With Christmas just around the corner, it’s that time of year where many business owners are starting to think about not just what to get their families and friends but also their employees. Getting Christmas gifts for your business team isn’t just a great way of saying thank you; it can also be used for a number of other business-related goals such as improving employee morale and even encouraging better teamwork.
One good idea is to give your employees a gift experience. This could be something that your team can take part in together to have some festive fun and enjoy spending time with one another outside of work. Here are some ideas that you might want to consider.
If your employees are the outdoorsy type, then hunting could be a fun and exciting activity for them to take part in together. Hunting as part of a group will usually take a lot of careful planning and teamwork, so along with having an experience that they’ll never forget, your team will also come away having seriously worked on their collaboration and communication skills, which can then be transferred into the workplace. From hunting rabbits and deer to hippo hunting in South Africa, there are plenty of great options to consider.
#2. Supercar Racing
Supercar racing is a popular gift experience during the festive season and it’s easy to see why – who wouldn’t enjoy racing around a track in an Aston Martin or Ferrari? Providing that your team all have a full driving license, there are various locations to choose from where you can treat them to the experience of getting behind the wheel of the most powerful car that they’ll probably ever drive.
if you want to incorporate your staff Christmas gifts into a great team-building exercise, then paintballing could be an excellent choice. Fun and exciting, it’s no surprise that paintballing is a popular team-building activity. Buying tickets for your staff can be a great way to get them away from the stresses of work and maybe even encourage some friendly competition between sub-teams.
#4. Spa Day
After a long year of working hard for your company, a spa day can be the perfect relaxing treat for your employees this Christmas. Treating them to a day where they can enjoy treatments such as massages and facials, along with relaxing in a hot tub will leave them feeling rejuvenated and motivated for the year ahead.
#5. Fine Dining Experience
Lastly, if you’re hoping to do something a little bit more relaxing and up-market for your employees this Christmas, then treating them to a fine-dining Christmas meal at a top restaurant can be an excellent way to get everybody together and say thank you for all the hard work they’ve put in for your company this year.
If your workforce will be going taking a few days off over the Christmas and New Year period, then this would be a lovely gesture on the last working day of the year.
