How to Give a Gift

Kent Shaffer —  May 18, 2006

Gifts can be a very powerful thing. They are a great way to show your staff and volunteers that you care about them. They also add important significance to the relationship you have with your workers. The other day, Guy Kawasaki highlighted an excellent post by Whirled Events on 10 steps to giving gifts. Some steps that I particularly enjoyed were:

  • Take Notes – Pay attention to your staff and volunteers. Their comments can provide valuable clues to being able to get them a meaningful gift.
  • Present Your Gift Well – A great gift is no longer great with poor packaging.
  • Include a Handwritten Note – In this digital world, handwriting speaks volumes.

If you appreciate the people who make your ministry possible, learn how to give a gift.
