“What a unique gift!” It’s a sentiment we hear a lot at Spoonful of Comfort, and we love it. After all, soup doesn’t come in the mail every day! You’ve probably received a lot of gifts over the years—and we bet the ones that stand out were the gifts that were extra thoughtful, delightfully surprising, and maybe unlike anything else.
Sending a memorable gift is especially important in the corporate world. You want your recipient to associate the gift and its positive vibes with you. And you want your gift to stick in someone’s mind, not get stuck in a junk drawer or (we’ll say it) regifted. So to really strengthen a business relationship, find a gift with a little oomph. A unique corporate gift doesn’t have to be expensive or off the wall. But it should be part of your effort to make your gift-giving moment both meaningful and memorable.
We’ve curated a list of 29 unique corporate gift ideas. Some are right for any business relationship, others might speak to the unique personality of a client, customer, employee, or executive. But you can use a unique corporate gift idea to nourish your business.
