It’s that time of the year when everyone’s excited to attend Christmas parties! Although this time, it’s probably virtual just as last year. However, having a virtual Christmas party is better than having none at all.
When someone attends a Christmas party, may it be a part of corporate events or with your family and friends, it’s important that everyone will have a great time. One of the things that will make the participants happy is having great prizes because they will do their best to win every single game.
However, since the party is virtual, it’s more convenient if the prizes and souvenirs can be claimed through online platforms. So whether you’re part of the preparation team or just one of the participants who wish to win great prizes, you should check the list below!
Want to attract a lot of participants to your games? One of the best ways to do it is to offer money as your prize. Money can easily be transferred so it’s not a problem when it comes to distributing to winners.
In addition, with money as the prize, your participants can spend it based on their needs. Basically, nothing can go wrong when you give away money. Meanwhile, the downside of this prize is that the money should be big enough. If not, then it’s better if you just convert the money into coupons.
2. Gift cards for food or clothes
Isn’t it fun to redeem a prize based on what the winners like? Then you should give them gift cards! Nowadays, there are stores where you can buy online gift cards so you can just email them to the winners.
The winners can claim their prizes whenever they like (well, some of them have expiry dates so you should still check) online or at physical stores.
If your Christmas party is one of your corporate events, then you can give your participants some gift cards from your company (just in case you’re offering goods).
3. Gift certificates for services
When it comes to services, you can still arrange gift certificates. Some of the popular GCs are for a gym membership, spa, skincare, and hair treatments. Even if the winners haven’t been to the gym or haven’t had a facial for a long time, the gift certificates will encourage them to try them.
It doesn’t have to be a month or a year subscription. Even if it’s just for a day, your participants will still appreciate it. Besides, you can just split the prizes so that more participants can join more games.
4. Event tickets
Who wouldn’t want to win event tickets? And just to be safe, you can give away tickets to online events like concerts or movie premiers. That way, your participants won’t have to go out especially when they’re minimising personal contact with other people.
Meanwhile, you can also check if your area is already free from the pandemic so that you can include get-away tickets or amusement parks. Don’t forget to add extra tickets so that some of their family or friends can join them.
5. Free dinner
A dinner for two in a luxurious restaurant would be a great first prize! Besides, food is one of the prises that anyone would gladly accept. Let your co-worker or friend enjoy an amazing evening with a companion by giving them a free dinner.
When choosing a restaurant, make sure that the ratings are high, and that they can serve a variety of meals. It’s better to have a lot of options since you wouldn’t know if they’re allergic or something.
6. Product giveaway
Does your company produce products that you can give to your employees? Then don’t hesitate to include these products as prizes. You might have done it in the past corporate events so it’s not a bad idea to do it again.
If you don’t offer products, you can gather some sponsors or even tap your sister companies. That way, you’ll also be able to promote the said products.
7. Online subscription
Who wouldn’t want a free month of free subscription of anything online? Getting premium is just a bliss that anyone would sincerely appreciate. It’s like a hug since you won’t have to pay for a certain time but will still have access to your favourite website.
On the other hand, those who currently don’t have subscriptions online will have the chance to try. It may be a good start for them to continue subscribing even after the free months you’ve given.
Now that you have enough idea on what prizes to include in your Christmas party games, all you need to do is choose. Let us know which of the abovementioned prizes is your favourite by leaving a comment below!
