5 great gift ideas: Winter Edition

by Janne

Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year, is coming!

Christmas asks for a big decorated tree with a lot of presents under it.

Everyone likes to receive gifts, but oftentimes, it’s even more fun to give them. Presents are not only an expression of gratitude and appreciation.
They can also be used to make your company grow.

Especially with Christmas coming and the temperature dropping, some coziness is needed.


These outstanding gift ideas will certainly surprise you, your employees and clients. Go for a subtle statement piece or choose a conversation starter, everything is possible!

Stand out with some wearable, qualitative and sustainable statement pieces.
These products can be worn by everyone, all year round.

  • A cosy hoodie with or without zipper

A no-nonsense, reliable product to advertise your brand on. 
Hoodies are comfortable, warm and have a youthful look and feel to them.
The ideal winter gear for dressing your team if you ask me!

Let your company’s colors and logo be a part of the holiday cheer!


  • A customizable beanie

Urban fashion has brought the beanie back again.
Everyone appreciates a solid beanie, especially on cold, rainy winter days.
Flashy colors, a pompom or a modest design, the choice is entirely yours.

Decorate with a patch, a label or an embroidery of your logo, and the look is complete! Perhaps add a scarf and/or gloves and make it an outstanding surprise.



Winter, a great season to keep your brand’s name top of mind.
Go for bold and bright colors, a striking pattern or remarkable details.

With useful gifts your brand becomes visible in places you wouldn't go yourself. Win-win if you ask me!
