Customized notepads are great to give to employees when you don’t know what else to give. Below is an example from Amazon(affiliate) I found.
Fresh Fruit all year
You can get three months to a year shipped to your employees. You can also send fruit during the holidays. Other things like ham can also be given to your employees if you think they would prefer it. Be sure to ask them if they are allergic to any fruit so you know before you buy something. Here is an example of a monthly fresh fruit gift from Amazon (affiliate).
People love their gourmet coffee. Why not allow them to try different coffees each month? Below is an example I found on Amazon (affiliate).
Does your staff love nuts or chocolate? Both are great for employees who are not allergic to them. Below is a nut and chocolate basket holiday gift idea from Amazon (affiliate).
Many people love to self-care on the weekend. This could be taking a bath, soaking their feet, or doing a facial routine. For those employees, they would love spa baskets as holiday gifts. Please note: Only give if you feel comfortable with employees enough to do this. Below is an example of a spa basket kit.
Theme Gift Ideas
Years ago, I was given a gift from an employee. They purchased movie CDs of a movie that had my name on it. She did give different named movies to other staff members, too. I thought it was so clever and unique. I usually can’t find things with my name on it. Thinking about gift themes for a few minutes will help you find a unique gift without spending lots of money.
Tax purposes when giving gifts:
Remember, the value of a gift card needs to be included in their pay so taxes can be allocated to them. Visit the IRS Frequently Asked Questions page about gift taxes for more information.
I hope this post helps you decide what to give your awesome employees for a job well done. Planning out when you to order will help distribute the cost over several months, and you do not have to spend as much at the end of the year. Above all else, look for something that will show them how much they mean to you.
