The holiday season is here, which has a lot of employers and managers thinking about what to gift their teams for a job well done this year! If you’re one of those employers or managers and need a little gift-giving inspiration, read on for some of our favorites!
But, you’re wondering, what makes a great gift?
It’s a high quality product. Your people know whats cheap and what’s not, so they’re going to know if you cheap out on them. Go big, treat yo employees because they deserve it!
It has utility inside and outside of the office. Whatever you end up getting your team, be sure to consider the question, “will they use this outside of the office?” You want to give a gift that not only shows your team that you appreciate them but one that brings value to their lives both in and outside of the office. Not only will they enjoy it more, but it also shows that you care about your employee’s work/life balance.
It fits within your brand! You want to get your team a gift that both fits within your brand/industry as well as the culture of your company. Giving a good gift will, within it self, promote your brand. Your gift should reflect your organization’s mission, values, culture, and personality. So, without further ado….
Custom travel mugs (which come in all shapes and sizes) - a somewhat easy, and always appreciated gift that your team will take with them wherever they go. We offer customization of a number of brands that will beautifully spot your custom design or company’s branding!
Custom apparel - Odds are you have 1 or 2 tees with your company’s logo on them, so that’s not what we’re suggesting. For the holidays this year, design a custom shirt, sweatshirt, vest, or fleece that your team will love to wear that will fit your budget!
Custom embroidered backpack/travel bags - We can embroider on pretty much anything (not to mention we make killer patches). So, this season, get your team the gift of convenience and beautiful travel pieces! We have access to top name brands like Patagonia, Cotopaxi, Topo Designs, Carhart, and much more that will light your team’s eyes up and give your brand that trendy edge.
Customized tech - Odds are your employees use headphones! Good news is, we can fully customize yours (as well as bluetooth speakers, power banks, etc). So here’s the deal — your employees get swanky tech that they get to use at work and out in the real world, and you get free marketing as they rock their headphones out in the wild. It’s a win-win.
Customized journals — We love journals. We use them for everything—lists, drawings, notes, letters, etc. And so do you. We can emboss leather journals, design full custom color journals, you name it, let’s make it!
These 5 ideas are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cool gift ideas. For more, check out our custom AMB3R Creative promo guide where you’ll see that truly anything is possible.
Wherever the holidays may take you, we hope that you and your team feel valued and seen, whether that means through a thoughtful gift, a fun company outing, or leaving early on a Friday, that’s what the season is about! Take care of and love one another! (Oh, and reach out if you want to get a project going!) HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
