Corporate Gift Ideas
The sun is still shining like summertime over the Argaux headquarters in Costa Mesa, California. But the recent passing of the equinox has us already thinking about the cooler months ahead, and the myriad celebrations they bring with them.
For professionals, it’s never too early to start thinking about how you’re going to help teams, employees, colleagues and clients feel seen and special this holiday season. If gift giving is a part of your organization’s winter tradition (or any tradition!) check out this article for some modern present ideas the people you work with are sure to love.
Corporate Christmas and Holiday Gift Ideas
However your people celebrate over the winter months, these gifts will help them do it.
- A red wine for winter nights. – $45
The 2019 Domaine de la Bonne Tonne ‘Côte du Py’ Morgon Beaujolais is the perfect bottle of red with which to weather a wintry storm. Clients and colleagues alike won’t hesitate to cozy up with this delicious bottle.
- Warm blankets from an independent business. – $80
Keep your prospects warmed up with a luxurious alpaca blanket from this independent Peruvian creator.
- A delectable kosher wine for Hanukkah. – $50
For observant Jewish clients and colleagues, this completely Kosher red wine made in the Israeli Judean Hills provides a thoughtful and delicious beverage to help celebrate the ancient Festival of Lights.
- A holiday tea subscription. – $25 per month
If your gift recipient is more of a tea aficionado than a oenophile, this customizable loose-leaf tea subscription will keep their mug filled with deliciousness all year long.
- A versatile winter Hydro Flask. – $28
For lovers of cold and warm beverages alike, this temperature-regulating travel mug from Hydro Flask will keep cold wine chilled for 24 hours, and hot tea hot for up to 6.
Corporate Gifts for Employees
Here are a few sweet ways to say “thank you” to your workforce – whatever the occasion.
- A ZZ plant. – $11
Many corporate gift idea listicles advocate for plants as an employee gift idea. But not everyone in your workforce is going to want to care for a finicky philodendron or an onerous orchid. We recommend the Zamioculcas Zamiifolia as an easy alternative – this plant thrives on neglect, so there’s no pressure when it’s given.
- A portable battery. – $50
You don’t know you want one until you need one. And with how dependent we all are on our devices, you can rest assured your employees will never leave the house without their battery pack once it’s been given to them.
- A food and wine tasting kit. – $99
For your food-oriented workforce, this fun and educational kit comes with two bottles of hand-selected wines from the Argaux cellars, a copy of Vanessa Price’s Big Macs and Burgundy: Wine Pairings for the Real World book, and a compact wine and food pairing guide from the somms at Argaux.
- Access to a masterclass of their choice. – Variable
Help your employees expand beyond their horizons and strike a better work/life balance by covering a Masterclass course that lets them learn their passions from a pro.
- A puzzle subscription. – $168 – 192 per year
For employees who like to unwind with a little jigsaw, this is a lovely gift that gives them access to as many puzzles as they can complete in a 12-month span. (Ask them if they like to drink wine while they puzzle, too, hm?)
Luxury Corporate Gifts
For top clients you want to nurture or colleagues continuing to go above and beyond, these gift ideas and a little something extra to the gift basket.
- Upscale extra-virgin olive oil. – $38
Chances are even your home-chef gift recipients aren’t buying themselves 40-dollar olive oil in an average grocery shop. Give them a taste of something really delectable with this EVOO from French master chef Nicolas Vahe.
- A selection of luxury chocolates. – $25
Reach out to the concierge at Vosges and have them help you pick the perfect pack of speciality chocolate bars to give the gift of something especially sweet.
- Crystal wine goblets. – $145
Give the gift of “no no, I said get the good wine glasses” with these incredible, luxurious, stemless Folia crystal tumblers from Saks.

The 2015 Vilmart & Cie Champagne 1er Cru ‘Coeur de Cuvee’ Brut is complex, refined, and utterly lent to aging – so your special client or colleague can open it now, or in years time when they’re toasting the success of your past partnership.
- World-class coffee. – Variable
From Onyx Coffee labs, another luxurious beverage subscription that helps clients and colleagues perk up in the morning with thoughtfully-roasted fair-trade coffee.
