Have you started thinking about your office Christmas party yet?
If this isn’t your first season as the chosen party planner then you will know its never to early to start the Christmas party process. From venue bookings to sourcing entertainment, it often feels like we have just finished last years before its time to start thinking about the next!
However, the importance of coming together this Christmas is greater than ever before. The COVID 19 pandemic has been hard on us all, both personally and professionally. We have had to adapt the way we work and for some that has meant working from home. Although this has had its perks, (no more commuting! More time with family!) it can also be quite isolating.
Coming together as a team at Christmas is a great way to reconnect with your colleagues and build morale. It’s a chance to let your hair down, have some fun and celebrate all that you have achieved over the past year – despite the challenges!
So what are some fun ideas for your office Christmas party that will have everyone talking until the new year?
Whether you are looking for something virtual, in person or perhaps something a little more low-key, never fear because we have you sorted this Christmas. No matter what style of event you are interested in, your team size, budget or vision, we have the perfect Christmas programs just for you!
Ready? Lets do it!
Virtual Christmas Party Ideas
Getting the team together in person not an option? Well that doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy the festive season together!
This just in! Toys have been mysteriously disappearing from across the North Pole, threatening to ruin Christmas for thousands of good little boys and girls. With Christmas right around the corner, Santa has called in your team of detectives to help solve the mystery of the disappearing toys.
Can be delievred as:
In Person | Hybrid | Virtual
Virtual Cellar Door
Whether you’re all about red or prefer a crisp white, we have the perfect drop to excite your team and suit their unique tastes. But this is no ordinary tasting, oh no, because this is done completely and utterly online, meaning your whole team, no matter where they are located can participate.
Shake It Up
Do you consider yourself as a bit of a cocktail connoisseur?
Not sure if you like your martini shaken or stirred? Want to really WOW your colleagues at your Christmas party with learning expert mixologist skills? If you answered YES to any of the above, this is the program for you!
In Person Christmas Team Building
Ready to take on a traditional Christmas team building program? Well please, step this way! These programs have been purposely designed to maximise the Christmas spirt, deliver on key team building outcomes AND bring the year to a close with a whole lot of fun (and a little competitive edge too).
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Santa is gearing up to deliver toys to millions of children around the world… But oh no! Santa’s sleigh has gone missing! Embrace the spirit of Christmas and take part in the epic adventure that is ‘Hunt for Santa’s Sleigh’.
It’s Christmas time and it’s time to celebrate the festive season with a little friendly competition. Tasked with completing a series of short and sweet games, teams will need to dig deep and use skills they didn’t even know they had if they want to become the Christmas champions!
Christmas Cracker Jack
It’s time to dust off your flat white shoes and dress to impress in your best Christmas costume as you prepare to take aim at the jack. Combining the exciting game of lawn bowls, beautiful summer weather, good people, plenty of festive cheer and of course a few fun challenges along the way!
Charity Christmas Team Building
No matter what cause you are passionate about, we are here to help you support them through delivering a fun and engaging charitable Christmas team building program that not only delivers on all your desired team building outcomes, but also helps your team give back.
Santa for a Day
Grab your best elf hat; it’s time to help Santa this Christmas! Don’t worry you won’t need to find a reindeer or slide down a chimney, but you will need to work together to fill your Santa Sack with lots of toys to be donated to children who need it most this Christmas.
Add a Christmas Twist:
Consider starting this program at your office and finishing at a function venue (‘Santa’s workshop’) where the celebrations can continue with a glorious Christmas feast. The playful spin on this program transforms to heartwarming with presentations and a visit from the recipient charity at the conclusion of this event.
In every real adult a child is hidden that wants to play! Make sure you channel your inner child for this uplifting program that will see participants battle it out to build the most Legendary LEGO structure. The playful spin on this program transforms to heart-warming when the finished models are donated to a children’s charity of choice.
Add a Christmas Twist:
Truly embrace your inner child and have everyone come dressed as what they wanted to be when they grew up! Incorporate this program into a magical fun filled themed Christmas cocktail party to really add some WOW.
GIve a Dog a Home
Each team’s goal in Give A Dog A Home is to design, build and present an award-winning dog kennel from scratch.
The ultimate reward in this team building program with a difference is the donation of these new kennels to an animal charity for dogs in need of shelter, including a visit from some friendly canines.
Add a Christmas Twist:
This program presents the perfect opportunity to get your team outdoors and enjoy some fresh air. Why not couple this fun team activity with a Christmas picnic or BBQ in the park and make the most of the wonderful summer sunshine.
Bikes for Tykes
One of the most powerful charity team building programs in Australia is Bikes For Tykes – the original charity bike building program.
Teams work through a series of activities with the overall goal to build a bike from scratch and put a smile on an underprivileged child’s face.
Add a Christmas Twist:
Why not add some cheer to your pre dinner drinks and incorporate a Bike Build? Guaranteed to get your group in the festive spirit this short, sharp and dynamic program is the perfect opening to kick off any Christmas celebration.
Whilst the power lies in the giving to others less fortunate in the community, these team events also focus on the participants learning, understanding and appreciating more about each other and working in unison towards a significant goal. Why not try something a little different for your Christmas function this year and not only impact your workplace but your wider community as well.
Well there you have it… whether your group is on the adventurous side, after something more relaxed and low-key or looking to give back this festive season with a charity focused program there are plenty of options available for groups of all ages, sizes, fitness levels and budgets.
