Learn about their interests
One of the best things that you can do is to learn about the interests of the people you are giving the gifts to. This will allow them to like the gifts that much more. For example, a yeti custom shop would be the perfect gift if they like the outdoors and would appreciate their water staying cold when it’s hot out or hot when it’s cold out. Someone that enjoys camping when they are not in the office would be very appreciative of this yeti. You could have the logo put onto it, the business name, or even their name to make it extra special. You can make it as specific as you want it to.
Find out if they have a dog
Do they have a dog? If they do, people love that you have taken notice of their dog. You can get their dog a gift which you know they will love. Some of these would include new toys for their dog, perhaps you could get them a leash, perhaps a fun bowl with their name on it. All of these options show that you care and have noticed they have a dog and you want to support them with it. It’s a fun gift that you are sure to get a few “awe’s” from.
Find out where they shop
The next gift idea may seem a little lazy, but most people really will appreciate it. It is a gift card. You won’t just get any gift card though. You want to get a gift card from a place they already shop. For example, if you know they love the outdoors or loving shopping at a specific store for their clothes, you could get them a gift card to there. If all else fails, you can get them a simple visa gift card or a gift card to Target. With that said, if you get them a gift card to a store you know that they shop at, it will show you put more thought into it.
What exactly is their job?
What do they do for your business? Are they in charge of the office? If so, they may like additional office supplies with the business on it. Something like a really nice pen, even in a box. They may like additional note pads, they may like a t-shirt or a hat with the business on it. Something that is practical for them to use for the business during their job every single day is a great thing to use for them and a gift that they can be using at their job.
What would they appreciate?
What is something that they would appreciate and end up using? You want something that won’t be opened and tossed to the side. You want something that will be opened and you get a smile on their face and something you know that they will be using in the next couple of weeks. If you are feeling unsure of what they will appreciate and end up utilizing, you can ask their coworkers or people that are working beside them. Typically, people that are working close by them end up having conversations with them and they end up learning more about them. This means that they know what they may appreciate. If you are looking for something specific for a coworker or an employee, you want to learn what they would appreciate in a gift and utility use.
What is their goal?
You want to think about and even think back to their resume in terms of what they ultimately want to do in their careers. Many people are in a job that they want to progress or they want to end up getting into another area of the office. If that sounds like something they may want, perhaps you invite them out to lunch and it is on you. At that time, you can chat with them about their future and chat with them about some areas of the office that may be opening up. You never know what your employees really want to do and it’s a wonderful gift that you can be given to learn these types of things that can help them in their future and help them with their ultimate goals.
