Five corporate gift trends

What a year its been and we are far from over the hump!

I often have lengthy discussions with my corporate clients regarding their brands and what gifting would suit their unique brands while taking budget constraints into consideration. 

And the truth is all companies have their own needs and will definitely need a different approach when looking at getting their gifting needs fulfilled. 

Bu with that said there are some trends that have emerged that would suit most brands and service their unique needs. 

Below are my top 5:

1. Personalized Leather Products

Leather has that classical feel to it, it is also known for maintaining its pristine appearance even as it ages. Personalized leather products are suitable for all genders and generations in the corporate space. Young and old are appreciative of personalized leather gifts. We have a amazing selection of handmade South African leather products in our line that makes a bold statement and the quality is next to none. 

2. Luxury Handmade Edibles & Confectionery

For those with a penchant for sweeter things, local chocolatiers have mastered the art of milk and cocoa. Local chocolatiers have delectable innovative flavors that can give even the Swiss and education on the complexities of good chocolate. We work closely with some of the best local chocolatiers and find that these unique bespoke boxes of heaven are always a crowd favorite. 

3. Local Gin & Craft Syrups as well as Gin Botanicals

The end of the year is a time to be among friends and family, celebrating each other’s achievements. Nothing brings a group of people together like a tasty alcoholic beverage, especially one that is as dynamic and flavorsome as craft gin. Who knows, your gift may even inspire the recipient to take up mixology- talk about a gift that keeps on giving. Our DIY G&T kits and just add in Gin bottles have created more smiles than we can count and will always be a sure win. 

4. Local Organic Skincare

The hustle and bustle of the year can take its toll on us, often the first signs of prolonged stress are felt by our skins. This can lead to breakouts or the break-down of collagen, resulting in dry wrinkled skin. Local organic skincare revitalizes the cellular tissue, cleansing the pores whilst nourishing the skin and restoring it to its pristine plump form. Treat your clients, staff or yourself with organic skincare. Start the New Year with a noticeable glow. We have had huge success with our all natural bath bombs. This unique gift can be personalized and is great for both men and woman. We have also in the past done these paired with a mobile spa company or arranged with a wellness day or corporate breakaway. 

5. Personalized Stationery

The idea of stationery as a gift may sound mundane, but personalized stationery is more than pens and notepads. It might be the oldest gift in corporate South Africa but it is still widely appreciated. 


There you have it, this list was compiled by looking at trends for 2019/2020 and by looking into our own customers behaviors.
