Tips for Awesome Office Parties with the Best Employee Gift Ideas
While a theme or a reason makes virtual office parties more exciting, it isn’t always a must. You can call in for a virtual party as and when your team is ready for it, and that could be any day!
Here are some tips and gift ideas to make your virtual office party enjoyable for everyone!
1. Bluetooth speakers and wireless earphones for the dance party
What better way to light up the tired evenings after work than with a crazy dance party? Virtually, of course.
Today, virtual dances are no longer a new idea; they help employees bond and let go of stress. Just ensure that their gifts of Bluetooth speakers and wireless earphones reach them before the party. The Humbird speakers also sound great for a dance face-off.
2. Enjoy a trivia game with soothing coffee
Who doesn’t like a refreshing coffee sip? Well, most of us do! Let one of you be the master of games and plan the game questions. Let your team enjoy the game with the Peerless Coffee or the Frida Coffee Blend Medium Roast. And yes, add to the gift box a stylish coffee mug or the Keepcup reusable coffee cups.
But if tea is what gets your team’s brain working, make sure you’ve got it covered as well! Gift them the refreshing Par Avion Tea or the Tea Forte!
Add to the merry with a fierce competition! It would be one when the winners stand a chance to win a surprise gift or a gift of their choice (an automated gifting chatbot can help you out with that)!
3. Clear the ground for a fantastic party with pre-party wellness gifts
Let the excitement shine through the roof! Send some wellness products to get your remote team ready for a party mood well in advance. How about a hot and cold massager to relieve the built-up stress and to be party-ready? Or they can pamper themselves with the Serenity Spa Tower and get refreshed and rejuvenated to enjoy their fun time!
An athlete recovery kit also could be just right that can be pretty useful after the party gets over. It can help recover the muscle tears after a fantabulous party! Or better, your employees could as well pick their own gifts without any extra hassle for you.
4. Add cheer to your parties with cocktail mixing
Celebratory occasions call for a drink. Cheering your teammate’s achievement or your team hitting the target with a drink is a great idea, even if it is virtually. But why stop there? Add some extra delight with cocktail mixing fun!
The TeroForma Alcohol and spirits cocktail pack will be great to add to your employee gift ideas as it makes mixing delicious cocktails at home easy and quick. There is also the TeroForma Wine Cocktail Pack for wine enthusiasts!
Each team member can try their recipe for the best cocktail, or it could be a recipe from one which others can try (a great trust-building activity, isn’t it?). The cocktail packs from Eva make cocktail-making super easy!
5. Capture the revelry forever with amazing photos and videos
Even if it is easy to take photos and make videos with your phones, an additional tool for photos is always welcome when selfies are mandatory for all occasions!
If you are thinking of the perfect employee gifts for virtual parties, then the Apexel-6 in 1 phone camera lens kit is an amazing gift as it helps enhance photography. Then there is the quintessential selfie stick like the Apexel anti-shaking stabilizer selfie stick and tripod. Also, no matter how easy it is to store the moments on our phone or computer, there is still the need to place them in a nice photo frame on our table. So, give your employees all the more reasons to print their photos with a cool photo printer. It makes it easy to print photos from their smartphones and also their social media.
These tools can be perfect for selfie contests if you’re hosting a themed costume party. Well, one of you has to be the judge and make the right, well, thrilling decision and announce the winner!
6. A party for families, with families, sounds cool
