So, you’ve been tasked with throwing this year’s corporate Christmas holiday party.

Whether you have the support of an entire party planning committee, or it’s just you in charge of this, putting together a fun event that even the office Grinch will love can be quite challenging.

That’s because you need to accommodate different tastes and make sure the event feels fresh and different.

To help you stay one step ahead of your guests’ expectations, we’ve compiled a list of exciting holiday party ideas which will have guests happily buzzing for weeks.

Let’s dive right in!

1. Office Scavenger Hunt – with a Holiday Twist

A scavenger hunt is fun and interactive. Not only that, but it’s also the ideal team-builder, as it requires guests to engage in some friendly competition and put their problem-solving skills to the test.

The logistics of planning a scavenger hunt are not overly complicated. You mainly need to create a list of Christmas items for guests to look for and make sure everyone is aware of the guidelines you have in place, such as:

  • what is the designated search area
  • the time limit (how much time do they have to find the items)
  • how will the winner be decided (for example, it can be based on who finds the most items within a certain time limit, or you can have a points system)

Keep things interesting by having guests complete a holiday-themed task for every clue or item found. For example, you could have them wrap a Christmas gift, write a holiday card, dress up Rudolph, and so on.

And don’t forget to have a Santa-approved prize ready for the winner(s).

Suggested Entertainment: Live Magician 

A talented magician is always a Christmas holiday party pleaser – and an excellent fit for a high-energy event that not only aims to entertain but challenges guests as well.

2. Christmas Morning at the Office

Ah… the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning and rushing over to see what glorious gifts await by under the tree.

It’s one of the best feelings in the world, so why not extend the fun with your holiday office party this year?

Put together a scrumptious Christmas brunch at the office and ask guests to dress up for the occasion (Christmas pajamas are not only allowed but recommended).

This is one of those holiday party ideas about sharing delicious food and spreading Christmas cheer – so it’s likely to appeal to a wide array of guests.

However, if you want to take it to the next level and have attendees talk about your event for weeks, consider booking a live music act.

This will help keep the energy up at your party and make it more memorable for guests.

3. Corporate Craftmas

Looking for interactive Christmas holiday party ideas?

As the name suggests, this idea is all about planning an event full of exciting activities that encourage guests to explore their creative sides and get crafty.

Here are a few examples of activities to get inspired:

  • Holiday ornament decorating workshop.

Provide guests with some plain ornaments and crafts supplies (think glitter) and let them go to town. If you want, you can announce a theme (snowy night, North Pole) or just let guests’ inspiration run wild.

  • Cookie bake-off

Nothing beats fresh, homemade cookies, so why not challenge your guests to a cookie bake-off?

Provide necessary ingredients and baking instructions, divide guests into teams and ask them to make their version of the ultimate Christmas cookie. When everyone’s done, you can run a taste test and hold a vote to see who wins for best flavor.
