It’s no secret we heart Poketo. Now, your clients will too. The super functional desk planner features perforated sections for take home lists or can remain fully intact at the office.

For the Wild Card:
Coffee Sampler

Wake up, and smell the options! This affordable assortment of blends should please a variety of coffee drinker’s palettes.

For the Frequent Flyer:

For the Rebel Client:
This Read

Allow your clients to awaken their rebellious streak this year. Gift them Rebel Talent: Why It Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life, one of this year’s top 10 books on business and leadership.

For Students of Self-Care:
This Read

Playing your book suggestions a little safer? Try How to Not Always Be Working: A Toolkit for Creativity and Radical Self-Care. Everyone can get behind some self-care, mindfulness, and work/life separation.

For those with FOMO:
Something “Local”

Now’s your chance to share something straight from your hometown. Take our studio for example. Maybe we’d send some Portland-made honey to give clients a sweet taste of our stomping grounds.

Magazine Subscription

Print isn’t dead. Let your giftee select an inspiring publication to be delivered monthly. A sure way to keep them thinking about you all year long.

For Nature Novices:
Sill Planter + Air Plant

No dirt or real watering required. A regular misting keeps this low-maintenance plant looking fresh. Perfect for adding life to a cubicle or neglected window sill.

For Do Gooders and Chocolate Eaters:
Jcoco Mini Chocolate Bars

Edible goodness and a good cause. We love this gift for a bunch of reasons -- interesting flavors, bold packaging, energizing effects, and the non-gmo/gluten-free/kosher guarantee. Oh, and did we mention with every 3 ounces of jcoco chocolate sold, they donate a fresh serving of food to someone in need?

For the Snackers:
Seasonal Kernels

Something that tastes as good as its container looks? We’ll take it. Impress and delight clients with Cinnamon Bourbon Pecan Popcorn, a festive and decadent snack for off hours or improvised lunch breaks.

For the Cautious:

Perfect for clients that work from home. The dock cleverly protects and stores your phone and charging gear, while keeping away from curious pets or kids on-the-move!

For Clients Looking for Some Shut Eye:
Eye Stones

You may not be able to snag a massage deal under $25, but you can definitely help clients step away from the screen and rest their lids.

For Nostalgia Lovers:
Kodak FunSaver Disposable Camera

The gift of nostalgia never goes out of style. Clients will appreciate this fun “throwback” to simpler photography methods and put down their smartphones, even if for a second.

For Poppy People:
Poppin Double Tray

The first step to working better and “happier” is to declutter your space. This multifunctional and modern tray stores large and small items. Pick from a bold selection of colors to brighten up any client’s workspace.
