The Gift Guide to Goofy Faces!

It’s officially that time of year again to begin preparing your holiday shopping lists. But where do you even begin when there are so many options to choose from?

Goofy Faces is the answer. We offer many different caricature packages that you can custom order right here.

But before you do it’s time to determine who exactly you’re buying for this year to make this holiday season truly one to remember.

  • GiftRecently Engaged + Newlyweds – 2022 was considered the boom of weddings! Over 2.5 million couples got married this year. And over 1.8 million couples got engaged this year. Can you even imagine the number of gifts they’ve already gotten this year? It’s time to get creative!
  • Extended Families Members + Grandparents – There is nothing aunts, uncles, and grandparents love more than their nieces, nephews, and grandchildren! Whether your family is near or far, our artists can create customized pieces of artwork that celebrate these special bonds.

Throwing a Holiday Party to Remember!

Corporate holiday parties are a great way to boost morale, celebrate accomplishments, and prepare for a new year. In fact, 64% of businesses are predicted to host a holiday party this year. As you begin planning your event, make sure it’s one to remember!

Find a Great Venue

Get your colleagues out of the office to celebrate. Make sure to give them the opportunity to bring a plus one to enjoy the event. This is a great way for colleagues to network and get to know one another outside the office. We recommend finding a venue with an activity like bowling, an escape room, wine tasting, etc. It’s important to talk about other things besides work.

Pick a Theme

Who doesn’t love a good theme? It can be simple or elaborate! It will showcase your colleague’s creativity and personality. Check out these sample ideas:

  • Ugly sweaters
  • Groovy holiday
  • Holiday luau
  • Lights show
  • Winter Wonderland
  • Hollywood holiday

 

Handout Door Prizes

EVERYONE LOVES FREE STUFF! Depending on your corporate holiday party budget, you can make this as straightforward or as elaborate as you’d like. It will add excitement from the moment your coworkers walk into the party. Consider these ideas:

  • An additional day of PTO
  • Company apparel
  • Gift certificates
  • Monthly subscription packages
  • Seasonal gift ideas

 

Good Food & Good Drinks

Find food and drinks your colleagues will devour. Consider coming up with a signature cocktail or appetizer. Don’t forget to ask your guests if they have any dietary restrictions. They will appreciate you going the extra mile in planning. Thinking of catering the vent yourself? Here’s a great article with tips on the best and most cost-efficient ways to do it!

 

Entertainment party

Every good corporate holiday party has stellar entertainment that keeps the party going… And in our personal opinion, there is no one better than Goofy Faces! Our artists are ready to bring fun to your upcoming holiday party. We have artists located nationwide and can be booked easily on our website.

By Bryon Scott | September 28, 2022 | Comments Off on Employee Appreciation in 2022 ~ Goofy Faces Style

Employee Appreciation in 2022 Goofy Faces Style

The past several years have been filled with many challenges in the workplace. One of the most newsworthy topics and frequently used buzzwords has been the Great Resignation. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2021 over 47 million Americans voluntarily quit their jobs. In 2022 the Great Resignation shows no signs of slowing down either…In January alone, 4.3 million Americans voluntarily quit their jobs. So, how do employers slow or even stop this trend? Here are a few ways to show your employees they are important to you and your company!

Employee appreciationEmployee Appreciation

It might sound silly, or maybe you don’t feel like there are enough hours in the day, to put thought into how you’ll thank your team for their hard work and dedication. But showing your team you appreciate them matters. According to Forbes, there are three important reasons:

  1. Recognized employees are happy employees
  2. Appreciated leaders show appreciation to their employees
  3. When employees feel recognized, they stick around

Showing your team that you appreciate them can be done simply or elaborately. A simple thank you card, email, or phone call can go a long way. Going the extra mile can be celebrating a birthday, career milestone, or anniversary. Or you can work with your Human Resources Department to create a rewards system.

Goofy Faces Employee Appreciation Tip: Goofy Faces offers many different caricature packages that you can custom order right here. Whether you want a gift caricature for a colleague, your entire team, or to celebrate retirement, Goofy Faces has the perfect caricature for you.

As a team leader or Human Resources Department member, you should consider hosting at least one team-building opportunity per year. This is a great opportunity to give your colleagues something to look forward to other than regular deadlines.

According to Indeed, there are 17 major benefits to your team when you have team-building opportunities. One thing they all have in common is how hosting these types of activities positively impacts your company. There are also many different ideas on types of team-building activities when researching online, depending on the size of your team and budget.

Showing Appreciation for Employees in 2022

Showing Appreciation for Employees in 2022

Uncertainty, stress, anxiety, pressure. Unprecedented demands and challenges. Your employees have been through that and so much more in recent times, both in the workplace and at home. Right on cue, Employee Appreciation Day is just around the corner on March 4, 2022. What better excuse to say thanks to those on whom you rely on each and every day?

When the going gets tough, a little bit of gratitude can go a long way. Whether it is a simple “thank you” or something more tangible, the important thing is that your employees know that you acknowledge and appreciate the effort they put in.

