Meaningful Gift Ideas for Your Employees This Christmas
As the owner of a small business or the boss in charge of a team of people, you want to make sure that your employees feel valued this holiday season. Many companies will give some form of Christmas bonus, which is always a great way to help support the people who work for you through the extra expenses of the festivities, but you are looking to give them something a little extra to let them know just how much you appreciate them and make them feel valued.
With that in mind, here are five ideas of how to make their holiday even more special this year.
- Something the whole family can enjoy
One great idea to consider is getting your employee Disney On Ice tickets because this way, you are actively thinking of your employees family and will be a meaningful gesture because you will be showing you remember about their children and interests.
Using a reputable ticket site for this is the right move because it will mean you can potentially get some deals, and you can buy the tickets together for multiple workers.
- Freshen up their office space
A simple gift to have as an addition to the Christmas bonus is to bulk buy some beautiful indoor office plants so that every member of staff can have one on their desks throughout the year.
Having indoor plants in an office helps improve air quality, gives your employees something to nurture, and can make the office come to life even in the winter months.
- A simple gift to stimulate the mind
A truly meaningful idea is to get each person you employ a book. While book tokens are great and give the person the freedom to choose, an excellent idea is to have a good think about the person you’re buying for and what genre or style of story they might enjoy.
Start by having a look through some of the best reads of 2018 and make a little shopping list for yourself.
While it may not be an official gift, let your employees have some extra time to spend with their families by ensuring they have an extra day off or, at least, a few days where they can leave the office a few hours early to prepare for the festive time
- A festive party
The final idea for how you can give back to your employees is giving them a perfect chance to let their hair down and organize an office Christmas party. There is loads of advice online on how to plan the best Christmas party this year, but here are a few tips to get you started:
- Set a budget but don’t be tight as this is a time for the people you employ to let their hair down and celebrate their successes in the year that has just past
- Pay attention to the details and make sure the place looks great
- Be organized and make sure everyone RSVP’s a good few weeks in advance
