We know it is only August, we know. If this year is anything to go by, it’s also obvious that it will be here within a flash. Many of us have no idea where this year has rushed off to, and with the tensions still high and things still a little uncertain, maybe focusing on Christmas and its spirit is not a bad idea after all.
So, without further ado, let us take a look at some top Christmas gifts that your hard-working colleagues definitely deserve this year.
Many of us might have been able to cram down plenty of biscuits while working from home, but what are a few more? Giving your employees some luxury biscuits for Christmas is not only often a safe and delicious bet, but you can also get hold of some excellent flavors around the holidays. In addition, festive cookies are a great simple treat for the employees, especially if you just want something to pop in the break room.
While we are on the sweet treats, chocolates also make an excellent festive gift too, which is why they are so popular! That being said, be sure to put down your standard store brands and opt for something a little more special for the holidays to say thank you. Have a look into corporate Christmas chocolate gifts for some great, appropriate ideas.
Power Bank Accessories
It is more important for our phones and laptops to have charge now, as much of our work and socializing is still done remotely. For those who are less into sweet snacks and prefer more practical gifts, then power bank accessory sets are definitely the way to go. You can get some really stylish and sleek gadgets these days, and your employees will be sure to appreciate that you notice they like to stay connected.
Many people might love the holidays, but those very same people might not love the weather and stress it can bring. Cold mornings and early dark evenings can all make a difference to our mood; coupled with the stress and pressure that the festive season can bring, such as busy work hours, extra commitments, and long social gatherings, sometimes things can feel a little overwhelming. To recognize that, why not give your employees a desk oasis or the equipment to make one? This can be anything from a sandbox with a mini rake or kinetic sand to build little sandcastles for a moment of mindfulness. Or a mini garden with real plants and pebbles!
A Day Out
If you are feeling particularly generous, and your state restrictions allow it, why not treat your colleagues to a day out? Paying for drinks, dinner, and a nice activity is a lovely way to thank you for all their hard work this year and offers a little respite amongst everything. Bonus points if you do it during work hours too.
Whatever you choose, be sure to choose something, as your employees will be grateful for the recognition.
