“Sincere and hardworking employees are considered to be the real assets of a organization. They comprise of the manpower behind the success of an organization and without them, all the other assets are as good as waste. This makes it very important to motivate the employees from time to time and boost their morale on a regular basis,” according to ILoveIndia.com.

However, this is easier said than done. The truth is buying gifts for employees can be challenging, considering that you’re dealing with different types of people with different tastes. To simply this, here are some time-saving ideas to consider:

Give them time - nothing beats a holiday. It’s the best gift for tired and busy employees who work all week. Surprise your employees by giving an an extra day off . This can fall on a Friday or any day before or after regular holidays. This is one great gift that money can’t buy!

Feed them - in these days of  high prices, a gift basket is a tasty treat that every employee will appreciate. Fill your basket with fruits in season, chocolates, ham, cookies or anything that will whet their appetites. If you’re a food company, include your own new products for your employees to sample. Since most people love to eat, they’ll surely enjoy getting food baskets that are always welcome and never go out of style. The best part is that your basket doesn’t even have to contain food at all.

“Create a gift basket for your employees personalized to their tastes. If they are wine lovers, give them a basket filled with different types of mini bottles of wine or one or two larger bottles of wine. Add crackers, cheese and sausage to the basket and a few wine trinkets such as a pretty wine glass or wine-glass charm. If they are movie lovers, fill a basket with popcorn, candies and their favorite DVDs if you know them or tickets to a movie theater, a gift card to Best Buy or a free subscription to Netflix,” said Melissa McKean in “Unique Christmas Gifts for Employees.”

Give them a bonus - since you’re company is on top because of your employees, why not give them a bonus? True, money can’t buy everything but your employees won’t mind since money is hard to come by these days and it’s something they can use for their benefit. By giving them extra money, your employees can buy what they want. Nothing can be better than that!
