Seamless holiday recognition requires thoughtful gifts and an early start
July is typically a time reserved for weekend barbecues, beach days, and family getaways. Aside from the occasional “Christmas in July” sale, the holidays are a distant thought, and the focus is on relaxing and recharging. But with the slower pace and quieter workdays, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your holiday recognition plan with thoughtful gifts.
Of course, it feels early to discuss December incentives – we’re only halfway through the year. But given continued supply chain snarls and inflation-related economic instability, foresight is necessary to ensure seamless, on-time delivery.

Even more important, however, is what the holidays represent for you, your business, and your employees. Be it at home or in the office, with family or coworkers, your team members all observe meaningful traditions around the holidays. Those traditions are the result of ideas, customs, and best practices built up over time. And giving can be just as exciting and empowering as receiving – the corporate incentives your workers expect hold great value, especially when they’re selected with care and they serve a purpose. Choosing these tangible rewards also requires time. Thus, to make the holidays “a season of traditions, a season of rewards”, it takes effort, planning, and a strong head start.
Corporate incentives for every interest & every holiday celebration
No matter the interests and passions of your team, or their favorite seasonal traditions, a well-intentioned gift can communicate your appreciation for their hard work, reinforce their connection to the business, and create unforgettable holiday memories. Discover corporate incentives for all your employees’ interests and holiday celebrations.
Incentive gifts with cutting-edge technology
Nothing impresses gift recipients like incentive gifts that are sleekly designed and that feature innovative tech. For audiophiles, Bose’s industry-leading Bluetooth® speakers and headphones bring astonishing sound to their favorite tunes. Everyone can enjoy nostalgic holiday classics with the Portable Home Speaker, which pumps out 360 degrees of sound regardless of where you listen. The QuietComfort® 45 noise-cancelling headphones fade out the sounds of the world for a singular, individual listening experience.
But cutting-edge products aren’t only for listening enjoyment – Hyperice’s percussive massage devices use innovative technology to aid better workout recovery and improved mobility. Take for instance the travel-friendly Hypervolt 2 Pro, whose lightweight design and 3-hour battery life make massage therapy possible anywhere you go.
Tangible rewards offering better health & wellness
Help employees jumpstart their fitness resolutions with tangible rewards designed for a sound mind and body. Premium bundles like Body-Solid’s 3 Pack Tool Package can round out a home gym setup with the essentials, including a yoga mat, resistance tubes, and exercise ball. Fitness fanatics will appreciate advanced additions like Lifeline’s Hex Rubber Dumbbell Set or a Flat Weight Bench. And novice or expert, everyone can benefit from a post-workout massage in Human Touch’s Wholebody 7.1 massage chair.
Stylish travel gifts
Some of your team members may use the holidays to get away, either to far-flung destinations or nearby hidden gems. Help them take off in style with travel gifts from Briggs & Riley’s like the Sympatico 2.0 Large Expandable Spinner for long jaunts – featuring the brand’s patented CX® system expands the case for 25% more packing space – or a ZDX Large Travel Duffle for all the essentials on shorter trips. Style-conscious travelers can keep accessories and toiletries organized in one of Ricardo Beverly Hills’ snake-embossed Cairo Louise Travel Cases. And keep them hydrated all along the way with Corkcicle’s All Day Hydration bundle, which includes a 24-ounce tumbler and 25-ounce canteen.
Encourage a fun-filled holiday break with family-friendly, recreation incentives. With Zume’s Pickleball Set, family, friends, and neighbors aged 8 and up can easily join in. Or, they can embrace a new favorite like fowling – Triumph Sports’ Fowling Game Set includes everything needed to get a game going in minutes. If employees are lucky enough to spend the holidays near the water, RAVE Sports’ Aqua Jump Eclipse 200 Water Trampoline or Apollo Lounge Pool Float can be put to great use.
Fashion-forward apparel gifts
The holidays are a great time to help employees refresh their wardrobes with apparel gifts. Costa sunglasses like the Blackfin PRO and Salina are functional, heavy-duty, and fashionable with 100% UV light blockage and polarization. On the water and in the sun, they’re ideal companions. Office fashionistas will love the flash and whimsy of the All Day Sunshine Dot Large Tote from kate spade new york. And for a fashion choice with a tech edge, the Bose Frames Tenor boast premium craftsmanship and Open Ear Audio™ technology for an unparalleled listening experience.
Whether team members plan on whipping up batches of holiday cookies or tackling more complex fare, home goods are a great addition to any kitchen. Cangshan’s 14-Piece TS Series DENALI Magnetic Knife Block Set covers every need, including slicing, paring, and peeling. Made In’s 8”, 10”, and 12” Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pans bring French culinary excellence to chefs of all skill levels. And Vinturi’s Rechargeable Wine Opener makes it easy to pop corks and keep glasses full while dishes come together.
