Our top 10 corporate Christmas gift ideas explained

Now that we’ve outlined the top 10 corporate gift ideas for employee gifts and client gifts, let’s take a look at some more specific suggestions for each category and what makes each of these business gift ideas a good one.

Customised tech gadgets

Technology always wins.

In today’s digital world, there’s no denying the allure of tech gadgets. Whether it’s the young intern or the seasoned CEO, everyone appreciates the sleek touch of modern technology.

Consider how inconvenient it is when your phone dies in the middle of an important call, or when you’re out and about. Or how often we use headphones to focus in the office.

Gifting gadgets like USBs, headphones, power banks and even normal phone chargers isn’t just practical; it demonstrates that you’re in tune with modern needs.

Now, imagine these gadgets branded with your company’s logo. Every time someone charges their phone or listens to a song, they’re reminded of your brand’s thoughtfulness. That moment of relief when you give your phone that much-needed boost or find a USB to copy documents across; that’s a feeling you want to be associated with.

Ideas for tech gadgets:

Think USBs, powerbanks, headphones, and charging cables – items that everyone uses and appreciates.

In today’s digital age, these make for perfect corporate gift ideas, combining utility with style.

The best tech gadget corporate gifting strategy is to add your branding or logo to these items; you can have your logo, your slogan, or a witty line added to the tech product so that your thoughtful gift doubles as a great promotional item.

Branded apparel

Clothing is more than just fabric; it’s an expression, a statement. When you gift branded apparel, you’re not just giving a wearable item; you’re sharing a part of your company’s identity.

Picture this: an employee wearing your branded cap during a weekend outing or a client sporting your logo on a t-shirt during a casual Friday at the office. The exposure is organic, genuine, and far-reaching.

Additionally, the variety of options available ensures that there’s something fitting for every occasion, and every brand personality, be it a formal shirt for that big presentation or a cosy jumper for the colder months. If your office has powerful air conditioning that some team members find quite cold, company logo printed hoodies are the perfect corporate gift that combines thoughtfulness with branding.

The best part? Every time they wear it, they’re indirectly endorsing your brand, acting as ambassadors in their own right.

How about a cosy, high-quality winter sweater or a stylish cap with your company’s logo? Apparel always makes a thoughtful and functional gift.

Ideas for branded clothing and apparel:

Hats and caps, shirts, jumpers and hoodies, beanies, and scarves are all great gift ideas for your employees and even your clients. Pair your branded apparel gift with a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates to make the gift feel extra special.

Shop our high quality products in the custom branded apparel category.

Drinkware (complete with your branding)

Here’s a universal truth: Everyone drinks something. It could be the morning coffee ritual, the hydrating water sip throughout the day, or the evening herbal tea.

Drinkware, therefore, finds its place in our daily routines, making it an ideal gift and one of the most popular corporate gifts in most industries. But there’s more to it than just utility.

Think of the conversations around the water cooler or the coffee machine chats. A branded mug or bottle can often be a conversation starter, subtly boosting brand visibility. Custom branded drinkware keeps your brand and business front-of-mind. The next time they need what you offer, they’ll be much more likely to call on you. If you’ve ever looked at a promotional fridge magnet from an electrician and thought; ‘I must get someone in to look at my light switches’, (or similar) you’ll know first-hand it works.

Ideas for drinkware gifts for your employee and client gifts:

The options are aplenty – elegant tumblers, quirky coffee mugs, custom branded water bottles, or even state-of-the-art insulated flasks, custom branded wine and spirit glasses. These are high quality gift options that can incorporate your brand logo or company name.

Your business clients will appreciate the practicality of the gift, and each sip becomes a gentle nod to the brand that provided the vessel.

We have many options, from custom coffee mug gifts to wine glasses, to high quality thermal insulated drink bottle products that keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for longer. Shop our custom drinkware gifts to find your perfect gift.

Custom branded stationery & books

Nothing screams professionalism more than a branded stationery set. It’s a classic among business gift ideas that resonates with everyone, from corporate customers and VIP clients to employees and management.

Stationery might seem mundane, but there’s a certain charm in a beautifully crafted pen or a well-designed diary. The trick to making custom branded stationery, diaries and calendars a great gift is picking a quality option.

