Some ideas for a holiday party include a make-your-own food station and an ugly sweater contest. One idea for giving back to the community is to request donations to a local charity instead of having a gift exchange between employees.
Some ideas for a make-your-own food station include a taco bar, nacho bar or a gingerbread man creation table. Holding an ugly sweater contest keep the party environment light and fun, and inviting clients to it can show off the office's sense of humor. If there was a recent natural disaster or an accident, the office can donate or bring in gifts for victims.
