Today is officially Employee Appreciation Day, so if you’re after gifts for employees to thank them for their hard work, look no further! From gift vouchers to their favourite coffee shop to delicious letterbox gifts, we’ve found these 10 great gifts for employees that’ll have them feeling all the love…
10 great gifts for employees
1. A box of brownies
You’ve got brownie mail! It’s a well-known fact the quickest way to someone’s heart is through sweet treats so naturally first up on our list of gifts for employees is this lovely box of brownies by Chummy’s Bakery. Choose from their mouth-watering flavours and send these direct if they’re WFH or straight to the office to share over an afternoon tea break.
2. A personalised name mug
Give them the gift of their new favourite mug! Perfect for them to have something of their own at their desk, personalise each with the names of your employees so they’ll know which mug is theirs when they grab their daily cuppa. Bottoms up!
3. A personalised notebook
Next up on our list of gifts for employees is, of course, a personalised notebook. We have a brilliant range for you to choose from, but our pick would be this Personalised A5 Vegan Leather Embossed Notebook. Great for jotting down important notes from meetings and plans for the day ahead, you can also make it personal to each employee by personalising it with their initials and choosing a colour they love. Win, win!
Good to know: Did you know we also make branded notebooks and other custom notebooks? If you are after something more bespoke, explore our stationery for business here.
4. An office plant
We stand by the statement that no office is complete without an array of lovely plants! Whether it’s to decorate their own home office or to spruce up their desk space, a great gift for people you work with is a pretty plant! We love Beards & Daisies for their wide range of indoor plants and pots to match.
5. A candle making kit
Want to get creative? This candle making kit from Sculp is perfect for getting those hands messy and making something from scratch! Why not make an afternoon of it with snacks and drinks to boot to treat your employees to an afternoon at work they’ll never forget. This can also be sent in the post to other members of the team who can take part over Teams or Zoom!
6. Cocktail kits
Fancy a tipple or two? We love this box of traditional cocktails by Nio sent straight in the post. A lovely treat to help them unwind over the weekend or to accompany a virtual quiz night one evening. Alcohol-free? No problem, their range of mocktails look just as good too!
7. A coffee shop gift card
Where would we be without a strong tea or coffee?! A trip to Costa, Caffe Nero or Starbucks is most people’s breaktime jaunt so why not treat them to a Prezzee coffee shop gift card that can used at all three! Much appreciated by all employees, a coffee shop gift card is something everyone can use…everywhere!
8. A pair of cosy socks
We adore a pair of cosy socks, so this Employee Appreciation Day treat them to a pair of alpaca socks from Tom Lane. Made in Britain, choose from a range of colours and sizes to suit your team. Luxuriously soft and cosy, these socks will be used and loved by your employees and make a unique gift that can be used aplenty!
9. A daily notepad
Help your employees take care of themselves and put their wellbeing first with our very own daily planner desk pad. Featuring space to jot down your daily schedule, your water intake, meals and how you’re feeling, this tearaway pad makes a great gift for employees that looks great on any desk.
Good to know: Did you know we can also collate a selection of inspiring and useful stationery gifts for each member of your team? Explore our stationery for business here.
10. Flask and water bottle set
