Top 8 Employee and Client Gift Ideas

Nov 2, 2020 | Employee gifts

As the end of the year approaches, businesses and organizations are planning their customary appreciation programs with employee and client gift ideas for their team and customers. This year, with pandemic restrictions still in place, recognition programs, and business holiday celebrations present new challenges.

Since solving marketing challenges is our sweet spot here at Sunrise Printing, we have come up with creative ways to make this year’s holiday business gifts programs as effective as ever for our clients, and we want to share some of those ideas with you. 

One thing that’s different this year, is that for the most part, there won’t be any in-person events or office holiday parties where the gifts were typically distributed. This means that business gifts have to be dropped shipped directly to employees or client’s homes, which adds time to the turnaround of the project. 

However, the package itself provides an extra opportunity for branding and wow factor. After all, you want your gift to be clearly different from the barrage of Amazon boxes they’ve been getting for the past months. 

And remember, we handle everything, from the sourcing of the products to the custom box design, packaging to drop shipping.

When it comes to the items to go in the package, we go for a combination of items that are quality and fit the recipient’s lifestyle or work environment and also represent your organization’s culture. 

Let’s have a look at our top ten  favorite gift products

1. Custom-printed blankets

A nice comfy blanket is always a welcomed gift. You can just add a greeting card for a personal touch, or pair it with a tumbler and hot chocolate packets. Finish the gift by presenting it in a wooden box that people will want to keep and put to good use. There are many styles and price points to chose from, we’ll be happy to find the perfect one for your project.

2. Branded tech products

Quality tech products make great gifts and there are many different things to choose from. Better yet, you can send a kit like this Origaudio set presented in a very nice-looking box for an elevated retail look. , which includes an 8000mAh wireless power bank, a wireless portable surround sound speaker, and a set of wireless earbuds.  Any and all of these items can be customized with your logo and also personalized with your gift recipient’s name.

Personalized Branded tech products are one of great gifts for any season.

3. A gift basket with a mix of gourmet treats

A nice basket filled with gourmet sweets and savory treats is one of those tried and true business gifts that stands the test of time.  There are so many options available you will always find one that suits your business requirements perfectly. They are also easy to dropship as they come packed in their own shipping boxes. Contact us to discuss your options.

4. A customized notebook or journal 

Notebooks and journals remain a favorite amongst people of all ages in this digital age. They are available in so many options and styles that we can always find a match for your project that your audience will love. You can get them in their own gift box for a perceived higher value gift.

Everyone has been under a lot more stress than usual, and a scented candle can make a thoughtful gift. It works well as a stand-alone gift or it can be part of a set by adding a few other items.

6. A branded ring light

This is one gift everyone will be happy to receive. With virtual meetings being the new conference rooms, a branded ring light is literally the perfect gift for employees and clients.

7. Custom branded trendy backpacks

A quality backpack is always welcomed. There are many different styles available including brand names, we recommend to always go for quality and fashion to ensure your recipient willl want to use it.

8. Quality Branded Drinkware, Hot or Cold

Drinkware is another favorite when it comes to company swag. You can get just about anything you can think of when it comes to drinkware, as there are many style choices for each purpose. These are 3 examples of popular styles.
