Reminder:  Staff Appreciation Day Is April 26th

Employee Appreciation Day is still, at this point, an unofficial holiday observed in both the US and Canada.  It made its first appearance on calendars in 1995, and since that time has been enjoying a growing level of acceptance in North America.  It’s just a matter of time until it’s formally recognized as a holiday.

Even without being recognized as an official holiday, however, a growing number of business owners are embracing the day as an occasion to recognize their hard-working employees.  Food and festivities are a natural part of the day, and many managers are also in the habit of letting their employees off early.  If that doesn’t work for you for whatever reason, gifts are a good alternative.

If you’re struggling to find good gift ideas for your employees, here are a few ideas to get your mind turning on the subject.

The You Rock Squeezable Stress Reliever

Let’s start with something low cost and simple.  This handy little stress reliever is proof positive that gifts don’t have to be expensive to be fun.  Formed in the shape of a rock and emblazoned with the words “You Rock” on it, this is the perfect way to help take the edge off of those long, stressful days and is a guaranteed conversation starter.

The Thanks For All You Do Motivational Lunch Set

If you’re looking for something that’s a mix of fun and practical, then this handy motivational lunch set might be just the thing.  This brightly colored set contains enough dishwasher-safe food containers to hold a complete, nutritious lunch, all housed in a stylish, insulated lunch cooler.

In addition to that, you’ll find a matching squeezable water bottle so your hard working recipient has a handy drinking cup too.

The cooler itself is offered in a variety of colors and we’ve got several stock messages you can choose to have imprinted on it, or, if you prefer, you can craft your own custom message.

The Positive Spin Pen Cup

This bit of desktop décor is a guaranteed conversation starter, in addition to being practical and motivating.  At first glance, it appears to be a simple, attractive pen holder, but it’s actually much more.

The pen cup is constructed of three different bands that spin, each containing a variety of motivational words.  Simply spin one or more of the bands and get a new motivational message, any time you like.  Such a fun gift, and modestly priced to boot.

The Nacho Average Employee – Ajax Journal

Do you have a writer in your midst?  If so, then this fun journal will surely be appreciated.  Emblazoned with the phrase “Nacho Average Employee,” and offered in two colors, the recipient will find 192 lined pages, along with a front pen loop and a bookmark ribbon.  The perfect notebook for jotting down goals, objectives, dreams or musings.

The Thanks For All You Do Personalized Bottle Of Wine

If you’re looking for something a little more high-end, then consider this personalized bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.  You can order yours with a custom message, or use one of our stock options, as you prefer.  In either case, it’s sure to be remembered and appreciated.
