4 Reasons Turkey Gift Certificates Are the Ultimate Employee Gift

Turkey Gift Certificates are one of the very best gifts for employees in your organization. 

Here’s why:

1.  Meaningful.  Turkey is the ultimate American food.  As part of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving, turkey became the centerpiece of American history and American gratitude.  Everyone knows that turkey is a symbol of thanks, abundance and overcoming adversity.

Turkey is a family meal.  Just think of how many wonderful images you’ve seen of a proud chef bringing a turkey to a grateful table.

As an emotional symbol, no food is more prominent in the United States.  As the giver of the turkey, your workplace will be front-and-center in the minds of every employee’s family.

2.  Practical.  Everyone loves turkey; the turkey your company gives will be enjoyed by employees’ entire family.  Turkey is affordable; a $15 – $20 turkey feeds a whole party, and there are loads of leftovers for sandwiches, soups and casseroles.

Incentive Magazine recently shared new research showing that in today’s economy, employees especially appreciate practical gifts and prefer a gift certificate or gift card to cash.   What’s better than the gift of a Turkey?  It’s a gift that’s meaningful, affordable and appreciated by everyone.

3.  Super Convenient for the Giver.  At gThankYou! ordering turkey gift certificates is simple; just place your order online or by telephone at 888-484-1658; certificates can arrive as early as the next day, if you want.  (Not only that, we customize your certificates with both giver and recipient names if you wish, and provide FREE customizable enclosure cards too!)

Distributing turkey gift certificates is as easy as distributing any piece of paper.  Tuck them in payroll envelopes (or have your payroll service do it); hand them directly to recipients (or have the senior leadership team do it); or mail them to employees’ homes.

The convenience of turkey gift certificates makes them ideal for employees in more than one location.  If you have a distributed work force, gThankYou! can help make it easy for you to deliver your certificates to every location.

The simplicity of turkey gift certificates means nobody has to order truck-loads of frozen turkeys and hand them to employees in the parking lot on a bone-chilling November day. You may have Management that likes the tradition of handing out frozen turkeys; they can still hand out the turkey gift certificates and have a meaningful conversation with recipients at the same time.  When you choose to distribute gift certificates,  employees can choose the size and type of bird that works for their family and freezer space, and Management can decide when and how they would like to distribute their thoughtful gift.

4.  Flexible and Convenient for Recipients.  Selecting a turkey is easy for someone with a gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificate.  They go to their grocery store, select the turkey they want and redeem their certificate at the check-out lane.

This means gift certificate recipients choose what they want –  the right size turkey, the right kind (organic or conventional, smoked, fresh or frozen), any brand they want – at the time they want (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, anytime).

A gift of a Turkey Gift Certificate to employees is a thoughtful, meaningful gift of your gratitude for their contributions to your business.  Holiday time or any time.

What to Serve at Your Holiday Party: Turkey or Ham?

A perfectly browned turkey or a glazed holiday ham, sliced into layers like the petals of a flower. Either makes for a crowd-pleasing main course, ample enough to feed a crowd, with leftovers to spare.

But when you’re hosting a holiday gathering (that isn’t Thanksgiving — turkey has the clear edge there), which do you choose for your centerpiece? What makes better appetizers for a cocktail party?

If your gathering is less than two weeks after Thanksgiving, everyone might be happier with ham. A spiral-sliced, smoked bone-in or boneless ham comes already cooked, so all you have to do is warm it up, glaze it and serve.

Hosting a cocktail party? For appetizers, ham is a little more decadent than turkey.

For example, I served ham and cheese puff pastry squares (recipe by Ina Garten on the Food Network) for my New Year’s Eve party in 2010. They were finger food, easy to make and fantastic with sparkling wine.

Ham and rice croquettes are a tiny bit more fussy because they require frying, but reviewers of this Gourmet recipe raved about them. “Superb! One of the easiest apps to please a wine-swilling crowd,” wrote one; another said, “My guests really loved them.”

