Corporate Children’s Christmas Parties

Corporate Children's Christmas Parties
I know we are just entering October but it’s mad how quickly Christmas creeps up on us (and is pushed upon us). Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of Christmas and the fun and excitement that goes with it. Having a 4 and 5 year old certainly adds to the magic of Christmas.

This week, I was in my local supermarket and my four year old pulled me to see something….. the first Selection Box of the year! (I can guarantee, last year’s selection boxes are well gone in our house before the new year began!) My daughter reminded me that Santa brought her one. For a second I thought ‘surely I didn’t let Santa leave MORE chocolate for my children on Christmas Day’ and then I remembered that she got one when Santa visited a weekly club she attends, so I said, ‘Yes, you’re right, you got that at ….club’ to which she replied, ‘and when he visited our estate’. She was right, she received two selection boxes from Santa last year and her sister received three! I’ve nothing against selection boxes  but I do have a problem when my children start to think that it’s normal to eat chocolate every day and I know I’m not the only parent who feels strongly about this.

So, if you’re organising a Christmas party this year whether for a business or an organisation, can I help you think outside the ‘Selection box’ and tell Santa to bring an alternative gift for the children? I know many Christmas parties work on tight budgets but there are certainly fun stuff that Santa can bring that cost about the same price as a selection box, will last longer and won’t result in obesity and rotten teeth! So, I’ve made a small list under 3 categories – €3 or less, €5 and €10.

Santa Gifts that cost €10

If Santa is visiting the boys and girls in a club or society (like the GAA), he usually just brings something small. But often businesses have Christmas parties for their staff’s children and when this happens, he tends to be more generous. Here are a list of toys that cost just €10

I’m really excited about the upcoming Christmas season and although I appeared a bit disgruntled about the number of selection boxes my girls received last year – the reality is that I ate most of the chocolate (and they were too young to notice!), so I can’t really complain about that!

Enjoy the run up to the season and I hope, if you are organising a children’s Christmas Party, that this little blog will have given you some inspiration. If you are organising a corporate Christmas party for children and your budget is bigger than €10 per gift, I stock lots of more expensive toys, games, crafts and kits so please browse my website or send me a message and I can try and help you select toys that will work best for you.
