There’s no denying that this year has been an odd one again for the some of us, in both a personal and professional manner. It is therefore only natural that employers, business owners and managers alike will be looking to treat those who have had a positive impact on their businesses with surprise Christmas gifts.
As the experts in gift giving, we thought that we’d help you bring a little bit of Christmas joy to your staff, colleagues and partners with some of the best Christmas gift ideas out there.
Showing your appreciation of staff, employees and clients at Christmas
What better way to bring a little bit of the festive spirit that we usually expect at this time of year than with a thoughtful Christmas gift? It’s a great way of making sure that people who impact your business in a positive way feel appreciated. This includes not only staff and employees, but also suppliers, producers and other important stakeholders.
Sending corporate gifts can be beneficial in building and preserving long-lasting relationships with existing clients, as well as helping to impress or win over potential new clients during a time when even the smallest of financial contracts are being closely monitored by those in charge of money.
Thank you gifts to all those behind the scenes - from customers and suppliers to business partners and stakeholders - at Christmas also serve to help reinforce ongoing gratitude and thanks during what may have been a difficult year.

Here’s our suggestion of some of the best corporate gift ideas out there:
Corporate Christmas gifts for your employees and staff
Many employees and members of staff are working more from home, isolated from the daily buzz of work life - whether that be discussing the weekend, talking about life in general, or asking how the kids are doing - all these interactions are not happening, as much.
A corporate Christmas hamper is the perfect gift, allowing the team to have their own celebration from the comfort of their own home. You can even do a joint 'unboxing' or reveal over a team video call.
Our Bearing Gifts Christmas Hamper (£39) is one of our best-selling hampers; it’s a great non-alcoholic option featuring sweet and savoury treats, from popcorn to mince pies and ginger thins to Xmas fruit cake.
Another favourite every year that employees and staff love to receive as a Christmas gift is the Luxury Cream Tea Gift Hamper (£45). It features a mouth-watering mix of traditional scones and cake, along with cream and jam (or jam and cream, depending where you’re from), gourmet chocolates, English tea, biscuits and fudge.
Our Festive Mulled Wine & Mulled Wine Gift Box (£22) is a great option for those wanting to give a more festive-themed corporate gift to a truly special member of staff, featuring a fantastic bottle of Jacob Marley’s mulled wine and luxury mince pies...it's one of our very best Christmas chocolate hampers.
If your team is smaller and your budget can stretch a little further, or you’re looking to reward and thank senior members of the team or those who truly deserve it, the Family Christmas Hamper (£110) is a heartfelt gift to send, and one that can be enjoyed by their entire family. That is what Christmas is about after all, isn’t it?
Corporate Christmas gifts to treat the whole team
Corporate food gift baskets always go down a treat; after all, who doesn’t like food? For teams that are still working on-site or closely togehter, the Treat The Team Christmas Hamper (£100) is sure to tickle everyone’s taste buds, with something for everyone to enjoy tucking into, including gourmet popcorn, a mini pannettone and festive treats aplenty. Perfect to enjoy together on Christmas eve or the last working day before the holidays.
Corporate Christmas present ideas for your clients and customers
The Classic Wine & Cheese Gift Box (£30) is perfect as a gift for an individual, as is the Prosecco & Chocolates Gift Hamper (£35), both featuring a mouth-watering bottle with hand picked treats that complement the offering.
Say thanks with a Christmas hamper to those that have influenced your business in a positive way on all levels. Show those who have supported you what it means. You can't go wrong with our classy Champagne and Truffles hamper (£59); in our signature cream box. It's a great way to 'toast' another successful year.
When it comes to key stakeholders and investors in the business, it never hurts to spend a little more to show them just how grateful you and the business are for all that they’ve done and continue to do through these unprecedented times.
From your workplace to their, a sign of recognition from Business to Business (B2B), why not have one of our hand-selected Grand Christmas Hamper (£280) delivered? It is the epitome of luxury Christmas corporate gifts, and will go a long way in helping you say ‘thank you’, ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘here’s to 2022’.
At the centre of the hamper are bottles of Autréau-Roualet Champagne, Croft Port and both red and white wine. Accompanying that is a plethora of treats for all tastes, from award-winning cheese and crackers, through to a traditional Christmas pudding, mince pies, gourmet chocolates and much, much more.

The ins and outs of Corporate Christmas gifts
When should we be looking to place corporate Christmas gift orders?
The Christmas season starts early for us, September 1st to be exact, and we’re already seeing that corporate gift orders are up over 1,100% this festive season in comparison to last year. That might have something to do with the news that Britons are being encouraged to shop early this year in order to avoid disappointment – what with most people turning online for their gifts this year.
Ordering online and having festive business gifts delivered to employees, customers and stakeholders homes is going to be a key trend for the upcoming festive season in the current climate – not just with many continuing to work from home, but also because if there’s ever been a time to thank and reward, it’s definitely this year!
We always advise customers to plan their corporate Christmas gift options far in advance of the big day – not just this year.
We have a great ‘business gifting tax guide’ too that’s well worth a read, explaining the ins and outs of gifting and how much you can spend on your staff, teams, clients, suppliers, stakeholders and more before additional costs are incurred.
