According to Lands’ End’s 2013 Holiday Business Gift survey, 73 percent of employers who purchase gifts for employees plan on spending around $50. Although 42 percent of those surveyed prefer to give those employees apparel (often company logo’d items), 45 percent of employees prefer to receive a holiday cash bonus.

Another survey compiled by Glassdoor found that 73 percent of employees hoped for a bonus in cash, and 36 percent would take extra time off in addition to their hard-earned vacation days.

It seems that most employees would be happy with compensation in addition to their current package. And though it wouldn’t cost a company much to award an extra day of paid leave, coughing up cash for a bonus might not fit into the already-tight budget.

In that case, do you give gift cards? A nice food basket? A ham? Most employees would prefer something with a bit more staying power. Something useful that they may not have bought for themselves. In that vein of thinking, we’ve come up with a list of seven much-appreciated gift ideas for IT managers to give their irreplaceable employees.
