How to Show your Employees You Appreciate Them

footer-590pxCompanies all over Albuquerque have the chance to show their employees, how much they appreciate them on Friday March 6th. Ever since 1995, when the first ever National Employee Appreciation Day was observed, the first Friday of March has been recognized as the official day on which bosses throughout the country can express their appreciation for the employees who make companies what they are. Without the hard working employees whose efforts often go unrecognized, most companies wouldn’t be as successful as they are.

We decided to help employers recognize the contribution their employees make to the company, so we came up with some suggestions to help bosses who may be looking for gifts for their workers.

Croton Plant

Croton Plant

If your workplace has plenty of light, there is no better way to brighten an employee’s office than with a Croton Plant. This spectacular plant has very large leaves. As long as the plant grows in a sunny enough location, the entire workplace can enjoy the unique color combinations seen in the variegated leaves. Shiny dark green leaves are mottled with yellow, while other leaves combine bright yellow and red, or deep red and green. This plant truly brings the outside atmosphere right into the office.

Pothos is a very easy plant to grow. It doesn’t require much care, and it can grow in any environment. Best of all, this plant thrives in areas where there is little to no daylight at all. Pothos is often confused with Philodendron, the plant with small heart-shaped dark green leaves. One of the things people love most about this plant is the fact that you can take cuttings from it, and you can root the cuttings quickly in water. Place this plant on the floor, on a desk or table, or hang it from a hook in the ceiling. It is a spectacular hanging plant.

Add a splash of color and a tropical flair to the office with this Bromeliad Plant. Bromeliads are found in tropical rainforests, but your office will perk up and feel like a relaxing oasis with this spectacularly showy plant. Bromeliads are characterized by heir shallow roots, interesting leaves, and a flower that grows from the center of the plant. Pineapple is probably the most familiar bromeliad.

This year, show your employees how much you appreciate them. Give them a fun, colorful, easy-to-care for, plant. You’ll purify the office air and help your employees focus and concentrate in the process.

Sending the Ultimate Thank You

TY2We often spend a lot of time stressing over the gift giving season — who to get what and such. You aren’t alone either as others all over are too looking for that gift that is just a perfect fit yet is not always easily found.

Though when you do find it, you know it and after that nothing is really better than the surprised expression a thoughtful gift leaves on a loved one’s face.

So what happens when you unwrap one such present? It is bound to happen at least once every year. That one present that tugs on your heart just a little harder than the others — the one that may just bring a tear to your eyes is one that finds its place a little closer to your heart than the others. So what do you do with that one special gift?TY1

The Importance of a Thank You

Big or small, any gift you get deserves a thank you. Whether you say it once, send a card, or write out a sentimental letter explaining how much you love it, when you get a gift it is important to say thank you. Now though we aren’t talking about just any gift — we are talking about that one very special gift and with these we believe that saying thank you is only the beginning.

The Thank You Gift

While you won’t find yourself moved to do this for every gift, but like we said there might be just the one. With that one gift, you should not only be openly expressive of your thanks but should also do a little more for the person at a later time.

Below we have prepared a list of thoughtful thank you ideas that are sure to delight:

  • Flowers: After all, we are a florist and with our great holiday sales going on, there isn’t a better time to give thanks with flowers. Take any one of our handpicked and designed bouquets or arrangements and you will surely pleasantly surprise anyone with your thank you.
  • Wine: There is just something about the holidays and wine that goes together. If you want to especially thank someone this holiday season, why not try wine or maybe even invite them to a tasting? Be sure that they actually like wine first of course.
  • Craft: A craft is an inexpensive and personal way to say thanks to anyone. Not to mention that the options for this choice are literally endless.
  • Gift Basket: A gift basket is also a generous way to say thank you for that special gift.
  • Handwritten Note: In the digital age of emails, texts, and posts, getting a handwritten card says you are truly thankful because you took the time to compose something on paper.TY3

Giving thanks this holiday season is one of the best gifs you can give to loved ones!
