The Christmas Party countdown is on!

It’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas so hopefully your Christmas party planning is in full swing and,it’s only the final small details to be tweaked over these next few weeks. If you haven’t organised your annual Christmas get-together, here are a few ideas on how to arrange the perfect company Christmas party.

Keep it out of the office

One of the main rules of holding a successful company Christmas party is that you don’t have the party at the office. If your colleagues are drinking a little wine or nibbling on a canapé at their place of work then they are less inclined to have fun and switch off from the day-to-day and, will inevitably end up discussing work.You can however, have a little bit of work at your Christmas party in the form of a branded Christmas gift. Why not a promotional mug or branded pen set to say thank you to your esteemed colleagues for all of their hard work?

Go for a festive lunch

Christmas parties tend to be evening affairs with lots of alcohol consumption and some dodgy dancing from someone in the accounts team. Sounds like fun but, if you want a smaller, more civilized affair, why not head out for a lunch with your colleagues and lap up the turkey with all the trimmings and be back in the office in the afternoon?

Change your setting every year.

Whatever you typically do, change it each year. You can get more and more inventive with each party. You could host a bowling party, a disco, afternoon tea or a wine tasting event with lots of nibbles all around the theme of Christmas.Top off your party with a branded gift bag of goodies for each employee.

Invite the family

Christmas parties are always more enjoyable when the family are invited along too. It means no-one is left out and your colleagues are more likely to come if they can bring a Wife, Father or Sister to accompany them. It’s also a great way for your fellow workers to meet some of your family and get to know you a little better.

Add some yuletide games

Games are a great way to break the ice at a Christmas party. You could play ‘decorate the christmas tree’ and whoever’s is best wins a prize or, you could giveaway some branded games as a gift to your colleagues for working so hard all year round. Take a look at bmt Promotions branded Chocolate games for gifts for your employees this festive season.

Whatever you decide to do this year, or next, add a little promotional gift for your colleagues as a thank you for all theirefforts. Head to bmt Promotions website for a peek at the products we can add your branding too.
