Are you buying gifts for your employees or clients this holiday season?

Creating a culture where employees and important clients feel valued benefits your business with increased employee engagement, commitment, and overall productivity. During the holiday season, employee recognition is a natural part of the workplace. How a leader meets those expectations can influence how employees/vendors/clients feel about the company and their team.

Christmas is the perfect time for companies to show how much they value their employees and special clients. Not sure what to give this year or to even gift at all?

A gift is a signifier of understanding and personal insight. When a gift is done right, it deepens a personal sense of belonging. It’s the small personal touches that make the biggest difference. Giving a gift is really more than just a gesture. It’s a way to show how much you really care. They say that action speaks louder than words, and there’s no better way to say you appreciate someone than with a simple gift. It doesn’t need to be expensive.

As we move into the Christmas season, we’re moving into one of the busiest seasons of the year. As you think about what gifts you want to give, maybe someone on your team just had a baby, has experienced a loss, is taking care of aging parents, is recovering from surgery, is working long hours and is away from their family a lot or is just plain tired.

Perhaps this year instead of the basket or the bottle of wine you’ll consider gifting The Gift Of Time? It positions you as a thoughtful employer, client or team leader because time is a concrete expression of love that people can measure. The Gift of Time says, “I value you,” and, “You are important to me.” “I heard you when you said you had a lot going on in your life.” Giving someone back their time is priceless and unique. The best part of all is, that it’s a one size fits all option where no gift receipts are required.

This holiday season, we hope to inspire people everywhere to live their best, most empowered lives. Less adulting, less stress and more living.

Being able to gift someone the power of being able to put their entire life on autopilot with one call and have someone else shoulder all the stress of everyday living is indeed a gift and will likely be their favorite one of the season. If you’re interested in gifting the Gift of Time this year we’d love to make a difference in the lives of those on your list, just let us know how many gift cards you’d like and we will dash them right to your door.

No matter what the reason is for giving a gift, the best presents are those that come from the heart.

PS – Only 4 more Friday’s left until Christmas! 🙂
Warmest wishes from the InStyle team
