Simple, Thoughtful, Desired Is the Way To Appreciate Your Employees - Be Creative

Employees are a big part of any business’s success story. Essentially without hard-working, dedicated and loyal employees, you won’t be running a successful company. It is understandable that you should want to appreciate your employees and team members for a ‘job well done’ or even without any cause!

Showing appreciation to your employees is another matter altogether. You can hand out appreciation letters and be done with the day but there are so many clever gift ideas that can be tried instead!

Who doesn’t love to receive gifts? Here are some clever gift ideas that will certainly make you the ‘Boss of the Year’.

Bring Greenery into Their Cubicle

Office cubicles are drab, white (or some other generic color) and give off negative vibes on really stressful days. Spruce up their space by gifting them the color of peace and tranquility. A little greenery in the form of a desk-friendly plant will make any office cubicle cheery.

In addition to being an excellent appreciation gift idea, your employees will love the idea of being responsible for a live and miniature indoor plant that make a great addition to any desk or cubicle! Also consider this Juniper Bonsai that comes in its own glazed ceramic pot, sitting on top of a rock humidity tray.   

Ensure They Eat a Warm Lunch, Every day

Many offices don’t have proper kitchen facilities that make life difficult for employees especially during lunchtime. Warm homemade lunch seems like a luxury! Help out an employee in need by gifting the incredibly Magic Cook Lunch Box.

This product reheats food by using a heating pad with water! No microwave in the kitchen? It’s no problem for the triple layer Magic Cook Lunch Box. 

Take Them out Shopping

Are you a manager to a sales team that just hit a huge number-based sales goal? You might want to celebrate with the entire team and appreciate them for all the hard work! There isn’t any better way to celebrate this milestone by taking the entire team for a day at the mall.

Use the number based milestone as a basis and hand that amount (in cash) to all present.

Still have some money left? Treat everyone to dinner and drinks!

Subscribed E-Book Subscription

There are few things better than books. Show your appreciation to all employees by subscribing to subscribed e-book gift subscription. Costing only $10 for monthly subscription, your employees will have their choice of literary classics, bestsellers and new releases for 30 days.

Give the Grocery Store Gift Cards

Let's face it, we all have to eat and it can take a big chunk out of our monthly budget. Why not help them out with that burden by randomly giving them a gift card to a popular grocery store near their home.

It will take a bit of some detective work to figure out where they like to buy their food. I like to start the conversation by talking about where I buy my food. Then turn the conversation around and ask them.

When your speaking to them, you should be able to determine if this is a place they like or they just settle.  If it sounds like they are settling, follow up with what other options do they have near them. You'll get your answer.

Everyone loves this simple, but thoughtful gift idea. It is certainly an easy way to appreciate your employees!

Think outside of the norm when appreciating your employees after all National Employee Appreciation Day is all about celebrating their success in a manner they can appreciate! Refer to Leadership Skills for Life whenever you require some help in being a good leader to your employees!
