How to Put Together a Wellness Gift for Employees

Get ideas and free tools to put together wellness-themed “Thank You” gifts

Although we all know it, sometimes we overlook the value of self-care while we’re focused on other priorities. We all want to work harder but we can lose sight of how important it can be to just stop for a moment and relax.

According to a study on how self-care may improve mental health, it’s becoming more clear the effect that self-care, or the lack thereof, can have on your mood. Small things like walks, meditation and fresh food can help keep up your spirits.

That’s why we’ve come up with ten easy ideas to help you create wellness-themed “Thank You” gifts for your employees. These are a great way to give them a break and unwind.

Add your own personal touch to a variety of templates with our free design software (Avery Design and Print Online). You can then print everything yourself or take a break and have our staff of experts print your projects for you with our WePrint® service.
