The inevitable end-of-year slump is officially here. This is perhaps the toughest time to stay motivated. With the current economic situation, bonuses may be forfeit. Some people have lost their jobs.

Holiday cheer may seem to abound in malls and commercial districts, but how many employees’ morale and motivation are at a peak? When was the last time you really thanked a person?

You don’t need an extravagant office party, or expensive gifts either. You can thank people for their contributions meaningfully in many ways. These are some suggestions:

  • The simple things count.The best gifts are your time and empathy. Show someone that you know how to listen by doing something like buying them a (tastefully) humorous or witty token that can be an inside joke. It will be a reminder of the relationship you share when they look at it, or when someone else asks about its significance.
  • A personal touch is the sincerest.Flowers, an eye-catching notebook, or a calendar bought from a favourite charity or non-profit organisation show that you have taken the time to get to know someone.
  • Thank you cards.Sometimes the simplest and most effective way to thank someone is a card. This is both inexpensive and thoughtful. Ensure your message is earnest, well-thought-out, and not generic.
  • Be considerate in your choices.If you are thinking about presenting someone with a gift, be respectful and understanding by considering their personality. This shows them you understand what they want.

Expressing your appreciation is one of the best ways to foster and maintain relationships, and to encourage people to perform to the best of their ability. Saying “thank you”, and meaning it, is a powerful motivator in a world where people can feel alone, ignored, and unappreciated. Don’t underestimate it.
