Our top 5 last-minute corporate gifting ideas

A quick and easy guide to Christmas gifting.

Christmas is now just one month away and businesses are well and truly embracing the festive season.

If you’re feeling like it’s all just crept up a little too fast and are yet to organise corporate gifts, fear not – there’s still time.

Whether you’re still searching for client gifts, staff presents or perhaps something special for team members who can’t attend the work Christmas party, there are loads of options to help make corporate gifting a breeze.

Here are five of our top picks for corporate gifts with a personal touch:

1. Pamper your clients

It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think corporate gifts, but Australian cosmetic brand MECCA has a swag of easy gifting solutions that both women and men will love.

This Christmas, they’re stocking a range of corporate beauty and cosmetic gift sets that are the right level of thoughtful, yet not too personal.

Our fave is the Weekend Luxuries Set, with a candle, hand cream and room spray, while there’s also gift sets designed specifically for men, Sunday rituals and travel (one can dream).

You can check them out here.

2. Wine and cheese experiences

For the wine and cheese lovers among us, Australian winery Handpicked Wines has a bunch of corporate gift ideas perfect for last minute orders.

With a home base in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and an Urban Cellar Door in Chippendale, Sydney, Handpicked Wines is known for its “regionally expressive wines” and their expert cheese pairings.

For a simple corporate gifting solution, Handpicked Wines are serving up premium wine packs or a wine and cheese packs directly to clients’ doors across Sydney and Melbourne.

For something a little more elaborate, the winery offers sommelier-led wine tastings, both in the Urban Cellar Door or virtually. In the Premium Virtual Experience, participants will receive three wines and three matched cheeses and will be guided by winemaker Pete Dillion all within one hour.

3. Support rural communities

What started as an Instagram page in 2019 showcasing products to buy from rural communities facing drought, Buy From The Bush has now grown into a fully fledged online marketplace.

There’s a variety of products on offer from all over Australia, including art, gifts, homewares and fresh produce.

Some products are sourced and handmade in the bush, while others are sourced globally and sold in small rural boutiques.

4. Gift cards with meaning

While people often steer clear of gift cards in search of something more personal, this year there’s never been a better time to give the gift of going out.

Earlier this year, The Card Network, in partnership with The Restaurant and Catering Association, The Australian Hotels Association and Woolworths, launched a collection of gift cards that can be used at any restaurant, pub or bar across Australia that accepts EFTPOS.

With a goal to support the hospitality industry and make gifting more convenient, The Restaurant Gift Card and The Pub and Bar Gift Card are commission-free and are valid for three years.

“With no fee to the purchaser and no cost to our restaurant partners, these cards are an amazing new initiative – particularly when restaurant owners need all the support they can get right now,” said Restaurant & Catering CEO Wes Lambert.

5. Living gifts

The real MVP of 2020? Houseplants.

Our green ferny friends have kept us company during our work-from-home stints, so why not keep adding to the collection?

Sara’s Garden is a Sydney business specialising in eco-friendly gifts, including plants, herb garden kits and organic tea boxes.

The gifts can also be customised with company logos or messages and can be delivered to homes and offices all over Australia.
