Virtual Christmas party ideas

1. Video Christmas party invitations

If you’re planning a virtual Christmas party, you’ll need to send potential attendees to a meeting room link on Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Share the holiday spirit this December by sending a magical virtual Christmas party invitation video. Just personalize a ready-to-use video template and send your video invite directly to their smartphone or share it on social media. 

2. Christmas eve virtual call party

Set up your laptop, tablet, or smartphone to be together virtually this Christmas eve. Throw on your favorite pair of festive pajamas, eat some classic holiday treats, share memorable past holidays and stories, and cheers to another magical Christmas eve, no matter where you are. With our slideshow video templates, you can create an entertaining addition to your Christmas eve call.

3. Name that Christmas tune

How well do you know Christmas songs? A little friendly competition is a great way to get your entire group to laugh, sing, and enjoy the holiday season. On a Zoom party or virtual call, your host can play snippets of classic Christmas songs on YouTube, and guests can try to guess the tune. You can even create teams and prizes for the winners. You can screen record your competition to watch it in the future.

4. Virtual Christmas gift exchange

Secret Santa and white elephant are Christmas classics, but they usually require you to exchange gifts in person. This year, send an e-gift or post your present in the mail, and have your recipient record themselves opening your gift, showing them enjoying it. You can use your smartphone or our online webcam recorder to film for free, then edit your snippet into a fun Christmas video.
