As a business owner, you understand the importance of making a great first impression on your new hires. Employee onboarding is a critical part of any successful business, and choosing the perfect gift box for your new employees is a great way to kick off the process on the right foot. In this blog post, we'll explore some tips for choosing the perfect gift box for employee onboarding.

  1. Consider Your Budget

Before you start selecting gift boxes, consider your budget. You don't want to overspend on gift boxes and neglect other important parts of your onboarding process. Determine how much you're willing to spend on each gift box, and find options that fit within your budget. Check out our Employee Appreciation gift boxes for inspiration. 

  1. Think About Your Company Culture

Your company culture is an essential part of your brand identity, and it's important to reflect it in the gifts you give to your new hires. Consider your company's values and mission statement and select gift boxes that align with them. If your company values sustainability, for example, you might want to choose gift boxes made from eco-friendly materials. 

  1. Personalise the Gift Boxes

Personalisation is key when it comes to making your new hires feel welcome and appreciated. Consider adding personalised notes or branded items, like notebooks or pens, to the gift boxes. This will show your new hires that you've put thought and effort into their welcome packages. Check out our Branded Gifts page to find out more about our bespoke gift boxes.

  1. Consider the Contents of the Gift Box

Think about the items you want to include in the gift boxes. You want to choose items that are useful, practical, and reflect your company culture. Consider including branded items, like t-shirts or notebooks, as well as yummy items like handmade Irish chocolate.

  1. Always Opt For Quality Over Quantity

It's important to remember that quality matters more than quantity when it comes to gift boxes. Rather than filling the gift box with lots of low-quality items, opt for a smaller selection of high-quality, handmade gifts. Your new hires will appreciate receiving items that are useful, durable, and long-lasting, even if there are fewer of them. High-quality items also reflect positively on your company's brand and values, and can help create a lasting impression on your new employees. By selecting fewer items of higher quality, you'll ensure that your gift boxes are well-received and appreciated by your new hires.

In conclusion, choosing the perfect gift box for employee onboarding requires thought, effort, and attention to detail. By considering your budget, your company culture, personalising the gift boxes, selecting useful and practical items, and checking the quality of the gifts, you'll create a great first impression on your new hires and set the stage for a successful onboarding process.
