With company holiday party planning in full swing, we decided to share some of our trade secrets. Looking for ideas for this year's company virtual holiday party? Look no further. We've got your back!

So, you want to make your company's virtual holiday party truly special? You want to make your team feel stimulated, appreciated, and celebrated? Well, never fear, our ideas are here, and they will ensure you have a totally original, fun, and engaging party that your whole team will love!

Here are our top 3 ideas to make your virtual holiday party amazing: 

1. Try an interactive class.

Too many virtual parties are not well organized or coordinated. They can feel boring, pointless, and meandering. But it doesn't take much to add some energy and life to your company holiday party.

Organizing an interactive class is an amazing way to get participants more involved, and to do something novel and fun. And it can be almost anything! From a very special Rockettes dance class, to live carolers, to holiday-themed cooking classes where ingredients are shipped directly to your employees' door, these classes are sure to bring your virtual holiday party to the next level.

2. Focus on personal connections.

Teams that thrive — culturally and professionally — have a strong foundation of trust, understanding, and camaraderie. That's why it's so important that your company holiday party emphasizes the importance of personal connections, especially for virtual events.

We love how team-building games not only give participants something fun to do, but also how well they bring the company together to connect beyond just the day-to-day work. Even if you're just doing something silly like a virtual holiday scavenger hunt, trivia, or solving a mystery of 'Who Stole the Presents?' games add both the holiday AND team spirit you're looking for!

3. Lean into the holiday spirit... with gift boxes.

You know what really feels like the holidays? You know what really feels thoughtful and special? When your employees receive a special package, a gift sent directly to their doors. We love pairing our virtual experiences with a special in-person touch, like curated boxes that stimulate every sense, so your team feels fully immersed in the experience. From pine scented candles to hot cocoa to special wool socks, a gift box doesn't have to be expensive to elevate the event — and the special moments with your team.
