1. The Crowd Pleaser

Who doesn’t love going to the movies? Especially when the tickets and popcorn are for free! 
Everyone appreciates a night out or lazy Sunday afternoon at the movies and that is why a pair of movie tickets (or step it up a notch and get Gold Class tickets) are an easy and affordable gift that is loved by everyone. Give a voucher for refreshments too and you will have your staff and clients feeling truly satisfied.
BUDGET: $25 - $100
WHERE TO GET IT: Event Cinemas have an awesome gift shop with a range of vouchers to choose from.

2. For The Hard Workers

If you are looking for a gift to reward staff or clients who you know are in need of some relaxation – perhaps after working tirelessly to pull off an amazing event - then a Day Spa voucher is most definitely one of THE best gifts you can give (our personal favourite!). Nothing says thank you for your hard work more than a heavenly massage... ahhhhh.
P.S. Pampering isn’t just a gift for the ladies. Why not give a voucher for a luxury wet shave to your hard-working males?

P.P.S Book your next event before 30 Sept and this reward could be yours for free! [Details here]
BUDGET:  $50 - $800
WHERE TO GET IT: spaQ has to be one THE BEST spa experiences available in Australia - spoil someone! spaQ & Barber Shops are available at select QT Hotels & Resorts.

3. For The Foodies

Giving restaurant vouchers is growing in popularity, simply because we all love eating out and when someone covers the bill, it tastes even better!
Receiving a restaurant voucher however is not just about the food – it’s also the promise of a night off, a night out, and a night to unwind and enjoy. It’s a great reward for everyone.
BUDGET: $100 - $500
WHERE TO GET IT: Loads of Australia’s top restaurants offer vouchers, the trouble is choosing which one to get... Here are a few Event Hotels & Resorts that offer top restaurant destinations.

4. The Versatile Voucher

Choosing a unique gift for your clients or best staff is so very hard – do you really know their style? Do you get something practical or something arty? There are simply too many options and too many ways to get it terribly wrong… Thank goodness for store vouchers!
But don’t get lazy and give a voucher from a large retailer – choose a gift card from a boutique gift store to show you really care and want your recipient to choose a gift, not some more groceries.
BUDGET:  $50 - $1,000
WHERE TO GET IT: Check out the gift shops at QT Hotels and Resorts for some unique gifts that are worth coverting.

5. A Night Away – Yes, Please!

Would a night at a hotel – even in your own city – be something you would enjoy? Some time out from cooking and cleaning, a chance to sleep in, take a long bath, explore a new neighbourhood, stay out late, go to bed early, switch off… rest. Oh, what a gift to give one of your top performing staff.
BUDGET: $250 - $1,000
WHERE TO GET IT: Event Hotels & Resorts have 50 properties across Australia & New Zealand… Here are our top picks for city escapes or something further afield.

P.S. Not sure about hitting the slopes? Thredbo is also a great place to spend some cosy time by the fire, bar and spa…
