What Makes a Great Recognition Gift Box?

Imagine this: you’ve been working hard at your job for a while. Maybe you’re coming up on a work anniversary or milestone, or maybe you’ve just achieved something you’ve been working towards for a while. When the time comes, instead of a simple certificate, you’re handed a creative, colorful box.

What would you want to be in that box?

A recognition gift box can be a special way to show appreciation for employees’ milestones and achievements. It feels more personal and special than something simpler like a certificate or announcement. Like any gift, it can make the recipient feel truly appreciated because the giver put in the time and effort to go beyond the bare minimum – which is why it can be such a great tool for employers to demonstrate how much they value their employees.

To create a great gift recognition box, start with the basics: what’s actually in the box? First, consider what type of gift would fit the occasion. Is there anything unique about the achievement that lends itself to a particular gift item? Quality gifts that are useful are always a good choice, especially if the gift relates to the achievement somehow. A recognition box should also have a degree of prestige somehow, setting it apart from gifts you might give for other occasions, like onboarding.

In addition to choosing a gift that feels special in and of itself, a recognition gift box should include a personalized element that communicates value and appreciation to the individual. Include the recipient’s name, along with a note or card with a personal message that recognizes the occasion and the individual in a specific way. The gift might also include a personal note from the recipient’s manager or even a higher-up leader to thank them for their great work.

Remember: a robust, thoughtful recognition program can have long-term positive effects. Organizations with recognition programs report 14% higher employee productivity, performance, and engagement, compared to companies without recognition programs.

The last step to creating a memorable recognition gift box is the presentation – the box itself. Opening a gift box is just fun, whether you’re a kid on your birthday or a professional earning workplace recognition.
