With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get into the festive spirit and start planning your company Christmas gifts. There’s no time like the present to start planning, with many things to consider including the product products themselves, how many you need, the type of personalisation desired, budget per person and product credentials with the likes of eco-friendly and recyclable.
Christmas is a very busy month for businesses. Get ahead of the Christmas rush with early planning and supplier communication to make sure every festive gift is delivered on time and also ensures your supplier does not get any extra grey hairs this festive season! Generous lead times are always appreciated ahead of the typical last-minute Christmas panic buyers.
So, you're looking for corporate Christmas gift ideas? Our Involution elves have worked their magic and put together a list of their favourite items and created the ultimate Christmas business gift guide to help you on your way.
Festive Business Gift Ideas
1. Sweet Treat Christmas Hamper
Go all out with a fun and festive sweet hamper complete with Christmas themed treats and accessories. From candy canes to chocolate Santa’s, truffles and cookies, 'tis the season to indulge after all. And surely a definite must for any Christmas hamper is a fluffy red Santa hat and a festive mug for cosy hot chocolates on a cold Winters day. Go the extra mile with bespoke Christmas crackers with the all-important joke and novelty gift inside, neatly presented in a company-branded box ready to hand out to staff and customers.
2. Office Snack Pack
If you’re looking for a practical gift for employees then a snack pack might be your answer. An all-in-one kit for a quick and easy lunch for someone that’s always on the go or just a tad too busy for a festive three-course meal. Treat staff to a tasty and efficient meal, with a personalised mug and spork set to complete the gift. You can’t go wrong with a fast microwave meal to satisfy the midday hunger, and an optional cheeky chocolate bar makes for great Elevenses.
3. Winter Warmer
As the days get cooler and darker, for staff working outdoors, our winter warmer bundle is the perfect gift to keep employees safe and warm from the cold, wet and windy. Although products can be interchangeable completely customisable, popular winter warmer gifts include embroidered beanie hats and gloves, engraved multi-tool keyrings and LED torches, reflective wristbands and printed thermal mugs to keep drinks warmer for longer and keep the cold at bay.
4. Essential Stationery Set
December is the perfect time to rehaul office stationery and look forward to starting the year fresh with a brand new notebook and pen set. Set the tone for the rest of the year with efficient and organised note-taking or maybe even doodling. Not only are notebooks useful everyday items, but also subtle marketing tools that through bespoke company branding and employee personalisation promote your brand. For those desiring stationery sets with green credentials, eco-friendly writing pads and pens are widely available, produced environmentally friendly, from recycled products, sourced responsibly and ethically.
5. Trendy Tech
Technology is always a welcomed gift at Christmas, and often a useful item for work too, whether staff are home or based in the office. Technology gifts such as headphones, power banks and speakers are great products to personalise, often regularly used both inside and out of work. Practical tech products are common business gifts, but if you’re looking to really impress someone, more premium technology corporate gifts may be needed. In this instance, unique gifts for special occasions could include engraved watches or even a bespoke laptop or phone with a luxury case which will truly create impact and provide the wow factor. For more entertaining tech items, VR headsets and game consoles are perfect options as gifts and allow the user to be immersed in the virtual world.
6. Luxury Remote-Controlled Car
Know a car fanatic that would love to get their hands on a Ferrari FXX-K or Lamborghini Reventon? This Christmas, if you’re looking to impress a colleague or customer, you can make their wish come true (at least somewhat!), with these fun remote-controlled cars. Styled out to immaculate specs, these user-controlled toy cars are the perfect replica of the real thing, and at a fraction of the cost. If Christmas isn’t the best time to live out any dreams and car fantasies when is?
7. Christmas Letterbox Gifts
With the popularity of hybrid and remote working, handing out Christmas gifts in person may not be possible for some companies. Letterbox gifts are the perfect festive solution to make sure every single staff member receives a little something this Christmas. What’s included inside a postbox gift can be completely flexible with plenty of products to choose from. Popular options often include cake, biscuits, tea and coffee to socks and t-shirts, notebooks, metal pen sets, desk calendars and small everyday items like keyrings, coasters and trolley coins.
Picking Christmas gifts for employees and stakeholders does not need to be tricky. Work with a trusted supplier like Involution to help you perfect the festive feel-good with personalised presents that everyone will love.
