A plant makes a brilliant gift for any occasion, and not just for your typical Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries; plants make tremendous ‘well done’ presents too! At a time of year where many employers are saying thank you to those that make their business work, we’d encourage the consideration of plants as staff rewards - and we’ve got just the right candidates for your gift-giving plan.
Why give a plant as a corporate gift?
Even with a plethora of options available to you when it comes to gifts for employees, we’ll always advocate for plant gifts above the rest. Why? Because they really do keep on giving! These are some other reasons why we believe giving plants as a corporate gift is a fantastic thing to do:
Chocolate, champagne, and even those fancy hampers are gone in an instant in the grand scheme of things. These fleeting gifts have nothing on the longevity of a plant, which indicate that you appreciate the hard work of your staff all year round, not just on special occasions.
They improve employee wellbeing
From their credentials as air purifiers, to being mood lifters and productivity boosters, plants have such positive effects on us as human beings that they’re a sensible, thoughtful choice of gift.
They’re good value
Short-lived gifts such as the ones we mentioned earlier leave no trace of the money you’ve spent, but a plant gives you excellent value for money in the form of a gift that can last in the home or garden of your staff members.
What are the best plants to give as staff rewards?
Whether you’re saying well done for a particular display of teamwork, or you’re looking for staff gifts for Christmas, these options are all gifts that provide greenery and beauty throughout the year:
A plant gift is elevated by a special container, which is what makes these cyclamen planters the ideal gift. Displayed in a rustic metal planter and available in red, pink or white, these vividly-coloured cyclamens are an easy way to brighten even the smallest of both indoor and outdoor spaces, such as a cool windowsill or a doorstep.
Dwarf banana plant
The dwarf banana plant comes with bags of personality, with wide foliage that gives it a tropical look. Its tolerance of low light makes it a plant that can thrive at home, in the office, or even on a sheltered patio. Dwarf banana plants grow quickly, so they’re a super satisfying gift to give that could just bring with it a brand new passion for plant care amongst your team.
For the trendy amongst your employees, hanging plants are definitely in when it comes to home design, and this Satin Pothos looks just beautiful suspended from a hanging basket or planter. Indoors, they’re famed for their air purification, but wherever they’re put, their smooth, dappled, trailing foliage makes it an unusual gift that lasts all year round.
We’re willing to bet that tea is a big deal in your workplace - so how about growing your own? Tea plants are a quirky gift to give your staff, with the opportunity to harvest and dry the leaves to make tasty tea. Not only are these hardy plants functional, but they provide a bit of winter beauty too, with flowers that appear in the colder months to enjoy looking at while you enjoy your cuppa.
If you suspect that members of your team may be new to plant parenthood, a spider plant is the perfect way to introduce them to green-fingered life.
Not only do they look pretty funky wherever you put them (including those work-from-home areas), they’re fun to grow too, as their propensity for spawning ‘plantlets’ means there’ll be a ready supply of baby spider plants in future.
