Nailing the corporate gift can be tricky. Whether you’re self-employed and looking to show gratitude to your clients, or want to thank your boss for another wonderful 12 months, the corporate gift really needs to set the right tone.

Here are some ideas to help you confidently swipe your credit card this festive season:

  • R ‘n R. The gift of ‘relaxation’ is a great corporate gift idea after a busy year of business. Maybe an accommodation voucher for a weekend away so that person and their partner/family can put their feet up and recharge? Or a day spa voucher?
  • Adventure. Being memorable is key to the successful corporate gift. What about a voucher for iFLY, a kayaking tour, abseiling lessons, or even a Gold Coast/Moreton Bay boat cruise?
  • Grog. Ok, yes, alcohol is always a good go-to corporate gift. But don’t just send a boring bottle. Make it memorable. Pop your bottle into a gorgeous picnic basket, add a rug, some nice glasses and a bocce set to turn that bottle of bubbles into a thoughtful picnic.
  • Business Essentials. If you want your gift recipient to keep your business top of mind, a gift for their office/workplace is a strategic move. Don’t skimp here, though. If you want them to be looking at that gift every day and thinking about you, it needs to send a message of pizzazz! It all depends on your line of business but a bespoke monogrammed laptop sleeve/bag might work? A trendy desk organiser? A gorgeous leather diary?
