If hiring employees is hard, retaining them is even harder. Offering them a good compensation package and benefits might seem the easiest way to retain them, but it often takes more than that. Cultivate the culture of employee appreciation and celebrate their achievement to keep them happy and loyal to your organization.

Give them customized gifts during these events to make them feel even more appreciated. We have listed some common and popular customized gift ideas for these events below. Let’s take a look.

Branded Apparel

Branded apparel, such as shirts, t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, socks, and caps are great customized gifts. Pick your company’s brand colors or a lighter version of the shade, and add the logo, and a nice slogan to create your branded apparel. You can use them for events, or give custom ones to different departments. It will add a stylish touch to their apparel and create a sense of unity among the employees.

Custom Trophy

If you organize an employee of the month event or appreciate employees who excel in different categories, such as best in sales or best innovator, then you should design custom trophies for them. Engrave the employee’s name, achievement, and year of achievement. Pick high-quality materials for the trophy so that they can preserve it for many years.

Personalized Desk Accessories

Employees work with desk accessories every day. Nameplates, mouse pads, calendars, and desk organizers are accessories that you can easily personalize. You can choose the color to be your company brand colors and add your logo. Mouse pads can have unique graphics or motivational quotes on them. These small gifts make your employees happy and appreciated.

Engraved Watches

Engraved watches can be great gifts for an employee’s work anniversary celebration. You can engrave them with their names and the number of years served. Pick high-quality watches. Even if they stop working, the employee can preserve them as keepsakes for many years.

Customized Notebooks and Pens

Employees use notebooks and pens every day in the office. So customized notebooks and pens can be great gifts for them. You can also include them in the employee welcome kit or the goodie pack celebrating their achievements. Customizing notebooks and pens is easy. But you have more chances of creating a unique notebook design than a pen design because pens don’t have as much surface space. However, expensive customized pens can be a good gift for employee appreciation or work anniversary events.

Personalized Coffee Mugs

Coffee mugs are a cheaper yet versatile gift option that is highly customizable. You can print the employee’s name, designation, and achievement on the surface. Mugs come in various colors and sizes, so you can easily choose the one that goes with your company branding. This option is also highly functional, and the employees can use it every day.

Custom Gift Baskets

You can arrange a custom gift basket for celebrating achievements for short-term or impermanent events – such as a project or a sales target after a product launch. You can add gourmet treats, branded merchandise, and a custom thank you card. You can also add holiday tickets, enrollment documentation to a personal development program, or simply a certificate of increment to make the basket even more personalized.

Customized Tech Accessories

Tech gadgets have become a part and parcel of our lives. You can customize tech accessories such as laptop sleeves, phone covers and stands, or USB drives with the company logo, and give them as a gift to your employees.

Engraved Photo Frames

Although photo frames aren’t something your employees use in the office every day, many of them keep photos of their loved ones on their desks. You can create engraved photo frames with the company logo, and give them as a gift during special occasions, such as an employee’s birthday, or the new year. For performance awards, you can print the picture and engrave a frame with their name, role, achievement, and year of the achievement, and give them the whole frame as a gift. They can keep it on their desk or take it home.

Custom Award Certificate

And finally, you can give custom award certificates to your employees who are great performers. They are one of the most customized items ordered by organizations. There are thousands of designs to choose from, so pick a color and design for the certificates that go with your company branding. Add the employee’s name, achievement, and year of achievement, and present them with the certificate when announcing their achievement with the rest of the workforce.


Giving occasional gifts to your employees can make them feel more appreciated and increase their sense of belongingness. It can also enhance their engagement in the workplace and make them more focused. Customized gifts have a touch of uniqueness and personalization, so they make employees much happier than generic gifts. But remember to choose good-quality materials for the items so that they look and feel good and the employees can preserve them for many years
