The holiday season is near, as almost every retail business has reminded us since practically the first day of November. Although a time for giving, the end of the year approaching can put a lot of pressure on companies of all sizes to meet business goals. Additionally, as a business owner or manager, it may be hard to find the time to gift shop for your employees. Make sure your employees’ hard work goes appreciated by checking out some great holiday gift ideas below.


Some people concentrate on a task better when listening to their favorite music. Quality headphones makes a great gift for those who prefer to listen to their favorite music without disturbing those who prefer a more quiet work environment.

Personalized Stationary

Although smartphones and computers can take care of it all, a personalized planner, desk calendar, or notebook is a thoughtful gift no matter the recipient. Add an employee’s monogram and/or business title to make it personal, and select a size that can easily fit in a tote or laptop case, making it easy to bring along to meetings.

Prepaid gift cards

Let your employees shop for something they’ll love with an Awards2Go Visa Prepaid Card. Whether it’s redeemed during a night out or on a purchase at the mall, recipients can use Awards2Go Visa Prepaid Cards wherever Visa is accepted within the United States. Available in any amount between $5 and $1,000, Awards2Go Visa Prepaid Cards are available in many designs to choose from, including holiday and custom designs.  Cards can also be customized to include the recipient’s name, making it a truly personalized gift.

Bundled Gifts

A gift basket of holiday treats such as fruit, chocolate, or cheese is a great way to say “thanks” and gift an entire team. For the more creative gift-giver, or to customize a gift basket for each team member, create your own gift bundle, adding a few items that fit just about everyone–lottery tickets, a portable smartphone charger,

Office outings

Treat your team to a day out of the office with a fun activity–even better if you make it a surprise. Venture downtown to see a play or visit a museum, or stay nearby with a trip to a new lunch spot or happy hour. Your employees will appreciate having some time away from the office.
