Yes we get gift vouchers I am a nurse for a small company we a Christmas card handwritten thanking for the year with gift card inside. Also, have carols night, Christmas party and other events leading up to Christmas. I am very happy to receive anything last year I still received a card and gift voucher even though I was on mat leave. Reading other comments makes me appreciate my workplace a lot more! It's a pretty nice place to work!
Add it: my DH doesn't get anything in gifts but he does get 6 weeks paid leave during chrimatmas period so that's pretty good!

It varies year to year at my workplace.
The first two years I got a nice bonus, but that was when the company was making really good profit. The following year we got a nice wooden cheese platter & knife set. I don't recall receiving a gift the last two years. No sign of a gift (yet) this year, though maybe we'll get something as our work Xmas celebration was modest and informal.
My job before this one gifted employees a $300 Coles/Myer gift card - that was always the bomb
My current job keeps me very content, so I really don't mind if I don't get a gift.

The whole company (around 100 employees)hosts 2 xmas parties for all employees then each department do their own thing as well.
Our particular department got a $100 gift voucher each and got taken to lunch.
Cant complain here.

I've just been chatting about this subject on the "Why Are People So Ungrateful?" thread :-)
My DH owns his own company and has about 20 full-time employees and about 10 casuals.
He gave all full-time staff a bonus minimum $500 and a couple of key staff got $2000. He has only three female staff, so I also did up gift baskets for them with a huge pack of Lush products, a candle, book (personalised to taste), wine, chocolates and biscuits in a big hamper. He also took all his staff out for a night that was a dinner and drinks package, and he's taking a group of ten (those that wanted to) on a deep sea fishing trip on Sunday.
All in all I think he's been incredibly generous and is a great employer - he does have very high standards in his business, but he gives credit where it's due and in a tradie type industry he is known as the boss you can go to if you're having a hard time and he'll work things out with you.
For example one bloke split up with his wife and asked for an advance to pay his electricity bill, and DH not only gave him an advance, but organised for him to do some overtime, had an hour long chat with him and gave him some solid advice about divorce and kids (having been there himself) and then he was a bit worried about the guy so made sure a couple of workers checked up on him on the weekend and took him out for dinner. He feels that it goes both ways, if people work hard, his company succeeds so he looks after his team.
I think his staff are usually very happy with what they get, except for The Ungrateful One today!

The1st few years, we got a $100-$200 Christmas bonus added to our pay which was nice plus a few extra days paid at overtime. Now we get nothing and get standard public holidays. (I've been there 6 years)
Company is huge (not for profit, part government funded). I'm not sure if this is company wide or just limited to my sector (support worker).
Whilst we get paid quite well, we used to be the highest paid in our profession Australia wide and now are on par with government recommendations. So that kinda sucks. A bonus would be nice. Anything is appreciated. We work long hours in a pretty thankless job.
