Studies show that 6 out of 10 Americans think they’re good gift-givers.
About 76% of Americans plan on buying gifts for others this holiday season. Do you want everyone in your office to recognize your gift-giving excellence? Your coworkers will appreciate a fun work outing more than any other gift.
Throwing an office holiday outing is the perfect way to bond with the people you work with. It’ll give you a chance to interact with them in a festive setting.
Here are five work outing ideas that will complete your holiday season:
1. Hit The City
What could be better than a city outing with your team? All you have to do is pick a city/date, decide what you want to do, and then rent a supercoach bus.
Your team will feel like rockstars as they ride around town in a supercoach or limo. The best part about these services is that they can pick you up from anywhere, take you where you need to go, and get you back safely. These companies have to vet their drivers, so you know that you’ll be in good hands.
2. Holiday Happy Hour
Happy hour is one of the most popular office party ideas because it involves alcohol. Plus, it gives you the chance to be with your coworkers in a more casual setting.
Pick a venue that offers non-alcoholic beverage options and food as well. Otherwise, this outing will alienate coworkers who don’t drink.
Most bars are fine, but if you’re feeling classy, book a tasting room at a vineyard for your office party. While you’re at it, encourage everyone to dress up in holiday-themed clothes to increase the holiday spirit.
3. Attend a Holiday Show
Holiday shows are a wonderful way to get in the holiday mood. That’s why going to see one makes for a good office holiday party.
You and your coworkers could go to see a performance of The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol. Check out your local theaters to learn more about their holiday performances.
4. Take a Class
If you’re looking for small office ideas, consider booking a class for you and your colleagues to take together. You can take a class on cooking, improv, dancing, making candy, or anything else your heart desires.
Take all of your coworkers’ physical limitations into consideration before scheduling a class, especially one that requires a lot of physical activity.
Volunteering involves giving back to the community, so it’s a great holiday celebration option. You and your coworkers could volunteer at a soup kitchen or anywhere else your help is needed.
When you’re brainstorming holiday party ideas, consider ones that involve some form of charity. For example, your office could throw a gift drive or fundraiser for children in need.
