A lot of companies buy their employees gifts for the Holidays. Arianna Huffington has the right idea-she normally buys her employees a sweater every year and they try them on and share pictures. It really gets the office into the festive spirit!
Custom Ugly Sweaters are a great idea for employee gifts. You can keep the message fun and simple and add your logo to make them branded. The great thing about giving a custom ugly sweater to employees is that everyone will be gifted the same and feel as valued as each other. The gifts can be worn at ugly sweater parties in the office or if there are no parties, they can be worn at an ugly sweater day at the office. This is a great time to fundraise too for a charity for the Holidays.
When designing a custom ugly sweater for employees, it's best to keep it light and fun, nothing too serious! Why not opt for some dancing penguins on an ice skating rink or polar bears fighting in the snow? To make it brand specific, you can add the company name to your custom ugly sweater. Another idea is to add the year so it can also be a little keepsake for the employee.
As you'll be ordering the same custom ugly sweater for all your employees, it's best to pick a color that works for everyone. Like blue. Or red. Or navy. You may have brand colors that you want to use-that's perfect. Choose any color you like!
This is tricky when it comes to selecting sizes. When selecting sizes for custom ugly sweaters, there will be a lot of guesswork involved. As they are normally a surprise, you won't be able to ask the employee what size they'll like. We can help and give guidance when it comes to sizes. If in doubt, it's always best to go up a size as because they are custom ugly sweaters, people love to wear them loose!
