The holiday season is finally upon us! Bright and colorful lights decorate homes, Christmas music dances through local stores and restaurants, and holiday cheer can be seen everywhere you turn. As a business owner, you may even see your employees decorating their work stations and walking around with a bit more pep in their step!

But the one thing that can crush your employees’ cheerful holiday spirit is not showing your appreciation for all that they do for you. This appreciation can be shown with a traditional holiday bonus or gift card, but why not take advantage of the unique opportunities Tampa has to offer?

If you’re trying to think of creative holiday gifts for your employees, try these Tampa gifts on for size:
