Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Idea #1: Wheeled Duffel Bag

We’re getting started with our list of the best business gift ideas with a premium wheeled duffel bag, a fantastic travel promo gift.

We couldn’t love a travel bag more than this one here.

It’s the perfect gift for some of your most loyal customers because it’s high quality, very useful, and will last a lifetime. 

Plus, it gives you endless opportunities to feature your company logo in an efficient way.

Idea #2: Ornament Seed Kits

With the holiday season being right around the corner, we want to make sure that you’re also considering festive gift ideas for your clients. 

The gift we’re about to show you is a great holiday gift

It’s an ornament seed kit!

You may have never heard of it before, but this beautiful kit includes a festive ornament, which, when the holidays are over, you can turn into a plant.

Instead of giving your clients a branded succulent, you give them an eco-friendly branded item that can be turned into a fun indoor activity. 

Idea #3: Camp Cup

A quite basic, but still one of the best, corporate gifts is a branded camp cup.

It’s durable, washable, and can be used endless times which means that your branding is going to stay with your clients for a long time. 

On that note, if you decide to go for a promotional mug you should know that there are many options in terms of sizes, colors, and materials you can choose from to make sure your mug is as personalized and unique as it gets. 

Idea #4: Bucket Bag Cooler

Next time you’re looking for thoughtful gifts for your clients, why don’t you customize a bucket bag cooler like the one shown below?

It’s very special and handy and can totally be the perfect gift for those clients of yours who enjoy picnics and outdoor parties.

What’s great about this one is that it’s far more stylish than your usual bag cooler and offers companies a very modern approach in terms of design.

Idea #5: Eco Water Bottle

Y’know what goes great with a cool bucket bag cooler? An eco water bottle that keeps both cold and warm drinks at the right temperature. 

Fortunately, reusable water bottles are gaining popularity and the number of people using them is increasing. 

Giving a bottle like this to a new client together with a thank you note is a great idea for small businesses who are looking for appreciation gifts on a budget. 

Idea #6: Terracotta Kit

A branded terracotta kit that’s used for growing a houseplant is one of the most interesting and unique gift ideas that last in time. 

It’s an amazing gift for celebrating new businesses and life milestones.

Put this in a gift box with food gifts if you want to create the perfect housewarming gift for your clients and customers. 

Idea #7: Premium Bluetooth Speaker

Branded tech swag is one of the most popular promotional gift categories. 

What’s even more popular are premium branded gadgets that can be used on a number of different occasions, including outdoor parties and road trips. 

A promotional premium Bluetooth speaker, like the one shown above, is one of the best corporate gifts for long-term clients you want to thank for their support and commitment to your business. 

Author’s Note: They’re more expensive than other products on this list so you can save them for special occasions. 

Idea #8: All-in-One Bag

A fully functional all-in-one tote bag is a gift that can be given away every time you’re looking for a little thoughtful gift for new customers and clients. 

It’s useful for overnight trips and for carrying your workout essentials easily. 

Why not stuff it with a care package of chocolate and baked goods to make a great client appreciation gift?

Idea #9: Packable Hammock

For those adventurous clients and customers who like unique outdoor activities, a packable hammock will be a real treat.

A high-quality and durable packable hammock can truly elevate the client experience with your brand and show them how imaginative and thoughtful your brand can be. 

It’s a nice company gift for clients and customers you know personally and know that they love a good hammock to relax in. 

Idea #10: Sling Bag

A stylish and practical sling bag would go great with a packable hammock as well as other products that are also included in this list, such as a stainless steel tumbler and a packable jacket. 

If you’re making Christmas gift baskets for clients and customers who love sports and outdoor activities, make sure that you put a branded sling bag into the basket. 

They’re going to love how stable, lightweight, and durable this sling bag is. 

Idea #11: Bottle Opener and Cup Holder

A great thing about branded items is that you can put your branding on virtually any product you want. 

Even if the product you want is a bottle opener that’s also a cup holder. 

You may have never seen one of these before, but trust me when I say that they’re the BEST item for house and office parties. 

All you have to do is to magnetically mount this to any flat metal surface, such as a grill or in your car. 

