Why It’s Important To Show Appreciation For Your Staff—And How To Do It With Gifts

It’s always a great idea to show your staff how much you appreciate them! Everyone likes to know they are doing a good job and if you’re able to ‘nail’ the way in which you recognize your employees—you’ll soon see how effective it is at boosting morale, helping to keep staff happy and engaged. Ultimately, it’s a win-win for everyone!

How to show staff appreciation

As a manager or employer, you probably know it is important to regularly give staff feedback on their performance. But if the right words often fail you, perhaps you could say ‘thanks’ with a gift? After all, according to this employee happiness survey, nearly 45 percent of employees believe that their value at a company is reflected by the gifts they receive. 

However, here’s the kicker: Long gone are the days where any typical corporate gift with the company logo will do. People are far more likely to feel appreciated with a well-thought out gift that shows you know who they are and what they like. That is where the true value in gift-giving lies.

Occasions to give gifts 

There are plenty of suitable occasions where it is appropriate to give gifts to staff and employees—from birthdays, to Christmas, work milestones, retirement and to celebrate personal achievements. Team building days or conferences are also the perfect opportunity to ‘share some love’, providing them with something they can take away from the event. 

But sometimes the best time to give a gift is when they least expect it! Because, well, surprising people is fun. So even if you don’t have a special occasion coming up, no worries. Just buy the gift anyway and show them you appreciate their dedication to their job.

Funny gift ideas

Choosing the right gift to show staff appreciation can be a difficult task. It needs to be appropriate for the individual and the culture of your company, which is why WTF Notebooks could be just what you’re looking for! 

You can choose from our range of notebooks with funny titles, some are a little shocking (for those ‘hard to offend’ workplaces) and others are a bit of a giggle that could be brought to staff meetings (like the ‘Doodles I drew during important work meetings’). The journals come in a range of colors, so you can personalize them to match your company colors or your staff's personalities.

WTF Notebooks make for funny gift ideas for Christmas, or just as something light-hearted to bring the team together, even when working remotely. We have already had many employers buy our funny notebooks for their staff, with some great feedback (or ‘appreciation’ if you will).   

Staff Appreciation Gifts from WTF Notebooks

"Thank you, I received them yesterday and already gave them to my staff. They couldn't stop laughing! 10 out of 10 for quality and the titles are hilarious."

– SIMONE (VIA MESSENGER)

Recognition can be an extremely effective motivator, but that’s not the only reason to give a gift to your employees. Saying ‘thank you’ is simply a nice thing to do, and if you can do it with something that will bring a few laughs to your team (like with a funny quote notebook)—why not?
