While encouragement goes a long way toward thanking and motivating employees, there’s nothing quite like a tangible gift to get the message across. Reward your employees with corporate gifts, and they’re likely to feel honored, appreciated, and valued.
Just any gift won’t do, though. It’s important that the corporate gifts you choose for employees reflect your level of gratitude for their efforts. It’s also imperative that the gifts for employees are items they find useful. When looking for corporate gifts for employees, consider if the gift is something you would personally like and use.
The best corporate gifts are personalized. Personalizing gifts does double duty by showing employees they are highly valued, while also showcasing your brand in a way that is fun and memorable. This all helps create employee loyalty.
Choosing the right corporate gifts for employees takes some forethought and consideration. When you take time to consider various corporate gift ideas, you have a chance to determine the absolute best corporate gifts for your employees.
Who better to ask about what they’d like as a gift than gift recipients themselves? Surveys asking what type of gift employees would like is a fun and engaging way to show your people that you care. Taking the time to devise a survey also reflects that you value employee opinions, and that they matter. Even better, when they have a say in the type of corporate gift they would like, they’re going to be much more likely to enjoy and appreciate the gift when they receive it.
There are plenty of good reasons to give corporate gifts throughout the year--not just the holidays. Birthdays, work anniversaries, and on-the-job advancements are other good reasons to start gifting. Corporate gifts can also be used to reward the entire company for record sales, and gifts are a great morale booster and motivator. If you give a gift to every employee, doing so can strengthen bonds and promote teamwork.
If a gift is a hit, you’ll want to have some extras on hand for future employees. Stock up so you can leave a few branded gifts on the new employee’s desk for their first day. Additionally, think about sending a few of your branded corporate gifts to clients so they have something to remember you, or give them a souvenir the next time they visit your office.
Branded corporate gifts featuring your company logo or design are great for employees and clients. If you’re not sure what to get, here are a few popular ideas to consider.
Comfortable and beautiful Denali Custom Blankets give you the opportunity to show employees you value their work in a big way. Choose from 60x50 or 60x72 blankets in durable fabric. Add your logo or design to the blanket, and you provide employees with long-lasting corporate gifts they’ll enjoy using for the rest of their lives.
Coffee mugs and branded bottles are some of the most commonly recommended corporate gifts, and for good reason. Branded mugs are a timeless classic and are a relatively affordable corporate gift that can be used every day for morning coffee. On the other hand, tumblers are great because they can keep drinks hot or cold all day long and feature a closable lid for on-the-go use. If you’ve got it down to these options, consider running a survey to see which your employees would prefer!
Corporate gifts that are useful and high-tech tend to be a big hit. Help your employees locate lost keys and other valuable items by getting them a wireless key tracker. Every time employees use the tracker to locate items like keys, wallets, purses and luggage, they’ll see your company logo and thank you for the assist.
As stores across the country make the transition from plastic and paper to reusable bags, these have become an increasingly popular corporate gift. Give your employees something they can use often, and enjoy free advertising for your brand every time they go to the grocery store. The Baggu bag allows for carrying over the shoulder or holding by hand. You can fit two to three grocery bags worth of items in these roomy bags that fold into a flat 5x5-inch pouch when not in use. Think about whether you’ll give employees one bag or multiple with different designs, and if you’ll want standard or insulated bags.
Thanking employees for their dedication and superior performance in writing is always a plus. Emblazon this on a personalized metal paperweight, and your appreciation will be enduring. This zinc alloy paperweight features an inspirational quote on the front. On the back, engrave a message and employee name or company logo. If you’re not a fan of this design, consider other paperweight award-style gifts such as engraved glass or small trophies celebrating employees for their achievements.
A personalized wine glass (or set) makes a great employee gift. Employees will remember how much you value their hard work and dedication every time they toast. Ideal for casual entertaining or even decor, an eye-catching laser engraved wine glass is the perfect gift for your employees.
A branded umbrella is another functional gift that makes a big impression. Many manufacturers let you choose from different umbrella styles and add custom colors with your logo. Stock up on these and leave a few by your office door for the next rainy day, your employees and visitors (including clients) will be thankful you have extra.
Branded backpacks are great corporate gift because of their versatility and practicality. Whether your employees use them daily for the office or exclusively for travel, a branded backpack is something everyone will have a use for at some point. Choose from a wide variety of styles and sizes, and think about whether you want a traditional backpack or a lightweight drawstring bag (or even both). As an added bonus, consider filling the backpack you give with other company swag or snacks.
Give your employees a way to proudly represent your company every day with a custom jacket featuring your logo. A great jacket can be worn on a daily basis, which is why we’d recommend it over shirts which need to be washed often. When choosing a custom jacket, consider the climate of where you live to help with your decision on the material.
Ok, we know we mentioned Denali custom blankets awhile ago, but even a non-branded Denali blanket would still be a fantastic gift for your employees. Denali offers a wide selection of no-branded, decorative, durable, and comfy throw blankets which are made for a lifetime of use. No matter the time of year, your employees will love cozying up with our super-soft Microplush fabric blankets that get softer with every washing. The innovative fiber technology ensures a regulated temperature control. That means your gift recipients will be comfortable wrapped up in the blanket any season of the year.Learn more about the Denali difference or shop now to find the perfect blanket for your employees!
