Why your company should throw a virtual Christmas party

As we head towards the conclusion of what's been an incredibly difficult year, there’s a further blow that employees are facing, the work Christmas party being cancelled.

But, just because we can't meet up face to face doesn't mean we can't have fun during the festive party season. Thanks to a host of incredible suppliers, virtual events are more inventive and interactive than ever, and they're the perfect pick me up for your team!

Here's a few reasons why you should be organising a virtual Christmas Party for your company this year.

There are some incredible virtual party options

Think beyond the Zoom quizzes we all got bored of over the summer! Some great virtual options will get your team together to celebrate all that’s brilliant about Christmas parties; food, drink and enjoying each other’s company.

Interactive cook-alongs with some of the best chefs in the country, cocktail classes with master mixologists or wreath-making classes with one the UK’s top florists are just some of the incredible options available through Feast It. Read on for more details about our Christmas party alternatives, and place an enquiry here.

It's not as complicated as you think

You might think shipping meal or cocktail kits to your team's homes is logistically difficult, but the reality is it couldn't be easier. Most kits can be delivered nationally, some internationally, while Feast It's curated suppliers will ensure everything arrives on time for the big day. All you have to do is pass on your team's addresses!

You'll boost team morale

It's no surprise that employee morale isn't exactly high right now. A recent survey by Hubble showed that 75% of workers dislike the lack of social interaction that comes from working from home, and a virtual Christmas party is a great chance to get some spirit back into your team!

A virtual event is cheaper than a regular Christmas party

Christmas party spending reached a record high in 2019, with companies spending an average of just over £100 on each employee. With a virtual event, you can book incredible classes, hampers or gourmet meal kits for significantly less.

With options like cheese and wine pairings from £25 per head, personalised Christmas hampers at £45 per head and cocktail classes for £35 per head, virtual events are not only great fun, they’re more cost-effective than a regular Christmas party.

You’ll support independent businesses

The pandemic has heavily impacted the event sector, including the fiercely independent suppliers we partner with. Booking your virtual Christmas party with Feast It will help secure their future into 2021 and beyond.

Less can go wrong…

Let’s face it, with a virtual event it’s far less likely that controversial moments are going to occur at the Christmas party this year. So bosses and photocopiers relax...
