We’re sharing our ideas to help you plan a cracker of a remote Christmas celebration!*
There are lots of options for food delivery, you could use a service tailored for remote working or support a company that’s local to you. Let everyone choose and pick up the bill!
Or pay it forward and donate a meal to a charity, at Selesti we support
Other ideas… make a homemade gift, regift something, set up a swapshop for books or board games
Instead of sending paper cards, you could be planting trees!
So many games work well on Zoom (or your choice of virtual meeting place!)
Split into teams and get quizzing, some questions to get you started…
At Selesti we also love…
Who am I? Share tales from your lives anonomously and try to work out who wrote them.
Through the keyhole - you know everyone’s zoom backdrop but do you know which house is theirs?
Virtual Bake Off - Taste test your own creation and convince everyone it’s sublime!
Make a celebratory team toast with these drinks ideas:
Our friends at Funkin Cocktails are offering Christmas gift boxes that can be delivered to multiple addresses!
Or send out some ideas before the big day and have everyone get the supplies in beforehand!
Alcohol free and vegan Prosecco at
Book a Christmas cocktail making class for your team
Another idea… challenge everyone to create their own.
Christmas cocktail using whatever they have at home, give it a name and try to persuade everyone it’s a winner!
Ask everyone to vote for the best Christmas movie and host a virtual watch party.
Another idea… send out some microwave popcorn packs to everyone through the post.
Check out the biggest Christmas songs of all time!
Wear your best (or worst!) Christmas Jumpers (and don’t forget Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper day on 11th December!)
We highly recommend reusing last year’s jumpers, buying secondhand or swapping with friends and colleagues!
Other ideas… Pretend it’s prom night and get dressed up to the nines.
Go for fancy dress, pick a Christmas theme or freestyle it!
Challenge everyone to a dress up scavenger hunt - 5 minutes to assemble your most outrageous outfit! Bonus points if it’s christmassy!
Hold an awards ceremony!
Hire an entertainer for a virtual performance, we’d love a magician!
Have a lip sync battle or do Karaoke (ok, to be honest, we’re not sure how this would work on zoom! Might also depend on how successful you were with the Christmas cocktails… ;)
Put party hampers together for everyone and send them out, you could include some of the other ideas above, like cocktail ingredients, meal vouchers, popcorn, bingo cards, christmas snacks, party hats, christmas crackers, mini prosecco bottles for toasting…
Or order a ready made Christmas party hampers!
