Wondering which gifts made the nice list this year? We’ve been keeping our eyes on the trends (and checking them twice) so you can spread the most cheer with your holiday gifts. We know that businesses need to keep two gift lists: one for their clientele and one for their staff. That’s why we’ve collected the best client holiday gift ideas right along with our favorite holiday and Christmas gift ideas for staff. Put your branding on gifts that show everyone good things really do come in small packages.

For a gift that wraps itself, choose design wrap pens. Select from over 99 free art templates, including fun holiday designs. The art wraps around the barrel for 360° views. Your message of thanks is the perfect final touch.
