Recognize and Reward Employees with Business Gifts

Recognize and Reward Employees with Business Gifts

Business gifts are a great way to boost productivity and morale within your company.  A great gift makes employees feel special and cared for. Employees are motivated to return the kind gesture through their work. Employee business gifts are strategized in four tiers: incentives, rewards, gifts for individuals and teams. Let’s take a more in-depth look at each tier with business gift recommendations to recognize and reward your best employees. Companies with high employee engagement have 50% higher sales. They experience 22% higher productivity, 50% more returning customers. The word “incentives” means different things to different people. In its simplest terms, an incentive is anything designed to drive productivity toward an ultimate goal. Enhance your brand experience by increasing your employee engagement, leading to more customers.   Incentive Business Gifts Corporate incentives and employee recognition gifts create a culture of loyalty, strengthening the bottom line and growing business. Incentive gifts engage your employees! Higher engagement means higher productivity and an enhanced bottom line.     Rewards Make sure that your employees’ hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. Reward them with gifts they’ll truly love! GiftTree’s collection of rewards gifts for employees expresses your sincere appreciation for your employees’ dedication and willingness to lean in to the goals of your company.     Individual Gifts Always follow the golden rule of gifting: the best gifts are the ones that are tailored to the recipient. Consider the employee you are giving a gift to! What are their tastes, their needs and their personality like? When your company gifts a well-thought-out gift, your employee will recognize that they are a valued member of the team.  ...
Get Ready for World Cup Finals

Get Ready for World Cup Finals

Who’s been keeping up with the World Cup this year? There are only 7 games left until the final match, set to play on Sunday July 15th. Who do you think will take it? Will it be a European team, like Croatia, England, Belgium or France, the last remaining Nordic team, Sweden, one of the South American teams Uruguay or Brazil, or the host country, Russia? There is a lot of speculation going on these days, and a lot of people who have seen their teams eliminated (I’m still a little sad about Denmark) have moved on to rooting for one still standing (Heja Sverige! Go Sweden!). No matter who you’re rooting for, these next few weeks are going to be pretty darn exciting. If you’re hosting a Fifa World Cup Finals party, we’ve got some entertaining ideas and recipes (because let’s face it – it’s all about the FOOD!) to make your viewing party especially fun. To help you get ready for World Cup Finals, here are a few tips and recipes. IDEA #1: Charcuterie, Chocolate, Cheese Boards, Fruits and Vegetables — make big, shareable platters ahead of time! They’re easy to assemble, easy to pick at, carry lots of variety for your guests and aren’t totally distracting to eat. We recently saw an amazing idea on BBC’s Good Food Blog – the components on the platters created the flags of the competing countries. How cool is that? IDEA #2: Match the menu to the teams playing! A simple and cute idea is to match the regional cuisine of the teams playing to the food you serve. France? Warm...

Are you getting together with neighbors today, or hosting a party at your own house?

Everyone deserves to feel accepted, loved, connected and welcome. Think about how special you’d make someone feel if you just invited them over to join in your celebration of America the Beautiful!     The Fourth of July is also great excuse to give a delightful gift. Whether you’re sending a gift across the miles to your favorite patriot or thanking the hostess for her outstanding party planning skills, GiftTree’s Independence Day...
July Birth Flower: Larkspur

July Birth Flower: Larkspur

Did you know that every birth month has its own flower, and each of those flowers has its own dedicated meaning? It’s believed that the Romans began this tradition as well as floriography, the language of flowers themselves. In general, the birth month flower is usually the plants that reach their peak blooming season during that month. With July being the first full month of summer, there are many many flowers in season right now, from hydrangea to daisies and sunflowers But July’s birth month flower is none other than larkspur. Standing tall and beautiful, larkspur belongs to the buttercup family and blooms in a vast array of colors from pink to white to blue. Larkspur is thought to have earned its name because of its blossom – every bloom contains an elongated petal that looks like a spur, presumably like the hind claws of a meadowlark. Larkspur flowers represent affection and laughter, a lightness of heart and a sweet disposition. If someone you know has a birthday in July, a bouquet containing larkspur is a perfect gift and a sentimental offering. GiftTree has a few gorgeous flower bouquets that are perfect for sending during July birthdays, such as our Pretty in Purple Bouquet, containing gorgeous larkspur in white and purple as well as lush lavender roses and seeded eucalyptus. Or send the Garden of Grace, with pink larkspur, spray roses and another blossom that is in its prime during the month of July, the hydrangea. The image on the header of this blog is the Wonderful Day Bouquet, a tall and lovely bouquet of larkspur, matsumoto asters, freesia, snapdragons and more....
