The holidays are just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start thinking about what to get everyone on your shopping list. For employers, deciding what to get their employees for holiday gifts can be as difficult as deciding who made this year’s nice list. Luckily, we have you covered. Keep reading for our top five ideas for employee holiday gifts your team will actually enjoy.
Some people may argue that it’s too early to start thinking about the holidays. After all, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. However, when it comes to employee holiday gifts you have to start your game plan early. Nothing is worse than a card with an IOU – especially when you want to show your team how much you appreciate their hard work. So, don’t get caught empty-handed due to a lack of planning.
Getting an early start on picking your employee holiday gifts will also ensure that you give thought to what your employees will appreciate. Don’t be the boss who gives paperweights and generic gift cards. Be a cool boss. We can help. Here are our top picks:
1. Tailored Totes
Never underestimate the importance of a quality tote bag. Beach day? Tote. Shopping spree? Tote. Gym bag? Tote. Weekend Getaway? Tote. A way to sneak in more snacks into a movie? Tote. (Kidding…definitely kidding.) Seriously, a high-quality tote bag with a custom design is both a thoughtful and useful gift your employees will be sure to reach for on many occasions.
2. Cozy Quarter-Zips and Hoodies
Winter is coming. Keep your employees warm with a cool new hoodie or quarter zip to sport all season long. You can use this as an opportunity to show off your branding or come up with a custom design that includes a reference or message your team will connect with.
3. Noteworthy Notebooks
Even though so many people have gone paperless, don’t rule out this option for your employee holiday gift. Sometimes there’s nothing like taking pen to paper and the act has been shown to help aid the creative process and promote information retention. Give employees a customized notebook for their best ideas or at least their grocery lists.
4. Custom Caps
Embroidered baseball caps are a popular choice that your employees will love. If you are buying for a big team hats are great since it’s a unisex option and you don’t have to track down or guess the sizes you’ll need. For some extra pizazz and use puff embroidery to make your design pop.
5. Stylish Sippers
Help your employees make their morning gingerbread latte more sustainable in more ways than one. A Corksicle or Yeti will keep beverages hot longer and will help keep disposable cups out of landfills. Bonus points for an aesthetically pleasing design. We love employee holiday gifts where form meets function.
