food snack

1. Their favorite snack and drink on their desk or send a small package to their home

If you don’t have your employees fill out a list of their favorite things, I totally recommend you start now! This is a thoughtful way to show them you care throughout the year. I’ve even included a learning section, to truly make this a work edition.

Feel free to download and customize this for your own use!

2. Handwritten thank you note

Nothing beats a heartfelt, hand-written note from you to show your employees that they are appreciated.

3. DIY gifts like potted succulents, jars of candy, or baked goods

Employees know when you put time and effort into making something yourself. At one point, my leadership team was making hundreds of candy jars, swag bags, and other gifts. It took us several hours to make everything, but the time spent working together as a team to get it accomplished also doubled as a team-building event!

4. A candle that boosts the smell and your self-esteem!

5. An audiobook credit for their next great literary adventure
