This may be just me, but rather than gifts, I preferred my employees just give me a card with some genuine, meaningful, honest thoughts written inside.

I was fortunate to have mostly very good relationships with my employees, so what made me smile is when they'd take 30 minutes one night to sit down and put pen to paper and express what it meant to them to work with/for me.

Now that I think about it, one of my employees had immigrated from another country, and one year she gave me a gift of a traditional kind of candle from her home country. It was not expensive at all, but it was really kind of sweet because she explained what it was used for and a little of the history behind it. I am always curious about other cultures and countries, so that was kinda cool.
