Meaningful Corporate Gifts


Office gift-giving can be a challenge. You want to show your employees how much you appreciate them, but as is the case with many offices, you might not know too much about their personal taste and lives outside of work. This holiday season, take some time before the end of the year crunch to consider what your team would truly enjoy and give a gift that makes them feel like their hard work has been recognized. Try to steer clear of the traditional gift basket or bottle of wine to avoid gifting someone a cheese basket when they’re dairy-free, or champagne for your employee who has decided to cut back on drinking. Try some of these unique gifts to show how much you value your team!


A unique small clutch is a thoughtful corporate gift that can be used for much more than holding keys and makeup. Consider a fun print that suites the personalities of each of your employees so it feels personalized to them. A clutch or makeup bag can be repurposed to hold office supplies or business cards, making the mundane much more fun! These handmade clutches and makeup bags from Africa are sure to please, and buying from independent designers ensures your employees won’t see anyone else with the same one!


If you’re looking for a special gift set, stay clear from those heavily-scented mall stores and gift your employees with this set of shea butter products. Handmade by a mother-daughter duo in Ghana, this shea butter comes from sustainably-paid farmers, ensuring that this gift does good while providing high-quality skincare products. When it’s all used up, the stylish tins can then be repurposed as small storage containers. Send the message that your team deserves some pampering this holiday season!


You may have heard of the sad desk lunch, but you can make sure your employees still enjoy a nice lunch break with these lovely handmade bowls from Zimbabwe. Encourage office sustainability with reusable dishes that they will love. Each a unique and different design than the other!
