5 Ideas for Planning a Great Holiday Party

Event Marketing

Nov 06, 2019

Holiday Party PlanningHaven’t planned your business’s office holiday party yet? Don’t panic! With the help of our experienced and flexible event marketing professionals, any integrated marketer can bring their holiday party to life. Below are five celebration concepts that our team can help you organize for an event that will have your staff talking long after the party is over.

Get Outta There

Holiday dinners can be costly and challenging with venue rentals and holiday schedules—especially if you are planning at the last minute. Instead, consider opting for something unusual and outside the norm. What about an interactive game where your team must work together (teambuilding!) to escape a locked room? Even if the room itself isn’t holiday-themed, it can be customized for your team—an ugly holiday sweater escape room, perhaps?

Take a Different Approach

Maybe you’d like to add another special daytime event to the schedule. We can work with you to design a special afternoon surprise. Bring in cupcakes, have a sundae party or host a holiday happy hour right in the office. In addition to offering a welcome break and a tasty treat, employees will appreciate your thoughtfulness during the year-end crunch.

Level Up Your Gift Exchange

Many offices at this time of year will coordinate a Secret Santa or white elephant gift exchange. Your team, though, could take this to the next level if resources and budget allow by providing a special gift for each person on your staff. Team swag is always a good option, and we can help you find just the right promotional item. Alternatively, if your company prides itself on work/life balance for employees, bring in a couple of chair massagers for an afternoon, or give everyone tickets/passes to local events, a live show or the movies.

Give Back

For a more meaningful holiday gathering, arrange for your team to volunteer with a local charity such as a soup kitchen, children’s hospital or by adopting a local family from your community. Not only will the charity be grateful to have so many extra hands available, but the experience will stay with your staff long after the event ends.

Recognize Outstanding Work

A holiday party is a great time to celebrate your team’s accomplishments from throughout the year. Marketers can work closely with executive staff to determine what individuals or teams should receive recognition for their work above and beyond completing assignments or meeting customer needs. We can work with you to select and produce custom awards, plaques or trophies that you can distribute for a beautiful, lasting memory.

If you’re still not sure about what type of holiday party or gift best suits your business and team, give us a call. We’re happy to help you figure out the best type of event and any accompanying materials that will make the holidays memorable for your hard-working team.
