Employee gift ideas and company swag

When it comes to boosting employee morale and creating a sense of belonging, few things are as effective as company swag.

But what exactly is company swag? In a nutshell, it’s branded merchandise given to employees as gifts, often emblazoned with the company logo and colours. These items can range from practical office supplies to fun, unique gifts.

Company swag is perfect for new employee onboarding, recognising achievements, celebrating company milestones, or even at team-building events and conferences. Below are just some ideas you can use for your company swag. To browse more ideas, take a look at our range of online promo catalogues for inspiration.

Are employee gifts tax deductible?

One question that often comes up is whether employee gifts are tax deductible. In Australia, the answer is generally yes, but with some conditions. Gifts that are considered ‘minor benefits’ (less than $300) are usually tax deductible and exempt from Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT). However, it’s always a good idea to check with your accountant or tax advisor to ensure you’re compliant with the latest regulations.

Branded merchandise and thoughtful employee gifts can make a significant impact on morale and company culture. By choosing practical, high-quality items and adding a personal touch, you show your employees that they are valued and appreciated. Remember, a small token of appreciation can go a long way in creating a positive and productive workplace.
