Gift Guide Rescue! #1: Corporate


The stress over client gift giving during the holidays can be overwhelming, but it is the perfect way to thank your them for a great year. Everyone loves to receive a little something during the holiday season, so here are a few gift ideas to give your corporate clients.  


Murietta’s Well ‘The Whip’  

The Whip comes from Murietta’s Well, a beautiful winery that is nestled in the Livermore Valley of Northern California. It’s a white wine crowd pleaser that has a crisp finish, making it perfect for food pairings 


Make no mistake- this is not your average mug. With its leak-proof and collapsible design, the Stojo Cup is easy to store and perfect for all your on-the-go coffee and tea loving clients. It was created to be a convenient alternative to a bulky travel mug and it is more environmentally friendly than disposable cups. They are available in six colors: orange, blue, pink, red and black. You can even place larger orders and add your logo! 


Give the gift of something sweet with these Wondermade Gourmet Marshmallows. They are made of all-natural ingredients and come in cute box packaging with sixteen marshmallows inside. Although they are located in Sanford, Florida you can purchase them online and get them sent across the country.  Flavors include Gold Champagne, Birthday Cake, Cookies and Cream and even boozy favorites. They also offer gift sets with hot coco and marshmallow pairings.   


This hardbound, cloth notebook is the perfect way to jot down ideas. It is organized into three sections: conceive, incubate, and hatch. Those sections will help to breakdown grand ideas into small actionable items.  


These all-natural soaps are lightly fragranced and come in a variety of scents. Crafted with organic shea and coco butters, they will leave your skin soft, nourished and refreshed. The best part? When you purchase one of these soaps, the Hand in Hand company donates one bar of soap and one month of clean water to children in need. It’s like giving two gifts for one!  


Take a page out of Rifle Paper’s book and give a gift that will inspire with one of their beautifully designed desk calendars. With three designs to choose from, you can easily find one that will fit everyone on your list. Each month has an original illustration that fits the theme of the calendar; choose from Herb Garden, Bon Voyage and Constellations.   

With these ideas, you’re sure to spread some holiday cheer. And hey! Maybe you can grab one or two for yourself too- you deserve it.
