How to Foster Healthy and Professional Gift Giving in the Workplace

It’s that time of year again where we all open our hearts and wallets to share gifts with our family, friends, and coworkers. Knowing the do’s and don’ts is key to fostering healthy and professional gift giving.

First and foremost, it’s important to make sure these gifts are appropriate whether working in the office or remotely. Office gadgets are some of the most popular gift ideas for work because of their affordability and practicality. For example, blue light filtering glasses, phone stands, earphones, or wireless chargers. You also can’t go wrong with a gift basket or an e-card for a more fun idea.

Offering employees bonuses is another way to spread thanks and cheer during the busy holiday season. These bonuses are always welcomed and go a long way in helping employees feel valued as essential parts of the team. While earphones and chargers are always nice, financial recognition shows a company’s commitment to their employees which keeps teams motivated and ready for the upcoming year.

It’s a fact – giving gifts improves moral and creates a more positive work environment. When your work family is founded on strong interpersonal relationships, you and your coworkers will enjoy work more and have greater overall production.
