Creative Gifts Ideas for Employees

There are many great and creative gifts ideas for employees, in order to praise their effort, that you can choose from. Keep in mind that gifts should not be boring or mainstream, like a CD or a manual on how to manage time. They can be unique, fun and creative. This will make it even more appreciated by the person who receives it. Some might find choosing a gift for a co-worker hard, which is true, mainly because you don’t know that person, and their likes and dislikes, very well. Giving a gift that a person finds enchanting will be very good for the work environment, so here are some tips on how to give safe gifts that are both creative and safe for you to give without fear of being berated for it. Just keep in mind that gifts are tokens of friendship and appreciation, and should be given with sincerity.

Gifts for Employees

Corporate gifts, which are T-shirts, mugs, art print and other paraphernalia that have the company logo or motto, are the easiest to give to a employees. Moreover, try choosing something that the person can actually use, while at the same time still be fun for him or her to receive. An excellent example is a picture frame. Almost everyone has a picture frame in his/her desk or cubicle, because they lighten up the work area and, for some, gives them inspiration in working. They are easily available in arts and crafts companies like LetterNote where you can choose from a multitude of designs that they have available, now to make this creative you can also make one yourself using materials that are cheap and easy to acquire.

Another example is a personalized coffee mug. This may be considered as a corporate gift, but the creative thing about this is that you don’t put in a company logo in there. Instead, you can put in something witty or funny. Think about what can make that person smile when he/she uses this mug to drink coffee. These are just some ideas on choosing the perfect gift to give to a co-worker, just keep in mind that they don’t have to be expensive. They just have to be given with sincerity and in genuine friendship, and the person receiving the gift will surely appreciate it no matter how much it costs. 

The person receiving the gift will be pleased because he/she knows that you took the time and made an effort in making this gift just for you to give. Creativity is what makes a gift unique for someone, because it will be something that they will want to keep and put on display for others to see. Co-workers are no different. They like working with people whom they know are friendly and willing to make an effort for them. Whether in an office Christmas party or at a birthday party for one of your bosses, creative and unique gifts will surely be fun to give and to receive.

  1. Our new CEO wanted me to get something unique and special to present to the employees at the award ceremony. One of my former colleagues told me about Unique Custom Products in Colorado. I called them, they have lots of one of a kind customized corporate gifts for employees. I chose the wooden gift box which I had engraved with the names each of the employees. The artwork was awesome, everyone was really impressed. I would differently recommend Unique Custom Products to anyone. They are awesome! www.uniquecustomproducts.com
