Office gift parties build unity
Your employees work hard year round to make you money, so what better way to show them your appreciation by getting them a nice Christmas gift and hosting an office party. You can go simple and just provide time for gift sharing or take it up a notch with a white elephant gift exchange or Secret Santa swap. Anything that you plan will go a long way to build employee unity improve moral. Whether you have men or women working for you, techies or chocoholics, you’re sure to find some great employee gift ideas.
Give a mugful of appreciation
Employees like to be rewarded for their hard work, and if they’re a hot chocolate lover, a personalized mug or thermos with a supply of hot chocolate is a perfect gift idea to warm them on cold, winter nights. Insulated, wintery scene decorated travel mugs are great for the business traveler. These mugs are engraved with an appreciative phrase; they also sport an acrylic wall, stainless steel liner, sip-through lid and chrome trim for an elegant look. How about more chocolate? Two ceramic mugs, packed with mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, along with a mini package of M & M’s is sure to please an employee; couple that with a unique saying on how much they’re appreciated, and you’ve got a winner.
For the Techie in Mind
Anyone who loves Star Trek or Star Wars is a techie, and if your employee works in the technology department for your company, he/she would get a kick out of a “techie” gift. A popular gift idea is a leather iPad 2 case. This case is great because it has a faux suede lining to protect the screen and elastic corner straps to keep the iPad in place. More great employee gift ideas include an elastic pen loop, also useful to hold a stylus or pen. Another cool techie gift is a solar phone charger. These handy devices are specifically tailored for an iPhone or Blackberry. You can also use it for other USB-powered digital devices as well. The charger will hold a charge of 50 hours in the daylight. It also includes a handy carrying strap. Stylus pens are also a great gift idea, as is a cell phone cradle.
Get personal with customized gifts
Who wouldn’t want a personalized Christmas gift from their boss, something tailor-made just for them? A Happy Holidays gift basket, with all their favorite treats, is sure to serve up many smiles. Hot cocoa, coffee and chocolate chip cookies are surrounded by an adorable plush moose guarding a delicious chocolate bar. For the exercise fanatic, giving a pedometer and ear bud gift set, with a holiday greeting, may just hit the spot. Snuggle up with an embroidered plush, micro mink Sherpa blanket with the phrase, “Thanks for all you do,” to keep you toasty warm. Any one of these would make great employee gift ideas.
