Themed Office Christmas Parties - 6 Ideas for a Festive Celebration

It’s the time of year where offices up and down the country are planning their festive celebrations. Whether you want to keep things classic with mince pies and mulled wine, or something more outlandish like a full-on winter wonderland – there are lots of great themed ideas to choose from. In this blog post, we provide 6 ideas for office Christmas parties that will bring your staff and colleagues together in festive cheer.

1. Elf Movie Night What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with a classic Elf movie night? Gather everyone around the large flat-screen TV in the office, dim the lights and get your staff in the festive mood with a bit of Christmas cheer. Why not make things more interesting by turning it into an Elf trivia quiz?

Winter Wonderland Bring the beauty of the winter season to life by transforming your office space into a winter wonderland! Hang twinkling lights around the entrance, decorate every room with fairy lights, and fill the space with fake snow. Add a few snowmen, reindeers and wreaths for an extra touch of magic.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest The ugly Christmas sweater contest is a great way to get everyone in the festive spirit – it’s easy to set up, fun to participate in and can be tailored to fit the size of your office. Have a prize for the ugliest sweater and watch everyone compete for the glory!

Secret Santa Exchange This is one of the most popular Christmas activities in offices today and it’s easy to see why – Secret Santa is an age-old tradition that encourages people from all levels of your organisation to bond together over the festive season. Gather everyone in a large room and draw out names one by one until all participants are paired up with their secret Santa partner.

Holiday-Themed Potluck A potluck is an amazing way for your staff to come together and celebrate the holiday season. Ask each person or team to bring a dish or dessert to the party and let everyone enjoy all of the delicious treats. To make it extra special, ask each participant to bring a dish with a holiday-themed name.

Christmas Karaoke Karaoke is always fun – especially when you have a big office full of people! Set up a karaoke machine in your main hall or break room and prepare to be entertained. If you’re feeling extra festive, you can even create a playlist of holiday classics for everyone to sing along to.

Trivia Quiz Bring the festivities into your office by hosting a holiday trivia quiz! Have teams compete against each other in an exciting battle of wits and see who can answer the most questions correctly. You can even have prizes for the winning team to make it extra special.

Gift Exchange Encourage your staff to exchange gifts with each other and give them something unique to take home. Set a budget limit so no one overspends, and then let everyone pick out their own gift from the pile. This could be anything from a funny mug to a novelty item – the possibilities are endless.
