1. Bluetooth Gadgets
The holiday season is a great time to show your employees how much you appreciate their hard work throughout the year. If you're looking for a gift that will really make an impression, consider giving them a Bluetooth gadget.
Bluetooth technology has come a long way in recent years, and there are now many cool devices that use it to stay connected. A Bluetooth speaker would be a great gift for anyone who loves music, and a wireless mouse or keyboard would be perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time working on their computer.

One of the most affordable wireless earbuds you can find on the market. Battery life is up to 8 and 48 hours with a charging case. Bluetooth range is 49 feet or about 15 meters. These earbuds are also waterproof and have wireless charging features, which is not bad for a travel companion.
For tech lovers who mostly use PC at home, they might need touchpad for better precision and navigation. This could be one of the best option since the touch area is quite wide and equipped with multi-touch feature.
2. Comfortable Cushions
Other corporate gifts for employees who love technology are cushions! Believe it or not, it’s one of the must-have items for many people. Most of them sit in front of their devices for 8 to 12 hours (maybe more) a day, so they need a comfortable seat.
There are several options for seat cushions or chair pads. You can also find specific cushions to help position properly and improve posture. These kinds of corporate gifts can boost employees' productivity and health. Kill two birds with one stone (just an expression, we love birds! Right, Parrot the Carrot?).

Another useful tool for tech lovers is a desk vacuum! A mini, handy, wireless vacuum can clean out narrow tiny spots, including keyboards. As we know, dust is no friend for keyboards and many other devices.
4. Personal Fitness Equipment
Some employees pay more attention to a healthy lifestyle. They enjoy exercising regularly as well as eating clean and healthy food. For these employees, the best corporate gifts for Christmas are personal fitness equipment!
But remember not to give them space-consuming gym equipment like treadmills or rowers. They might not have the space at home.
Portable sports accessories they can carry on everywhere (including the office) will be great ideas for corporate gifts. For instance, a set of resistance bands or stretching straps, a high-quality jump rope or yoga mat, or stylish new gym outfits!
Unlike conventional resistance bands, this kit allows you to customise your entire body workout more effectively. It's easy to use at home; anchor it to your door, and you're ready to burn those carbs!

So, you can consider giving them a health care kit that includes essential vitamins, personal travel-sized toiletries, a personal blender for their smoothies or protein shakes, and don't forget a water bottle. You can also have coupons for medical check-ups or a health app subscription.6. Spa Box

You can include eye and face masks, scented candles, relaxing bath products, body scrubs, and spa coupons! It works every time.7. Air Purifier & Essential Oil Diffuser Combo
For some people, home air purification doesn't sound exactly like one of "the most-wanted presents". But hear me out. For employees who are VERY concerned about health, an air purifier is a thoughtful gift.
Especially when you give them the one that also works as an essential oil diffuser, their eyes will light up like Christmas. It can keep the air fresh, clean, and soothing. Quite useful for corporate gift ideas for employees who are working in their rooms the whole day.8. Fitness Tracker
Technology can make our lives better and healthier! Ensure you get a compact water resistance fitness tracker so they can take it for a swim (or a bath). A fitness tracker will help them monitor their health and sports activities.
9. The Best Family Board Games
Christmas is the best time to spend some quality time with dear ones. So, you can make this moment even more joyful by giving them unique, fun, and challenging board games. And not just a board game, but a pirate game! (Remember how Pirates of the Caribbean hit the blockbuster? It will be fun to play pirate in the "real world"!)

10. Personalized Jigsaw Puzzle
Another corporate gifts ideas for gamers is a personalized jigsaw puzzle. You can customize a photo puzzle for each employee. It’s personal, memorable, and (quite) uniquely enjoyable!
And it also looks good as wall decoration (but for the avid gamer, we still think strategic board games or card games for families are the better way to go purely due to the replayability factor).11. Virtual Murder Mystery Games
First of all, it's nothing like the online game Among Us. In virtual murder mystery games, you will be the detective who tries to crack a murder case. Some of the games are based on actual circumstances!

There is a wide variety of Paint by Number kits with various themes, such as animals, landscapes, or spaces. You can also have custom ones created from a photo to make it more personal.13. Online Classes
Online classes can teach us almost everything, from watercolor painting, crafting, sculpting, and calligraphy classes to baking. You can give them a free coupon to join classes related to their hobbies or something new!14. DIY Candle Kit
Making scented candles can easily be done at home with the help of do-it-yourself candle kits. It can also be very thoughtful corporate gifts for employees and coworkers and will be an excellent therapeutic experience for them.
Who doesn't like a little aromatherapy? It is relaxing, and many studies have shown that it improves sleep quality.15. Mini Indoor Garden Kit

Subscription-based video demand is rising.
As for the movie maniac, a free subscription to over-the-top movies and series streaming platforms will put them on cloud nine! It's simple yet one of the most universally appreciated corporate gift ideas.18. Snack Package
Movies and snacks are a package deal. Without snacks, watching movies are like eating a cheeseburger without cheese (It's not the best comparison, I know, but hopefully you get what I mean).
If you give packs of snacks as corporate gifts for Christmas, don’t forget to choose an assortment of snacks to last the movie marathon.19. Personalized Coffee Mugs
Movie maniacs can spend hours (or days) non-stop watching series during the holiday season. A personalized coffee mug will keep them company when fighting the urge to sleep!
A more high-tech mug can automatically heat the coffee to keep it hot. More expensive ones may even let you set the temperature.
As long as the mug you choose shows your appreciation, any of them are sure to be crowd-pleasers.20. Smart Mood Lamp
We need a mood booster to have exceptional movie nighttime. A smart mood lamp is a great choice because you don't need to install dimmer switches at home. It automatically changes color to match the movie’s mood. And it also helps you get better sleep (after long hours of binge-watching shows!).
This is also a great corporate gifts ideas for the gamer type of employees. No matter what type of game they play, be it one of the best family board games that everyone loves or the intense single-player games to destress, the lamp can offer the perfect mood to pair it.
