It’s important to remember that showing your appreciation doesn’t have to be complicated, or even expensive. You just need to make sure you do it.

3 easy ways to show your employees some appreciation and love:
Give your employees physical gifts such as gift cards.
Provide lunch for the office, just because.
Take the team out for some fun team bonding.
You should also regularly tell your employees how much you appreciate them - in meetings when you run into them in the hallway, every Friday, whatever works best for you. Just make sure they know you care.
When was the last time you showed your appreciation?
