5 Unique Holiday Party Ideas To Engage Your Employees

Some of us have become apathetic with parties on Zoom and Hangouts – trying to spice things up with a quiz just isn’t cutting it anymore. So, our creative elves here at Pluto have had their thinking hats on, creating unique ideas for 2020 to bring the festive spirit online through virtual events this year.

1. Mistletoe, Mayhem & Murder


We all love a good game of Murder Mystery – getting dressed up, playing the role of a lifetime for one night only and trying to determine who among you has committed a murder!

Why not make it a Christmas-spirited murder mystery and find out who killed Santa!

This can really be brought to life with the addition of external actors playing virtually with employees and of course a host running the shoe. Employees can be given a brief for their own costume search or sent out costume props ahead of time.

2. Comedy & Music:

Irish Music & Comedy gigs are synonymous with Christmas. Irish performers such as Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey, Tommy Tiernan and P.J. Gallagher all have gigs on around Christmas and this year should be no different – enjoy 2020’s gig from the comfort of your own home with friends and family and have an experience like no other.

Create a bespoke night of music and comedy for your employees to enjoy live, from their sitting rooms.

3. Wine & Cheese Workshop

Nothing gives us the Holiday feels like a good Wine & Cheese night.
Facilitated by a top sommelier and cheese expert, this 45-minute virtual session will advise colleagues on the best grape and cheese pairings.

An interactive session, guests will be sent out packs with the variety of wines and cheeses ahead of the night and asked for their feedback throughout the session.

4. Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah)

…is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.
This year why not send your team Hygge in a box – candles, herbal teas, a blanket, and a book to cosy up with.

This is just one of the many At Home Pack options we have here at Pluto. Touch base with us to discuss other special deliveries to your employees.

5. CSR

Christmas is a time to give back and giving together always feels better 😊
We have so many ideas for Christmas 2020 with a charity component – when giving back this Christmas make it fun for all involved.

We can host a live Christmas Game Show with charity prize funds so employees are playing for their chosen charity.

A Christmas Present Wrapping and Crafting workshop is a fun and engaging Christmas activity that can include wrapping a present for someone in need this Christmas.

Give us a call today with your  Holiday requirements and we will tailor a bespoke idea and package for you.
