When Ned said, ‘Winter is coming,’ we immediately thought of snuggling into our blankets, eagerly waiting for the season to arrive and swipe us off our feet. Even if it’s done and dusted, a little re-run of the favourite scenes won’t take up the entire winter!
But for employees and staff, ‘Winter is Coming’ has an altogether different expectation of going on that trip, the team had planned for days and their employer finally giving them the green signal to get going!
And if you and your team need help with eventful ideas, worry not. In this article below, I have curated a list of 7 fun morale-building team-building activities to do this Christmas in Virginia Beach.
1. Secret Santa Gift Exchange
This classic Christmas activity is a great way to get everyone involved and feeling festive. Draw names and exchange gifts with your teammates.
Here’s how it works: each person draws a name from a hat (or online generator). They then have to buy a gift for the person whose name they drew, without letting that person know who they are.
On the day of the exchange, everyone reveals their gifts and tries to guess who their Secret Santa is. It’s a great way to have fun and get to know your coworkers better.
So if you’re looking for something different to do this Christmas, give a ‘Secret Santa Gift Exchange’ a try. You might just have the best time of your year.
It helps you to mingle with your team and understand them to gift them anything remotely meaningful.
2. Santa’s Scavenger Hunt
A festive scavenger hunt is perfect for getting everyone in the holiday spirit! Team up and see who can find all the items on Santa’s list first. Ideal for groups of all sizes and can be customized to fit your budget.
To play, simply hide a series of objects around your office or workspace that relate to Christmas. Then, give your team a list of clues that will lead them to the hidden objects.
The first team to find all of the objects wins! Not only is this activity a great way to build team morale, but it’s also an excellent opportunity for some competitive fun.
So what are you waiting for? Get started on your Santa’s Scavenger Hunt today!

Several activities can be done in Virginia Beach. Right from adventure sports to beach activities or going for a one-day trip. If you are not from Virginia Beach, then a one-day trip to the beach with your team can be fantastic!
Some cruises and tours take you on a ride with gourmet food and drinks. Or if you want a relaxing holiday, you can simply soak in the sun by the beach. Hiking is also a great way to get your team bonding!

Beach activities include adventure sports other than chilling under the stars.
You can play beach volleyball either on the beach or at sports centers providing sand courts.
Other activities include kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, parasailing, boat rides, jet skiing, fishing, camping and many more.
Adventure sports help bond people and face fears, and communication is the key to survival in unknown places.
