Tips on Choosing Memorable Corporate Gifts for Employees

It’s important to reflect upon the contributions, accomplishments, and successes of your team. At Baudville, we present awards and give employee gifts at a company party. Here are some tips on what kind of corporate gifts to give your team and how to make them meaningful for your recipients.

Give  corporate gifts that are personal. Recognition that’s sincere and personal is the most effective. Let your employees know you’re proud of their hard work and contributions. A personalized corporate gift is the perfect way to show how much your appreciation. 

Sometimes it’s hard to select a personal recognition gift for every member of your team. To streamline your gift giving, you can get variations of the same corporate gift item. Our gift books are a perfect example. Gift books focus on a variety of topics, such as teamwork, making a difference, or thank you. Select a unique book for each member of your team, write a note of praise on the inside cover, sign your name, and date it.

Another great idea for corporate gifts is to create a unique gift by adding your logo or artwork to gift item. Simply request a free quote now to begin customizing your very own corporate gift. 


Give corporate gifts that last. Give your team a gift that they will use or will be able to proudly display. Our desktop gift collection has a broad range of corporate gifts to choose from. Some of our favorites are the journals and portfolios. These corporate gifts will be used every day to jot down notes.  To make your gift more personal, write a note on the first page. 

This made a big impression on a Baudville employee! She received a portfolio from her manager. He wrote a personal note on the inside of the portfolio expressing how excited he was to have her on the team. That’s memorable! You can also personalize most journals and portfolios by engraving a character story, logo, or personal message so your corporate gift is seen as special and lasting.

Give meaningful corporate gifts. Reinforce desired behaviors and make your team feel appreciated. If you don’t tell your team what you’re recognizing, they won’t find the gift to be meaningful. When you present your awards or trophies, give specific examples of the award recipient’s successes and accomplishments. 

For examples of what to talk about, download our free Award Presentation Guide. At Baudville, the accomplishments and contributions of our Inspire Award winners are listed before their names are revealed! It’s very effective and keeps everyone in attendance guessing at who could be the next awarded.
