Employee Holiday Gift Guide That ~Just Might~ Save 2020


Say what? It’s October? 2020 has blown by, literally. In just a short couple of months we will be celebrating the holiday season which ultimately leads to the question, “What do I send out as Holiday gifts?” This year poses an added level or trickiness, being that most employees now are working remote. Whether your team is working from home, assisting behind the scenes or bravely helping others on the frontline, they deserve recognition for their dedication during this crazy year of 2020.

The perfect gift is always welcomed, and not just at the holidays. It’s clear companies are setting work-from-home employee engagement at the top of their list in 2020, due to the Coronavirus changing the way we communicate. It is vital to keep staff engaged, productive and also feeling appreciated. With that being said, giving out the right gift can be complicated. You don’t want to be the person who gives out gift cards, it’s too generic and frankly, overdone. You also don’t want to be the one who gives people a gift they will never use. It is a great idea to go for a little customization while maintaining thoughtfulness and usability, so that those receiving your gift can make use of it.

This is where we come in. From customized packaging to branded merchandise, we got you covered. The holiday season is already stressful enough, let us help you out. Make sure to visit our shop for a complete list of gift ideas.


Below are our top employee holiday gift ideas for 2020.


Bundle Up 

The Holiday season is synonymous with the colder weather. Branded jackets, vests, and coats are a fantastic and stylish way to take care of the members on your team.  Personalized branded items like fleeces, hoodies, socks, and even comfy PJ’s can make a great and lasting impression, and keep everyone warm and toasty.

 Let Them Relax

A guaranteed set that no one will be complaining about is one that involves a spa night. Everyone deserves a little R&R, especially around the holidays. 2020 has been a hell of a year, and letting your employees know it’s okay to take a little “Me” time is vital. Increase the “wow” factor by creating custom packaging for the set.

Warm & Cozy

Weighted blankets are a great gift to give as a holiday gift! Not only are they cozy, they provide several health benefits. The list of pros include a decrease in anxiety, boost in mood, and assist in helping you fall asleep faster, for longer. Not only will you help keep your staff cozy this winter season, but you will also sleep easy knowing they are too.

New Year’s Resolution 

Why not ring in the new year along with your team by setting a fitness goal. Fitness watches are a great way to track your steps, breathing, and heart rate. You can also connect your phone to always stay in the loop with the office.

Stay Healthy & Well

Colder months call for the cold and flu season (make sure to get that flu shot!). Humidifiers are super helpful when treating dryness of the skin, nose, throat, and lips. They can also ease some of the symptoms brought on by the flu or the common cold. The USB humidifier can be easily accessed at your desk while you work from home.

Warm from Head to Toe

While we’ve been stuck at home our business casual attire has gotten more and more casual. Let’s face it, slippers are this year’s hottest accessory. With so many options to show personality, functionality, and durability you will be sure to find the right pair with Brand Aid’s help!

They’ll be in “Glove”

Touch screen capable gloves are the only thing saving you from a bad autocorrect during the winter. Don’t let your employees make that mistake. With so many colors to choose from you are sure to find the best pair for your staff.

Mini Jam Sesh

An instant way to boost serotonin levels is to jam out to your favorite tunes. Whether that looks like a one man rockstar show or a quiet little air guitar, music is proven to improve your productivity and creativity. Everyone working from home right now needs that boost.

“Thanks a Latte”

Keep your work from home employees energized throughout the day by gifting them with a mug warmer. You’re guaranteed a hot sip each and every time. This is what your team wants, this is what your team deserves.
