While we may not be able to deck the halls together in person, we can still hang out and have a great time virtually. You don’t need to postpone your annual Christmas merriment. Just take some of our virtual Christmas party ideas while you stay merry and bright!
🎄 Christmas Party Prep
You may be a computer wizard, but keep in mind that your Aunt Mary might not be. Set up some time to connect with each person attending the party to see if they need help setting up the video platform or have other questions.
Even with preparations ahead of time, be prepared for little things to crop up. Don’t let it stress you. Flow with things, try to keep it light, and have a backup plan.
💻 Top Video Chat Platforms
You are probably a pro at chat programs and video chats, but just in case you need some help, we can recommend three excellent platforms. Whether you choose to use a computer or phone (or both!), these platforms can make hosting a Christmas part a memorable event.
- You can connect with up to 50 people.
- Download via Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
- You can use your computer’s browser and webcam.
- Connect with up to 100 people on the free version.
- You can share your screen. A pretty cool option for playing games.
- Check out the video below to learn more.
- Download the app or use your computer’s browser.
- Set up a Thanksgiving community server.
- People can pop in and out, share photos, and much more!

🎁 Creative Christmas Party Invitations
Once you’ve chosen the video chat platform you’ll be using, it’s time to send out the invitations to your guests. Be sure to include the theme of the party on the invitation and include any other important information.
🍪 Yummy Christmas Party Snacks
We know! Part of the fun of a holiday party is getting to indulge in delicious treats. A virtual party does not have to be any different.
🏆 Virtual Christmas Bingo
We’ve created a pretty cool Christmas Bingo template that you can use during your party. The first person to mark five squares in a row is the winner. Consider offering Amazon gift cards to the winners.
🕵️♀️ Christmas Scavenger Hunt
Want to get everyone moving and create opportunities for laughter? Try a Christmas scavenger hunt. Set a time limit for each hunt and have a plan to break tie check-ins should people arrive back at the same time.
