The Holiday season is here and it’s a perfect time to show your tenants how grateful you are for them. Gifts for each tenant can get expensive, and giving everyone the same thing can seem impersonal, so how do you celebrate the season and express thanks to those living in your community? A holiday-themed community event may be the perfect option!
Here are a few events that are sure to get your residents in the holiday spirit:
Rent a projector and turn a common area into a makeshift theatre, and voila, you have a perfect holiday movie night! Offer light refreshments like soda and popcorn to make the experience feel even more authentic. Don’t forget to pick an age-appropriate movie if there are lots of children in your community!
*Tip: Let residents vote in advance on what movie to watch!
Patio/Balcony decorating contest:
If you’re concerned about social distancing in the winter months or simply looking to celebrate all month long, a patio/balcony decorating contest is perfect for your tenants! Gather a few tenants or staff members who are willing to be judges, set a date for judging, and let your residents turn your community into a winter wonderland!
*Tip: Decorate public areas of your community to get tenants in the holiday spirit!
Holiday Card-Making Party:
It’s time to get crafty! This is a perfect event for residents of all ages. Schedule an evening where your community can get together in the lobby, clubhouse, or another common area, and create cards for whatever holiday they celebrate during the winter months!
*Tip: Provide most of the supplies, but ask residents to bring something they think will be a great contribution.
Oh, the holidays… it’s the most wonderful time for a beer. That’s how the song goes, right? Either way, many adults enjoy indulging in festive beers with seasonal flavors and it may be the perfect event to bring tenants and staff together!
*Tip: To avoid waste, ask tenants to RSVP in advance!
Add one of these holiday events to your community calendar and your residents will feel appreciated, and when your residents feel appreciated, your retention rates will continue to climb!
