It’s never too early to start thinking about the C word! Christmas prizes and incentives are a brilliant way to engage, inspire and drive sales during the festive period. Our team have Yuletide down to a tee and can help you organise the ultimate Christmas prize for your winners.

Here are our top five festive favourites for 2019 to help you spread the holiday cheer, whatever the budget.

1. Meet Santa in Lapland and Stay in a Glass Igloo 

What could possibly be better than jetting off to Lapland to meet the big man himself? One of our most popular incentives, year in, year out. Get cosy in a glass-domed igloo, the perfect place to spot the Northern Lights, and explore Santa’s stomping ground as you dash through the snow on a husky sled ride. With hot drinks round the fire, as well as a private dinner with Santa, it’s an unforgettable trip that the entire family will enjoy!

If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to Lapland, we can keep it local. From festive trips to some of Britain’s best grottos to a fun-filled day with Santa at Lapland UK and pantomimes.

Want to try something different and step away from the traditional Christmas giveaways? Why not give prize winners the chance to swap the cold weather for a special Christmas celebration in Oz? With all the usual festive traditions like carols and Christmas trees, but with warm sunny weather and Christmas Day BBQ’s on the beach, it’s a cracker of a place to jazz up the usual festivities. Extend the trip to include New Year’s Eve too, and your winners could experience one of the most spectacular firework displays in the world over Sydney Harbour!

3. Celebrate Christmas in a Luxury Cottage with a Private Chef to Cook Christmas Dinner 

Why not take the stress out of Christmas by whisking one lucky winning family away to a luxury country cottage for the festive period. Available UK-wide, we can make the experience even more special by organising a private chef to rustle up a festive feast on Christmas Day. Guaranteed to take care of everything – from turkey and sprouts through to mince pies and figgy pudding – this gourmet expert will leave your winners with more time for family fun, and less time slaving over a hot stove!

Treat your prize winners to a festive trip to London this Christmas. From soaking in a hot tub by the Thames with mulled wine on tap at Winterland Alpine Club, to taking a spin on Europe’s only rooftop ice rink, there’s no shortage of joyous activities in the capital. Add to the magic by including a delicious raclette dinner in a rink-side igloo overlooking the twinkling city skyline or a cheese fondue feast in a cosy log cabin. Looking to enhance the experience? We can arrange front row seats to West End musicals, personal shopping on Oxford Street, gingerbread house making masterclasses and even afternoon tea with Father Christmas at Hamleys!

Christmas prize trips don’t need to break the bank; a budget-stretching weekend break in London is always one of our most popular festive prizes.

5. Christmas Shopping in New York 

Always a firm favourite. New York at Christmas is one of the most magical prize destinations in the world.

See the Rockettes perform at Radio City Music Hall; strap on your skates at the Rockefeller Center; make a head-start on your Christmas shopping on Fifth Avenue; and visit Santa at Macy’s!

Great for families and couples alike, add a dash of festive magic to your December incentives with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to this magical prize destination.
