Inexpensive Corporate Gifts To Ensure Your Gesture Goes A Long Way

by Emi Noguchi

Ah, the corporate gift! An end-of-year bonus is probably one of the more powerful ways to acknowledge the hard work of your employees. But what about when you want to boost morale, celebrate your team’s accomplishments, or give a long-time colleague a more personal send-off? To thank your staff for their precious labor, it’s so important to give them something high-quality and thoughtful. Even if you have a large team to thank or your budget is stretched thin, you can still show your sincere gratitude! Luckily, here at Bokksu, we’re all about authenticity and quality. Here’s a list of unique employee appreciation gifts at various price points. If you’re also looking for some memorable client appreciation gifts, you’re likely to find something here that’s more than suitable.

Bokksu Tote Bag

Bokksu Snack Tote Bag

This super-cute “snack snack snack snack snack” tote can be a celebration of a lifestyle, the expression of one’s inner monologue, or a hint as to what lies within, bag and toter both. We’d like to consider it one part of a modular gift set: a tote bag alone can feel like a generic 5K giveaway, but this bag pairs well with literally any Bokksu snacks you stash inside! If you’d like to hand-select personalized treats for your colleagues, spend some time roaming the aisles of our online Boutique. You have the extra hour: we’ve already taken care of the wrapping for you!

Green Tea Gift Box

Nekocha Green Tea 18

If neko means “cat” and all things -cha are tea, then you already know this is the perfect gift for the tea-drinking cat-lover in your work life. This pack of six “Nekocha'' tea bags is a designer’s delight, from the graphic outer wrapping to the black cat tags at the end of each string, meant to be saved and linked into a tiny cat garland. Upon first sip, the tea-drinker will note that all this delightful packaging is actually matched by a subtle and soothing green tea. Be sure to let your recipient know to use hot water (not boiled) for optimal taste.

Rice cracker japanese gift box

Senbei Lab Gift Box: Deluxe Rice Crackers

Maker-partner Senbei Lab went all out when they put together this box! You’ll find Japanese seven-spice, granulated sugar, sesame, kelp, and so on, and so forth. This box set is for foodies, those who like a satisfying crunch, and any enthusiast of traditional Japanese snacks. Sweet, salty, umami, and even a little spicy, these senbei are not just a food: they’re an opportunity for deskmates to compare, contrast, and break bread...or, crackers, as the case may be.

Pocky gift box

Pocky: Otona no Kohaku Adult Amber

This is what to get the whisky enthusiast when you either don’t know anything about whisky, don’t know what they like to drink, or don’t have the funds to get them the good stuff. The connection between whisky and this beloved chocolate stick in the shape of a cigarette-holder? Pocky: Otona no Kohaku Adult Amber is actually meant to pair with whisky! Unique, affordable, thoughtful, surprising, and even a little mysterious...if you’ve been seeking corporate gift ideas for employees, this one certainly ticks all the boxes, plus a couple write-ins.

Tokyo Milk Treat Gift Box

Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory Gift Box: Chocolate Cookie Assortment

This gift box has it all: cookies done right, in flavors you’ve never seen, all wrapped with care and elegance. And because it comes with three boxes of thirty pieces, you or your client can decide exactly how to divvy up the goods! Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory is an exceptional Japanese confectionery, in part due to its fabulous flavor combinations. In this case, you’ll be gifting three: Salt and Camambert (for the fan of salty sweets), Honey and Gorgonzola (for the experimentalist and umami-chaser), and (for all the rest) the tamer, ultra-smooth Chocolate and Mascarpone. You may have noticed a theme: yes, Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory did make a gift box of “chocolate cookies” that all feature cheese!

Well, have we whet your appetite? Perhaps you’ve already clicked on over to the Bokksu Boutique, in which case you can’t see this. For you, stalwart readers: we can’t recommend our shop enough. You’ll find sweets and snacks for the picky eater, the vegetarian, and the one who’s gluten-free. There are so many great options which we had to exclude for brevity, but they all look absolutely delicious. Not every employer gives their workers snacks, so please leave a review and let us know how they taste!
