It is the holiday season and I am looking for creative ways to show my appreciation to my team without going too overboard with the gifts. Any suggestions on gifts that are affordable but appreciated?

Startups take a toll on everyone including the spouses/partners and children of your employees. I try to focus on gifts that not only the employee can enjoy, but their partner and children too. Letting their families know that you appreciate their sacrifices goes a long way. That can range from a catered meal at home or month of meals delivered to an overnight at a local hotel to tickets to a concert.  Even something as simple as "hire a sitter and take your spouse out for a great meal and send me the bill" works well.

We give Amex gift cards to help with the holiday gift purchases - I know its not super sexy or personal or exciting, but I've found that people appreciate that they can actually purchase what they really want rather or need. So many times, gifts that we think are great are just Ok to the receiver.
