Important Criteria for Choosing Gifts For Employee Anniversaries

How often do you want to celebrate employee anniversaries?

Although it is nice to recognize employment anniversaries on a yearly basis, it can become very expensive to find a unique gift for each year they are employed. You might want to consider gifting a handwritten note or card on some years while celebrating major milestones with a larger gift.

The generally accepted rule of thumb is to offer a token of appreciation at the first year, the third year, the fifth year, and then every five years. In theory, the monetary value and type of gift should increase with each milestone. You may start with a card and keychain for a first year recognition but then increase the value of the gift each year such as offering a luxury candle and gift card at their five year mark.

What types of gifts work better for different employees?

If you know your employee well, which is typical after 5+ years of service, then finding an appropriate gift may come naturally to you. If it’s an earlier employment anniversary or you don’t know the employee on a personal level, then consider a more gender neutral gift that could be generically useful such as a coffee mug or gift card.

As far as the amount of money you should spend on an employee anniversary gift, it really depends on your budget and size of your company. The bottom line is that company anniversary gifts for employees should be consistent across the board. What you spend on one person’s five year or ten year anniversary gift should be the same for someone else. It might be helpful to create an employee anniversary gift program that you can pull gifts from or have a record of the types of gifts you have given previously.

General Tips on Employee Anniversary Gifts

  • Try to include a personalized thank you note no matter what gift you’re giving or year of employment you’re celebrating. It will add a personalized touch that will be appreciated and remembered.
  • When possible, gift gender neutral gifts. This would ensure it would be more likely used or if not could be used by someone in the giftee’s family or friends circle.
  • Set up a program and send automated reminders for employee anniversaries. This will ensure that no employee is left out and that your gifts are consistent across the board.
  • Buying online helps you save time, but don’t forget to get buy in from their teammates. Finding a gift that is personal to them can add a nice touch to the gift.
