Christmas is not only the time for giving to our friends and families, it’s also a time to show our appreciation for clients, customers and contractors who we have worked with throughout the year. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect corporate Christmas gifts to give your business contacts, we know it can be tricky to find something that is thoughtful, unique and affordable. Don’t get stuck sending the same old boring branded mugs or USB sticks – here are some unique ideas for corporate gifts that your customers will actually like.
Six Great Corporate Christmas Gifts for your clients
Host a lunch or throw a party
Rather than sending an impersonal gift, host a lunch at their office or throw a party for them to come to instead. Taking the time to build personal relationships with your clients and customers is very valuable to an ongoing work relationship, and there’s no better time to do this than at Christmas. You could host an afternoon picnic or barbeque for your clients to bring their families to, or a take your clients on a wine tasting. Choose activities that encourage interaction and most importantly, will give your clients an opportunity to have a little fun! Ensure you get in early as this time of year is tricky for most people.
Let’s be honest: when is chocolate NOT a good idea? Our chocolate hampers are a great option if you’re looking for a corporate Christmas gift to give a small team or individual. To make it a little more extravagant, include a bottle or two of sparkling wine to really bring on that Christmas cheer.
Extend the giving spirit
Christmas is the time for giving, but it can also be a time of excessive waste. Rather than sending corporate gift to your clients which might just end up in the bin, why not extend the giving spirit and make a charitable donation in their name? Global charity organisations like Oxfam and World Vision make it super easy with their gift cards, or if you’d rather let your clients choose their own cause to give to, take a look at Karma Currency. This site lets you pre-pay a donation amount that your client can then choose to give to a charity or cause that is important to them.
A thoughtful book
Giving a well considered book is a particularly great idea for business-to-business gifts. Choose a book that has either been influential to your business, or one that you think will be of special interest to them. This corporate gift allows your to give some personal insight into your company culture and provides a great talking point for the future. Make sure to write a handwritten note to accompany the book to make it even more personal.
Exotic fruit hamper
At a time of year when we tend to be overindulging in treats left, right and centre, having a hamper of beautiful fruit in the office can be a godsend! Our large selection of delicious, exotic fruits comes in a wicker basket and is a great option for a small team to enjoy in the lead up to the holiday break.
Over Christmas your clients might be receiving gifts from any number of businesses. Giving a subscription is a great way to make sure they continue to feel appreciated (and you stay top of their minds) for months to come! You could choose either a subscription to a magazine, a wine sampler, or a gift box subscription. Bellabox offer a great subscription service with both men and women’s beauty and grooming products – for less than $55, your client will receive a monthly sampler box delivered to their home or office for three months.
