Best Christmas Gifts for Employees

July 06, 2022 8 min read

We started talking about Christmas gifts for employees earlier this year. The holiday season is most likely the most popular time of year for gift-giving. We give gifts to show employees our appreciation, love, and respect, and to spread joy. In this list post, we'll go over some of the most unique and thoughtful employee holiday gift ideas. There are thirty high-quality, one-of-a-kind gifts, so let's get started on our gift guide right away.

1. Cocktail-making Kit

This list could not have begun any other way. A special cocktail-making kit that includes all of the tools you need to make the yummiest cocktails is a must-have when it comes to great Christmas gifts. It's as opulent as a corporate gift should be, but it can also be part of a fun, festive gift basket.

2. Popcorn Mini Popper

Another fantastic holiday gift idea is a popcorn maker that produces a single serving of hot, delicious, fresh popcorn in record time. It makes it extremely simple for anyone to prepare the healthiest, quickest snack. Furthermore, it is ideal for holiday home gatherings and watching movies or playing board games with loved ones.

3. Take Care Kit

A take care gift box is one of the most beautiful and thoughtful gift ideas on this list.

The wide range of gifts given out at Christmas puts a lot of pressure on all of us to come up with truly imaginative and thoughtful gifts. This relaxation kit, which includes plant seeds and an aroma diffuser, is all you need to elevate traditional gift-giving.

4. Couch Throw Blanket 

Do you know what goes great with a popcorn maker and the sage diffuser? A high-quality couch throw that can also be used as a blanket on a cold Christmas Day. This eco-friendly swag idea, made from sustainably sourced cotton, is sure to make any lounge feel warmer and cozier. It can also be used for picnics and outdoor gatherings. Moving on to another Christmas gift suggestion.

5. Bamboo Fiber Coaster Set

The first promotional item on this list was a cocktail-making kit. A set of bamboo fiber coasters would be a lovely addition to that gift. They are long-lasting, minimal, and can be reused. Furthermore, they are extremely simple to personalize with your company logo.

Let us move on to the next one.

6. Lunch Cooler Set

Christmas is about gathering with family and loved ones to eat, drink, and be merry.

When the holidays are over, you'll want to have a lunch cooler ready to take any leftovers to work. That is why a lunch cooler set that includes a bento box and reusable cutlery made of eco-friendly materials can be very useful.

7. Glass Set

Who doesn't enjoy a drink in the privacy of their own home? The pandemic has made us all more aware of the importance of having everything we need in our homes and enjoying ourselves as much as possible, even when we are unable to leave our homes. A high-quality glass set, such as the one shown below, makes an excellent appreciation gift.

8. Fleece Blanket

We mentioned earlier in this post that a throw blanket is a great addition to any home during the winter. This one is a little different; it's a warm and cozy fleece blanket that can be used all year, especially on cold Christmas days and nights. When it comes to staying at home with friends and family, having long conversations, and watching our favorite all-time classic Christmas movies, we absolutely adore a fleece blanket.

9. Grill Apron with BBQ Set

You might want to throw a barbecue to celebrate the holiday season. A grill apron and the best BBQ set will be ideal for such an occasion. It's no secret that people nowadays grill all year long in all weather conditions! Choose stainless steel BBQ tools, a long-lasting and washable grill apron, and possibly some customized spices, which are always a part of any great BBQ experience.

10. Market Bag

A stylish, reusable market bag can be a very useful accessory for any Christmas shopping trip to the grocery store.

11. Christmas Snacks Box

A Christmas snack box is the ideal employee gift, with everything from marshmallows, candy, and chocolate truffles to salted pretzels and pumpkin nut bars. The number of snacks and the variety of items you include in such a gift box are entirely up to you. To add a personal touch and make this gift more thoughtful, we recommend including a personalized message with holiday wishes, handwritten by you if possible.

12. Foodie Gift Set 

A foodie gift set is yet another gift idea for successful holiday and corporate gifting. A recipe book, some premium spices and sauces, and a high-quality tote bag to put everything in can help to elevate your employees' Christmas tables.

13. Hydroponic Planter

Consider this hydroponic planter employee gift idea to be one of the most unique gifts you can give to your staff. This type of gift is ideal for remote employees and comes at a time when we could all use a little more green in our workplaces. Consider these meaningful gifts as an alternative to the office supplies we all have on hand. There's nothing wrong with wishing someone a Merry Christmas with a succulent!

14. Daylight Desk Lamp

Winter is the season with the fewest hours of daylight and the longest nights.

However, natural light is essential, particularly when working from home.

That is why a daylight desk lamp can make an excellent Christmas employee gift.

It provides you with the daily dose of sunshine you require to carry on with your daily tasks and improve your mood. In fact, a daylight desk lamp would be ideal for the following item.

