Gift Exchange Ideas for Your Office Holiday Party

Get In The Giving Spirit With These Fun Options

As business owners, you have likely seen your fair share of awkward Secret Santa exchanges. You want to keep the holiday merry and bright, but too many nervous givers or disappointed receivers can trim down the seasonal spirit. To make sure the giving portion of your next holiday party is fun and easy for your employees (and yourself!), consider using these unique gift exchange ideas:

  1. Charity Cheer: Set a dollar limit and make sure each employee is okay with contributing that amount to the gift exchange this year. Then, have each employee write the name of his or her favorite charity on a slip of paper and put it in a bowl. Have each person draw the name of a charity that they will give a donation in the set dollar amount. You avoid the common exchange of kitsch and offer your team a chance to give back this holiday season.
  2. Mug Mingling: How many employees do you see coming in with a coffee or tea to nurse in the morning? Most of them, probably. Consider encouraging the giving of a gift everyone will use by mandating that mugs be the present of the season.
  3. Auction Action: If you know your creative team will want to have the chance to express themselves fully with their gift, make the only parameter a price limit. Rather than doing a traditional exchange, though, set up an auction. Give each employee a certain number of points, and let the highest bidder go home with their desired gift (added bonus: someone may end up with an item they actuallywanted!).
