I work for a large company and have nine people reporting to me. Our company has been though a particularly trying time this year, and my staff has been unusually loyal and productive. I’d like to buy each person a holiday gift. What can I give that is in good taste and doesn’t cost a lot of money?
Movie tickets are always a good bet. That way, a spouse, friend or family member can enjoy your gift too. Another idea is a book. Most every bookstore carries small hardback “gift books.” Some are humorous and some carry light philosophical ideas and quotations.
A nice touch, either on the inside cover of the book or on the card that will accompany the movie ticket, would be for you to write a personal thank-you. Because this gift is meant as a thank-you it would be nice for you to add the personal touch of a written note. The personal note will be appreciated and kept and remembered.
