    Surprise PTO!

    A great appreciation gift is an unscheduled, surprise day off (that doesn’t count toward their PTO, of course). You can gift this to a single deserving employee or give the whole office a day off. Whether they use the time off for a mental health staycation or a little adventure, your employees will appreciate the office more for the chance to be away from it for a little bit. They’ll return refreshed and engaged. Just make sure the surprise isn’t too last minute—they’ll appreciate the time to make some fun plans.


    Give them a WFH Office Stipend

    Show you appreciate your remote employees and allow them to upgrade their home office! A stipend to get a nicer chair, some tasteful organizers, or a brand-new desk will upgrade their home office (which will, in turn, increase their output).

    Boost your team spirit and spread gratitude with a fun-filled appreciation email! Whether you're crafting a team-wide blast or penning a personalized note, a clever email expressing your heartfelt appreciation can work wonders for your office vibes and give your teammates a confidence boost. Best part? It won't cost you a dime, but the impact on your team will be priceless!


    As we wrap up this ode to employee appreciation gifts, remember that a little gesture can go a long way in making your team feel valued. Whether it's a cozy blanket to wrap them in warmth, a motivational pen to jot down their dreams, or a simple thank you email, these gifts are more than just tokens – they're expressions of gratitude for the fantastic work they do.


    So go ahead, spread those good vibes, and let the spirit of appreciation shine in your workplace. Cheers to an amazing team and the joy that comes with showing them some well-deserved love!
