Employee Appreciation Gifts to Recognize and Motivate Top Talent

Your staff deserves to be recognized for great work. So whether you are looking for Employee Appreciation Day ideas or ways of recognizing your employees year-round, American Express® Business Gift Cards are flexible gifts that are appropriate for every employee.

Looking for Employee Appreciation ideas? American Express Business Gift Cards allow their recipients to get what they really want. Rather than guess, let your employees use their Gift Card for an item or experience they will love. They won’t feel pressure to use the Gift Card right away – they can spend when they want because funds on American Express Business Gift Cards do not expire. Plus, they may be replaceable if the Gift Card is lost or stolen.1

Our Business Gift Cards come in a wide variety of designs so you can ensure your gift sends the right message. Try a custom message Card, which can be personalized with a few thoughtful words to express your appreciation.

American Express Business Gift Cards: The Gifts that Stand Out
  • Can be used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express Cards are accepted
  • Safer than cash because the funds can be replaced if lost or stolen*
  • Choose from a variety of designs appropriate for the holidays

Not just for Employee Appreciation Day
While Employee Appreciation Day falls on the first Friday in March, anytime your staff goes above and beyond is a good opportunity to recognize excellent work with employee appreciation gifts. Here are some easy to implement employee appreciation ideas that work year-round:

  • Incorporate a short “MVP” award ceremony into your weekly or monthly meetings.
  • Surprise staff with on-the-fly awards recognizing individuals who exhibit great team work or customer focus.
  • Celebrate work anniversaries or important personal milestones like graduations, births or weddings.
  • Share in the celebration of major holidays with gifts to moms on Mother’s Day or dads on Father’s Day.
