The Best Holiday Corporate Gifts Provide Value

The Big Book of employee appreciation gift ideasWhen we make gift recommendations to business owners and leaders, we recommend thinking about the sentiment you’re trying to convey. In most cases, giving corporate gifts to employees is a reward or a gesture of gratitude. At gThankYou, we have spent years asking, learning, and watching what works.

Useful gifts: If you’re wondering, “What is a good gift to give employees?” there is one piece of criteria that seems to matter most, its usefulness. In general, people don’t want more junk and they are picky about what corporate-branded materials they are interested in wearing or using. What they really want is something they can use right away. In the case of food gift certificates, people love that they are saving money on meals (or treats), or it gives them an excuse to splurge a little for holidays or another special occasion. Food and money are the ultimate “useful” gifts that are appreciated by anyone. Might we add, a Thanksgiving Turkey or a Chirstmas Ham rank near the top!

Personalized gifts: Anything with some personalization shows that you took the time to think about what would matter to that team member. You can personalize a gift with their name, initials, or a special message. An awesome holiday corporate desk gift is something small and unique that the recipient can place on their desk. Keep in mind, personalization can also simply be a handwritten card highlighting what they’ve done to deserve praise.

Experiences: This is a great way to give your employees something that they will remember for a long time. You can give them tickets to a concert, sporting event, or other local event (consider a fundraising event that’s fun and supports a great cause).

Tech gadgets: This is a good option for employees who are always on the go. Computers, phone, iPads, or tech accessories are highly coveted gifts.

Gifts that support a cause: This is a great way to show your employees that you care about their interests and values. You can donate to a charity in their name or give them a gift that supports a cause that they are passionate about.
