The Holiday Season is a popular time for companies to celebrate the end of the year and all of the hard work that their employees accomplished to make it a successful year. Gifting happens every year and can sometimes become more and more challenging as the years go on. Companies want to find the best gifts possible for their employees and make them feel special. Below is a list of 5 holiday gifts that you may not have heard of before and 5 holiday gifts that your employees will love.
1. Custom Gift Boxes
While holiday gift baskets are not a new gift idea, there are many new trends happening with the gift basket industry. There are companies who specialize in creating custom gift boxes for your company. These gift boxes can be branded with your logo, include branded items such as coffee mugs, blankets, jackets, tumblers and can also include non-branded items such as coffee, candles, snacks, tea, calendars, journals, etc. You can even customize these gift boxes to fit your company culture! Check out PeopleProud to learn more about custom gift boxes.
2. Paint Kit
Rather than getting your employees a physical item, get them an “experience”. Send your employees a kit that includes a canvas board, acrylic or water paint, paint brushes, and a photo with instructions. You can even get together in person to paint the photo or host a virtual paint session!
3. Cooking Kit
Rather than getting your employees a physical item, get them an “experience”. Send your employees a kit that includes cooking materials! Send them a Pasta Kit with noodles, pasta sauce, spices, cutlery and a cooking apron! If you want to stick with the holiday theme, you can send a holiday cookie decorating kit that includes cookie cutters, icing, dough, cookie stamps and molds, cookie pan, etc. This is a gift that your employees will truly love!
4. Escape Room / Axe Throwing
Rather than getting your employees a physical item, get them an “experience”. Book them an Escape Room for their family & friends or even with coworkers! If you don’t want to go to an Escape Room, try Axe Throwing! You can pay by the person for a 1.5 hour event! It’s a great gift to get back together after being stuck inside from the pandemic.
5. Host a Trip / Vacation
This gift is on the pricier side, but sure is a good one! Host a trip / vacation for your employees! You can host a company-wide trip to a special occasion in the US or Internationally. Or, send each employee a $1,000 voucher to take a trip on their own! Who doesn’t love taking a vacation? Now this is a gift that will make your employees day!
