Employee Appreciation Day is the perfect time of year to take a break from the busy work schedule to say ‘thank you’ to employees and staff. The holiday this year falls on March 6 and is always scheduled for the beginning of the month. It was designed to provide businesses and employers with a designated day to remember the value of their staff. Not only does it help to build valuable office relationships, it helps make employees feel as though they are important to the organization, which can help reduce turnover.
At Central Square Florist, we love helping employers find great gifts to present as a surprise for their employees. There are a wide range of gifts that can be appropriate for this holiday, but we find that gourmet baskets and flowers tend to be particularly appropriate gifts. Here are some fantastic ideas for starting the gift hunt.
Bon Vivant Gourmet Basket
Bon Vivant Gourmet Basket
This basket offers something for just about any taste. There are fruits, snacks, teas, and more and it can be perfect for that important employee. The various fruit and snacks will help ensure that they have something tasty to munch on for days to come. It is a wonderful way to thank someone and let them know that their hard work is seen and very much appreciated.
Orchids have become increasingly popular with many people in recent years because of their incredible beauty. These delicate flowers offer such rich color that they easily put a smile on anyone’s face. Consider giving those important staff members arrangements of fresh orchids to place on their desks. The lovely scene from the flowers along with their soft beauty will be relaxing and restorative for the recipient. The touching gift will help make anyone feel valued for their hard work.
A dash of spring sunshine
When people enter the month of March, their thoughts tend to turn towards spring and the quickly approaching warmer weather. Give the staff a bit of spring a little early with a bright and beautiful arrangement, such as one with gerbera daisies, hydrangea, tulips, and daffodils. The bright yellows and soft purples that have such a strong association with spring that they will easily light up the entire workspace, helping everyone who sees them to feel happier. It is a wonderful way to liven up the office and let the staff know how much their efforts impact the rest of the company.
Employee Appreciation Day quickly approaches, which means that it is time for employers to show their employees just how much they matter. Brighten the day of the employees and staff by giving a gift of fresh flowers or a gourmet basket. Both of these gift ideas will help brighten the moods and the enthusiasm of any staff member who receives them.
