Your employees play a huge and important role in your business’ success. And what better way to show that you appreciate the great work they do for your company than by giving them memorable presents this holiday season. But you wouldn’t want to come across as a predictable boss giving away cash and gift cards. It’s time to shake things up a bit and get something special and unique that will ‘wow’ your employees!
Gift giving is understandably challenging, but you can stop stressing out over what to give your employees this year. Here are 10 clever gift ideas that your employees will love:
1. Desk-friendly plant
A bit of greenery is a refreshing addition to your employees’ desks and the whole office in general. Juniper bonsais and terrariums are excellent gift ideas that can brighten their day.
2. Word stones
Turn simple stones into a great gift idea by customizing them with inspirational words or phrases, such as ‘Believe,’ ‘Laugh,’ and ‘You rock!’ These cute and whimsical word stones also make awesome paper weights.
3. Mug warmer
Mugs – even the personalized ones – won’t likely ‘wow’ your employees anymore. But a mug warmer is something new and interesting that they will like. This heating device can warm coffee, other beverages, and soups, too.
4. Subscription to music sites
Your employees could use a little (or a lot) of entertainment while working. And because music helps boost creativity and productivity, gifting them with a premium subscription to music sites like Spotify is a smart and exciting gift idea.
Your employees will also likely appreciate a new headset that they can use not only for work-related audio and video calls and projects, but also for entertainment.
6. Personalized luggage tag
Luggage tags are classy yet budget-friendly. Choose a leather one and have each tag engraved with your employee’s initials or name. They can put it to good use during one of your future company trips.
7. Customized smart phone case
Everyone owns a smart phone nowadays. Let your employees keep their phones safe by gifting them with unique customized cases. Your effort in finding out what unit they own and their design tastes will certainly make them feel more special.
8. Cheese & crackers board
Your employees will be more excited to host the next house party with a new cheese and crackers serving board. Have each board engraved with your employee’s name or a witty food or party quote and you’ll have a unique gift for them.
If fruitcakes and cookies should be crossed out on your list, but you still want to give your employees tasty holiday treats, then macarons are a great choice. A dozen or two colorful macarons packed in a quaint box is a gift your employees couldn’t resist.
10. Field trip
The gift of experience is always a brilliant gift idea for your employees. If you’re so used to going to karaoke bars, but it’s too late to book a holiday company trip, then why not try an equally fun, exciting, and memorable activity? Let them experience something new like Escape Room Games – a fast-growing group activity worldwide.
These are only 10 smart and unique gift ideas perfect for your hardworking and trustworthy employees. No matter what you choose to give them, make it memorable and something that will truly show that you care and appreciate them.
