Corporate Gift Ideas for the Holidays

If you're trying to determine whether you should give gifts to your employees or clients this holiday season, you’re not alone. With the holidays approaching, many business owners are looking for corporate gift ideas that are both cost effective and beneficial to their business. Corporate holiday gift ideas are a dime a dozen, so it's important to choose items that recipients will enjoy and remember.

Many small business owners are concerned about the cost of giving corporate gifts, but it is important to remember that these gifts are an investment in your company. When you give a holiday gift to your clients, it strengthens your relationships with them. When you give holiday gifts to your employees, it shows how much you appreciate their hard work. Even if you're the type of boss who’s known for thanking employees for a job well done, a gift is a token of your appreciation. You don't need a vast holiday budget either — even small gifts show your employees that you care, and that will motivate them to work harder.

Before You Give a Gift

Before you choose what kind of gift you'd like to give, determine your budget and verify the IRS regulations for gift giving. This way, you stay within the IRS spending limits, and you can write off the cost of the gifts on your taxes.

When considering corporate gift ideas, think about the gift recipients. The last thing you want to do is offend someone by giving a present that isn't culturally correct, so choose generic gifts and sentiments that cover all holidays.

The best corporate gifts are thoughtful and build a stronger relationship with your employees and clients. Opt for professional gifts with a personal touch. If you don't have a huge budget, you can plan a holiday luncheon for your employees and simply send corporate holiday cards to your clients. If you have more money to spend, you can choose unique corporate gifts geared toward each individual client and give your employees bonuses or gift cards with their paychecks.

Whether you own a large or small company, giving holiday gifts can benefit your business. There are many corporate gift ideas to choose from. As long as you choose thoughtful, professional gifts, the gesture will warm the hearts of your clients and employees.