In terms of tangible ways to show your thanks, there are many options available. Team lunches, gift cards, or a spontaneous coffee break are always reliable. But what if you were to give your employees a gift that they would truly never forget? Employee recognition is important because it boosts morale, increases productivity, and builds positive relationships. Praising employees for their achievements reinforces quality performance—benefitting both the staff and the organization.

Goofy Faces can come to your workplace and deliver a fun experience that will cut through any stress and tension. Custom caricatures of your staff, whether individually or as a group, can be displayed proudly as a source of joy to help weather the storm both now and in the future.

Has your workplace gone virtual? No problem! Book a Goofy Faces artist to draw your staff over Zoom!  That’s right. Our artists can draw you live, in a digital format in color, over any popular conferencing software. Everyone can watch as the art takes shape virtually. Your crew can watch, laugh, and download their digital caricature instantly too!

Plus, in these uncertain times, budgets can be tight. Goofy Faces offers an affordable way to give your employees a gift that they will never forget. To learn more visit goofyfaces.com. For other budget employee appreciation ideas check out this link! Click Here

If you have any questions, contact us at info@goofyfaces.com or call (248) 652-8910.

Don’t just take it from us, here’s what some of our amazing Goofy Faces clients have said about our artists!

Angela from Southgate, Michigan said, “Both artists were amazingly talented and genuinely nice people. We enjoyed having them at our event and would hire them again in a second.

Elisha R. said, “Our artists arrived early, began early, and even stayed late to make sure everyone who wanted a picture was able to get one. Thanks!”

Lastly, J.D. from Lawrence, Kansas said, “We were absolutely in love with our artist. She was fast, friendly, and efficient. We received many requests to bring her to our future events and the fee was extremely reasonable. I would book from Goofy Faces again in a heartbeat!”

We look forward to helping you celebrate your coworkers and employees!

Time to Celebrate the Class of 2022!Celebrate the Class of 2022

Who can forget that feeling of “senioritis”? The home stretch, the final semester before graduation. The feeling that a chapter of life is coming to an end, but a new, exciting adventure is just around the corner. The itch to be done with the planned part of life and to be free to pave your own destiny.

For the class of 2022, senior year has proven to be anything but that carefree time of hanging out with friends and counting the hours until graduation. This is a class that has endured previously unseen challenges and stress while sacrificing time-honored rites of passage. That is why the need to celebrate life’s milestones is greater than ever. Graduating under the circumstances faced by the class of 2022 is a remarkable accomplishment worthy of the highest levels of excitement.

Believe it or not, the time for graduation parties and Senior All Night Parties are just around the corner! To make sure these events are memorable and fun, add Goofy Faces to your guest list! Goofy Faces artists are skilled at drawing caricatures that capture the fun spirit of the party and give lasting souvenirs. When you look back on the 2022 graduation, don’t you want to see the fun side of what was an otherwise challenging time? We’ve found that traditional activities such as caricatures, organized dances, and photo booths have had a resurgence in popularity due to the unusual last couple of years! Let’s help them celebrate!

Whether your party is in-person, virtual, or both, Goofy Faces is excited to help the class of 2022 celebrate this very exciting time! Our artists will add laughter, create memories, and give the senior class a keepsake they can cherish for a lifetime.

‘Tis The Season To Be Goofy!

‘Tis The Season To Be Goofy!

We’re Expert Gift Givers!

The warm glow of Holiday lights fills the air and even though you can’t imagine eating another bite, the smell of cookies might be too tempting to ignore. A perfectly wrapped box catches your eye. It’s got your name on the tag. Excitedly you slide your fingers through the wrapping paper. The anticipation builds, and when the paper finally yields to what is inside, you see that it is….socks?! Another sweater?! A kitchen gadget that will never see the outside of your cabinets?! More lotion and candles?!

Imagine if, instead, you pulled back the wrapping to find an amazing, one-of-a-kind drawing staring back at you! Picture a custom, hand-drawn caricature of you, your friends, or your loved ones. How much more memorable would that be instead of your average Holiday gift? Or, even better, imagine the look on the faces of your family and friends as they unwrap a caricature drawing that is sure to bring smiles to their faces and that cherished Holiday laughter into the air. It will be anything but a silent night. You can be everyone’s favorite Santa by giving the gift of a Goofy Faces drawing.

This year has brought unprecedented challenges in many areas of life. Global supply chain disruptions threaten the availability of electronics, toys, and other typical Holiday gifts. It is as though the Grinch himself has grabbed ahold of the world’s economy. Not so fast, though, Mr. Grinch. Goofy Faces can be counted on to deliver unique and memorable drawings that don’t rely on microchips or container ships. The only raw material is the imagination of the nationwide network of artists, and their imagination is never in short supply!

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Some Holiday guests bring cheer by entering through the chimney, but Goofy Faces artists are ready to bring tidings of comfort and joy by entering through your front door (though arriving via sleigh isn’t out of the question)!

How about a drawing of your dog with reindeer antlers? You got it! Any way in which you want to capture the fun and memories of the evening, Goofy Faces can make it happen.

Hiring Goofy Faces to attend your upcoming party is simple to do! Whether your party is in person or virtual, you can book your artist in advance or last minute.
