Why give employees corporate Christmas gifts?

Whether you manage a small team of two or run an organization with thousands of employees, sending corporate holiday or Christmas gifts to employees is a great way for companies to show their appreciation and respect for their hard work. It's a thoughtful gesture that can make employees feel valued, which in turn can increase motivation and productivity. Plus, it's an easy and relatively inexpensive way for employers to spread some holiday cheer!


Giving gifts is also an effective way of boosting morale at the workplace. It helps create a sense of camaraderie among employees as they come together to enjoy the season’s festivities.


Moreover, sending corporate holiday gifts shows that company leaders care about their team members’ well-being beyond just business matters. This can be especially meaningful if workers are going through tough times such as financial difficulty or family issues during this time of year.


Finally, delivering holiday presents is an ideal opportunity to promote your organization’s brand values while spreading positivity throughout your office culture. For example, companies with strong environmental commitments can give out sustainable items such as reusable water bottles or bamboo cutlery sets; whereas those with anti-discrimination policies may opt for books that promote inclusivity.


Overall, giving corporate holiday or Christmas gifts to employees is a great way for companies to show their appreciation and express their brand values while creating a festive atmosphere at the workplace. Not only will these presents make your team members smile, but they could also increase morale and productivity in the long run!

Corporate Holiday Gift Ideas

Want to build your own holiday gift baskets for your employees? Here are some great gift ideas to make the holidays special for your employees.


Your gift packaging should be unique, creative, and fun. It's hard to find good bulk gift packaging at your local store so we suggest you check online. Our most popular holiday packaging is our pine crates engraved with a logo, text, or a name. Our sealed crates are also popular and come with a pry bar to open the gifts. If you want completely custom boxes one of our favorite sites is PaperMart. Packaging is one spot where you can really make your corporate holiday gifts stand out.


For ribbons and other accessories like bags, greenery, etc., we love Nashville Wraps. They have a great selection and good prices. For the crinkle paper in your boxes, we find that Uline offers some of the best prices and you can save when you are buying in bulk. The cost of crinkle paper adds up, so try to get the smallest box possible to fit all of your items. If you are packing the Christmas gifts in the office, we suggest you do it somewhere out of the way because the room will be a mess by the time you are done. Save your extra crinkle paper for future gifts.


When deciding on the content for your holiday gifts, you have endless possibilities. Popular corporate holiday gifts might include baked goods, chocolates, trail mix, etc. But don't limit yourself to food gifts. Consider adding technology items like bluetooth speakers, power banks, digital photo frames, or USB drives. You might also think about hobby gifts such as yoga mats, Fitbit watches, etc.


If you will be shipping your holiday gifts after they are done, remember to factor that into your budget. Shipping will likely add $12 to $20 to the cost of each gift.


We hope you have found this guide helpful. If you need more gift ideas for your own corporate gifts or want to see how Shadow Breeze can make your employee holiday gifts a breeze, reach out to one of our gifting experts today. You'll be happy you did.
