The Best Christmas Gifts For Customers In 2023

With autumn officially here, it's safe to say that Christmas is fast approaching. And whether you're ready to deck the halls with boughs of holly or are more reluctant to admit that it's (whisper it) less than three months to go until December 25th, one thing's for certain: now's the perfect time to get your corporate Xmas gifting ticked off for 2023.


With a huge range of branded Christmas gifts for you to choose from, we're confident that Total Merchandise has got all the options your business could possibly need when it comes to customer gifting this winter. 

Whether you're planning to hand out items at an event or are thinking about posting presents to key clients, we can help, with everything from letterbox-friendly items to budget-friendly goodies available. 

How To Choose The Best Christmas Gifts For Customers

Thinking about ordering the Xmas presents for your clients? With years of experience in this field, we've pulled together a few simple tips to help you pick the perfect festive giveaways for your customers. 

#1 Delay now, regret later. (AKA place your order ahead of time!)

We'd always recommend planning your gift-giving strategy well in advance: not only does this get it off your to-do list but it also ensures that you won't miss out if a popular product goes out of stock. If you can, aim to have gifts with your customers before the Christmas countdown truly begins, allowing them to enjoy and appreciate the gesture during the festivities.

Be mindful of any potential postal or courier delays, especially during the busy holiday period. Also, be aware of any product-specific timelines.

 Ordering Advent calendars, for example? We'll ask to receive your artwork by a specific cut-off point to ensure that you (and your customers) can receive your products on time. If you don't have the space to receive your products in advance, you can still place your order today and simply specify the future date you need them by. 

#2 Choose products that align with your brand. 

Ensure that the gifts you choose reflect the quality and image of your brand, as well as align with your company's ethos.

A carefully chosen present not only leaves a positive impression with your customers but can also reinforce your brand's reputation and values; for example, you might want to consider selecting items that are UK-made or eco-friendly.

#3 Use our filters to find the products that match your precise requirements.

Whether you're working with a specific deadline in mind or want items to suit a precise MOQ (minimum order quantity), use our filters to find the perfect corporate Christmas gifts to match your needs:

  • Quantity Required allows you to find the products that match your precise unit needs.
  • Delivered By allows you to set the date you'd like (or you need) to receive items by.
  • Category gives you the ability to browse by everything from eco to UK-made. 

Outside of those factors, you'll also want to give consideration to the type of gift you want to order. Popular options include:

  • Edible: chocolate, mince pies, Prosecco, cookies... We've got a huge range of tasty treats that your customers will love - if you can bear to give them away!
  • Decorative: baubles printed or engraved with your design are a great way to associate your brand with Christmas, year after year.
  • Luxurious: want to wow your customers? Treat them to something extra-special, like a piece of impressive tech or some elegant glassware.
  • Letterbox-friendly: from seed sticks to flat-pack foodie gifts, we've got a range of items that are perfect for festive direct mail campaigns. 
  • Eco: keen to add a touch of green to your festive gifting? Keep your eyes peeled for the green leaf symbol, which denotes our eco and sustainable options.
