September 16, 2022 / Customer Relationships

Corporate gifts are a great way to appreciate those who support your business with items they’ll be happy to receive and will want to use. It’s essential to have these gifts on-hand all year; no matter the purpose, you’ll always want to be mindful of what you have in stock to determine if it’s a good time to freshen things up with new items or order more of your go-to gifts.

The start of fall is synonymous with holiday prep. From customers and employees to those you’ve partnered with on projects throughout the year, now’s the time to show them some love. You’ll want to start tackling your gift list now to ensure you get the coolest items in time for the holidays. There are many items trending right now, but these are five of our favorites.

1. Cold-Weather Apparel

Apparel is one of the most popular gift items at any time of year. During the holidays, it’s a great time to take advantage of cold-weather items like hoodies, insulated jackets, and hat, glove, and scarf sets. New styles are released regularly, and you have the ability to put your logo on display for employees or be a little more subtle for customers. This versatility ensures your gift (and brand) will be worn all season.

2. Tech Gadgets

During a time of hybrid and remote work schedules, tech gifts are essential to keep your team connected. From power banks and charging docks to tech organizers and computer backpacks, you can ensure your team and customers get items they need and will want to use.

3. Bundles & Kits

The best all-in-one solutions are gift bundles and kits. These gifts come complete with all the items needed to make for an all-around experience customers and employees alike will enjoy. The best part is you can find the perfect custom gift for your recipient(s), whether you want to treat them to a Taco Tuesday night or an at-home spa day.

4. Cozy Comfort

Comfort items are always on trend during the holidays. Help your customers and team brace for the cold weather with items like sherpa blankets and branded socks and slippers. You can also consider items that create a cozy ambiance, such as candles or an aromatherapy gift set to complete your gift.

5. Office Gear

When it comes to corporate gifts, you can guarantee items that can be used in the office will always be welcomed by employees and customers alike. Help them get ready for the new year with bamboo-bound journals and portfolios. You can also spruce up their workspace with desk toys like coaster game sets.

Supply Chain Reminder

While the summer has given us a bit of a reprieve from supply chain issues, please remember that it’s still impacting labor and product availability, and it will get busier during the holiday season. Place your orders early and in bulk to mitigate these challenges—and try to remain flexible.
