The Best Holiday Corporate Gifting Ideas for 2020

The holiday season approaches! That means it’s corporate gifting time. Take this opportunity to show your clients, coworkers, employees, and boss how much you appreciate them for all they do with a sustainable gift they’ll love. 

Corporate gifts can be tricky. You don’t want to keep it so generic that it’s forgettable, but you also don’t want to cross the line into territory that’s too personal. The perfect gift reflects the relationship you have, strengthens that relationship, and is memorable enough that they may even bring it up to you later on in the year. 

Stay away from impersonal gift cards or plastic-riddled throw-away gadgets and do something a little more special for the important business relationships in your life. This corporate holiday gift guide for 2020 breaks down the best sustainable gift ideas for any member of your team or client roster. Best part? Most of them come wrapped in a reusable gift bag that includes a gift message. It is the gift + gift wrap + card + shipping all-in-one.

Tokki was NOT paid by anyone for these opinions (even by ourselves as it turns out). Each product has our "Tokki Tested" stamp of approval. Check out what that means.
