A virtual white elephant team gift experience is always a good time. Get the team together for some classic holiday fun with this gift-giving game and then watch the chaos as the stealing starts. Will they remain friends? Hopefully. No, don’t worry – there’s a facilitator on hand to keep everyone in good cheer, as well as welcome your group, explain the rules, and get the game started. After a fun and fast-paced round of holiday trivia to determine who goes first, the group will take turns virtually unwrapping a group of unusual, quirky gifts. Participants will choose to open a new gift or steal one from their colleagues. And at the end of the game? Each team member will have a virtual gift that will then be mailed to them. Awesome.
The holidays are a natural time for get-togethers, and while that usually means spending time with your friends and family, there’s nothing wrong with bringing that spirit of togetherness to your work crew, too. (As long as you don’t refer to them as a ‘family’. That’s just a bit much.) And sure, we’ve all been asked/told/forced to do something ‘fun’ with our colleagues when the holiday season hits but rest assured: there are ways to do this well. This is where we come in.
We’ve done the hunting for you and we’re confident that if you sign your team up for one of these fun team building events or parties, you’ll have a happy bunch. Plus, the fact that they’re virtual activities means your team can enjoy them just as they would any other holiday activity: vegetating in their PJs while feeling vaguely sick from all the overindulgence. Perfect.