We particularly recommend this gift for customers who enjoy throwing office parties and happy hours. 

Idea #12: Eco Lunch Cooler

An eco lunch cooler does exactly what it promises to do. 

It keeps your food and drinks cool so you don’t have to worry about freshness. 

Plus, it’s made of recycled, laminated, non-woven material that’s fully wipeable, which means that it’s super easy to clean and remove any food or stains from the inside or outside. 

Idea #13: Card Holder

When it comes to corporate gift giving, a branded card holder is simply a must. 

Whether it’s to put notes, business cards, or credit cards in, a cardholder is a very handy accessory that’s gaining popularity because of its sleek look and its small and convenient size. 

Anyone would appreciate a high-quality, stylish cardholder, but we think it’ll be the perfect gift for professionals who need to have a few essentials in their pockets all the time, like real estate agents for example. 

Author’s Tip: Surprise your clients and customers with a gift card from your company in the card holder. 

Idea #14: Stainless Steel Tumbler

There are some client gifts that are simply bound to make your corporate gift giving a success. 

One of these gifts is a merchandise staple, a stainless steel tumbler

Promotional tumblers are very popular because people use them multiple times a week and you can always own more than one tumbler. 

That means that a tumbler is a great gift for anyone, even those people who already have one at home. 

Author’s Tip: For the holidays, accompany your company tumbler with a fruit basket to make your gift more festive and impactful. 

Idea #15: Glass Set with Carafe

If you’re looking for a high-end gift to share with your most loyal customers, you’ve just found it. 

A premium glass set with an elegant carafe is a gift made to amaze and impress your customers. 

Especially if you decide to put this set together with a bottle of wine and a cheese board, you’ll be creating the ideal gift for any home gatherings lover out there. 

You’ve already seen fifteen client gift ideas and we’ve got another sixteen to go. 

Keep reading to find out what else we have for you. 

Idea #16: The Secret is in the Sauce Gift Set

Number sixteen is a special sauce gift set that we know will make everyone happy. 

Such a gift screams BBQ and garden party so we think it’s a great idea to share it with your clients and employees if you want to impress them with a non-standard, creative gift. 

There’s a number of different flavors and you can totally customize the sauce bottles to promote your brand. 

Idea #17: Festive Coffee Mugs

Festive celebrations are right around the corner. 

That means festive coffee mugs and other glittery drinkware will have their moment very soon. 

To enhance and maintain business relationships this holiday season, put together a client gift box to remember with magical festive coffee mugs – for the coffee lovers – and a thoughtful greeting card. 

Idea #18: Deluxe Cutting Board

If you’ve used a deluxe cutting board before then you know what I mean when I say that it can totally elevate your kitchen. 

It combines durability and portability and totally fits into a gift hamper with a curated selection of branded tableware pieces. 

Author’s Tip: Prompt your clients and customers to post their food preparation photos using your branded deluxe chopping board on their social media and tag your brand. 

Idea #19: Charging Dock Station

Whether you’ve seen one of these before or not, you’ll probably agree with me when I say that a charging dock station would be a great addition to your home or office desk. 

A charging station, like the one you see in the screenshot above, can elevate any workspace with its stylish and minimalist design. 

Plus, it’s extremely useful and helps keep your workspace uncluttered and organized. 

Idea #20: Bamboo Journal Book

A bamboo-bound journal book is yet another unique corporate gift we want with you. 

It comes with an elastic closure, ribbon page marker, and a pen loop which means that if you want, you can totally add a cool custom pen to this journal book and gift them together.

What’s really great about this particular journal we’re showing you here is that it’s an eco-friendly product made with FSC sustainably sourced bamboo.

Idea #21: Packable Jacket

A little further up in this post, we talked about how cool it’d be to give away to your clients and customers a sling bag together with a packable jacket

Let’s focus on the jacket this time. 

Made with recycled polyester and with a recycled zipper tape, this wind-resistant and waterproof jacket is ideal for days that start with high temperatures but end up being quite chilly. 

It’s cool and comfy branded apparel for different occasions and times of the year. 

