Corporate Gifting Trends for 2022

If you’re thinking about choosing the right gifts for your clients or employees this year, Minuteman Press can help. These five trends in corporate gifting provide ideas for everyone on your list. Our local customer service staff is also here to help you choose the right gift for your needs and your budget.

Winter Apparel

As the mornings are frosty and it’s dark before dinner time, winter is one everyone’s minds. Keep them cozy this year with branded winter gear from labels like Mercer+Mettle, The North Face, Eddie Bauer, and Carhartt. We carry the styles they want to wear – down alternatives, soft shells, waterproof parkas, and even cozy sherpa fleece.

Self-care and Personal Wellness

The holidays are a great time to give the gift of self-care. Let them take a break from cooking, entertaining, and decorating. This DIY lip balm kit will give them a fun experience and leave them with lip balm to last through the cold winter! The company assembling these ingredients is focused on sustainability and high-quality. They’re also proud to give a portion of their proceeds to help honeybees!

Sustainable Gifts

This set of bamboo travel utensils is meaningful and practical. They’ll use it for years to come and they’ll remember that your company is also committed to helping the environment. What a positive, lasting message! The bag is made of soft cotton and the set is completely recyclable and BPA-free. This set is a great gift for bringing lunch to work or for traveling.

Office Items

Branded desk items ensure that your logo is highly visible in the recipient’s office environment. This wireless fast charger is also a phone stand and pen holder. It might become the most useful item on their desk! It’s made from sustainable bamboo.

Snacks and Sweets

Consumable gifts are a great choice when you’re not sure what they want or need. Everyone loves a fun treat! We work with some of the best food service providers in the country. We add your logo or message to name brand sweets like Godiva, Mrs. Fields, and Jelly Belly. Items like popcorn and nuts are available too!

There is truly something for everyone in our online catalog. We can also help you narrow down the choices if you have a budget or recipient in mind. At Minuteman Press, we make corporate gifting easy!

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Hygge

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Hygge

We’re going to let you in on a little secret. It’s what the Danish call ‘hygge’ (pronounced “hoo-guh”) and it’s ahh-mazing. Our New England winters can go from dreary to bitterly cold, and some days you just want to curl up on the couch. The concept of hygge embraces that feeling. Hygge helps the Danes get through their long dark winters, and if they can do it, we can do it! Think soft slippers, a cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and a good book. All of these things are hygge.

For a glimpse at hygge in Copenhagen, check out this video.

Hygge has also been featured in The New Yorker and Country Living magazines.

You’ll notice that the focus isn’t on commercialism, but rather on good feelings and atmosphere.  The comfort that comes from your own worn-in couch and grandma’s dishes.  Something comfortable and cozy.

So do the Danes just sit around in their fuzzy socks drinking cocoa all day?  No…they’re at work too.  They find ways to bring hygge into everyday life.  Maybe it’s a favorite mug for your afternoon coffee break or a warm sweater.

Minuteman Press can help bring a little hygge into your workplace with these cozy and comfortable ideas! Corporate wear doesn’t have to be a button-down shirt. Soft fleece, knit hats, and long scarves are thoughtful ideas for the chilly months ahead. 

We carry lots of hygge gift ideas too…no minimum quantities, so perfect for co-workers or family members!

As Americans, we enjoy a melting pot of ideas from many cultures.  Sushi from Japan.  Beer from Germany.  St. Patty’s Day from the Irish.  We hope you’ll embrace some of Denmark and add hygge to your way of life!

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Free Designs

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Free Designs

Everyone can appreciate saving time and money in December.  Bonus if you can do it with style!  There are many designs that you can download – for free! – and use for your family’s holiday celebrations.  Items like greeting cards, place cards, and gift tags.  If you want to print these on thick stock with professional finishing, just send the file to us and we’ll get back to you with a quote.  Why not take advantage of these beautiful designs?

The creative folks over at The Spruce Crafts have shared this list of free designs. 

For seasonal printables that you can frame or add to a winter display, check out these fun choices from SixCleverSisters.  These are sure to liven up your walls or mantel in December!

Gift tags shouldn’t be boring.  Options like these will really stand out with festive flair!

Need more inspiration?  Google does the trick.  Here are the results for ‘free Christmas printable‘ and ‘free winter printable‘. 

Quick printing tips…PDFs are always better for printing because the fonts and layout won’t change from computer to computer.  Also, try to find a design with crop marks if possible.  These look like little black tick marks along the edges of the design, and they show you where to cut so the image is centered. 

We hope that these simple ideas bring inspiration to your holiday planning.  Even if you aren’t a creative type, combining several ideas from other people will add a personal touch to your holiday and make it feel unique.

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Gifting Help

Making the Holiday Season Simple with Gifting Help

We’re in it now.  Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday!  We hope that you’re excited for a feast with your family, favorite recipes, and a chance to create memories.

For many people, Thanksgiving weekend also signals the start of the holiday shopping season.  (Black Friday shoppers….you know who you are!)

For some people, the shopping season can turn frantic, expensive, and stressful.  We don’t think it needs to be this way. 

Here are some great ideas for simplifying the season.  Remember, it’s about being honest about what works for you…not keeping up with everyone else’s Facebook photos or tackling those infinite Pinterest ideas.

Simple Lionheart Life

A great list of ideas for keeping the season simple, avoiding clutter, and living intentionally.   


It’s ok to say ‘no’ or to delegate tasks to others, especially if it helps you stay calm enough to enjoy the beauty of the season.  

While we don’t know what kind of sweater to get your grandma or what hot new toy your nephew wants, we can help you with business gifting.  Delegate that task to us and focus on your family!

We have gift ideas in every budget and in every quantity. The examples below are either consumable or practical, and they are thoughtful options if you’re trying to reduce clutter.

Custom candy and chocolate assortments to fit your tastes or colors.  Name brands like Godiva and M&Ms and snack foods are also available.   A cozy blanket will never go to waste.  We can tastefully embroider with your logo. This is the perfect winter gift! A thoughtful and useful gift for coffee, tea, or hot chocolate drinkers.  Even more special when you fill it with candy or cocoa packets!

We can also create online shops if you want to allow your employees to choose their gift.   Here are two online shops we created last month, one for a school for a fundraiser, and one for a medical practice for employee appreciation gifts.  You choose the styles, we create the online shop, and your employees make their choices.  We’ll deliver all completed orders (wrapped in plastic with a packing list) directly to your office.  Talk about simple!

We wish you the best this coming week of Thanksgiving!  We are so thankful to you for being our customers and followers.
