5 thoughtful corporate gift ideas

Employee motivation is a key aspect of every business, no matter how big or small. As a new quarter rolls in, it’s important to keep your employees energetic, pumped and ready for the upcoming challenges. And to do this you need something that not only acknowledges their individual efforts in the previous quarter but something that keeps their eye on the goal. Apart from performance appraisals it might be a good idea to gift your employees to acknowledge the work they have done in the previous quarter. After all, it’s the people who make the workplace. So let’s make them feel special.

Here are a few corporate gift ideas to motivate and appreciate you employees.


You can promote a healthy work-life balance within your company by gifting your employees spa or shopping vouchers. It is something they can enjoy on their day off and it promotes employee welfare. It could even be a company sponsored dinner for 2 in a restaurant. It gives your employees a chance to spend some time with their loved ones, and also a reason to come to work happily the next morning. It’s a win-win.

Corporate gift baskets

How awesome would it be to walk into the office and find a basket full of your favourite sweet treats? So how about corporate gift baskets filled to the brim with cookies, cupcakes and delicious brownies. Employees can welcome their work day with a sugar rush!

Personalised gifts

If you want to make an employee feel extra special, you need to start snooping. Get their teammates to list things that he/she absolutely cannot live without, get them a customised phone cover with pictures of 5 things they love and the company logo of course. A little branding doesn’t hurt anyone. It increases team bonding and makes for colourful phone covers all around the office! You could also decorate their workspace with their favourite band poster or even a few minions around their desk, to keep a part of their personality for people to see.

Jar of compliments

Praise and appreciation are the best kind of gifts. They make your work day brighter and happier in an instant. To make this happen for your employees, you could set up a jar of compliments. Every employee in the organisation could pen down a compliment about said employee on a chit and deposit it into the compliment jar. The best part? It’s free and is extremely motivational.

Years of service

It’s best to stick to luxury items when dealing with senior management. Maybe an engraved Mont Blanc for completing 10 years and more with the company, or a weekend away for their family, to a company guest house or a bed and breakfast in a quaint scenic town.

So get your luxury corporate gift ready, and hit the ground running. It’s time for some motivation!