15. Bamboo Lap Desk

Working from home has a number of advantages, including the ability to work from the comfort of your couch, though we wouldn't recommend this as a home office habit.

A bamboo lap desk is a very useful item that allows your laptop to properly ventilate while sitting on your lap to watch a movie or do some work. It's strong and stylish, and you can use it for a variety of tasks, including using your laptop. Furthermore, it can be a very successful travel promo gift when you need to use your laptop but there is no desk available.

  1. Laptop Sleeve

16. Laptop Sleeve

Similarly, a laptop sleeve is an essential accessory for protecting your laptop while traveling, going to work, or simply carrying it to a friend's house to watch a Christmas movie. When it comes to creating a personalized gift for your employees, there are numerous colors and sizes to choose from.

17. Bluetooth Headphones

People enjoy listening to music on a variety of occasions throughout the day.

That's why a set of high-quality headphones is a never-fail deluxe gift.

18. Sound Machine

It falls into both the wellness and tech gift categories; a sound machine is one of the best premium Christmas gifts for staff that comes to mind. We appreciate a good promotional sound machine because it promotes well being by assisting people in sleeping better and adding a sense of relaxation and calmness to any environment.

19. Hip Pack

Whether you like fashion or not, you've probably noticed that hip packs have been popular in recent years. Younger people, in particular, have replaced bulky backpacks and other types of handbags with trendy hip packs. A hip pack can hold all of your essentials, including a cell phone, charger or power bank, earbuds, a fabulous keychain with keys, and a wallet.

Furthermore, this one can be a particularly good gift for employees with teenagers.

20. Beanie 

As a result, a unisex knit beanie like this one will be much appreciated by your employees.

In addition, for smaller businesses, consider personalizing each beanie with an embroidery design.

21. Hooded Sweatshirt

A hooded sweatshirt is a popular promotional item for all businesses that also makes a great option for Christmas gifting. Friendly reminder: Promotional hoodies turn people into walking billboards, so make them as good and unique as possible to avoid people throwing them in the back of their closets and never wearing them.

22. Holidays Duffel Bag

We've talked about beanies, hoodies, and Bluetooth headphones, but don't forget that for many people, Christmas means traveling. If some of your employees are among the fortunate few who travel somewhere new for the holidays, you should try to get them travel-ready with a handy duffel bag.

23. Backpack

A cool custom backpack is a great alternative to the ever-useful duffel bag.

Socks that do not slip. Nothing says "Christmas night at home watching Netflix" like a pair of non-slip socks that keep your feet warm and cozy. They come in a variety of colors and designs, allowing you to be as creative and playful as you want when designing the best custom socks for your employees. Author's Tip: Combine a pair of these with other perks, such as a DIY Christmas card or a bottle of wine, to make your gift more thoughtful and one-of-a-kind.

25. Dress Socks Gift Set

When you want to give your employees a personal and Christmas-themed gift, a dress socks gift set is ideal. They're also a great coworker gift, especially for that one coworker who enjoys wearing unusual dress socks. If you're a Secret Santa, make sure to surprise them with unique designs and humorous quotes on their dress socks.

26. Vegan Leather Toiletry Case

A vegan leather toiletry case is always a good idea because it can be used by both men and women, and it's especially useful for those quick Christmas getaways we mentioned earlier.

A case like this can help any traveler become more organized and keep track of their cosmetics, toiletries, and other products.

27. Athletic Gear Gift Set

People tend to spend more time at home around the holidays, doing something good for themselves, such as exercising. Having said that, an athletic gear gift set might be just what they need to get off the couch and start moving. A scrunchie, a pair of absorbent ankle socks, an athletic headband, and a cooling towel are likely to be included in a gift set like this. Please contact us if you have any questions about what else you could include in such a gift set.

28. Reader's Glasses

Whether you're constantly writing Christmas cards, sending text messages with holiday greetings, or watching Christmas movies every other night, a pair of reader glasses can come in handy. They can be reused and, as you can see, there are no restrictions when it comes to customizing them, so you can make them as fun and crazy as you want before sharing them with your employees for Christmas.

29. Hot Chocolate with Custom Mug

The second-to-last item we have for you is a Christmas must-have: a hot chocolate pouch with a personalized coffee mug. On a cold winter day, who doesn't enjoy a cup of hot chocolate? Give your employees the pleasure of such an experience by providing them with a thoughtful set of high-quality chocolate powder and a beautiful custom mug that they will use for years to come.

30. Bottle Opener Gift Set

A bottle opener gift set rounds out our list of thirty unique and thoughtful employee Christmas gift ideas. A corkscrew, pourer, and wine stopper are all included in this type of gift set.