For a Spanish flare, try Spanish-style garlic shrimp with ham and bell peppers, which is a “great tapas or appetizer with crusty bread.”

If you have picky eaters or anyone who keeps kosher on the guest list, go with turkey. Turkey offers white meat for the dieters and dark for everyone else, and most flexitarians make an exception for fowl.

If you choose, you can even roast a smaller bird (though the leftovers are so good, that’s a hard argument to make).

For appetizer portions, Jennie-O is a font of great entertaining ideas based around turkey, like pesto turkey pinwheels and smoked Gouda and turkey dip.

These turkey pockets are made super easy by the addition of premade dough.

For something different in the weeks following Thanksgiving, try something more exotic on your turkey. Asian flavors are awesome with the neutral flavors of turkey breast meat — check out the cinnamon-orange scented turkey from Rick Rodgers at Bon Appétit (the “dry brine” salt includes star anise, Szechuan peppercorns, clove, coriander and fennel).

Joanne Chang’s recipe for a turkey glazed with soy, sesame, honey and ginger, found in Food & Wine, will banish memories of Thanksgiving from your holiday gathering. Also intriguing is a recipe for a teriyaki glaze on the turkey and shallot gravy to finish.

Whatever you do, be sure to save some leftovers for yourself! Enjoy.

The Joy of Thanksgiving Turkey: A History

At the first Thanksgiving, they probably didn’t have a turkey.

According to a story by NPR’s Robert Krulwich, the main course was probably deer (brought by the Wampanoags), goose and duck (brought by the English).

But in these United States, in 2012, Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without a fat, browned bird popping and sizzling in the oven, rendering fat for a rich gravy, leaving behind a wishbone for kids to fight over.

“I believe from a good turkey all Thanksgiving flows,” wrote Kim Severson in The New York Times, in a story headlined “After the Turkey, Everything Else is Secondary.”

“Norman Rockwell didn’t spend all that time painting pans of sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce, did he? No. He painted turkeys.”

For Americans, the bird is central to (arguably) the biggest feast of the year. Expatriates, like David Leite in France, students abroad in Spain and Peace Corps workers in Morocco go to great lengths to procure, prepare and serve a bird, which, thousands of miles away, tastes a little bit like home.

One small food pantry gives out 2,000 Thanksgiving meals on the weekend before the holiday, anchoring each one with a Jenny-O or a Butterball between 13 and 20 lbs.

Even Sam Sifton, the former New York Times restaurant critic and author of “Thanksgiving: How To Cook It Well” (Random House, October 2012), will never forget the memory of the first turkey he cooked as a college kid.

“The aroma that wafted through the house for the duration of that first college Thanksgiving was and remains incredible to me,” Sifton writes. “I have forgotten the conversations. But never the meal. I have been cooking that Thanksgiving turkey ever since.”

Charles Masters for CookingLight.com

Your family Thanksgiving table might include sweet potatoes with Gorgonzola, creamy corn casserole, roasted cauliflower or stuffing with spicy peppers. It might include Jell-O salad, cranberry sauce from a can and Stove Top stuffing.

But your Thanksgiving table, like mine — like 88 percent of Americans’ — needs a beautiful, browned turkey to make it complete. And that is a very delicious tradition.

Here at gThankYou!, we wish you and your family a joyous Thanksgiving.  We are grateful for all of your support, inspiration and business.

Gratefully yours,
The gThankYou! Team

Five Ways to Add Flavor to Your Thankgiving Turkey

Turkey by itself — especially the breast meat — doesn’t have a ton of flavor and can run a little dry. For the best-tasting, juiciest turkey, most birds need a little help.

Here are five ways to add richness, spice and excitement to your Thanksgiving turkey.

Photo via Indulgy.com

1. Brine it. The white meat of turkey is not naturally  juicy. To add both moisture and flavor, soak the bird in brine the night before you plan to cook it. It works wonders.

