Elegant Employee Gift Ideas

As an employer, you know how important it is to recognise the hard work and dedication of those in your team. Celebrating your colleagues is a great way to keep morale high and show much you value their efforts and abilities, helping to create a healthy, welcoming work environment where everybody is motivated to succeed.

There are so many ways to show your appreciation to your teammates, and a simple gift can go a long way when it comes to employee recognition.

So, when should you give gifts to your employees, and what are the best employee gift ideas? Let’s explore some of the best ways to show some extra love to those who deserve it the most.

Work Anniversary Gift Ideas

A work anniversary is certainly an occasion worth celebrating. Another year as part of the team means another year of hard work, and it’s so important to show your thanks for their continued commitment to the success of the company. While it isn’t essential to give a gift for the first few anniversaries, it’s certainly a great gesture to at least give a card or perhaps a gift voucher as a token of appreciation. Of course, the bigger the anniversary, the bigger the celebration, and after a few years of service you should definitely consider going for something grander.

Champagne is always a wise choice for any big celebration, and for a truly luxurious work anniversary gift, our Knightsbridge hamper is an excellent choice.

This elegant hamper comes packed with a variety of delectable treats. On the savoury side, enjoy cheese straws, apple chutney, basil olives, and more, while on the sweet side you’ll enjoy a delightful selection with lemon sponge steamed pudding, double chocolate biscuits, cherry & almond loaf cake, milk chocolate pudding bars, and more.

In this work anniversary gift, you’ll get a bottle of Trivento Private Reserve Malbec and Paul Langier Brut Champagne, as well as Edinburgh After Dinner coffee. An alcohol-free option is available too, and the Knightsbridge hamper comes with a dazzling chevron ‘Congratulations’ balloon to show some extra love on their major milestone.

Gift Ideas for Leaving Colleagues

You might be looking to say thank you and farewell to a colleague or employee who is moving on from the company. Whether they’re retiring or heading somewhere new, it’s always important to give thanks for everything they’ve done during their time with the company.

We have a range of Thank You hampers and gift baskets that are carefully curated to be the ultimate symbol of gratitude. For a longstanding member of the team, our Thank You Belgrave Hamper with Veuve Clicquot Champagne is an outstanding pick. Alongside the bottle of champagne, they’ll also get bottles of Yellow Label Prosecco from Mionetto, Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay from Penfolds, Koonunga Hill, and Mâcon-Villages Blanc from Marie-Louise Parisot. For food, they’ll enjoy a huge selection of sumptuous snacks, from rosemary focaccia bread thins to classic crisps, to shortbread, to almond cantuccini and beyond. A gorgeous ‘Thank You’ floral holographic foil balloon comes alongside the timeless lidded willow basket, making it a fantastic gift idea for a leaving colleague that truly shows how much you appreciate their work.

We also have a number of Retirement Hampers for those who are saying goodbye to working life and beginning a new chapter of blissful freedom.

If you’re looking for something smaller that still shows your appreciation – a personalised gift crate would certainly be well received. Our Thank You Port & Stilton classic gift box is a wonderful choice, or for something non-alcoholic for sweet-tooths, go for the Chocolate Tasting Experience ganache selection. Presented in stately wooden crates with rustic woven handles, these simple gift sets can be personalised with your own special farewell message engraved atop the lid.

If a member of the team is welcoming a new member of the family – you can congratulate them with one of our Baby and Mum-to-Be hampers before they head off on maternity or paternity leave. This is a great way to wish them well and show that you’re thinking about them while they’re away.

Employee Gift Ideas for Promotions

A promotion is another milestone worth celebrating. If you’re giving an employee a promotion that means they’ve consistently excelled and earned your trust and appreciation. The promotion is reward in itself, but to really show how deserving they are of their new role, you can give them a special gift, showing how important and admirable this new step really is. A gift tower is a remarkable choice for a remarkable achievement.

Our Chocolate Collection Gift Tower is truly magnificent. Chocolate lovers will be overjoyed with double chocolate biscuits from Four Anjels, a milk chocolate pudding bar from Cotswold Gourmet, Lily O’Brien’s Petit Indulgence Collection, Lindor chocolate truffles from Lindt, chocolate raisins, mini eggs and crumbly clotted cream fudge pieces from Little Things, and San Cristobal drinking chocolate from Cafedirect. All of this chocolatey goodness comes packed in a glittering tower of gift boxes, a grand gift for a major career accomplishment.

Employee of the Month Gift Ideas

Regularly recognising your team’s great work is a great way to keep spirits high, which in turn ensures everyone is motivated to stay productive and enthusiastic. One way to do so is awarding Employee of the Month to a different member of the team each month. For something more regular like this, you won’t necessarily want to go all out on a huge gift. Instead, go for something smaller that will still bring plenty of joy to the hard-working recipient. Our hamper gift vouchers are an excellent choice, letting them decide which Regency Hampers gift is best suited to their tastes.

Gift Ideas for Large Teams

There are plenty of occasions where you might want a wider celebration with the whole team – be it celebrating a major achievement like winning a new client or reaching financial targets, or simply celebrating the holidays and the end of another successful year of business. You might be looking for an extra way to reward your team at the annual Christmas or Summer Party, or perhaps you just want to show some extra appreciation.

On the other hand, perhaps you’re looking for something to show your appreciation to a client or stakeholder. Our wide range of corporate gift baskets are excellent whether you’re gifting them to another company, or sharing them with your valued team.

A Six-Bottle Classic Wine Crate is a fantastic year-end gift for corporate clients, or a great award for a smaller team that’s made a big impact. This crate offers fantastic variety for wine-lovers, with Zonin 1821 Prosecco Doc Spumante Special Cuvée, Mionetto Yellow Label Prosecco, Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Casillero del Diablo.

If you want to go all out, the Regency Supreme hamper is a breath-taking choice; the perfect way to show how much you value your team and a luxurious addition to a company party. Inside this marvellous hamper you’ll find plenty of sumptuous food and drink to serve the entire team, from Scotch Reserve smoked salmon and a honey glazed ham joint, to luxury mincemeat tarts, Christmas pudding, panettone, and so much more. To drink, there’s something for everyone, with bottles of whiskey, vodka, Chablis, Rioja, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, English sparkling wine, and of course two lavish bottles of premium champagne from Krug and Dom Pérignon. This is truly the ultimate gesture of kindness and care, and the perfect way to celebrate the hard work of your team in style.
