If you own or manage a business, chances are you’ve been making a list and checking it twice – or four or five times! Determining what to give your employees is a difficult decision this time of year. That’s because you’ve got budget, varying tastes and workplace appropriateness to consider.
Gift Ideas for Employees
Here are a few holiday gifts that always hit a high mark with employees:
They’re small, they’re easy to buy in bulk and they are always appreciated. Gift cards are pretty safe holiday employee gifts. And with stores like Amazon, Best Buy and Target, there’s always something your employee can purchase that he or she will enjoy. Restaurant gift cards or cards good at grocery stores for holiday foods are also great ideas.
The gift of food is always appreciated. There are many ways you can give a holiday dinner, from offering gift cards for groceries to handing over a frozen turkey. Some employers go all out and load up boxes with everything employees will need for a traditional holiday feast; it’s always appreciated.
A delicious, high-end bottle of wine is a great gift for employees. Even if an employee doesn’t drink, chances are, he or she can use it for cooking or for regifting (let’s be honest – it happens!).
With new electronics hitting the market every year, it can be fun for employees to open up a new tablet, smartphone or other device. And if you choose a just-released model, chances are no one will have a duplicate yet!
A Day Off
Your employees might love cash or gift cards, but time is an invaluable gift. An extra day off to use in the coming year will no doubt be appreciated by everyone.
An Incredible Event
The holidays are the perfect time to announce a “gift” like no other; give your employees the gift of an amazing team-building retreat or other corporate event. This is a great way to get them to mark their calendars and prepare for the fun as well.
