Recognize with Team Gifts During the Holidays

The holidays are right around the corner, and stores will soon be filled with seasonal displays and the hottest holiday gifts. As you start to make your list and check it twice, don’t forget about your team! Team gifts at the end of the year can be a valuable source of motivation, appreciation, and retention.

Why Should I Give Team Gifts?
When you give a gift to your team during the holidays, it’s a sign of your appreciation for all their effort and hard work. Appreciation is a strong motivator for performance, and a tangible gift serves as a lasting reminder to the recipient of your recognition – making it more effective. Gifts can improve morale, create positive buzz, and improve teamwork. Plus, they’re more effective than cash! To learn more about the benefits of giving a gift, read our Non-Cash Recognition White Paper.

What are the Benefits of Give Team Gifts?
Team gifts at the end of the year are perfect for saying thank you, rewarding good work, and motivating for the new year. As you prepare to select gifts for your team, reflect on the goals, successes, and accomplishments of the year. When you present your gifts to the team, share these moments and reinforce the values and behaviors that made them possible. Your team will remember your motivating words and strive to have a successful 2012!

What Should I Give as Team Gifts?
Choose gifts for your team that are personal, sincere, and useful. We like the LED Flashlight Key Chains because they have a great message printed on the side and are practical for everyday use. Sold in packs of five, they’re a nice gift for less than $3 each! 

At Baudville, employees are annually given a Spinner Ornament  with an engraved message on the back. Our executives give the ornaments at our Year End Party, and they often hide $10 gift cards inside them, too! 

Personalized gifts are perfect for your team’s holiday recognition. Add the individual’s name to a gift item, such as a pen and pencil gift setphoto frame, or perpetual calendar and present it during a team meeting. For a truly memorable presentation, engrave a gift item with one of our Character Stories and read the story out loud when you present the gift to the recipient. 

Quick Tips
Some say the art of gift giving has fallen by the wayside, but you can bring it back this season with our five gift giving tips!

1. Keep it Simple. Remember, it really is the thought that counts! 
2. Shop Early. Holiday gift items often have limited quantities, so be sure to shop for your team gifts early.
3. Stick to your Budget. There’s no need to overextend yourself. Shop by price on Baudville.com!
4. A Gift is as Good as its Wrapping. Make your gift beautiful for the presentation!
5. The Presentation is as Memorable as the Gift. Think about what you will say when you present the gift to the recipient. Make it count!
