Fun and flirty ideas for Valentine’s Day in the office
Valentine's Day can be a fun and festive occasion for coworkers, hearkening back to the days of elementary school Valentine swaps. We've reached the time of year when drugstore shelves are stocked with candy hearts, florists are extending holiday discounts and lovebirds are making plans to wow their partners for the biggest date night of the year. If your office wants to get in on the fun this month, here are some creative ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with your team:
1. Secret Cupid Swap. We're all familiar with the anonymous Santa swap that's a staple of December office celebrations, but you can apply the same rules to a February gift exchange. Set a price limit and allow coworkers to select a name from a hat. To make things interesting, present an opportunity for participants to "steal" gifts until the day is over.
2. Valentine's mailboxes for staff. Set a half hour aside for your team members to decorate their own mailboxes in honor of Valentine's Day. By displaying them for coworkers to place cute notes on February 13 (Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday this year) everyone can express their admiration and gratitude.
3. Chocolate potluck. That's a mouthful to say three times fast, but inviting coworkers to bake decadent treats for the office on Valentine's Day can put everyone in the holiday spirit. By now, we've all broken our New Year's Resolutions, so bring on the sweets.
As a note of caution, remember to keep Valentine's Day professional. Keep it light, and don't overburden employees with activities. And contact us at On Point Executive Center when your company looks for office space in Tampa.
