Christmas in the office can be super stressful. You’re closing up projects, ensuring everything won’t fall apart while you’re on leave, all while trying your best to celebrate and reflect on the year just been. To add to your to-do list… Christmas gifts.
Gifting your clients, staff, and partners a thoughtful thank you present can go a really long way; especially if it aligns with your focus on sustainability. Christmas is not the time to throw out your environmental efforts and disregard your corporate responsibility. Ensure you’re making the best decisions for all stakeholders (that includes the planet!), even in the smallest decisions; like your Christmas Gifts.
To make this silly season easier, here are 5 Sustainable Christmas Gift Ideas for New Zealand Corporates.
Say “you’re valued” with a beautiful tree, terrarium, or gift basket. You can even choose to have your organisation’s logo embossed into the wooden box the gift comes in. Tree Gifts have provided gifts for business such as Trademe, Fujitsu and many more. Who doesn’t like a beautiful plant for their home or garden?

Perhaps the most unique sustainable corporate gift of them all, is the concept of gifting trees to a New Zealand river in need. Simply purchase a bundle of native trees, choose the river you’d like them planted at, and pass on the card to your staff member or client to say “Merry Christmas”!
