Virtual Christmas Party: 4 Cool Ideas to Celebrate Christmas with Your Remote Team

1. Arrange a Christmas-themed contest

You may hold a competition and encourage collaboration among the staff—another fantastic team-building exercise. Here are some recommendations:

Christmas costume contest

Get your team to come up with the most out-of-the-box Christmas costume ideas. Then, during the virtual party, they can model their outfit.

Ask to decorate their workspace

Encourage your team members to get into the festive spirit by decorating their desks or work areas. The person with the most creative, festive and overall best-looking setups will win a prize.

Online talent show

Giving your employees a virtual stage to show off their versatile non-professional skills, like dancing, singing or on-spot poetry, is a great way to celebrate Christmas with your remote team.

2. Arrange a virtual Secret Santa

Virtual Secret Santa is a Christmas-themed gift exchange where each participant is assigned a recipient to send a gift.

3. Break the ice with Christmas-themed questions

This helps remove any awkwardness that may surface before the Christmas party mood sets in—perfect for remote teams where members might not know each other well.

4. Watch Christmas movies together

Run a poll to determine the movie your team would most like to see this year. Then, choose a day and stream the movie of your choice live using Watch2Gether or a comparable portal.