Idea #22: Candle

As we move towards the end of our list, we thought we’d give you some client gift ideas for gifts that might not last forever, like others in this list, but are bound to make anyone getting them happy and relaxed. 

A branded relaxing candle is exactly that kind of gift. 

It can be personalized to match your company branding and will help to keep your brand top of mind. 


Think about it. 

A candle is something someone puts in the lounge, which means that they’ll get to see part of your brand on a regular basis. 

Plus, they’ll subconsciously connect your brand with positive feelings of being calm and relaxed. 

Author’s Note: A candle is one of the best gifts if you want to create birthday gifts for your best clients or if you’re putting together corporate holiday gift baskets. 

Idea #23: Winter Snood

I bet the previous gift idea has made you think of winter and cold weather. 

Depending on whether you love cold weather or not, a winter snood will be a fantastic gift for clients and customers alike.

A snood is a versatile accessory that can be used as a face covering, beanie, hand-warmer, and neck gaiter. 

It’s ideal for those customers of yours who enjoy going skiing and jogging on chilly days. 

Last but not least, a snood like this one shown above is wind-resistant and water-repellent to make sure your neck and head stay warm and dry no matter the weather conditions. 

Idea #24: WiFi Smart Plug

Client gift idea number 24 we’ve got for you is a WiFi smart plug

A plug like this one is just great and super practical. 

Why do we call it ‘smart’?

Because it is!

The plug allows you to control all the devices and chargers connected to it no matter where you are. 

For example, if you forgot to turn off your hair straightener, no problem! You can turn on and off your devices using the plug’s app. 

Plus, this little device is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. 

Do I need to say anything else?

Idea #25: 16-in-1 Multi-Tool

A 16-in-1 multi-tool might not be as smart as the smart plug we’ve just discussed, but it sure is a practical item that can be branded with your company name or logo. 

This brilliant multi-tool includes a bottle opener, knife, flat-head screwdriver, flashlight, laser pointer, and so on and so forth.

Idea #26: 3-Piece Shaker Set

Another item that’s versatile and features different functions is this three-piece shaker set

If you decide to customize one of these and share it with your clients and customers as a gift, then you should know that they’ll probably find it very handy. 

The set includes a salad container together with a dressing container and a reusable fork. 

This little gift is also microwave and dishwasher safe and can be used multiple times, thus helping reduce plastic waste and enjoy more fresh, homemade salads at work. 

Idea #27: Tablet Case

If you ever used a tablet or iPad, then you know how necessary a sturdy tablet case can be. 

This durable tablet sleeve keeps your tablet devices protected from scratches so you don’t have to freak out if you happen to drop your tablet – it happens to all of us!

Author’s Note: This Christmas take your branded swag to the next level with creative client gift ideas, like the Santa tablet sleeve, that are not just another holiday note card.

Idea #28: Messenger Bag

A custom messenger bag is a great custom gift for clients and customers who live demanding everyday lives. 

It’s lightweight, convenient, and easy to carry around while it includes separate compartments, ideal to carry your laptop or other devices. 

Plus, it’s more stylish than many bags out there and can be worn in different ways. 

Idea #29: Texting Gloves

Trying to text while wearing gloves… we’ve all been there and it’s not great! 

On cold winter days when your fingers are freezing, taking off your gloves to send an important text might be a challenging task. 

However, a pair of texting gloves could solve this problem!

They’re super warm and cozy and 100% touchscreen-friendly, which means that you can keep them on and use your phone at all times. 

Idea #30: Massage Rollerball

Why not give your clients and customers a few moments of relaxation with a handheld massager. 

This massage rollerball is the best client gift to help someone recover from a long day at work or a tough workout. 

It fits in the palm of your hand and it’s super easy to use; all you need to do is to roll it over the sore muscle and get relief in no time. 

Let’s get to the last item we want to share with you.

Idea #31: Food and Snacks

The last client gift idea we’re closing our list with is a client gift box with foods and snacks

Custom snack gift baskets are delicious, fun, and thoughtful. 

The reason why we love gift baskets so much is that they can be filled with any kind of edible promotional product and spread joy. 

Everyone loves treats and snacks so a custom gift box with food and snacks is probably going to be a huge success.
