Luckily, we’ve got ready-to-ship luxury corporate gifts for clients, coworkers, high-end friends and anyone else you need to wow!
1. Luxury Gift Box for the Executive Who Has It All

- Black linen notebook by Appointed Co.
- Gourmet coffee by Onyx Coffee Lab
- Coffee Scoop
- Wireless charger by Courant
- Hand sanitizer by Noshinku

Available in our Corporate Gifting Catalog, this gift can be ordered in bulk and customized with your company logo, branded card inserts, and more. But if you need this gift in a pinch, don't worry! The Executive is available in our ready-to-ship collection, too.
2. Luxe Gifts for Black-Tie Events
Planning a black-tie event, extravagant gala, or swanky soirée? Surprise your guests with a head-to-toe custom gift!
Whether you send an indulgent gift to invitees before the event to get them extra-excited to attend, or you plan to treat guests to a parting gift at the evening’s end — either way, a luxurious gift box certainly sets the tone for the event!
Take these custom gifts we designed for WSJ Magazine as an example. For their Annual Innovator Awards, we curated gifts to complement their theme: "A night at the movies” meets “a black-tie affair.” Each gift included:
- Classic movie theater snacks, like gourmet popcorn and gummy bears
- The ceremony program on fine-grain paper
- The most recent issue of WSJ Magazine
But custom branded packaging we designed for WSJ really stole the show! Each gift was packaged in sleek faux-leather boxes with an embossed logo, a specially crafted tray insert to create a multi-layered gifting experience, and custom black-and-white boxes for snacks that gave them tailored flair. Talk about a show-stopper!
3. High-End Self-Care Gift Box
Even VIP clients get stressed (maybe more stressed than we know). Give them a perfect way to destress with gorgeous luxury corporate gifts.
For the ultimate in letting it all go, The Recharge refills their batteries. From tea to sweets to bath soak, they’ll find their moment of Zen:
- Gourmet green tea
- Green linen notebook
- Small-batch caramels
- Coconut bath soak
- Grow candle
- Insulated travel mug
- Artisanal honey
- Gold tea strainer
Psst … What better way to make a tea strainer luxe than by making it golden? (Don’t tell them we told you so, but it makes the tea tastier, too.) Plus, self-care gifts are a super-hot gift box trend!
4. High-End Gourmet Gift Box
Looking for luxurious executive gift sets?
Well, you can’t go wrong with high-end corporate gifts that include items for executives to enjoy with family and friends! The key is to add a product they can keep — and actually use — for years to come, like a custom wood cutting board or personalized ceramic mug.
We designed a chic, gourmet gift box for everyone on the team at Databricks. They wanted a high-quality yet practical gift for corporate executives.
Of course, we made sure to meet all their expectations! We packed the box with premium products:
- Sparkling tea
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Wildflower honey
- Mixed nuts
- Rosemary crackers
- An engraved cutting board
- A brass cheese knife
As you can see, this unique gift would be a great addition to anyone’s kitchen.
Plus, the custom cutting board and cheese knife polished off a special — and lasting — gift experience. In other words, it wasn’t a one-and-done snack array (delicious yet fleeting).
We topped it all off with custom packaging. Do the same, and voila! You’ve got a gorgeous corporate gift for VIP clients — or anyone else you want to impress!

