Promotional gifts to say thank you to your hardworking staff

So Christmas is literally right around the corner and if you are giving your staff a little something to end off the year, chances are you have already bought, packed and labelled the gifts. Giving your staff a little something at the end of the year is a great way to say “thank you” for the commitment and hard work that has been put in throughout the year. Christmas gifts for your staff don’t have to be promotional gifts, but they should be able to reflect your thanks.

Your employees have contributed to your success throughout the year and now is the time to be thankful and give a gift in return. There are such a variety of gift choices this holiday season. Have you put off your Christmas shopping to the last minute? Here are some of the best promotional gift choices that you should consider:

A beautiful selection of wine

For a small staff, the gift of wine is always a special treat. Most people are going to be enjoying a relaxing drink during this festive season and when they have that special bottle of wine to celebrate the end of the year, their festivities are going to be even more enjoyable. Bottles of wine will also make stunning promotional gifts when you place your company logo onto it. These bottles can be commemorative and opened on a special date.

Along with that special bottle of wine, you can also give your employees a box of chocolates or other special treats to be enjoyed over the holiday season. This is the season to give and if your company has enjoyed a successful year then now is certainly the time to be celebrating.

To give you a head start in finding the perfect holiday promotional gifts, we have compiled a quick list that will simplify your holiday shopping experience and still allow you to make an impact with your gifts.

  • Chocolates and sweets in a beautiful box

Using chocolates as promotional items will provide you with endless opportunities to promote your brand. Giving away sweets and chocolates in a special little box with your branding on it will be a memorable gift to give and people are simply going to love this simple but highly effective gesture. If you are not keen on giving away chocolate, you can always give away biscuits, fudge, truffles, brownies or savoury goodies such as peanuts, biltong or pretzels.

This option will really allow you to customise your gift and make it something special. If you give your gift away in a special box you can be sure that the box is going to be kept by those receiving the gift.

  • Miniature tools and torches personalised with your branding

Keeping tools in a handbag, cubby hole or attached to your belt is something that many people will not do without. Miniature tools are great gifts to give away at this time of the year, when they are branded with your logo and company details you will enjoy plenty of success with giving your company branding a big boost. Small flashlights are equally fantastic gifts, especially as load shedding is always a possibility in our country.

  • Easy to manage cooler bags

These are ideally given at this time of the year when people are going to be preparing their Christmas meals in the heat and will need a cool place to keep the food should they be preparing food in one place and taking it to another. Cooler bags are generally just a great gift to give because they are always handy. Hiking trips, road journeys or even just defrosting a deep freeze at home, people can always use a cooler bag. And as South Africa is currently experiencing strange weather patterns that are leaving various regions of the country sweltering in the intense heat, a cooler bag to keep the ice cream cool is just the thing people would love to receive as promotional gifts.

Cooler bags are relatively cheap and they can be easily branded just in time for the holidays.

  • Board games, card games and puzzles

Most people take their annual leave at this time of the year when companies start closing up shop for the year. To keep busy but to still relax during their off time, many people turn to games. Socialising with family members will also oftentimes be a great opportunity to bring everyone together and play cards. You can personalise the game in numerous ways such as by printing your logo on the box or on the actual game. Each time they play your game your branding is going to be seen by everyone.
