Virtual Gift Packages
The holidays are a great time to remind your team that you appreciate their hard work. Send an assortment of virtual goodies their way as an excellent way to say thank you. You can’t go wrong with perennial favorites like coffee shop or bookshop gift cards.
Virtual Holiday Dress-up
Everyone gather ‘round the Zoom meeting, it’s time to show off your fashion sense! Invite your team to show off their best ugly sweaters, dress up in costume as their favorite holiday characters, or create homemade holiday t-shirts. You can even turn it into a contest and award small prizes to the winner.
Virtual Secret Santa
This holiday tradition gets everyone in on the gift-giving spirit. First, secretly assign everyone on your team another member of the team that they’ll be getting a gift. Make sure everyone mails their gift to the designated recipient in time for the holidays (You can help them out by paying for shipping costs). Then, designate some time at the holiday party for everyone to discover who their Secret Santa was, open their gifts, and show off what their coworkers got them.
It’s cold outside, so warm up with some home-made cocktails. Spend some time catching up with coworkers while mixing up the best holiday-themed drinks under the supervision of a talented mixology expert. We’ll send you all the ingredients you’ll need to shake and stir your way to a good time.
In this virtual holiday party game, teams have 45 minutes to carefully construct their gingerbread masterpieces and present them to our judges before they decide on the top three properties and, ultimately, one winner. The person with the most votes will be the winner, but everyone else will still get to enjoy the sweet reward of eating their hard work!
And just because it’s a virtual Christmas this year doesn’t mean it will be any less festive. For more ideas on how to boost team morale during every season of the year, check out these other virtual team building activity ideas:
