Top 5 Business Gift Box Ideas

We are in the home stretch of 2020.  Although many of us will be glad to get this year behind us, there are changes that will remain part of the next normal, including the business gift box. Celebrations are going to look different than they have in the past.  Just because we may not be together in person doesn't mean we can’t celebrate together.  Over the last few months, the AlphaGraphics Kansas City team has worked with several clients to create agBox. A fun, and inventive gift boxes that teams connect with each other and their customers.  Gifts are appreciated at any time of year and are a great way to engage your audience.  Here are the top 5 ideas on ways to create and personalize an agBox for your brand.

Holiday Box

While the winter holidays are upon us, don’t forget that there are some fun celebrations in the first quarter of the year.  Think National Bubble Bath Day (Jan 8th), Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day, or World Water Day (March 2).  Create a business gift box that connects your brand to your customers.  Need more inspiration? Find a holiday or cause that connects with your brand. 
  • Holiday Card
  • Lotion
  • Hot Chocolate Mix
  • Tumbler
  • Handwritten Note Card
  • Fuzzy Socks
  • Blankets

Human Resources - New Employee Kit

If you can’t greet a new employee in person, what better way to get them onboarded and connected with the company culture than decking them out with all of the items they need to get started on the job.  From office materials, apparel, and HR and training documentation, a New Employee Kit can make a great impression on that incredible new employee you just hired.
  • Personalized Face Mask
  • Hand Sanitizer 
  • Backpack
  • Branded Apparel
  • Water Bottle
  • Employee Handbook
  • Business Cards
  • Planner


Remote training is tough!  We get it.  Digital fatigue is a real thing when we are spending all day online working. Learning remotely sounds awful.  Research shows delivering training materials that include manipulatives and physical learning tools improve the learning experience and improve retention.  Consider some of the following items for your next training session.
  • Mug with Coffee
  • Stress Cube to use as dice
  • Custom whiteboard 
  • Magnets for learning development
  • Notebook
  • Desk Calendar
  • Training Manual

Conferences and Meetings

You can’t attend the annual conference.  What do you do next?  Host a virtual conference.  Create a box that helps your clients and members connect like they might in person.  Allow vendors and sponsors to include products and sales materials for the box.  
  • Branded Rocks Glass
  • Ring Light to make sure everyone looks great on video!
  • Conference Agenda
  • Tablet Sleeve
  • Headphones/Earbuds
  • Games, samples, tools, or other industry-specific items that recipients would want.

Gift Boxes for Promotions & Celebrations 

The reason to send a gift doesn’t need to be big.  Celebrating the everyday small victories and accomplishments can be more meaningful than the big events.  Consider how you can create a celebration or promotion for any reason.  Search gift ideas at our promotional product website.
  • Opening / Reopening - gift cards, hand sanitizer, portable chargers, selfie stick
  • Award Recognition - personalized trophy/plaque
  • Industry News or Networking - directory or business card organizer
  • Anniversaries - congratulations card, lapel pins, pop sockets
  • Birthdays - yard sign or banner
  • Employee or Client Appreciation - thank you card, notepad, pen, coasters, a game set
  • Membership Packet - membership card, coupons, button, stickers and decals
Gift boxes come in all sizes or shapes.  And not necessarily in boxes.  Bubble envelopes and other containers work too.  As you consider holidays and celebrations over the next year, let AlphaGraphics Kansas City help you develop just the right gift.
