Gifts Your Employees Will Actually Want To Keep

Getting gifts for your employees can be a tough one as they all like different things. This can mean that Christmas is a tough time for you as the boss. Not only do you have the trouble of balancing the sales and promotions of the holiday season, you still need to pick something out that your employees won’t hate. Here are some suggestions that you can give your employees to perk them up this holiday season.

Gift vouchers

If you have no idea what to give your employees, then a gift voucher is the way to go. Some grocery store gift vouchers from GThankYou are a great way to ensure that all of your employees have something to eat at Christmas and it won’t involve you dragging bags of Brussel sprouts into the office. Gifting a gift voucher also allows them to choose what it gets spent on so you know that they will choose something that they will love.

Adult learning

A lot of people would love to further their education somehow but find it hard to gather the cash or the time to make it happen. Help your employees out with an online learning experience that will benefit them. There are so many learning courses to choose from, they will be spoiled for choice. As tempting as it might be to choose the course for them, it is best to let your employees decide for themselves. After all, it is a gift and their education.


If there is one thing that never goes out of style, it is books. This is a great chance to give your employees some books that have helped you with your journey to being a business owner. As a rule of thumb, it is a good idea to give them between two to five books as part of a Christmas present. If you want, you can add a coffee mug with some special coffee to make it a little bit more special. You could even mix things up and throw in a classic novel to keep them entertained. However, you could give them a Kindle with a library of books added with your favourite self help books and business books.

Quality drink

A lot of people like to give alcohol during the holiday season, and if this is something that you like to do, make sure it is special. Ditch the cheap wine and break out the cheque book for some quality booze. Grab them some high-quality gin, whiskey, or rum that they can enjoy over the paid time off that you plan on giving them too. Of course, if you are not a fan of giving alcohol, you could always give them a hamper of special teas and coffees instead. This choice depends on your employees and what they like to drink outside of work.

And there you have it, some ideas for Christmas gifts that your employees will be happy to receive and enjoy using.
