand to seeing how many needles they can thread in 60 seconds.
For holiday trivia, choose fun topics like naming Santa’s reindeer or naming holiday song lyrics. Play “Who Am I?” where each person has a holiday image taped to their forehead (like an elf or a snowflake) and asks other attendees questions to figure out which character they are. Reward them with corporate holiday giveaways, like Flat Shatterproof Ornaments, fleece jackets, Touch Screen Gloves and reusable zip top food storage bags, as prizes. Recipients will always associate your brand with a lovely night of memories.
3. Kick back at the movies
Transform your office into a movie theater for a relaxed party. They can just kick back and enjoy the movie together. If there’s space, invite people to bring their families. Before deciding on a movie, have your team vote on a few pre-selected options.
Get everyone in the movie mood. Line a table with Trio Popcorn Tins, candy jars and other tasty movie theater snacks. Pop Star Mini Poppers and vacuum tumblers make perfect holiday gifts for customers and staff. Hand them out after the movie so every time clients and employees make popcorn at home or fill up a drink, they’ll think of your organization and how much fun they had at the holiday movie night.
4. Make memories with a game night
Make lasting memories and strengthen bonds with clients and employees with a game night. Invite everyone to the office (or rent a space). Set up 7-in-1 Traditional Game Sets with checkers, chess, cribbage and backgammon so guests can choose their favourite classic game. And place multiple packs of Value Playing Cards with Case on tables so they can play everything from poker to rummy.
A Bean Bag Toss Game is fun for all ages, so it’s perfect for employees and customers with kids. A Giant Tumble Tower Game takes stacking blocks to the next level and tests concentration skills. With a variety of games, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
