Festive Rewards – Promotional Gifts for Employees and Students

5th December 2021

Christmas Promotional Gifts

It’s always good to reward people, whether it’s students or employees. And though providing tokens of your appreciation is great at any time, Christmas provides an ideal opportunity to say thank you, reward achievement and spread some good vibes. Promotional gifts are a great way to do this.

According to Think Smart, employers using incentive schemes note a 79% success rate in achieving goals when the right reward is offered. Significant research has been completed on how praise and recognition affect individuals. Results show that it can reduce stress and improve sleep. Happy and appreciated employees are also more productive.

There are many ways that employees can show their appreciation to staff and reward achievements. A good example is to provide an extra day off. This always goes down well. In a world where we’re often time poor, having an unexpected day to spend with loved ones, relax or just do nothing is often a welcome surprise. Other options include providing employees opportunities to pursue personal projects and allowing time to volunteer or provide charitable services. And if you’re going down the gift giving route, then vouchers, hampers and other food treats are particularly popular at Christmas.

Promotional gifts also have their place and can be handed out with corporate Christmas cards or on the last day of the working year. Promotional products that have proved popular with our customers include trolley tokens, drawstring bags and water bottles. Functional items can be used repeatedly, and good design will encourage use.

And it’s not just employers who find that incentives and rewards are beneficial. They also work in a school and college setting. Silicone wristbands are great for younger children to reward academic and behavioural achievements. Button badges are also popular. Our enamel badges are popular way to acknowledge house captains and head students. Whereas college and university students may appreciate functional items such as travel card holders for travelling to and from college, and drawstring bags for books and sports items.

And of course, as well as thanking or rewarding employees and students, promotional gifts have the added benefit of carrying your logo or message to increase awareness. Our promotional products can be customised with your choice of colour and artwork. We also offer free delivery to one UK mainland location when you spend £50 or more.
