Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers, group gifts, or special thank you gift, staff appreciation gifts are one of the best ways to show your team how much you care about them. But it can be hard to think of personalised gift that won’t cost an arm and a leg.
Here are eight simple yet thoughtful staff gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on their faces and show your employees you care, without putting a dent in your wallet!
1) Snack Jar
An old-fashioned candy jar filled with small candies is a fun (and delicious) way to show your appreciation for your employees. It’s a sweet gesture that won’t break your budget—or your will power!
And you can mix it up with a range of your teams’ favourite snacks: don’t just stick to one type of candy or snack, a lot of people enjoy chocolate, gummy bears, and even healthier options like nuts or protein balls. Be creative!
2) Spa Gift Card
This is a great way to give employees a day off without worrying about what they are getting into while they are away from work. The Endota gift card allows employees to decide how they want to spend their time and pamper themselves in whatever way makes them feel most relaxed.
3) Daily Affirmation Cards
Nobody wants to be around a grouch. When employees are happy and feel appreciated, they’re more likely to stick with your company in a down economy. One way you can get them on your side is with daily affirmation cards. Like fortune cookies, these printable cards include random, funny, or uplifting quotes that will have your employees laughing or smiling at least once a day.
4) Yoga Mat
Sometimes, the most thoughtful gift you can give your employees is a fun one. Everyone has heard of getting breakfast in bed for their special day—but how about a yoga mat and an offer to teach them some poses? Yoga is an extremely healthy way to stretch, get away from the computer, and enjoy some time away from work. Yoga mats are inexpensive and easy to pack up for travel or storage. If you run a corporate office, yoga mats make excellent gifts for new hires as well.
5) Bottle of Wine
You can't go wrong with Friday knock-off drinks to bring the team together, but with more and more teams working remotely these days, a great way to get people talking is by sending out a fun themed bottle of wine each month. For example, you could send out a white wine for January and then follow it up with a red in February or even have your own virtual wine tasting and invite everyone to tune in via Zoom or MS Teams.
6) Comfy Blanket or Picnic Rug
What could be better than a comfy blanket on a chilly winter day? Cosy blankets not only keep you warm, but they also make great gifts for anyone.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive, gender-neutral way to make your team feel special, consider buying some comfy blankets or a picnic rug as thank-you gift. A well-cared-for blanket should last for years and only costs around $80.
7) Customised Mugs
A customised mug with your employee’s name on it is a wonderful way to let them know they are valued and appreciated. However, there are plenty of creative ways to customise mugs, so find a way that suits your budget, needs and most importantly – fits in with the personality of your brand.
Consider ordering sets with a mix of fun, uplifting messages or use photos to tell a story. Whatever you choose, give it some thought! This is an amazing opportunity to show your team how much you care and remind them to take that well deserved morning and / or afternoon tea break.
8) Water Bottle
Your team can often spend more time at their desk than you realise so keeping them hydrated is a great way to show you care. Plus, when you’re giving out something as standard as a water bottle, it shows that you also care about sustainability and their health. You'll get bonus points if your bottles are customised with their name on it!!