There is a fair amount of internet buzz for Alton Brown’s five-star-rated Good Eats Roast Turkey, which as of this posting has 4,007 reviews on Food Network. To make his brine, you basically make a tea using kosher salt, brown sugar, vegetable stock, peppercorns, allspice and candied ginger. Cool it down and then soak the bird in the mixture for 8 to 16 hours.

The results? See the reviews: “A HUGE hit,” “soooooo easy,” “awesome turkey flavor, mild, subtle, and what Thanksgiving is all about!”

2. Inject it. You can buy pre-injected turkey, though some are wary of these — a whole frozen turkey from Butterball, for example, includes “modified food starch, sodium phosphates (and) natural flavorings.”

Williams-Sonoma Flavor Injector

You’ll know exactly what’s in the injection if you do it yourself. Granted, this requires some tools, but those who tried Brian Page‘s butter-injected turkey with thyme gave it “four forks” out of four on Epicurious.com.

“By putting the butter inside of the turkey it makes the turkey moist inside,” wrote one reviewer. “When the butter comes out into your water it makes it good for basting, because it helps brown the skin on the outside. I also use poultry seasoning, putting some on the inside and out.

3. Rub spices on the skin. Add flavor fast with a simple spice rub, which can range from basic to bold. One Cooking Light recipe packs tons of flavor, with cumin, coriander, oregano, sage, thyme, dry mustard and a little brown sugar.

Saveur has a recipe for a beautiful chile-rubbed Mexican turkey, involving toasted pasilla chiles, 30 cloves of garlic, orange juice, olive oil and honey.

4. Spread herb butter under the skin. No time to brine? This is a great last-minute technique that you can easily adapt for roast chicken, too.

Both Ina Garten and Martha Stewart offer step-by-step instructions for making a compound butter (with chopped herbs and lemon zest), then (in Martha’s case) loosening the skin of the bird and slathering the slightly softened butter underneath. Ina gets brown skin by brushing the melted butter mixture on top.

5. Stuff it. Take a lemon or an orange, a quartered Spanish onion or a full head of garlic, a bunch of rosemary or a few sprigs of thyme, and shove them into the cavity of the bird. (Apples are delicious, too.) This perfumes the meat lightly. Garlic left in its papery skin emerges melting and sweet, amazing spread on crusty bread.

Happy Cooking! Let us know what you do to make your Thanksgiving Turkey it’s flavorful best.

The Secret to a Perfect Holiday Turkey: Dry Brining

Every November, people wrestle bulky birds into bags of brine, slopping all over the kitchen and making a mess in the name of a more tender turkey.

No more.

Wet brining — making a solution of water, salt, herbs and spices in which the turkey would sit for 12 to 24 hours — is undoubtedly a fine way to infuse flavor into a conventional store-bought turkey (most of which have been bred for size, not taste). But dry brining is so much simpler, and the results are so consistently good, that there’s no shame in taking the easy way out.

A dry-brined turkey, called “The Judy Bird” after Zuni Café owner Judy Rodgers, who pioneered the technique. Photo credit Food52.

One of the first chefs to introduce the idea of a poultry dry brine into home cooks’ regular rotation was Judy Rodgers, owner of Zuni Cafe in San Francisco. In “The Zuni Café Cookbook” (W.W. Norton & Co., 2002), Rodgers wrote that the brine on a small roasting chicken “improves flavor, keeps it moist, and makes it tender.”

Applying salt in advance at first draws moisture out of the bird, but over time it draws it back in again, resulting in much juicier meat. When talking to home cooks who attempted her method, Rodgers reported that “the results are startling and delicious when they prepare a chicken this way in their gas or electric ovens.”

To dry brine your turkey, begin the Sunday night before Thanksgiving. Just before roasting, give it a few hours uncovered in the fridge so it dries out (that will help the skin get golden brown).

Credit: Washington City Paper

Measure one tablespoon of kosher salt for every five pounds of turkey (for a 15-pound turkey, that means 3 tablespoons). Sprinkle the salt all over the outside of the turkey and lightly on the inner cavity. It should look well-seasoned but not over-salted. (With chicken, I sometimes add pepper or other seasonings here — thyme and rosemary are lovely, as are blends like za’atar and an ancho chile combination.)

