2021 Business Holiday Gift Guide
The holidays are the perfect time to show your clients or employees that you’re thinking of them and that they are appreciated (although we also believe it’s important to do this year round – read more about that here). Not all holiday gifts are equal though, and some are much better received than others. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ideas to help you spread some holiday cheer and feel more connected (despite possibly still working from home) this holiday season.
The key to any gift is giving something that is actually usable or enjoyable. Food items can be great, but only if they’re high quality and delicious. Don’t gift something that you wouldn’t appreciate yourself simply for the sake of giving something. Try to make it meaningful and thoughtful, even if it’s something purchased in bulk to send out company or client-wide. Get creative with products and avoid hyper-branded items, electing to put some thought and some fun into designs and messages rather than a simple company logo.
Our Favorite Gifts:
A high quality, hardcover journal with your brand colors or your logo or a clever message is a simple but so useful gift.
High quality themed items such as this golf set are sure to be a hit. You can also customize the golf ball to include your branding or a special recognition for an employee or client.
Chargers and Cleaning Devices
With germs and cleanliness on everyone’s minds, how great are these Purity Wireless Chargers with UV-C Chambers? With a nontoxic chemical approach this cleaning case kills most germs found on daily use items while also providing a 5W wireless charging pad.
Other great options include portable power banks and wireless charging discs.
Quality Food Items
Edible gifts are always appreciated if they’re high quality. Skip the questionable ingredients and go for something like this Artisan Gold Medal Cheese Collection with a live-edge Acacia wood cutting and serving board.
Other greatly appreciated food and beverage items include wine, restaurant gift cards or tickets to tasting events.
A Thoughtful Note
Not every gift needs to be expensive. Even just a holiday card with a thoughtful, hand-written note is sure to leave someone with a smile. Add in a gift card to a local coffee shop to extend your message a bit further.
Depending on your company or clientele size, we understand costs and staying within budget are a big concern. The good news is, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to let people know they are appreciated. We’re also dedicated to finding you the best prices on items and making sure you get the most bang for your buck without sacrificing quality.
Some additional things to also consider when gifting are:
- Know your clients/employees likes/dislikes/values before giving a gift. Seek to find gifts that will be meaningful and appreciated.
- Don’t overdo it. Keep gifts in proportion to how much the client spends with you or what is appropriate for your working relationship with an employee. This will help prevent anyone from feeling uncomfortable with a gift.
- Think outside of the Holidays. Budget year-round for client/employee appreciation gifts. While gifts during the holidays are always appreciated and a nice gesture, sending a gift or note when people least expect it helps develop truly great relationships.
