Six Last Minute Employee Appreciation Day Ideas


Sound the alarm! March 5, aka Employee Appreciation Day, is almost here! That’s why we’re offering up six quick and easy ways to show your super-stellar team members exactly how grateful you are for their positivity, loyalty, and hard work:


Words (and Love) Are All You Need

If time and/or budgets are tight right now, just using words is a highly effective appreciation tool. We love these affordable, fun, scratch-off cards full of compliments. Or celebrate your team with loud and clear Cheer Pins (on budget and on task!). No matter the application, simple words say it best. 


You can also try out our ePraise eCards here for FREE!


Cultivate Gratitude

Plants are the gifts that keep giving—a daily reminder to your employees that you see them and appreciate all they do. Options abound, and offer an affordable, uplifting way to say thanks. Check out this unforgettable Encouragement Set, or celebrate their awesomeness with this bright planter + seed set.


Drinks Are on You

Your team is full of vibrant superstars, so cheers to them! From coffee and travel mugs to wine tumblers and hydration-guaranteeing water bottles, keep the team refreshed and encouraged day after day.



Sweet treats are a perfect, economical way to celebrate Employee Appreciation Day. Here are a few of our favs with the sweetest of sentiments:

You’re Out of This World

You’re the Best of All Thyme

Thanks for Your Commit-mint


Go Big AND Go Home

Ready to show your work-from-home team what’s what? With our specially curated Delightly kits, you can really knock their socks off! Send a kit that speaks to the individual, like this stress-relieving Office Zen kit, so they each feel extra appreciated. We’re here to get your gift on their doorsteps lickety-split—choose from these quick-ship kits before 3 pm EST and we’ll ship it same-day!

In the Bag

You’ve got this employee appreciation thing down, so you know a good tote will be loved and used by everyone (and have them tote-ally singing your praises). Find one for each team member, or buy in bulk to save time and money.


A quick reminder: celebrate your team all the time! Employee appreciation shouldn’t just be here today, gone tomorrow. Every single day is an opportunity to convey your gratitude, especially if they’re still working from home.


Plan ahead and give your employees impactful appreciation boosts throughout the year. It’ll keep them encouraged, engaged, and happy campers. Surprise them. Be creative! And know that a little goes a long way.


So many ideas; so little time! We still have more brilliant options to give your team a memorable Employee Appreciation Day. Check out everything Baudville has to offer here, and discover what gratitude is all about.
