Gift giving is a great way to deepen relationships with clients and show how much you appreciate their business. In our last blog post, we outlined the benefits of investing in promotional products and how to get started. With the holiday season right around the corner, there is truly no better time to start incorporating gift giving into your business strategy. But let’s be honest, it can be hard to find the right corporate holiday gifts – especially when it comes to those extra special clients.

At Cork Tree Creative, we have experience working with a wide variety of clients with a wide variety of interests and needs. Regardless of your industry or budget, we’ve put together a list full of corporate holiday gift options we know everyone will love this holiday season:

Phone Accessories

Products like the WeatherTech CupFone or WeatherTech DeskFone make great and unique gifts. Whether it’s navigating Google Maps in the car or reading an article at the office – these products can help to provide ease and convenience wherever users go!

COFFEE OR TEA BLENDS 

Keeping productivity levels high and employees energized can be achieved through one solution: caffeine. This might be a slight exaggeration, but who doesn’t love a hot beverage to sip on at the office? Consider partnering with a local coffee or tea distributor. Not only will this boost community engagement, but your clients will appreciate that you chose to support another local business. It’s a win, win!

Essential Oil Diffuser

Perfect for a desk or office space, an essential oil diffuser is an excellent holiday gift for any occasion. Essential oils can provide a calming and relaxing effect and release a great scent too. You can even add specific oils to make holiday blends!

Metal Straws & Cleaner Set

These eco and ocean-friendly straws have been a huge hit for us here at Cork Tree Creative. Many businesses are going green and appreciate receiving a sustainable gift. In fact, this study shows that the energy used to produce one reusable straw is equivalent to the energy used to produce 90 plastic straws. Not only are they customizable, but they are also easy to transport, clean and store. Don’t forget to add in a cleaner set too!

Terrarium for Office Plants

Plants are the perfect way to bring some life to the office! Plants do make great gifts; however, they don’t always  last long. On the other hand, terrariums do! In fact, the longest known terrarium lasted on it’s own for 53 years! They can be home to succulents, small flowers, and ferns, and be a nice decorative touch to any office space.  

A Subscription Box

Be creative and choose the gift that keeps on giving! With so many subscription box services available, you are sure to find one that best fits your client. You can even choose how long the subscription will last and cancel at any time. Some of our favorites are the Snacknation, Paper Source, and Winc!

Donation

If none of these gift ideas seem to spark your interest, consider making a monetary donation. This way, each business can decide how to best utilize and distribute the funds internally based on the needs of their employees as well as their overall business goals.

In conclusion, corporate holiday gifts should be exciting or unique and keep the recipients’ interests in mind. If you really want to take advantage of relationship-building opportunities through gift giving this holiday season, we can help!
