What gifts do employees really want?
The type of gift wanted by employees can of course vary depending on individual preferences and company culture. But here are some notable trends.
- Bonuses and Profit Sharing : In some type of companies, mainly Finance and Tech companies, this is a popular choice because the employees can do whatever they choose to do with this financial gift.
- Customized Gifts are also in high demand. Something that reflects an employee's interests or values can make a meaningful impact. These could include custom-made items and handmade items.
- Eco-friendly Products: Choose gifts made from sustainable materials, such as recycled paper products, bamboo, or organic cotton. Examples include reusable water bottles, tote bags, and notebooks.
- Fair Trade Goods: Support fair trade organizations by gifting products like fair trade coffee, chocolates, or handmade crafts. These gifts ensure fair wages and ethical working conditions for artisans in developing countries.
What gift ideas are great for a new business?
For a new business, we would recommend offering a gift bundle. This idea can allow for a thematic and curated selection of gifts that corresponds to the brand’s values. This is also a great way to showcase different products and brands that are aligned with the brand’s vision. As an entrepreneur, is it always great to connect with similar minded company and expand our business connections.
