10 Branded Corporate Holiday Gifts That Don't SuckPosted on 12/07/18
The holidays are around the corner (again), which means it's time to decide on employee gifts. Branded gifts are a great way to advertise your business, but none of your employees want another drink koozie with your logo on it. Here are 10 ideas for branded corporate holiday gifts that won't end up in the garbate.
1. A Flash Drive That Goes Everywhere
You never need a flash drive until you don't have one. Save your employees from having to go out and buy another drive next time they need one with this handy Slim Credit Card Flash Drive. It slips right into a wallet like a credit card, so they'll always have one. Don't like plastic? Go a step up with aluminum.
2. A Cell Phone Power Bank
Everyone hates running out of juice. It could be during a critical time, like a conference call, or when they're watching cat videos on YouTube. This 4000 mAh Air Power Bank will save the day.
3. Coffee, Coffee, Coffee
Coffee is the lifeblood of many of your employees. In fact, it's what probably gets them in their chairs by 8:00 a.m. Give the gift of coffee and your employees won't be disappointed. This Boca Java Gift Set has three flavors, hot cocoa, and sugar sticks in a branded faux leather reusable box.
4. The Gift of Yum
Food is a corporate gift item that always goes over well, because the only things that ever end up in the garbage are the wrappers. This Slate Serving Plate with Shelf-Stable Cheese & Sausage pairs delicious cheese and sausage with a branded solid stone plate your employees can use for entertaining.
5. A Portable Place to Sit
Forget camping chairs (although we have those too). This portable unique lounge chair lets your employees sit or lay wherever they please. Be sure to tell them to take it home for camping or 4th of July fireworks, unless you plan on instituting a corporate nap policy.
6. An Inukshuk
Who wants to store paperclips, binder clips, and metal pens in a drawer when you can stick them on a stack of rocks? It sounds odd, but an Inukshuk is actually a puzzle and stress reliever all in one. Give the gift of inner peace and utility to your employees this holiday season.
7. Hand Sanitizer
Boring, right? No way! Okay, maybe a little, but think about it -- holiday season is also cold and flu season. Show your employees how much their health means to you by gifting them with any one of these great hand sanitizer products -- keychain hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer wipes, foaming hand sanitizer, hand sanitizer spray, or just a really big bottle of hand sanitizer gel. Not only are these gifts affordable, they'll save you money when your employees don't call in sick. Don't worry, they'll thank you when their kids skip the flu this season.
8. A High Quality Water Bottle
Go beyond plastic water bottles and spring for something high quality and long lasting. This 17oz. MOD Vacuum Water Bottle is stainless steel, copper lined, and vacuum insulated to keep drinks cold. A big, bright logo adds the finishing touch.
9. The Coolest Desktop Calendar Ever
Appeal to your employee's inner child with a fun, unique desktop calendar. The Made By Humans Perpetual Puzzle Calendar is an interesting way to display a calendar year after year, with color coded blocks for important dates.
10. Not Just Any Chocolate
Chocolate is a favorite gift this time of year, but quality matters when it comes to chocolate. Choose high-quality chocolate that melts in your mouth versus cheaper, flaky chocolate that tastes like cardboard. This 8 Piece Truffle Box is sure to be a winner.
When choosing branded gifts for employees, think about what you would like. If it's not useful, beautiful, or delicious to you, it probably won't be to them. This is a time to show your employees gratitude, so whatever gift you give, make sure it doesn't suck.
