Thanksgiving is America’s oldest tradition
Our shared holiday of gratitude, Thanksgiving, has been celebrated for centuries.
Gratitude, hospitality and inclusion are the hallmarks of this uniquely American holiday, celebrated with a feast of turkey shared with family and friends.
For generations, businesses have made it a tradition to give employees a turkey at Thanksgiving. Since the practice began more than a century ago, it’s grown and spread across industries and into workplaces small and large. It’s endured from the industrial age into the digital age.
Sharing a turkey gift at the holidays is meaningful and appreciated by everyone. Plus, it’s smart business. An employee turkey gift communicates your Thanksgiving gratitude to your workplace family for all their hard work and contributions to the success of your organization.

Regular, personalized appreciation accompanied by tokens of gratitude are “proven to motivate employees who then invest more effort and enthusiasm in their work,” according to 15Five.
gThankYou Employee Appreciation Gift Certificates are flexible, practical, meaningful and, best of all, appreciated. Read on for examples of workplace celebrations and other occasions that are perfect for sharing your gratitude and building a happy, motivated and engaged workforce.
gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates simplify the workplace tradition of buying turkeys for employees and preserve the gift’s meaning: gratitude!
For generations, employers have bought turkeys for employees — real, frozen turkeys that weigh up to 25 pounds. It’s an appreciated, well-meaning gesture, but a frozen turkey gift comes with strings attached.
Let’s face it, frozen turkey gifts are not convenient for the giver or the recipient! They’re awkward to store, transport and distribute. And they involve guess-work that’s difficult to know. What if a recipient bikes or takes public transportation, doesn’t have enough freezer space or it’s not the right size or timing for their family?
How can you give the same, meaningful gift with none of the hassles associated with the gift of a frozen turkey? gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates to the rescue! Buying turkeys for employees has never been easier.
Hopefully your boss expresses his or her appreciation for your work regularly. Today is your opportunity to return the favor with a small thank you gift or note for providing the tools that make it easier to do your job well.
Last-minute Thank You gifts for Boss’s Day!
Some employees pull out all the stops to show their bosses appreciation. Milwaukee’s EKG Trucking value their boss, Ed Grober, so much that they had a billboard posted with his picture on it! Most of us though, are not as good about planning ahead.
If you forgot to make or buy a gift, it’s not too late! Use your break or lunch to write a note of thanks. A sincere thank you note and fun card is a wonderful gift anytime.
If you prefer to pick up or make a last-minute thank you gift instead, here are ten easy ideas you can still do and that anyone would appreciate!
Working on Labor Day? Thank your employees! After all, not only are they working while most people have the day off, they do their best for you all year. If your workplace is closed for the holidays, plan ahead to share your Labor Day appreciation.
Labor Day is a perfect opportunity to recognize your hardworking staff’s achievements. Ensure that employees feel appreciated, inspired to be more productive, and more loyal. When you share your appreciation with workers, you build morale and improve employee retention.
If you’re closed on Labor Day, there’s still time to give employees a shoutout beforehand and wish them a happy holiday!
Nothing quite says “thank you” during the holidays like the gift of a Thanksgiving turkey.
It’s the centerpiece to a uniquely American family holiday celebrated by everyone, regardless of religious or cultural background. A turkey isn’t just a delicious bird we eat; it’s a celebration of our shared history, values and family traditions.
As an employee gift, the Thanksgiving turkey is the ultimate symbol of gratitude and one of the easiest, most practical ways you can thank your workforce.
Thanksgiving turkeys are the perfect employee gift to share your workplace appreciation. Turkeys are a symbolic and practical gesture of gratitude at Thanksgiving and have been a beloved workplace tradition going back decades. The holiday gift of a turkey is one that everyone appreciates and enjoys sharing with family and friends.
In the past if you had a large workforce, buying Thanksgiving turkeys for employees and distributing them in a meaningful, timely manner could be nearly impossible to pull off if you haven’t already planned things months in advance. Distributing frozen turkeys means juggling complicated logistics.
You have to figure out:
- What size turkey works for all families
- How to buy large volumes of frozen turkeys
- How to get them to your location
- How to store them
- How to distribute them
- What’s the best timing to distribute them so employees have freezer space
- Do employees need help transporting them home

No matter how many employees you have, gThankYou! makes it easy for you to share the thoughtful gift of a holiday turkey.
Thanksgiving gifts are a perfect way to show your employees how much you appreciate them and that you’re grateful for their work. Why not order gThankYou!

