Luxury Corporate Gift Ideas to Wow Your VIPs this Year
Want to find the PERFECT gift to send to your VIPs, executives, board members, and top clients? You're in the right place!
When it comes to high-end corporate gifting, there's a lot of pressure! While sending a gift is always a kind gesture, you want to make sure you get it right — especially when you're sending gifts to your VIPs! Not only should the gifts be a good reflection of your company and brand, but you want to make sure they are something that your recipients will truly value and enjoy.
Good news for you — luxury corporate gifts are totally our thing! In this post, we're sharing the BEST luxury corporate gift ideas, complete with examples from our most premium projects for our past clients, plus ready-to-ship gift ideas for when you need a luxury corporate gift in a pinch!
1. Luxe Gifts for a Black-Tie Event
Planning a black-tie event, gala or swanky soirée? Surprise your guests with a thoughtfully curated selection of premium products that compliment your event’s theme. Whether you send a gift to your invitees beforehand to get them extra excited to attend, or treat your guests to a parting gift at the end of the evening, a luxurious gift box is a great way to set the tone for your event!
We had the pleasure of working with the WSJ Magazine to create elegant gift boxes for their Annual Innovator Awards. The gifts were inspired by “a night at the movies” meets “a black tie affair” — featuring a selection of classic movie theater snacks like popcorn and gummy bears, plus the ceremony program and the most recent issue of WSJ Magazine. The real show-stopper here was the custom packaging: the boxes were made of sleek faux leather with an embossed logo, a specially crafted tray insert to create a multi-layered gifting experience, and custom black and white boxes for each snack inside to create a tailored, elegant look.

2. Luxury Gourmet Gift Box
Looking for luxurious executive gifts? You can’t go wrong if you include high-quality products to be enjoyed with family and friends! The key is to include something they can keep (and use!) forever — like a wooden cutting board or a ceramic mug.
We designed these gourmet gift boxes for the team over at Databricks — they wanted something high-end, yet practical, to send to their executives. Filled with premium products like a bottle of sparkling tea, extra-virgin olive oil, wildflower honey, mixed nuts and rosemary crackers, this gift is a great addition to anyone’s kitchen. Plus, the custom engraved cutting board and brass cheese knife make for a really unique experience. Top it all off with custom packaging and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous corporate gift!

3. Minimalist Chic Gift Box
Raise your hand if you’re guilty of having Champagne taste on a beer budget… 🙋♀️
Let’s be real, if you need to send hundreds (or thousands) of corporate gifts but you don’t have an unlimited corporate gifting budget, it can be hard to find a gift that feels... luxurious! We don’t want you to have to sacrifice quality for quantity, so that’s why we created The Black Tie. This gift may be small in size (and price), but it’s BIG in style. And it’s one of our most popular corporate gift boxes!
P.S. Did you know we are integrated with Sendoso? It’s one of the many third party gifting platforms where you can also find our gifts! Last year, Sequoia Health ordered 1,000 Black Tie’s through Sendoso to send to their clients as thank you gifts. They told us they were relieved to find something this luxurious at this price available to buy in bulk!

4. Luxury Spa Gift
One of the most popular gift box trends right now is self care and wellness — in fact, the search volume for “self care gifts” has increased by 30% in the past year!
So treat your clients to a luxurious gift box that will inspire them to enjoy a little self-care. We’ve designed all kinds of gifts centered around wellness and mindfulness, and there are so many high-quality products to choose from to create an indulgent experience your recipient will never forget.
One of our favorite projects recently was for Kaedian LLP – they wanted a high-end spa themed gift to send to each of their clients! We included premium products like a weighted eye mask by Nodpod, a glass waterbottle by bkr, an elegant journal by Appointed, mindfulness cards by LSW, and more. Who wouldn’t love to receive such a gorgeous gift?!

5. VIP End of Year Gift
Treat your VIPs to a luxurious gift box as an end-of-year thank you gift so they can kick off the New Year in style! Go for something super sleek, yet fun and festive — think Champagne, sparklers, and confetti cannons!
Last year, The Washington Post found us when they were researching unique corporate holiday gift ideas — they wanted to send something ultra-luxurious to their clients and partners as a toast to the New Year. We created these fun black and gold gifts (with a touch of sparkle!) for the occasion! Complete with a bottle of sparkling, Champagne-infused popcorn, confetti, edible glitter, a sparkling cocktail recipe book, plus two pairs of 2022 eyeglasses, this custom gift box was the perfect way to ring in the New Year!

6. High-End Office Gift
When in doubt, go for a professional vibe with a super-sleek gift box filled with office essentials. Think things like notebooks, coffee, a heated mug, tech products, etc. The key to making an office gift feel luxurious is by incorporating personalization and custom branding — like a high-quality notebook embossed with your recipients' initials and adding branded elements, like a coffee mug or tumblr with a subtle logo detail, and branded packaging on the exterior of the gift.
One of our favorite custom office gift designs were these premium gift boxes we made for Synack's employees. These came in glossy fold-over black boxes and featured a branded packaging suite including a textured gift box sleeve and a custom closure sticker. Inside, recipients would find a sleek branded notebook from Appointed, a bag of Owl's Howl espresso with a stainless steel coffee scoop, a shiny, branded coffee tumblr, and delicious snacks.

7. Celebration Gift Box
Celebrating a big milestone with your team? This calls for so much more than a swag bag! Give a gift that's ACTUALLY on your level, with fun unique items your employees would ACTUALLY want. Think fun games, snacks, Champagne flutes, sparklers and confetti!
When System1 went public on the NYSE, they wanted to celebrate their IPO in style! With a team of over 300 people working all over the world, we were so excited to create a gift designed to help employees celebrate together, even when they're miles apart. With custom Champagne branded flutes, a piñata puzzle, sparklers and more, this gift is party perfect!

8. Luxury Cocktail Kit
Can't go wrong with a cocktail kit! Raise a glass to your VIPs and treat them to a luxury cocktail kit that will perfectly compliment their at-home bar! From delicious snacks to cocktail mixers to bar accessories like shakers and stirrers, there are tons of premium products that will make your recipients feel like they're getting the royal treatment!
We worked with The Hoover Institution at Stanford University to create these premium gift boxes for their society of donors. They were hosting a virtual happy hour event for their donors and wanted an experiential gift so that their attendees could make their own cocktail at home! With bronze bar accessories like a cocktail stirrer and branded martini glasses, specialty simple syrup and some gourmet snacks, this gift was a total hit!
