Top 3 Types of Holiday Gifts for Employees

2020 will go down in the history books as a bizarre and challenging year. We’re all feeling the affects of pandemic-related stress, and all signs point to that stress getting worse. A poll found that 58% of U.S. workers reported burnout in August. That figure climbed by 13% since April, when 45% of U.S. workers reported burnout.

The holiday season is an opportunity to thank employees for their hard work after a tough year. We’ve complied some top employee holiday gifts for 2020. P.S. You can ship any of the gifts mentioned below directly to employees!

1. Gourmet Gifts – For Our Foodie Friends

Who doesn’t want to unwrap a delicious present?! Food-related items are great if you’re looking for personalized employee gifts because you can appeal to many different tastes and preferences. It’s hard to go wrong with traditional tasty items like the Wisconsin Variety Package with cheese, summer sausage and crackers. Or go for something more unique like the Rise & Shine gift box with scrumptious breakfast treats and designer kitchen accessories.

Social distancing and quarantining are leading to a trend in make-at-home cocktails. The Margarita Cocktail Kit and Moscow Mule Cocktail Party for One are perfect for virtual happy hours.

2. Budget Buys – Show You Care Without Breaking the Bank

Many businesses are facing tough financial realities right now and are in search of a gift for employees that is budget friendly. Fear not, there are plenty of options! This Rainbow Tumbler can be as low as just $9.99 per item and is a colorful way to sip hot or cold beverages in style.

Here’s another way to put employee gifts into perspective this year: Most corporate holiday parties are getting nixed this year to limit virus spread. It could be more far more cost effective to give employee gifts this year than it would have been to host a holiday party! On average, you can count on spending $75 per person for a holiday party. There are plenty of holiday gift options that are well under $75, like this Stainless Steel Stemless Wine Glasses Gift Box Set or this ecofriendly Bamboo Cutting Board with Gift Box.

3. Cozy Picks – More Time at Home Calls for Comfort  

Let’s face it – we’re home more often now than ever before. Comfort is always king around the holidays, but this year, cozy items are even more important! Create a personalized employee gift with this Ceramic Pour Over Set that’s sure to brew the perfect cup of coffee at the home (or actual) office. Encourage self care and relaxation with the Cleanse and Revive Gift Set. This gift set offers three heavenly scents – Citrus & Peach Rose, Coconut Milk & Sandalwood and Sea Minerals and Blue Iris.
