So does your team.
To keep your team members performing at their best, appreciation becomes a vital activity that must happen every day, and especially during the holidays. Feeling appreciated contributes to the happiness of your entire team. Therefore, even small gestures, such as a gift card to the recipient's favorite store, can motivate someone to go the extra mile. Most importantly, though, thankful gestures put a smile on people's faces.

A recent online survey illustrates the importance of giving holiday gifts to staff members, by concluding that:
94 percent of respondents said a holiday gift from their employer would make them feel appreciated, valued, and happier at work.
Getting to know your team helps. By spending extra effort to find out what each team member likes allows you to give only the most desired gifts, and show genuine appreciation, as opposed to satisfying an expectation. Unwanted gifts rarely boost morale, and will defeat the gift-giving purpose.
