If you’re a boss, it’s on you to buy Christmas gifts for the team each year.
It can be time-consuming, expensive and downright difficult, but seeing your employees’ faces when they’re treated to a little something makes it all worth it.
After a long, arduous 2021, it’s about time we spread a little kindness and generosity, if you ask me – so I’m here to help make the gift giving process a little easier.
Your presents don’t need to be ridiculously generous to make your co-workers feel cherished and celebrated. Dig a little deeper and find out what they enjoy doing (or wearing) in their free time to inspire your gifts this Christmas.
It’s not about encouraging them to work harder, but letting them know you appreciate all the hard work they have done. Something as little as a book about ‘bloody brilliant women’ is a great way to go, but a bottle of fizz will go down a treat too.
Here’s a selection of the best gift ideas to give your employees in 2021.
