Some come from our favorite startups, while others are just a click away on Amazon. Go the extra mile by customizing them with company colors, a logo, or a personal touch that truly shows your appreciation.
Whether or not your company is working from home, it’s our hope that these gifts will allow you to stay connected to both your business – and each other.
Here are 36 corporate gifts to thank your employees:
Consider a bottle of their favorite spirit from ReserveBar’s corporate gifting guide. Choose from a wide variety of champagnes, tequilas, and cocktail gift sets based on your employee’s preferences.
If you’re looking to make this gift even more special, you can opt for a custom bottle engraving.

Famously delicious sweets from Milk Bar
Milk Bar, the cult-favorite bakery based in New York, delivers its decadent cakes, cookies, and truffles to gift recipients’ doorsteps.
Olive oil they’ve been meaning to try from Brightland
California brand Brightland makes extra virgin olive oil and vinegar that we’ve found to be full-bodied and sharp. Its recognizable white bottles protect the EVOO from light damage — and also look really nice displayed on a countertop. Find a full review here.
A Hydro Flask mug that regulates their drink’s temperature
This mug is a common desk companion for the Insider Reviews team. The 12-ounce coffee mug has the company’s proprietary TempShield insulation that made its water bottles famous.
This mug will keep hot drinks hot for up to six hours, and cold drinks cold for up to 24. Read our full review of it here.
An Atlas Tea Club subscription to some of the world’s best teas and coffees
This subscription sends your giftee single-origin teas from the best tea-growing regions in the world for six months. You can also opt for coffee.
A small Tile Pro that helps them find misplaced items
The Tile Pro button helps you find misplaced items like keys and phones. You attach one to an item, that if lost, can be tracked through a free app or by pushing a button to create noise. We’ve found them especially useful lately!
Starbucks gift cards
Since there are Starbucks all over the country, its gift cards are great if you have employees spread across many locations. Starbucks’ corporate sales program also has options that range from physical gift cards, branded gift cards, or digital gift cards delivered directly to your recipient’s email.
You can set the value of the gift cards to anywhere between $5 to $500. Learn more about Starbucks’ corporate sales program here.
Plants and flowers from BloomsyBox
Bring some life into your employee’s home office setup by gifting them a beautiful flower arrangement or plant from BloomsyBox. The retailer offers a wide variety of floral arrangements and plants and even offers subscriptions so that you can send your employees flowers on a consistent basis.
Customized snack boxes from NatureBox
Many folks are missing the company snack bar now that lots of offices are closed, and nothing says “I appreciate you” quite like a box filled with delicious treats.
NatureBox’s SnackPass box allows employees to choose their preferred snacks and get them sent directly to their houses. It also offers a wide selection and its corporate gifting program allows you to send a customized snack box after simply providing some basic information.
Mashable magnet toys from Speks
We loved these tiny magnet toys a lot more than we expected to. Less obnoxious than fidget spinners, they’re immensely satisfying to play with and build with as you work through a problem or concentrate on a task. The set includes 512 rare earth magnetic balls, a metal building base, a plastic splitter card, a 16-page starter guide, and a carrying case.
A box of customer favorite coffee blends from La Colombe
If they don’t live near one of La Colombe’s 30 locations, send them a gift set filled with the brand’s fan-favorite blends instead.

Decadent chocolates from Vosges
Our pick for the best chocolates you can gift, Vosges offers gift sets that are sure to impress your employees with both the high-quality chocolate and the beautiful packaging.
The Chocolate Bar Library is a great gifting option as it includes nine unique chocolate flavors — including banana coconut, matcha, and raw honey — in a keepsake box. Aside from this very giftable set, the Hazelnut Praline Bonbons set is a great gifting option, too.
Vosges also offers a corporate concierge which can help guide you through personalizing your chocolate selection with your company’s branding and help coordinate shipping to multiple addresses.
Bath & Body Works gift sets
With all of the handwashing and sanitizing we’re all doing due to the pandemic, there’s no better gift than this set from Bath & Body Works, which includes a hand sanitizer, hand lotion, and hand soap.

Use this contact form to get more information about Bath & Body Works’ corporate gifting program or to make large gift orders.
Part of Bombas’ appeal, other than the obvious differences in fit and feel, is that it donates a pair of socks to a homeless shelter every time someone buys a pair, which also applies to its corporate gifting program. It can work with your company’s current charity partner, or help you find the perfect donation recipient. You can fill out a corporate gifting form at Bombas here.
