Product Spotlight - Products for New Employee Gift Sets 


According to studies, workers who feel valued early on in their employment tend to stay longer and are more loyal to their company.  What better way to show appreciation for new employees than to give them a gift set upon their hire?  Just as sending gifts to a client strengthens the relationship, gifting employees gives them the incentive to work harder and help the business grow.  

For Starters 

For basic gift sets, the most essential item is a Welcome card.  This card should congratulate the person on the new job, briefly explain the company's goals and how the new employee fits into those plans.  Employers might include a retail or restaurant gift card and stationary with the new employee's name and the business' name on it.  Pens with the company's logo and a motivational message (ie. "You Got This!") also make good gifts.  

The Usual Favorites  

If employers want to add more to the gift sets, they should consider the following:

  • Clothes- New employees usually want to show their company pride, so gift them branded t-shirts, socks, caps, and sweatshirts.
  • Beauty products- Scented candles and bars of soap should please most workers.
  • Food- A box of chocolates, popcorn and cookies are popular items
  • Drink- Either a tea set or coffee mug with a coffee set would be appreciated.  For companies with bigger budgets, consider a bottle of champagne or wine.

Have Gifts Fit The Job  

When sending a gift set, it helps to have the items match the new worker's job functions.  For example, an employee who spends most of the time at an office or home desk should receive items such as screen wipes for smartphones, flash drives, and wireless headsets.  If an employee needs to travel often, branded drawstring bags, laptop cases, and tumblers are good ideas.
