With Christmas nearly here, it’s time to plan your holiday festivities. But for a lot of families, this year’s celebrations will look a bit different, as many people plan to host their Christmas festivities virtually.
If you’re putting together a virtual Christmas party this year, there are a few tips you should know beforehand. With these suggestions, you can make your celebration a bit more special and enjoy a fun-filled holiday with friends and family.
It’s never easy to find a time that works for all of your inviteesbut your Christmas party will be at its best when you have as many loved ones together as possible. When throwing a virtual party, set a firm start time for your party-goers. Encourage your guests to drop by when they can but be sure to outline when you plan on opening gifts or toasting your friends and family.
Every good party should have some fun and games involved — and virtual parties are no exception. While you probably won’t be able to plan any complicated games there are some simple activities to play with your guests. For example, trivia, charades and bingo are all easy to pull off over Zoom and will keep your invitees entertained.
Even though you can’t be together in-person, you can still ship your friends and family gifts to open during your virtual Christmas party. Since you’ll be sending your Christmas presents from afar, you might find it easier to send group gifts or get some help from a third party to despatch the perfect gift to everyone on your list.
