It has been said before—a company is nothing without its employees. No matter what your corporate workspace consists of, be it a small coworking space or a multi-tiered, international company filled with employees from around the globe, showing your appreciation during the holiday season is important. You want to show you see them and you care, far beyond just paying their salary.
Skip those tried and true gifts that scream last-minute and impersonal, and instead splurge on special gifts that let your employees know you truly care.
Here, six ways to show your appreciation this holiday season:
Wine from Vinebox
Not sure what type of wine to get someone? Not a problem. Vinebox allows the receiver to personalize their selection themselves. Flights of wine are selected in simple, unique bottles delivered directly to their doorstep. Your employees will think of you, and feel appreciated, as they unwind with a glass of their new favorite vino after work.
Customized Bottle Opener from Artificer Wood Works
Keeping in the theme of wine and spirits, a handmade, wall-mounted bottle opener from Artificer Wood Works is just the ticket for expressing your appreciation. All of their items are handcrafted in Missouri and make excellent high-end corporate holiday gifts. For each item you purchase, a tree is planted.
Insulated Coffee Mug from HydroFlask
Hydroflask makes double-walled, vacuum insulated mugs that come in a variety of sizes and colors, with a lifetime warranty to boot. Bonus: they’ll help to cut down on our plastic use! We call that a win.
A Healthy Dose of Caffeine
Keeping with the theme of coffee, why not give a gift card to a local favorite coffee shop or a whole bean coffee subscription?
A Sleek Desk Organizer Set
Help create a workspace that’s organized, streamlined, and gorgeous. It’s a fun, updated approach to an organization system that will encourage orderliness–a must for any efficient workspace. We love this set from Anthropologie, in beautiful rose-gold that will complement any workspace.
Gift them Portable Power from Goal Zero
You want corporate gifts to be useful, not just pretty. Gift your employees a portable charger they can use to power smartphones or tablets while out and about. It’s just about as useful as a gift can be.
Bonus Time Off
Giving an unexpected bonus day or two of time off is perhaps the most undervalued holiday gift one can give. Showing that you understand that there is far more to life than just work and sleep, you’ll give employees the encouragement to take care of their mental health by checking out of work and enjoying their time as they please. Just make sure and try to give this without any stipulations—this is their time, to be taken when they choose.
