One thing I love to plan, as you already know, is a party. Sometimes when you own a small business, throwing your employee holiday party may feel like a chore rather than a joy. The key to a successful holiday season is to always make a game plan. Start with a theme.
In some cases, coming up with the right theme can get tricky. Let’s face it: when you work together everyday, you already know everything about each other right? So picking a theme can seem daunting. Using the custom banners, and prizes from Staples Copy and Print can lighten the load and make your employee holiday soiree a big hit.
As an expert at parties, I am here to tell you that I have the perfect plan for you. I suggest a holiday cookie bake off, a contest of sorts. Have all your employees bring their favorite cookie recipe: their own concoction or even a family recipe. It’s fun to share the holiday memories of the cookie recipe, and a great way to engage all of the people in your firm in an entirely new way. Plus, a little friendly competition is good for the office holiday spirit, especially when cookies are involved.
You can provide is some festive decor and a few prizes, and you will find an amazing array of selections on Staples Copy and Print, like this custom banner.
Make sure everyone brings their prize winning cookies along with the recipe and encourage story telling about the cookie recipe at the holiday gathering. Then, best cookie recipe voting can take place at the party. You can award personalized awards like this great polo with the phrase “smart cookie” embroidered on it.
I love these custom hats especially made for the winners, or you can even use them for your entire staff as a holiday gift. It’s a great way to celebrate. Take it from me: organizing an activity for your employees for your holiday party is the way to go, and you can get everything you need in one place. Be a smart cookie and shop Staples Copy & Print.
Staples Copy & Print helps small businesses make customer and employee appreciation happen with custom gifts.
