The Best Way To Show Employee Appreciation This Holiday Season

2020 has been quite a year. The pandemic has restricted a lot of the valuable interactions we often share with our team – the high-fives after a big win, handshakes during meetings, warm hugs of encouragement and even the smiles we usually see in person. However, your teams have all adapted effectively and kept operations going, despite the sudden shift in conditions. 

Now with Christmas around the corner, this is a perfect opportunity to do something extra special to make your team feel united, valued and appreciated after such a challenging year.  Sure – you might not be able to celebrate together as you have in previous years, but there are still some great ways you can make them feel extra special. The creative gift team at Red Tomato has prepared some more unique and personalised Christmas gift ideas to inspire you. Have a skim and see what you think.

Is it another typical Christmas gift again this year?

With Christmas coming, the usual ‘go-to’ choice is the standard food and drink hampers where you just pick and click. However, everyone sees the same stuff every year, and it really is the standard option.  This won’t make a big impression on your staff and they end up throwing a lot of it away. Plus, the extra waste from the packaging isn’t very environmentally friendly.

2020 is the year for personalised and customised Christmas gifts! 

If you want to give your team a morale lift and truly show your gratitude, customised Christmas gifts are the way to go. Rewarding your team with personalised gifts shows them that you know them and want to recognise all of their extra dedication this year. It’s time to look at premium bespoke Christmas packs. After all, this year has been an extraordinary one and your team deserves an extraordinary gift. If you wish to make your Christmas hampers exceptional, we can help you create premium bespoke hampers that will perfectly suit the taste of your employees. Custom Christmas Hampers

A premium bespoke pack:
  • demonstrates care and thought from the organisation
  • can be tailored to align with a company theme, culture or values
  • tends to last longer as your team will get multiple uses out of the branded items
  • are better for the environment as a result

But most of all, your customised Christmas packs can tell a meaningful story.  For instance, showcase your sustainability efforts, express your support for local Australian businesses or provide an exciting introduction to what 2021 will look like for your business.

Prepping your perfect Christmas packs in 2020

If you want to thank your teams for helping your business remain strong during this difficult time, adding some extra special value to their Christmas gifts is a good way to repay their diligence, commitment and loyalty. The question is: what should you include in your premium bespoke Christmas packs?

Here are some holiday gift tips to guide you:

  • Evaluate what kind of branded products will best tell the story of your organisation

If you are an advocate of the environment, you can add eco-friendly products. Or if your company’s culture promotes an active lifestyle, then include a few games or outdoor activity items.

  • Give gifts that last a long time

Why give typical hampers with standard food and drinks, when you can gift branded items that are used multiple times? Cheeseboards, branded aprons, custom cocktail-making sets and so on will be brought out time and time again!

  • Personalise the packs

Making your Christmas gift packs unique is an indication that you took the time to carefully plan out your gifts this year. Aside from the fact that your team will love the tailored presents, this will also strengthen your company culture and reinforce employee engagement. With proper planning and a touch of creativity, you can extend your gratitude and make the holiday season a very memorable one for your employees – yes, even during this new “norm” era.