5. Minimalist Chic Gift Box
Raise your hand if you’re guilty of having Champagne taste on a beer budget…
OK, now let’s be real. There’s no shame here.
If you need to send hundreds (or thousands) of expensive gifts but don’t have a boundless budget, finding high-end corporate gifts can be … difficult.
Of course, we don’t want you to have to sacrifice quality for quantity! That’s why we created The Black Tie. This distinguished gift may be small in size (and price), but it’s big in style.
And it’s one of our most popular luxury corporate gift ideas!
By the way, did you know we’re partners with Sendoso? It’s one of the many third-party gifting platforms where you can find our great gift boxes!
Last year, the Sequoia Health team ordered 1,000 Black Tie sets for clients as thank-you gifts via Sendoso. They told us they were relieved to find such an extravagant — and affordable —- gift that they could buy in bulk!
Do you love it? Luckily, you can find it right here, right now!
6. Indulgent Spa Gift Box
One of the most popular gift box trends right now involves self-care and wellness. In fact, interest in self-care spiked during the height of the pandemic and keeps climbing.
So treat your clients to a sumptuous gift box that inspires them to indulge in a little self-care. Luxury corporate gifts don’t have to be just for high-end corporate events — VIPs can take that mindfulness home!
We’ve designed all kinds of gifts centered around wellness and mindfulness. You have hundreds of top-notch products to choose from. And those products can shape an unforgettable experience for VIP clients!
Recently, one of our favorite projects was for our friends at Kaedian LLP. They wanted a sumptuous spa-themed gift for company clients!
We met the challenge with pleasure — and indulgent products:
- A weighted eye mask by Nodpod
- A glass water bottle by bkr
- An elegant journal by Appointed
- Mindfulness cards by LSW
- More pampering goodies
Who wouldn’t love to get such a gorgeous, quality gift?

8. VIP End-of-Year Gift Box
Treat your VIPs to a lavish gift box as an end-of-year thank-you. That way, they can kick off the new year in impeccable style!
Go for something super sleek that’s also fun and festive — think Champagne, sparklers and confetti cannons!
Last year, The Washington Post team found us while researching distinctive corporate holiday gift ideas (impressive, right?). They wanted to find an ultra-unique present for clients and partners as a toast to 2022. And really — the holiday season is ripe for gifting opportunities!
We created these fun black-and-gold gifts (with a dash of sparkle, too) for the occasion! Not to brag, but we went all out:

9. Campfire Charm Luxe Gift Box
“Roughing it” doesn’t necessarily mean having it rough. With a cozy throw, high-end mugs and gourmet tea, your VIP will get lost in the wilderness. If that means around their backyard fire pit, that works fine, too.
They’ll love these long-lasting and deeply satisfying items in The Weekender:
- Waffle throw blanket
- Scented travel candle
- Gold candle snuffer
- Chai concentrate
- Two insulated mugs
Once again, a shimmer of gold goes a long way. A golden candle snuffer makes sure this gift is truly unforgettable, on the hiking trail or in the office! (As a tip, this box is also a lovely holiday gift that meets any tradition.)
10. High-End Office Gift Box
Hmm … still weighing your options?
When in doubt, opt for a professional vibe with a slick, smart gift box filled with office essentials. Think items like notebooks, coffee, heated mugs, tech gadgets and so forth. (Hey, a mini Bluetooth speaker or leather laptop bag would certainly make an impression!)
The key to making an office gift feel luxurious is using personalization and custom branding.
You’ve got scads of options. Maybe you could include a high-quality notebook embossed with recipients' initials. Then, add branded elements — like a coffee mug or tumbler with a subtle logo detail and custom packaging — to tactfully bring all the parts together.
One of our favorite custom office gift designs was this premium gift box we crafted for Synack’s employees. We packed goodies in glossy foldover black boxes and featured a branded packaging suite, complete with a textured gift box sleeve and custom closure sticker.
Inside that special box, it got even better:
- A sleek branded notebook from Appointed
- A bag of Owl's Howl espresso with a stainless steel coffee scoop
- A bright, branded coffee tumblr
- An assortment of mouthwatering snacks

Celebrating a major milestone with your team? That calls for so much more than a standard swag bag!
Give a gift that's actually on your level with unique luxury corporate gifts your employees truly want. Go for items like party games, snacks, Champagne flutes, sparklers and confetti!
When System1 went public on the NYSE, its team wanted to celebrate their IPO in style! System1’s team has 300-plus people working across the globe, so we were thrilled to build a gift box that’d let them celebrate together, even while miles apart.
With that in mind, we made their gift party-perfect:
- Custom-branded Champagne flutes
- A piñata puzzle
