5 Simple But Special Ways to Celebrate Employee Birthdays

There’s a difference between going all out and making your team feel important when it matters most.

Question: How can you streamline celebrating employee birthdays while still making the team member feel special?

Hold Monthly Parties but Give Individual Gifts

"For companies that are more time or budget conscious, consider celebrating employee birthdays on a monthly basis. While you may only have one cake, you can celebrate their individual value by giving individual gifts, verbal recognition for the strengths they bring to the team, etc."


Create Your Own Birthday Tradition

"Our company is all about a superfood called moringa. For our employee birthdays, one person volunteers to make a moringa cake for that person and we all sign a card. It adds a personal touch that everyone loves."


Give Something Truly Unique to Them

"At AlignedSigns.com we love birthdays because it’s a time when we can truly celebrate the uniqueness of the individual. So, we give the team member the option to select an astrology report we offer (natal/birth chart, numerology or couples report) they want to receive, specifically about them. It adds a personal touch and allows us to get to know them a little better."


Ask What's Meaningful to Them

"When bringing on new team members, we ask questions about how they like to celebrate major milestones during the onboarding process. Once we know their preferences, it's much easier to give memorable and meaningful gifts that show how much we value their work."


Add a Personal Touch

"A birthday celebration doesn't need to be lavish or take a bunch of time out of the workday to be memorable. Something as simple as taking the employee to their favorite restaurant for lunch can go a long way towards making them feel appreciated. Not only is it simple and cost-effective, it shows you actually pay attention to them as a person."
