The season of giving is almost here! As the countdown to Christmas 2023 begins, the 'to do' list inevitably grows longer. Finishing off those nagging end of year tasks, finalising the Christmas lunch menu, making plans for summer holidays, and of course, figuring out staff gifts to thank employees and suppliers for another great year (while also planning a killer end and of year office party!).

Creating and organising staff Xmas gifts can be a tiresome task - how can we do things differently this year? What should we get Bob from accounts? What is the best way to reward our awesome employees?  

Don't worry, we are here to help! With a team dedicated to pulling together swoon-worthy Xmas gift boxes and baskets, we promise to help you create employee Christmas gifts that will be the talk of the staff Christmas party! With Christmas fast approaching, we have put together our 3 tips for corporate gift giving to ensure your office staff and supplier Christmas gifts go down a treat!

1. Customise your gifts!

With over 140 different gift basket options, we like to think we have something to please all palates. However, we may not always have the perfect gift which is why our gift baskets are fully customisable. If something is not quite right, get in touch and we will work with you to perfect the contents of your Xmas staff gifts and make sure you are 100% happy. Out with the Sav and in with a nice drop of red wine, or change some of the sweets for something a little more savoury. The sky is the limit! 

2. Put your stamp on it!

Once you have found the perfect selection of gourmet food and wine, it’s time to think about how to present your Christmas gift hamper. Our custom made matte black gift boxes are elegant and classy, and often they do the trick as they are, but incorporating your branding can be a sure fire way to gain extra kudos and remind the team and your customers how much you care. Think branded ribbon, custom gift tags, stickers and more! 

3. Add a card.

Now you have the right products and the best presentation, it’s time to add a personal touch to your gifts. A short and simple note to say, ‘thanks for the effort this year’ and ‘Merry Christmas to you and the family’ is the finishing touch to your employee gifts!

 We are here to help.
