Preparing For Staff Christmas Gifts
Author: Jackie Date Posted:22 August 2011
While we are little way off Christmas just yet, many have already been buying gifts for their loved ones and friends. It’s a great way to be organised and beat the Christmas shopping rush. It’s also a great way to not have a mini financial crisis affording gifts for everyone at the same time. The same could be said for smart businesses that have a team of people working for them. If you’re company buys gifts for their staff and clients at Christmas, it might be wise to start thinking about it now. Here are a few good reasons why.
Deciding and getting in early.
It can be tricky to decide what to give staff as a gift to say thanks for their hard work at Christmas. Bottles of wine are not always suitable as not everyone drinks however these can be re gifted by your staff. But then that means they have nothing at all to enjoy for themselves except the good feeling sharing. A fantastic gift that contains a few different items that can be kept and shared is gift hampers. Christmas gift hampers contain something to suit every possible taste and look beautiful which makes the gift more special. By choosing early in the year to give gift hampers you can start thinking about placing your order early too. This is a great idea because you will avoid disappointment of the hamper being out of stock completely or the supplier not having enough.
Budgeting for gifts.
At the end of financial year some companies like to start thinking about their budget for the following year. This will inevitably include gifts for bonuses and Christmas. By investigating the type of hampers that will be chosen as gifts the cost can be included in the new budget. Early planning means you may discover your budget can allow for bigger, better hampers or that you need to downsize. If downsizing is to be the case, don’t lose heart, there is a hamper to suit every budget so even the smaller budgets can afford to show their appreciation. Clients and staff will be more than happy to receive their beautiful hampers and be impressed with the thought that has been put into their gift. Where clients are concerned, items with company logos can be added to assure they think of you for their next order.
Whoever will be receiving your Christmas baskets, a little planning will ensure no one will be disappointed. Showing your appreciation will increase productivity and raise profit and this will make a happy Christmas for all.
