Christmas 2020 was probably a bit of a washout when it came to the office party. That means that this year’s office Christmas party has to be something extra special to compensate now that things are finally getting back to normal.
Here are just three fantastic ideas for this year’s work Christmas party to make the festive season one your staff can look forward to.
Chocolate and cocktail making
Two things that inevitably make us think about Christmas are chocolate and cocktails. The two just go hand in hand with the season of good cheer, so what better excuse for a luxury chocolate and cocktail making workshop? Chocoholics will love creating their own Belgian chocolate truffles with vanilla, and everyone can try their hand at mixing three mouth-watering cocktails to round off the evening. There’s no better merry-making activity, and going home with a goody bag of your own hand-made chocolates is no bad thing. It’s hard to think of a more indulgent and fun way to celebrate!
A treasure hunt
Treasure hunts are no longer just for kids, and a Christmas themed GPS treasure hunt can be the perfect way to bring people together for a spot of fun-filled, festive team building. It gets your team out of the office for an afternoon and allows them to try something a little different, including seeing some amazing local landmarks and building up an appetite for a Christmas meal at the other end. With an interactive map and a live scoreboard, a treasure hunt can bring in a little healthy competition too!
For many people, Christmas is all about food! Learning how to make some of those Christmas favourites is a dream for many foodies, from hand-crafting their own mince pies to perfecting those crisp, golden roast potatoes. Cooking workshops can be great fun at this time of year and give your team a chance to rustle up some gorgeous grub. Once they’re done in the kitchen, a chance to sit down together to enjoy the fruits of their labour is a great way to pass an afternoon, and there are all sorts of social, team-building benefits to sharing a meal.
This year, the office Christmas party feels more important than ever before, and your team will no doubt have high expectations. These three activities could make your party all the more special, offering something a little different to the usual canapes and music at a corporate venue.
