The 2022 Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: For Employees & Clients

Employee Art

Show off your company’s creativity by asking a budding artist on your team for original art or photography (you could always offer a gift card to sweeten the deal)! After you make copies of the art, be sure to add a frame and matboard for the perfect holiday present. Not only is this unique, but it’s a cost-effective gift solution that clients and employees will love!

Group Photo

A framed group photo of the team is a really meaningful way to show holiday cheer, and your employees and clients will appreciate the sincere thought behind the gift! If you don’t have a current team photo, it’s never too late to get one. Even better, have everyone dress up for the photo – ugly Christmas sweaters are especially popular right now for really memorable pictures!

Holiday Quote & Poems

Framed inspirational poems and quotes with a joyful seasonal message are the perfect way to spread holiday cheer to employees and clients! Try creating a custom holiday quote or poem using a design site like Canva. It’s a relatively easy way to personalize your messaging and make it that much more meaningful for your recipients.

Holiday Card

You can find holiday cards pretty much anywhere, but did you know they look great framed? Find a card or series of cards you like and frame them up for an easy and budget-friendly holiday gift. For a custom designer look, we recommend a matboard in a complementary color. Clients and employees will love the seasonal decor to dress up their offices or homes!
