1. Choose A Theme

Choosing a theme is crucial in creating a memorable Christmas party and it can also add a bit of fun to the night. Embrace a theme that could resonate with your team, such as The Roaring 20s or an Enchanted Winter Wonderland theme. At Gilded Bee, as well as our bespoke party gift sets, our winter wreath- and bauble-making activities are customisable to your event, incorporating materials tailored to your brand and corporate colours.

2. Create An Inclusive Atmosphere

Ensure everyone feels included by, for example, providing a variety of drink options. For non-drinkers or designated drivers, offer alternatives like juice, soft drinks or mocktails. At Gilded Bee, we love including Seedlip as a delightful gin alternative and Noughty as a sustainable, non-alcoholic fizz in our hampers.

3. Music And Other Forms Of Entertainment

Playing music at a Christmas party is a great ice breaker - choose a playlist that is suitable to your business. The best parties also seem to strike the right balance between structured activities (like our wreath- and bauble-making workshops) and ample free time for guests to mingle. Organised activities are brilliant at encouraging greater interaction between guests, but be careful not to have too many and force fun.

4. Host A Festive Competition

Who doesn’t love a little bit of competition? You can also encourage collaboration and creativity with challenges like gingerbread house decorating. Provide a mix of traditional and unexpected decorations, and come up with different categories like Most Creative, Most Delicious-Looking, Largest Structure and Most Festive. We love to indulge in gingerbread at Gilded Bee which is why we include Eddington's gingerbread house making kit in our Christmas in a Box party gift hamper!

5. Traditional Party Games

Bring a touch of classic charm to your ultimate work Christmas party with timeless games like Charades. This engaging activity not only serves as a fantastic icebreaker but also proves perfect for introducing colleagues who may not be familiar with one another. Our go-to is Ridley's Games Room's Classic Charades, one of my favourites in our Christmas party gift hampers!

6. Set Up A Hot Chocolate Bar

Ditch the cocktails and embrace the warmth of a soul-soothing hot chocolate for the ultimate Christmas party drink. Elevate your office celebration by making a hot chocolate station the focal point, turning the ritual of preparation into a festive experience. A must-have in our clients' Christmas hampers, Love Cocoa's smooth and creamy hot chocolate flakes add the perfect touch of indulgence!
