We’re sharing our ideas to help you plan a cracker of a remote Christmas celebration!*

Or pay it forward and donate a meal to a charity, at Selesti we support

The Feed

Other ideas… make a homemade gift, regift something, set up a swapshop for books or board games

Get dressed up

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!

Plan a

Christmas Murder Mystery

Other ideas…

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… ;)
