Corporate Christmas Gift Boxes


Following months of sourcing and planning we are thrilled to be launching our Box of Hugs Autumn/ Winter gift range for 2022. We are really proud of our new collection, which we have themed around comfort and warmth. Here at Box of Hugs, we are all big fans of Autumn and cosy nights in; so it’s been a joy to be testing so many lovely products. We hope you love them as much as we do.  

We appreciate that this Autumn/ Winter may be a difficult one for many individuals and families given the increases in the cost of living and energy prices, but we think that this means that your employees, clients and suppliers may appreciate a lovely and thoughtful seasonal or festive Box of Hugs gift from you even more.

If you are the one who’s responsible for choosing the gifts for your suppliers, clients or employees this Christmas (or you have been kindly nominated to choose!), you may already be feeling slightly daunted at the prospect of finding the time to look for, or to come up with gift ideas. Fear not as we are here for you, and we can help you take this task off your ‘to do’ list. 

Last year we helped several of our customers, just like you, put together lovely corporate festive gift boxes for their staff, clients or suppliers to say Thank You for their hard work throughout the year or to say Happy Christmas/Holiday Season. We're here to help you find just the right gifts for your Organisation - gifts your recipients will appreciate, are within your budget, and that you can feel proud of sending.

    Corporate and Business Christmas and Festive Gift Buying Guide

    Not sure what you want? Here are some things you may want to consider:

    1. What is your budget per head: remember to include packing and postage, and gift tax if relevant. This will give you a starting point. 
    2. Do you want to link your gifts to your company's values or a business focus? If so, what are your company values or what have you - as an Organisation - been focussing on this year and what kinds of gifts might tie in with those? e.g. 
    • promoting sustainability - many of our suppliers promote sustainability through their packaging choices, ingredient choices or the causes they support and promote
    • fun - games, jigsaws, creative projects, baking gifts?
    • health and wellbeing - facials, feet or hand treats, products to promote sleep or relaxation, mindfulness or inspiration
    • family - games, edible treats  
    • communication - writing pads, pencils or pens, branded gifts?
    1. What do you think your employees, suppliers or customers would value most in a gift? e.g.
    • gifts tailored to them, or for the whole family?
    • edible treats or useful gifts?
    • vouchers so they can choose their own gifts?
    • sustainable gifts?
    • that a charitable donation is included, therefore giving something back. We are proud supporters of the Brain Tumour Charity but we can discuss other options with you. 
    Thinking about these things is often a good place to start - as you will know your employees, customers or suppliers better than we do. 

    1. What would you like to, or not like to receive as a gift? What have you received from organisations you have worked for in the past? What did you value (or not) about these? 
    2. Do you want to include: a bonus, voucher or tickets in the box as an extra surprise?
    3. Do you want to include bespoke and/or branded gift/s? For previous corporate Christmas gift boxes we have sourced family-sized jigsaw puzzles and Christmas Themed Gingerbread Biscuits (including gluten free ones) with icing pens and decorations. Let us know what you are looking for and we will do our best to source it for you (Minimum order: 30 gift boxes)
    4. How will the gift boxes be given out? Do you want the gifts sent directly to recipients homes or business addresses, or delivered to your own office/s to be placed on desks or handed out personally? This might have implications for the size or weight of gifts you want to include.

    If you haven't bought corporate gifts before, some other things you may want to consider include:

    1. The sign-off process: the sign-off process for the gifts, boxes and cards/messages may include your Procurement or Finance Team, CEO, Senior Managers and/ or anyone else who has the authority to sign the gifting budget and gifts off. Finding out when they are they available, what information they want/need to see and how long the process might take within your organisation can be useful to know upfront. From our experience, there can sometimes be multiple levels of sign-off and it can take weeks or months to get final sign-off.
    2. Delivery: How, when and where you want the gift boxes delivered. Do you want the gift boxes delivered to your office/several offices within the UK, to home addresses (UK only), work addresses or a combination?  (Unfortunately we are currently unable to send gift boxes overseas due to the exporting rules and regulations involved. However, we can get them delivered to your UK office address for you to post on - in line with rules and regulations).
    3. Home addresses and GDPR: If your preference is for gift boxes to be delivered to employee home addresses, we will need your full list of names and addresses at least two weeks before your preferred date for delivery. For GDPR purposes we will assume that you have followed your organisations guidelines with regards to relevant permissions, and we will delete all electronic and hard copies of employee addresses one month after the gift boxes have been sent to the recipients
    4. Lead time for orders. We would ask for:
    • 2-4 weeks notice for orders of 30 boxes or more if you are using our Box of Hugs branded gift boxes and we have the gifts you want in stock
    • 4-6 weeks notice for orders over 30 boxes if you would like us to get branded or personalised boxes, sleeves or cards printed
    1. Payment: You will be invoiced on receipt of your written confirmation for your order. We ask that full payment is received prior to your gifts being sent out.
    1. Cancellations: Once you have confirmed your order in writing, we will reserve/ purchase stock for you and book you into our packing schedule. In the unlikely event you need to cancel, the following charges will apply:
    • Change of date (assuming all stock can still be used): no charge
    • Cancellation notice of more than 2 weeks prior to the delivery date: 50% of the total invoice will be due to cover stock.
    • Cancellation notice of less than 2 weeks prior to the delivery date: 100% of the total invoice will be due.
    1. Gift Tax: it is worth checking the tax rules on gifts for employees with your finance team, particularly if you are looking to spend over £50 per head. 

    We hope that this overview is useful and answers some of your initial questions.

    If you have further questions or would like to discuss your options and how we can help, please contact us.

    We look forward to helping you put together some lovely, thoughtful Festive or Christmas gift boxes that you, your employees, suppliers or customers will love. 

    Love and hugs
