It’s time to gift your special clients and colleagues top-of-the-line branded promotional products. Whether it's an end-of-the-year celebration, team building, holiday party, or any other special occasion we have highlighted some quality corporate swag that’s on trend for this festive season.

Our Brand Stylists have been on point tracking trendy, new products to curate the most exceptional client gifts throughout the year. We recently launched our Winter/Holiday 2022 Trends Lookbook with many leading vendors, premium and boutique retail brands, and brand-new swag styles that stand out for the holiday season. Get inspired by our top gift picks for each of the four swag style trends.

1. Corporate Gifting with Celestial

If you’re looking for a sleek and timeless look for your corporate gifts this season, here are some chic items to add to your list. For those who like to be cozy, we’re fans of the MiiR® 16 Oz Climate+ Tumbler which is double-walled and 100% recyclable and paired with a Kanata Blankets Highland Knit Throw which is great for battling the winter chills! With holidays come travel itineraries! Gift your frequent flyer an escape into luxurious cotton with a Fluffco® Plush Hotel Robe along with Fuzzy Slippers that are fully customizable. Get the year started right with practical items for remote and office working like the Moleskine® Hard Cover 2023 Planner, Port Authority® Men’s ½ Zip Sweater, and a Corkcicle® Commuter 9 Oz Cup.

2. Corporate Gifting with Flirtatious

The bold and bright statements featured in this trend make holiday gifts pop! If you’re thinking of going with a premium quality holiday gift, we suggest the Ohom Leiph Tea Kettle which has self-heating technology that allows beverages to maintain perfect drinking temperatures. It’s a beautiful ceramic teapot paired with two matching cups, creating a party for two. You could make it a set by pairing it with Maple Ridge Farms Trio of Treats which are high-quality snacks that include savory and sweet options. Join us in supporting minority-owned businesses with this Brightland Honey Set. Packed with California and Kauai wildlife honey, this gift is extra sweet.

3. Corporate Gifting with Nostalgia

Hosting and entertaining ramp up during the winter months so help your recipients get prepared! Our stylists selected this Glass Top Cutting Board With Knife that can present tasty gourmet treats while being completely functional. If you want to add a more intimate host gift, our stylists also suggest the Wine Appetizer Plate Set. A simple gesture that goes a long way is a useful item for day-to-day use. We picked the Elemental® Iconic Bottle Gift Set with a 20 oz vacuum-insulated and durable tumbler that your recipients can take anywhere!

It’s always fun to think outside the box with more creative gifting! We have the ultimate urban set which includes a completely customizable Hexa Apparel Puffy Jacket and American Trench Monot Stripe Socks that can mix with any sneaker or sandals to ensure style and warmth this holiday season. Products like the Kinto 12 Oz Travel Tumbler, XD Design Bobby Backpack, Moment Fanny Sling, and Rains® Bucket Hat are all popular items to group together or gift individually for clients or employees.

Your Holiday Swag Checklist

  1. Make your gift list: Separate your list by audience type (e.g., employees, clients) if you plan to get different items for each.
  2. Set your budget and timeline: Define a unit price range or a total spend amount. Consider whether shipping is or isn’t included and when you want the gifts to be delivered.
  3. Contact your Brand Stylist:Reach out to your CreativeMC rep for product ideas and timeline guidance.
  4. Select and approve items: Make your product picks, review decoration options, and lock in your order by approving a PO.
  5. Finalize a distribution plan: Our team can handle the fulfillment from A to Z, including gorgeous packing, gift cards, and shipping. Ask about our e-store options to avoid the hassle of collecting shipping information or apparel sizes!
