Best Zoom Christmas Party Ideas You Should Try Out

Ber-months for us Pinoys means that the holidays have started and that the party circuit is open for business! Whether it’s a big or group, a merry celebration always has the following recipe for success: Food, music, games, and a lot of cheer.

The tricky part is translating all that to the virtual space for far-flung friends and family to enjoy. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a fun and festive list of virtual Christmas party ideas to help you plan a great Zoom party. Read on to see what we’ve got cooking.

 

1. HAVE A FESTIVE COOKING CONTEST

We did tell you we had something cooking. Everybody likes to brag about their lola’s adobo but do they even know what’s in adobo? This is the year to find out. Set the stage for a free-for-all cook-off this Christmas by selecting a cooking tutorial (or several) for everyone to follow. The winner is decided by a single metric: Insta-worthy results.

 

2. ENJOY A THEMED GROUP WORKOUT

If you’d prefer a healthier alternative to the holiday cooking contest, you can always make working out the main event. Pick your workout of choice, send everyone festive hats, and make sure all cameras are on as you power your way through reps set to Christmas music.

 

3. CURATE A JOINT HOLIDAY PLAYLIST

Speaking of music, what’s Christmas without the tunes? Reach a new level of closeness with your friends and family as you build your ideal holiday playlist together. Our sage advice for couples in long distance relationships: The only thing more intimate than a joint bank account is a joint playlist.


4. BE DELIGHTED BY
MANITO/MANITA

The local answer to Secret Santa, Manito/Manita plays up our love for the holidays and the gifts that come along with the season. Take your gift exchanges online to make the process as smooth as silk, and claim those plus points from your fam for being techie!


5. HAVE A
BELEN SPEED BUILD BATTLE

Want a more challenging virtual Christmas party idea? Be inspired by Lego Master Builders as you and your friends attempt to build the best belen you can within 5 minutes. This online activity will be one to remember as no materials are off the table, and creativity is very much encouraged. The only rule is not to use a ready-made belen!


6. DIGITISE YOUR BOARD GAME EXPERIENCE

If you’re looking for even more chaos, check out this digital library of games that include newly-cemented classics such as Codenames, Avalon, and Secret Hitler. The site includes game play rules and instructions–the only real challenge is making sure no one cheats!


7. HOST A SELFIE SCAVENGER HUNT

Ever wonder what kind of items your friends and family have secreted away in their rooms? This is the perfect way to find out. Compile a list of at-home things and situations your party goers will need to take selfies of themselves with, and make sure to make it exciting!


8. MARATHON YOUR CHOICE OF HOLIDAY FLICKS

From the classic Miracle on 34th Street to the pop culture giant Die Hard, now is the time to start a Christmas tradition to pass on. For a bevy of free holiday-themed flicks, check out tubiTV.
