2021 Holiday Gift Guide: 9 Ideas to Show Staff Appreciation

It is that time of the year again. When all should be showing appreciation of the efforts of others by giving gifts and presents. It is also a time to reflect on the past year and give thanks for a hopefully kinder and more loving world. Christmas should be the best time of the year for all.

In the Christmas spirit of Tech Talk, this is a fun time for me to step back for a moment from all the wires and systems, and pick out some fun items that one can give to their peers, boss, and employees. As a manager or owner, your techs have endured another year of post-COVID-19 pandemic, and have kept your customers happy. This is the time to show gratitude for, as they used to say in the Navy, “Bravo Zulu,” a job well done.

Shoppers are in luck, as Black Friday deals have started sooner than ever this year — so get shopping!

Let’s not waste any time and get into some gift items I have selected for this year’s tech shopping list.