As TrendHunter’s “50 Thanksgiving Gift Ideas” says:
“This holiday is all about spending time with your family and giving thanks for all the blessings you have. What better way to enhance the joy and spirit of Thanksgiving than by surprising everyone with some tokens of appreciation? The most important thing to remember is that whatever your Thanksgiving gift ideas are, they should come from the heart.”
It’s National Boss’s Day (Oct. 16) — a perfect time to celebrate your company leaders’ hard work and dedication!
Good bosses don’t have many role models in pop culture. Bad bosses get all the attention — who can forget dictatorial Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada, boorish micromanager Bill Lumbergh in Office Space, or megalomanic Michael Scott in The Office?
Good bosses are harder to find in movies and on TV, but they do exist and they are inspiring. For comedy, look to Liz Lemon in 30 Rock and Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation. For drama, a great example is Saving Private Ryan‘s Captain John H. Miller (Tom Hanks), who inspired and carried his close-knit unit through Normandy and war-torn France to find Private James Ryan.
These are the bosses who care about the people they manage, who lead for company excellence rather than personal gain, and who stay positive and solution-focused when times get tough.
The best bosses don’t seek praise: They deserve it.
The best bosses in your workplace are likely very self-aware, open to feedback, appreciative of others, and focused on the greater good. An Arizona State University study earlier this year found that the strongest, most effective bosses are humble.
Thanksgiving is the day we set aside to give ‘thanks’, to remember who and what we are grateful for, and to celebrate by feasting with family and good friends. Many employers share the ‘thanks’ of Thanksgiving with employees, giving gifts like a turkey for the holidays or paid time off to spend with family. Some organize potluck lunches to recognize the occasion, while others overlook Thanksgiving altogether and just hold an annual holiday party. However you choose to do it, your employees will be grateful for the appreciation and recognition you can provide.
Glassdoor, an online employer rating and career community, surveyed employees about how appreciated they felt at work, what their work motivations were, and what they really wanted from employers at Thanksgiving. Employees said they’d stay with employers longer and work harder if they felt more appreciated by their bosses. When asked in the survey about Thanksgiving perks they’d appreciate the most, more than half of employees said they’d enjoy not being required to work the day before and after the holiday. Other perks employees would like at Thanksgiving include cash bonuses or a pre-holiday meal at work.
Winter brings thoughts of the upcoming holidays, and the previous year’s achievements and accomplishments in employers and employees both. As we start to plan the new year, it’s an ideal time to reflect on what we are grateful for, and an important opportunity to make sure everyone’s efforts are acknowledged with thanks.
Here are some ideas for putting the “thanks” of Thanksgiving into your workplace:
Say “Thank You”. Recognition and genuine appreciation are important employee motivators and create engagement. Try some creative ways to say thanks.
- Write short notes thanking direct reports for specific work-related actions and efforts and post them on a wall or bulletin board in their work area in the weeks leading up to the holiday. You can even add graphics of Thanksgiving dinner items.
- Present a public thank you and handshake for employees at a team meeting.
- Give gift certificates for Thanksgiving turkeys along with certificates of appreciation for employee contributions.
- Incorporate personal touches like handwritten letters and recalling stories of individual efforts and successes to make workplace gratitude meaningful and memorable.
Treat Them to Lunch. Whether it’s at a fancy restaurant or a catered buffet, saying thank you with a lunch before the holiday gives employees a little respite from their hectic work and personal schedules. Add a little extra time to mingle, or prepare a video or slideshow to watch during the meal. It’s a great way to recount why you appreciate your employees.
Let Everyone Participate. Instead of just a top-down approach to workplace appreciation and gratitude, encourage everyone to express their thanks at work. And, don’t forget about part-timers, interns and even custodial staff. They all appreciate words of thanks and recognition at Thanksgiving time.
Use Technology. Connect everyone to the spirit of Thanksgiving with a page on the company intranet or social media for them to post why they appreciate a boss, a co-worker, a team, a customer, or a vendor. You can also prepare a special “Wall of Thanks” or bulletin board for anyone to post pictures or thank yous.
This Thanksgiving, remember to thank those who work to make your organization profitable and successful. You’ll be glad you did.

Halloween is a fun holiday to celebrate at work and an opportunity to say thanks for teamwork and extra effort. Don’t miss this easy way to show your employee appreciation and create engagement. It’s also the perfect time to make everyone feel good after the fallout from the government shutdown and the economic climate. There are plenty of low or no-cost fun things to do at work to let employees enjoy some Halloween spirit, with costumes topping the list.
About Halloween Costumes at Work
Allowing employees to dress up in costumes at work to celebrate Halloween is fun for everyone, but communicating a few workplace guidelines is always a good idea. Career and work expert and career writer Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter cautions employees about wearing overly sexual or inappropriate costumes to work. She suggests reminding employees to keep the business climate in mind when planning costumes.
Take advantage of Costumes at work by:
- Having a parade around the office (guaranteed to make everyone young at heart again)
- Taking lots of pictures and make a fun collage for later; Perfect fodder for the company blog about how fun it is at your workplace
- Giving out a variety of prizes so lots of people can share in the winning
Halloween Potluck Lunch
Having a potluck lunch for Halloween allows employees to share favorite dishes, be creative and create “spooky” Halloween-themed food, and encourages feelings of camaraderie and kinship. When everyone brings something to share and eat together, employees and supervisors alike benefit from the goodwill and good feelings that having fun together generates.
Get a complete menu and avoid having a table full of chips and cookies by asking people to sign up to bring specific items such as drinks, main entrees, salads, side dishes, and desserts. Keep things organized by writing names on tape on dishes as they come in so no one loses their containers. If you have allergy concerns in the office, then it’s helpful to label dishes too.
Plan a few games at lunch time on Halloween day to add a little lighthearted activity. Don’t plan anything very complicated or time-consuming, but stick to quick, holiday-themed activities such as pumpkin bowling using small pumpkins as bowling balls, a Halloween word search game finding words from the letters in the word Halloween, or a Halloween trivia game. Chances are you’ll have employees who would love the chance to poll colleagues and organize a few games.
Instead of a Party or Potluck
If a full party or potluck is too much for your company, consider hosting a Halloween ice cream social – and use Halloween candy as toppings!
Candy corn, Smarties, crumbled chocolate bars, and other favorites make delicious, festive toppings to celebrate the day with a nod to the tradition of collecting as much candy as possible during Trick-or-Treating. Distribute your own Halloween treats of $5 gThankYou! Ice Cream Gift Certificates so employees can share the fun at home.
Time Off to Trick-or-Treat with Family
Use Halloween as an opportunity to inject a little fun into the workday and let employees enjoy the holiday with colleagues. Be an office hero by allowing employees to leave early to trick-or-treat with family; they will be grateful that you did.
Whatever you plan for Halloween, don’t forget it’s an opportunity to show employee appreciation and build engagement.
