Think outside the box (of chocolate)

You had a great year and it’s time to thank your top clients and corporate partners with a little gift for the holidays. Send them a gift that will really stand out and let them know how much you appreciate them! From fun, holiday treats to unique monthly subscriptions, there is something for everyone!

1. Fancy Fortune Cookies

These are not your ordinary fortune cookies. Fancy Fortune Cookies can be customized from a wide variety of colors, flavors, dips, and toppings, along with a personalized message tucked inside!

2. Caramel Apples

Caramel and chocolate dipped apples are both festive and beautiful. Check out some of these elegant arrangements by Shari’s Berries or Harry and David.

3. World Coffee Subscription

Keep the coffee flowing with a subscription to the Atlas Coffee Club. Your clients or corporate partners will receive a bag of exotic, freshly roasted coffee each month from around the world.

4. Personalized Desk Calendars

If you’re looking for many small gifts to buy in bulk, this is a great option. Clients who travel frequently love these little “at-a-glance” calendars to help them make their travel plans. Customize your very own, branded calendars with Shutterfly or Vistaprint.

5. S’well Bottle

Save some plastic by giving the gift of a S’well Bottle! These beautiful bottles come in many colors and work well for both hot and cold drinks. They are perfect for your clients to use at their desk or on the go.

6. Breakfast for the Office

Find a local cafe or bakery that delivers and give the gift of a delicious breakfast. Bagels with cream cheese, fruit trays, or some assorted pastries will be a welcome surprise on a busy morning. Don’t forget the juice or coffee!

7. Bring in a Food Truck

This works well for a corporate client in a warm location. Arrange a date with management to pay for staff lunches or desserts. This is a treat the whole office will love!

8. Make a Donation

Does your recipient have a favorite charity or cause they care about? Consider making a donation in their name. This is a powerful way to show your appreciation and give back at the same time.

9. Massage for a Day

What office employee doesn’t need a midday massage around the holidays? Hire a massage service to provide chair massages at an office for a few hours. This is another option you’ll want to arrange with the management in advance.

10. Try the World Subscription

Here’s another year-long gift for those who love travel! A Try the World subscription will send your recipient a box full of unusual global goodies to sample each month. They may receive sweet treats like cacao nibs and blueberries from Peru or Turkish peanut bars.

11. Vacation Upgrades

Give your top clients a little something extra for their next vacation. Pay for a seat upgrade, a gift for their hotel room or an activity on their itinerary. If you know your vendors well, you might even be able to snag an upgrade for free or a great deal.

Whether you’re expressing thanks to a great business partner or a top client, these fun gifts are sure to spread some holiday cheer. Don’t forget to send handwritten notes or cards along with your gift. It’s a simple gesture that goes a long way!
