These little circles of holiday magic aren't just pretty; they're packed with history! Originating from ancient Rome, wreaths were all about resilience in the face of winter's wrath. Fast forward to today, and they're a universal symbol of the season. To give your office that irresistible Christmas charm, start hanging wreaths on doors, walls, and any cosy corner you can find. Choose the classic evergreen wreaths, decked out with red bows and ornaments for that timeless look. Or, if you're feeling fancy, go all out with metallic accents and twinkling lights for a modern twist. And here's the cherry on top: those circular wreaths symbolise unity and eternity, making them the perfect fit for your workplace during the holiday season. They'll wrap your office in warmth and welcome, reminding everyone of the rich history and pure joy of this festive time.

Adding Christmas stockings to your office decor is a great way to sprinkle some of that Christmas magic around the office. 

Whether they dangle from cubicle walls, office chairs, or even have their own designated 'stocking station,' they become symbols of generosity and goodwill, turning your office into a merry, heartwarming haven during this joyous season.

Daily Countdown

Everyone loves a good advent calendar, they can significantly increase festive spirit and build a sense of anticipation among colleagues. You can go for the traditional  advent calendar, which consists of a physical calendar with numbered doors, each concealing a small surprise or treat. As each day of December unfolds, employees can come together to unlock a new door, creating a delightful and communal experience. 

Or you could embrace technology and give this time-honoured tradition a modern twist with Advent Calendar Online. Their digital advent calendar easily integrates into the digital workplace allowing employees to click on virtual doors via their computers, mobiles or tablets instead of physical doors, revealing daily festive surprises. 

A great benefit if your company allows for remote working. It's a fantastic way to combine the allure of tradition with the ease of the digital age, fostering a sense of unity and holiday cheer throughout the office. So, whether it's a traditional Advent calendar or a digital adaptation, the daily countdown can undoubtedly make the office feel more festive and bring colleagues closer together during the holiday season.
