The holidays are on the horizon, which means now is the time to start thinking about your corporate holiday gift list! After all, the last thing you want is for your clients to think you forgot about them, due to last-minute deliveries.

Your brand is more than just a logo. It’s essential to integrate your brand’s story, values, and company culture into all your marketing efforts. More than ever, brand authenticity matters, and your audience wants to do business with brands they share values with.
There is no better time to connect with your clients and employees than through end-of-year gifts. After all, this is a time each of us reflects back on our relationships throughout the year.

Below, you’ll find our top 10 favorite client appreciation gifts that you can order now to ensure they arrive in time for your company’s holiday and year-end celebrations.
Sending your clients the experience of premium scented candles will instantly fill their homes and/or offices with good vibes and calming aromas. With winter just around the corner—a time when most people feel a little coped up and closed off from the rest of the world—scented candles help invoke mini escapes from reality by triggering happy memories or experiences through a combination of luxury scents and fresh herbs.
Scents from candles can help reduce stress, boost mental focus, or just create a calm, relaxing environment. And when your clients are enjoying the good vibes and fresh scents, they’ll associate those feelings with your brand.
Speaking of winter, when the temperature drops, there’s nothing more alluring than a cozy blanket to cuddle up in with a glass of wine or hot cocoa in hand. Sending clients a super-soft, blanket is sure to provide them with some extra comfort for the cold nights ahead—not to mention an excuse for a family movie night to gather together under the warmth of a blanket to create new memories.
It’s hard to find anyone who isn’t tuned into a popular podcast or music playlist these days. But more often than not, we could all use a better pair of speakers or earbuds to help enhance the listening experience. Sending your clients a quality set of wireless earbuds will allow them to escape and permit them a little “me time” while they work, run errands, or relax outdoors.
With cooler temperatures on the horizon, sending your clients cozy items they can wear as they venture outdoors is a thoughtful gift idea. If you know your clients enjoy skiing, or other outdoor winter sports, sending them protective eyewear, hats, or gloves can help them stay warm and comfortable, so they can get back to doing what they love, despite frigid weather.
Another benefit to this great gift idea is that you can include your company’s logo design on each wearable item, so whenever your clients put them on, they’ll be reminded of your team.
If you’re looking to delight your client’s taste buds, go the extra mile with a carefully selected gourmet gift. From charcuterie boards and chocolate pairings to breakfast bagel spreads, dipped fruits, or branded cookies and brownies, your options for customization really are endless!
Gourmet gifts sent to your clients’ corporate offices or to individual addresses will be greeted with big smiles and will indulge happy memories.
From bath bombs to lotions infused with essential oils, nothing beats a little self-pampering treatment, especially after a long year. Give your clients permission to indulge in a little self-care with personalized self-care products
Did you want to send a gift that’s the “spirit” of celebrations? Etched wine bottles pair the delicious taste of popular wines with a personal message you want your gift’s recipient to remember.
Sending clients a bottle of quality champagne, for instance, with the words “Let’s toast to another great year together,” is a simple, yet effective way to show your appreciation for their business now and in the future!
If you know your client is a grill master at heart or a culinary genius who loves to experiment with different herbs, spices, and sauces, why not celebrate these unique skills with high-end kitchenware tools and custom spice kits?
If any of your clients are dedicated pet moms and dads, you can be sure they’ll appreciate you including their favorite companion in your holiday gift-giving efforts.
Consider sending toys, healthy treats, mind-boosting games, or even a comfy pet bed for their companion to lounge in while at the home office.
If there is one thing we’ve learned over the past few years it’s that family and loved ones, regardless of relation, are what matter most. And what better way to connect with those you hold most dear? With a game night!
Sending classic board games, for example, bring people together and will encourage a much-needed break from the computer screen to immerse in some quality time and good memories with close friends and family!
