Christmas can be a very busy time in business, so it’s important to keep your employees focused and motivated right up to the big day. It’s therefore a good time to set up an incentive programme with a selection of rewards on offer that can help your staff achieve (and maintain) a high performance.

At Christmas your incentive rewards can mean so much more to your employees, as they can be perceived in different ways. As the festive season is a time for giving, for instance, it’s an ideal opportunity to include corporate Christmas gifts in your incentives programme that reward your staff and fit with the spirit of the season.

Your incentive rewards can also make great corporate Christmas gift ideas that staff can give as presents to their loved ones. You could even choose corporate gifts that will help to make their Christmas that bit more special, like luxury food or drink, which they can share with their family and friends.

There are many types of rewards to choose from, each with their own benefits, from experiences to health and beauty to stocking fillers. We’ve listed the top corporate Christmas gifts that you should consider including in your incentives programme this year.
