The season to be jolly is upon us, and that usually means it’s time for businesses and organizations to plan their annual company holiday parties. But this is 2020 and most businesses are choosing to have virtual holiday celebrations this year. But there are still plenty of ways to keep spirits high and make your party feel personal even if your annual gathering is not in-person. And holiday parties aren’t just about fun – they are a great opportunity to build a greater bond among coworkers, celebrate company culture, and get employees excited about everything they’ve accomplished in 2020. With the right promotional products, you can keep your brand present at your virtual holiday party while adding the necessary physical touch to make employees feel appreciated and in the mood to celebrate. Check out a few of our favorite products along with some fun virtual holiday party ideas so you can keep your employees full of the holiday spirit from the comfort of their homes.
Raise a Glass to Your Team
Keep spirits bright with the perfect addition to any party — food and drinks! After all, a virtual happy hour is still a happy hour. With branded snacks, drink kits and cocktail shakers, you can make sure your employees have everything they need to get the party started. And it’s a great opportunity to make a toast to your team and their hard work. You can also pair these treats with an activity by allowing everyone to share their favorite holiday meal with a recipe exchange, or have a drink show-and-tell, letting their inner bartender shine.
Capture the Moment
While your employees are getting in the holiday spirit over video chat, there’s no better way to capture the moment than with a virtual photo booth. Not only is it an exciting addition for employees, but photos from these virtual events are also shared beyond your company, which is ideal for getting more exposure for your brand. While selfie ring lights and string lights can get them and their space photo-ready, our fun masks and Santa hats are the perfect accessories for group Zoom photos and showing off the holiday fun — along with your logo — on social media platforms. You can also pair them with a fun competition or activity, like a classic ugly sweater contest!
Also, for an at home activity and a party favor that your employees will love, design your own full color puzzle! It’s a unique keepsake that lets them show off your message for years to come.
Being Together Apart
Some quick Google searches can give you plenty of ideas of some online games and team building activities for your employees to enjoy together even on a Zoom meeting or Google Hangout, but by adding the physical element of promotional products, you can make your company party one that they’ll always remember.
