These useful Christmas gift ideas are a great way to delight - and help lighten the load this festive season

Most companies will be tightening their belts at what’s usually a fun, festive and indulgent time of year, but if you are planning to gift teams this Christmas, practical gifts are a great way to both delight and have a positive impact on your people this festive season.

Here are some thought starters for more practical Christmas gifts. 


Gifts to eat and drink

One of the first things we tend to limit when we’re watching our budgets is dining out, and our much-loved takeaways. Tasty treats like cook-at-home meal kits are a great way to bring a little warmth and flavour to these colder nights – not to mention they’re fun to prepare with friends and family. Why not heat things up with our delicious Holy Cow! daal kits, or indulge your people with perfect pasta kits from Pasta Evangelists. 

Our fruit and veg boxes from Pikt will make sure your teams get their five a day. Or if you think they’d really benefit from a night off the washing up, our PizzaExpress gifts are a great way to get them out of the house, and stuck into a mouthwatering Margherita!

Gifts for sharing

At times like these, people tend to feel more isolated. Even a little treat can help remind them that they’re not alone, and that the real meaning of the season is caring and community. Perk up winter afternoons with practical gifts teams can share with family and friends, like boxes of Barefoot Brownies or Krispy Kreme doughnuts (we even offer a vegan option, so your treats stay inclusive!). Or add some festive cheer to everyone’s commute with a choice of warm drink from Caffè Nero or Greggs – so the entire team can come together over a cuppa.

Gift cards 

We wouldn’t usually condone gifting gift cards at Christmas (we’ve got a great alternative to those!) but this year is a little different. Consider sending gift cards for groceries, takeaway, retail, or dining, or a meal at PizzaExpress for both a thoughtful and practical way to show your people you care.

Gifts for wellbeing

Gifts that look after your team’s health and wellbeing are some of the most practical gifts of all. The festive season is when sickness leave is usually at its highest, and end of year burnout is a genuine concern for many team members. Give your people a physical and mental boost with gifts like our gym and spa passes – not only are they a great way to change up the daily routine, they also show you genuinely care about them staying well. 

Our nourishment kits and supplement packs by Zooki are office-friendly gifts that are easy to keep on hand for a mid-afternoon vitamin boost.
