Spirits and Barware Gifts

The office bar cart is back in a big way. Help your clients and colleagues celebrate in style by presenting bar tool sets or cocktail glasses with bottles of wine or spirits. Muddlers, jiggers, highball glasses, martini glasses and cocktail glasses are also barware classics. Wine glasses are an excellent corporate gift idea that offer a sophisticated look at an affordable price. When gifting barware and alcohol to colleagues, be sure to do a little research to confirm the items are a fit for the recipient’s lifestyle.


Cheese and Food Baskets

Everyone likes food, so it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with a food basket. Artisanal cheeses, cocktail nuts fruit make a tasty combination. Include handmade jams and farm-fresh cheeses from local businesses to make the gift feel more distinctive and special. Consider adding a wood serving platter or a small cheese knife that the recipients will enjoy using again and again. If you opt for a different mix of food, think about including small prep tools or simple kitchen linens as part of the gift package. Present your offerings in a decorative basket to create a collected look.

Vases, Candles and Home Decor

Small decorative items, such as vases, candles and picture frames, are versatile gifts perfect for both home and office settings. If you choose to go with a ceramic or glass vase, personalize it with a bouquet of fresh or faux flowers appropriate to the season. Appeal to the greatest number of people by choosing sculptures, centerpiece bowls or seasonal decorations that are neutral in taste and classically styled. Faux potted plants, such as orchids and succulents, are also universally appealing. They add a natural element to home and office spaces. Regardless of light availability, recipients can enjoy the beauty of botanicals without the need to water or care for them.


Coffee and Tea Gifts

What could be more appropriate for a corporate gift than tea or coffee? Tailor your choice to the recipient's preference, and try looking for indulgent blends, fair-trade beans or flavored teas. Complete the present with specialty accessories such as mugs, teaspoons, coffee spoons, a teapot or a single-serve French press.


Gift Cards

If you’re buying for the whole department or even for the entire company, gift cards are a great way to please everyone. Recipients can choose from a wide array of classic cookware, fresh dinnerware and modern home decor. They could also put the gift card towards larger items, including furniture pieces or sets. Email online gift cards directly to recipients to streamline your gift-giving. For a beautiful in-person presentation, our physical gift cards come packaged in sophisticated folio cases. Crate and Barrel’s extensive assortment ensures that all recipients will find something that perfectly complements their personal style and existing decor.
