Holiday Gifting

Giving a holiday gift doesn’t only have to mean Christmas gifts; we find gifting out of season has greater impact. Try an employee gift on World Chocolate Day or a care package during Mental Health Awareness Week as an appreciation gift when they may not be expecting it.

Food Based Gifts

If you’re working with a smaller budget, you can keep the price down by sending snacks. Keep any allergies in mind and send sweets, snacks and tea/coffee.

Personalisation is also important which is why all our gifts – whether you’re sending 100 or 1,000 - come with a free handwritten note. We take the time to perfectly (and neatly) put your thoughts on paper.

There’s also the option to create your own gift box. Shop our curated selection of corporate gifts here. Work to a colour scheme or use-case (stationery, relaxation, food) if you’re looking for gifting inspiration.
