Thanksgiving Turkey Programs are easy!


If your organization has a history with giving frozen turkeys to employees for the holidays, or even if you’re a new company looking to do something along these lines, a turkey gift program is easy to implement!

What’s a Turkey Gift Program?

There is longstanding tradition in employers providing their hardworking employees with the centerpiece of a holiday meal: turkey! But now, it’s quick and easy and no need to order heavy frozen birds. With gThankYou, you can order gift certificates for employees (local or around the country) and we do all the heavy lifting.

What are the Steps to Plan a Thanksgiving Turkey Gift Program?

  1. Count your employees! Be sure to include any contractors, partners, board members, and other stakeholders who you’d like to thank for their involvement.
  2. Know your budget. Before you proceed, it’s helpful to know what you are willing to spend for each person. This will help expedite your order and keep your finance team happy.
  3. Consider if your turkey gift certificates will stand alone (which is perfect on its own) or if it will be part of a larger gift. gThankYou provides personalized gratitude cards (see our catalog here) FREE and we also have a great turkey cookbook available for FREE, too! (Download here or below!)
  4. We also recommend writing a Thanksgiving letter that illustrates your gratitude for their contributions and hard work. Need help? Check out this resource here.
  5. Call us! We will walk you through the very simple ordering process and the timeline.
  6. We will handle all the printing and mailing for you!
  7. Enjoy the smiles and thanks from recipients who are relieved, appreciated, and excited!