These everyday items can garner a lot of appreciation because of their constant utility. Gifting customised stationery becomes a way of being a part of someone’s daily routine. The added advantage? When this stationery is branded, it’s not just a pen or a diary; it’s a daily advertisement for your brand.

Shop stationery gifts.

Ideas for stationery gifts with your company’s branding

Think business card holders, calendars to mark important dates, custom branded diaries and notebooks, branded high quality pens and other office accessories. These promotional products make great gifts, particularly when a few items are put together into a gift box. Pair these with a personalised mug or glass and you’ve got a complete branded gift set.

Unique branded products

Some of the best gift ideas are the most unique ideas. In a world full of standard corporate gifts, dare to stand out with unique branded products. The trick to nailing unique corporate gift ideas is in thinking outside the box. It can be something fun, quirky, or just based around fun.

At Promo Gear, we have a range of unique corporate gift ideas perfect for your corporate gifting for Christmas. When it comes to unique branded gifts, what makes them even more special is the surprise element. They aren’t the typical corporate gift, making them memorable and cherished.

If your unique branded products are gifts for clients, with your brand’s logo gracefully imprinted on them, they serve as constant reminders of a company that thinks outside the box.

If your unique corporate gift ideas are for employee appreciation, they’ll help promote team culture and show your employees that you care about them.

Functional items

Let’s face it; we all love gifts we can use. That’s the beauty of functional items.

Useful tools and branded workwear for the on-field professional, branded umbrellas to stay dry on rainy days or stationary for the office guru – these gifts seamlessly integrate into daily routines and add convenience.

While functional branded gifts serve their primary function, they also subtly endorse your brand, making it a part of everyday life. It’s this blend of practicality and brand promotion that makes functional items a winning choice for corporate gifting.

Some of the best corporate gift ideas for functional items, branded with company logo or name are things like umbrellas, tools like measuring tapes, multi-tools, rulers, torches and magnifiers, PPE, branded face masks and more.

Desk accessories

Elevate your employees’ or clients’ desk game with branded mouse pads, paperweights, or desktop organisers. It’s a subtle yet effective way of keeping your brand within their sight.

The workspace, whether at home or office, is a sanctuary for many. It’s where ideas are born, decisions are made, and goals are achieved. Gifting desk accessories is a gesture that says you value and respect their professional space.

Desk accessory corporate gifting ideas:

Stress balls for those intense moments, clocks to manage time, or even sports & fitness gear for those much-needed breaks – each item adds character to the desk. And with your brand’s logo on them, it’s a daily endorsement, always in sight and always reminding them of your presence.

Games, toys and novelty items

Some of the favourite corporate gift ideas among gift recipients are those that provide fun or novelty.

Work can be intense, and everyone needs a break. That’s where games, toys, and novelties come in. These aren’t just distractions; they’re tools for relaxation, creativity, and sometimes, team-building. A board game can become the highlight of a Friday evening, a puzzle can become a team project, and a novelty toy can become the mascot. Infusing fun into the corporate environment has always been a winner, and when these items carry your brand, it’s not just fun; it’s branded fun.

Ideas for fun corporate gifts:

Looking for the right corporate gifts that implement fun and novelty? Here are some fun corporate gift ideas for your business gifts this Christmas:

There are so many fun ideas, but you can choose from custom branded sports items like footballs, golf accessories, sports bags, sports and fitness equipment, games and puzzles, frisbees, and even gardening seed kits.

Bags, luggage & travel items

Travel items resonate with everyone, from the daily commuter to the frequent flyer. A tote bag for the quick grocery run, a travel wallet for the overseas conference, or even a backpack for the weekend getaway – these are items that find use in multiple scenarios. Gifting such items is a testament that you understand and cater to diverse needs. When branded, these items carry your logo far and wide, making your brand a part of many journeys.

Ideas for your corporate gifting:

Eco-friendly products and reusable items

The world is becoming increasingly conscious of sustainability, and eco-friendly products are more than just a trend; they’re a statement. They reflect responsibility, care, and a forward-looking mindset. Whether it’s reusable bags that reduce plastic waste, bamboo cutlery that replaces disposable ones, or recycled notebooks that save trees, each product carries a message. And when this message is coupled with your brand’s logo, it becomes a powerful testament to your company’s values.

Eco-friendly gift ideas for corporate gifting

Show you care for the planet by gifting branded reusable water bottles, coffee cups, or tote bags.
