Corporate holiday gifts are usually gifts that the employer gives to employees and clients to show appreciation for the contribution to the business.
Cash tops the list for for employees, while trips are another great gift idea. A short weekend getaway to an area spa is a real nice to say thank you at the holidays.
No one wants a wreath either, a corporate holiday gifts list should not include any plant life or any use to be a plant gift either. Another bad idea is anything with the corporate logo blazoned across it. Employees do not need another pen with the company name on it. Food baskets are not the worst of the worst as presents to employees but food baskets should be sent to clients, and not given to employees that have helped to build the business throughout the year.
There have been some record breaking corporate gifts recorded over the years. There have been some gifts that were new cars, new homes, and all inclusive vacations to exotic locations. Large amounts of cash also made to the top recorded presents to employees.
Corporate holiday gifts are not only a show of holiday spirit but are also a nod to appreciation for a job well done. They should be well thought out or come in the form of a one size fits all cash gift. It really is the thought that counts and if there is no thought than it does not count.
If your employees have served you well throughout the year, you should reward them for it. Don’t give them anything insulting, like a simple wreath or pen with your company’s logo on it. Instead, give them a nice cash bonus or treat them to a vacation so they can come back to work well rested. If they have kids, consider getting them gifts in addition to your employee as well, to show that you pay attention to their family life.
