Ring in the new year with corporate gifts

The holidays are a time for reflection - both in our personal lives and in the workplace.

As we prepare to bid farewell to 2011, it might be wise to look back at the achievements and
challenges your company has faced over the last 12 months - and honour the individuals who have contributed their time and effort to your business this year.

At the end of the year, it is often customary for employers to give their staff members a corporate gift of some kind to thank them for their loyalty and reflect on a job well done.

Of course, this gift can vary - some companies give watches to senior executives, while smaller firms might reward hard work with a team lunch or gift vouchers for a local shop or cafe.

Another option to consider is a customised corporate gift, such as cufflinks.

These are a great way to link your token of thanks back to the core of your business - and can also be a subtle way to spread the message about your work.

Custom cufflinks can be designed with any organisation in mind and can feature your company colours or a specific logo.
