The most wonderful time of the year is approaching, which means, aside from cosying up by the fire and watching our favourite festive movies, it’s time to start thinking about those all-important Christmas gifts.
While friends and family may be your priority, it’s important to not forget about your coworkers and employees. Whether you manage a team of 10 or 100, it’s important to show just how much their hard work over the year has meant to you.
If you’re struggling to think of the perfect gift for your employees that won’t end up being re-gifted, we’ve curated a list of 14 fabulous corporate gifts that are sure to be loved.
1. The NIO Experience Box
For the cocktail enthusiasts, our exclusive NIO Experience Box includes everything needed to enjoy bar-quality cocktails outside of a bar. Featuring your selection of 5 cocktails from our impressive menu, 2 custom-designed NIO tumblers, made in Italy and 1 ice cube mould, designed to create 4XL ice cubes, employees will easily be able to enjoy a premium cocktail from the comfort of their own home over the holidays, or even at the office Christmas party.
2. Gift Cards
While it may seem like a simple gift, a gift card will never go to waste. If several of your employees have an obsession with coffee, then a gift card to their most frequented coffee shop will go down a treat. Or, if you have any gamers, fashionistas, or foodies in the team, get them a gift card to spend at their favourite store. We also have a digital NIO Cocktails gift card available so your employees can treat themselves to a selection box of delicious cocktails.
3. Christmas Cocktail Box
‘Tis the season to be merry and our new Christmas Collection Box includes 6 unique cocktails which introduce festive flavours such as cinnamon or ginger, to classic drinks to bring the cocktail and the holiday season to life. From a Snowy Daiquiri to a Spiced Negroni, this box offers a range of drinks to suit everyone’s taste. Plus, the fun, holographic packaging will bring further surprise and delight to your employees.
4. Food Hamper
Food hampers make a great Christmas gift for employees as it’ll always be appreciated and can be taken home to share with the family too. Include some of their favourite treats, whether that’s a specific type of chocolate, some cannoli or tortilla chips along with some classic festive snacks too such as Panettone and a bottle of vino.
5. 1832 Majani Cocktail & Chocolate Box
Give your employees a gift of luxury with our 1832 Majani Cocktail & Chocolate Box. Pairing rich Italian dark chocolate that’s intense and persistent on the palate, with a unique yet delicious rum-based cocktail created by our master mixologist Patrick Pistolesi, this box is the perfect indulgent treat.
6. Personalised Notebook
Notebooks are an essential office supply, even if your company is mostly digital, notebooks are still a hand thing to keep around. And, by personalising the notebook with their names, alongside the company logo or name, it becomes an extra special gift. A personalised work notebook will show your employees that you value them and give them a sense of belonging.
7. Gin Lover Cocktails
If you’re looking for a gift for a gin lover, our curated gin-based cocktail boxes are the answer! Partnering with award-winning gin brands, we created a selection of pre-made cocktail gift sets that feature unique, themed cocktails to immerse in. You can also add a gift note to let your employees know just how much you appreciate them.
8. Personalised Travel Mug
Sustainable and long-lasting, a tumbler that can hold both hot and cold drinks will be a highly useful gift that your employees will use again and again. Getting it personalised either in their favourite colours, with some decals of their favourite fictional character or with their name will also make it unique to them and a much more thoughtful gift.
9. Office Drinks Trolley
A good Christmas gift can also include something for the office that everyone would benefit from such as an office drinks trolley. If you have a very sociable team, an office drinks trolley is an ideal party butler and will keep your drinks organised and ready for whenever your team needs, while still being very stylish and aesthetically pleasing.
10. Whiskey Lover Cocktails
If you know a whiskey lover in the office, what better way to deliver something they’ll savour than with some delicious premixed whiskey-based cocktails? Our boxes feature cocktails made with award-winning whiskey that’s perfect to enjoy during the colder months. You can also build your own box of 3,6 or 9 whiskey cocktails that you know your employee loves.
11. Self-Care Package
Everyone deserves a break and to take some much-needed time for themselves. And there’s no better time for self-care than the festive holidays. Creating a self-care package for everyone on your team will show them that you care about their mental and physical well-being. Include items such as bath products, fluffy socks, nibbles, hot tea or drink mixes, skincare, a book or DVD and other things that will help them to relax and feel good.
12. Rum Lover Cocktails
Nothing beats a refreshing rum-based cocktail, whether it’s spiced rum, white rum, dark rum and everything else in between, any rum-lover will be ecstatic to receive a box full of their favourite tipples. As one of the most popular spirits around, we’re willing to bet you’ll have a few rum-enthusiasts within your team. So, build them a box of 3, 6 or 9 pre-made rum cocktails to surprise them with this Christmas.
13. Experience Days
For the employee who seemingly has everything, give them a gift they’ll never forget with an experience day. You could choose to gift individual experience days or, treat the entire team to something adventurous. From go-karting and rock-climbing to spa days and animal experiences, the opportunities are endless and your team will have a great time bonding and making memories together.
14. Extra Holiday Days
We know your employees work hard to ensure your company remains a success all year long, but it's important to recognise their life outside of work too. Everyone values their time and wants to create a healthy work-life balance to spend time with their friends, family and to do the things that they love. Giving them the gift of extra holiday days to use throughout the year will not only make your tea extremely happy but will project you as a caring boss.