To store the turkey, you can put it in a sealable plastic bag, or simply cover it with a towel. It should be breast-side up; turn it occasionally.

When you’re ready to cook, give the turkey about an hour to come to room temperature. Then roast as usual — Rodgers recommends a higher heat, about 425°F, rotating midway through to make sure the skin gets evenly browned.

Find other converts to the dry-brine method at the LA Times, Food52 and Martha Stewart Living.

Why Give Employees a Thanksgiving Turkey?

gThankYou! Turkey Gift CertificatesThanksgiving Turkey is the centerpiece of the holiday meal – it represents family, thankfulness and American tradition.

The Gift of a Thanksgiving Turkey is a truly Meaningful Gift.

Holiday Turkey packs emotional impact –
it’s the symbol of Thanksgiving

It’s About Family
Thanksgiving holds a special place in people’s hearts and lives.  It’s the time  we stop our everyday lives and surround ourselves with family and friends to give thanks.  Everyone has fond memories of this family centered holiday – the smells of  turkey cooking and a wonderful array of favorite family dishes, the joy of family and friends, the sense of belonging, the giving of thanks for those who came before us and the sharing of blessings.

It Embodies the American Thanksgiving Tradition of Giving Thanks
Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday dating to the origins of our nation and the celebration of shared community and bounty.   Our modern-day Thanksgiving dinner celebrates that original Thanksgiving — and the centerpiece is the turkey.

Why Companies Give Turkeys at Thanksgiving

It Shows You Care.
If you give employees holiday turkey, your business is an important part of their holidays. Thoughts of you are front-and-center as employees and their loved ones enjoy Thanksgiving. That’s priceless.

It has Universal Appeal.
Everyone appreciates the gift of a holiday turkey.  It’s a valuable contribution to a family’s Thanksgiving dinner.  These days, that’s an especially appreciated gift.

It’s Affordable.
A Thanksgiving Turkey has more emotional impact for the price than anything else. A Thanksgiving turkey costs just a few dollars, but its meaningfulness makes the return on investment incalculably high.

Why gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates are a Better Choice

As an employer, is it really practical for you to buy and distribute fresh or frozen turkeys to employees?  And how do you know what size turkey fits each family? How would you know what will fit each family’s holiday plans and available refrigerator space?

Consider this cautionary tale—a true story about Hughes Aircraft—related by author Brooks Mitchell, Phd., professor emeritus of management at the University of Wyoming and the founder of Snowfly Incentives. Writing at Human Resources IQ, he relates how Howard Hughes and his right-hand man had delighted employees with holiday turkeys in the company’s first two years.

By year three, the process was getting unwieldy and expensive.

By the fourth year, Mitchell writes:
“[World War II] was on and Hughes Aircraft had grown to several thousand people. Getting turkeys to everyone was a logistical nightmare. Things got even worse when the union got involved and accused management of giving bigger turkeys to some favored people and arrogantly ignoring the fact that some employees would rather have a ham. Howard and Scott were dumbfounded! How could such a well-intended holiday gesture become so twisted and acrimonious?”

Do you want to share the gift of a Holiday Turkey, but don’t want the logistical hassles of distributing turkeys to your workforce?

 gThankYou! Certificates of Gratitude can help!

At gThankYou! we are committed to meaningful, affordable and convenient ways for Companies to celebrate employee holidays.  A gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificate allows recipients to choose Any Brand and size Turkey, at virtually Any Grocery Store in the U.S., when they want.

Our Gift Certificates are easy to insert with payroll or hand-delivered with a smile and a big “thank you”.  A better choice for you and your recipients!

If Choice is Important: Choose gThankYou! Turkey Or Ham Gift Certificates

Many companies want to provide recipients the choice of a holiday turkey or ham.  It’s a thoughtful choice if you want your gift to be for the holiday season – that way recipients can choose to buy what they want, for the occasion they wish to celebrate.

We Make it Easy For You!
