Hi there Apologies if I've posted this under the wrong talk category but wasn't sure which one to go for. I have a team and usually buy a bottle of wine for everyone at xmas. However the team has doubled in the last year (11 staff (2 male, 9 female)) and I have one DC and another on the way so this year is going to be really tight and I can't afford to spend as much per head. I am the only manager that buys presents for their team so I don't think I'm being mean but I have to be realistic and can't really afford to spend more than £50 in total for the team. Anyone got any tips or suggestions on what would make a nice present? What would you like/expect from your boss? Thank you in advance!
Thanks for tips everyone. I would love to organise pizza/drinks but am in an open paln office with 120 (mainly grumpy) people and some of my staff are also preg so can't do drinks at bar either. However I think some chocs and an xmas related token will do it. Just realised that Boots are doing 3 for 2 and that includes food stuff so might have a nosey tomorrow!
Our Morrisons had boxes of Thorntons chocolates at half price (£2.50 instead of £5) on Friday. They were restricted to 6 boxes per person but I guess you could go in twice . I've bought a couple as emergency Christmas presents .
