Christmas time is around the corner. This means the most caring bosses are already coming up with ways to show appreciation for their hard-working employees.

If you don’t have the budget for Christmas bonuses or vacation time, a personalized gift is a thoughtful replacement which shows that you care about your staff.

Try not to rely on fail-safes like gift cards or lottery tickets. Instead, consider a useful and high-quality gift that anyone would appreciate.

If your team is small enough that you can shop for individuals, then this gives you an even better chance to pin down a personal gift that shows you care.

However you plan to go about your shopping, you can start right here.

We’ve picked out a handful of thoughtful and practical gifts that range from safe corporate thank-you gifts to more personalized presents with some attitude.
