The best corporate Christmas gifts for the creative types
Yes, it’s that time of year again and you’re pulling your hair trying to figure out what to buy that arty, edgy, colourful and hip client of yours. We’ve got you covered with gifts for lovers of everything pop cultural – with an occasional retro twist

Creative corporate gifts

Crosley Cruiser Natural Canvas Bluetooth vinyl record player   

£100 
Vinyl is continuing its steady popularity march, but playing them can sometimes be tricky – the old record players don’t always give the best sound quality. This Bluetooth-driven device is the perfect marriage of old and new. Now, your music-loving client can play tunes on a retro record player (and maintain that high cool-factor) straight from their smart-phone.

Les Girls trinket tray 

£98 
This colourful and cheeky tray will add character to an office desk or a bedside table. It’s perfect for storing little knick-knacks such as keys, headphones or lip balms. The gold accents also add a touch of luxury.









Creative corporate gifts

Fisura lava lamp 

£40 
Lava lamps are well and truly back on the scene and will add a charming 70s vibe to any environment. This little number also creates a warm, sparkling lighting effect when lit.

Creative corporate gifts

Polaroid SX-70 camera 

£390 
The charm of a Polaroid camera is its ability to instantly print the photo and for you to annotate. This, and the retro effect it gives the images, is why they have become so popular again. But some of them can be chunky and unpractical, which is why this classic is so brilliant. It folds up to a smartphone-sized box.

Creative corporate gifts

Frida Kahlo cushion 

£30 
Mexican boho is huge this year – the strong colours, the crazy patterns and rich textures are a favourite with designers, party planners and art-lovers alike. This beautiful cushion will add vibrancy to any environment.









Creative corporate gifts

Mia metallic tote bag 

£45 
Metallic accessories add instant luxury to any outfit, and we especially love this big tote. It doubles nicely as work and going-out bag as its large enough to store magazines, work documents, your packed lunch and a pair of heels for those after-work drinks.
 









Creative corporate gifts

Original Soundtrack: Dirty Dancing vinyl record 

£25 
Nobody will put this baby in the corner! This record works just as well being on display on a shelf or a wall as it does being played. Film enthusiasts will have the time of their life listening to classic hits from the 1987 hit film, such as ‘Hungry Eyes’ and ‘Be My Baby’.












Creative corporate gifts

Off-White phone case 

£70 
This will help your client make a statement as well as protecting their screen from the inevitable drunken drop– we’ve all been there.







Creative corporate gifts

Real Kombucha 

£15 (six-pack) 
Kombucha is the latest fad to hit the hipster scene. The fermented tea, with its slight alcoholic content and culture of bacteria and yeast, is supposed to have various health benefits. This one is made only with the natural flavourings inherent in the tea leaves themselves.









Creative corporate gifts

Shit armchair 

£890 
Anyone who’s had a crappy day won’t be able to resist smiling when seeing this colourful and passive-aggressive chair. The pop-art styled furniture will also be a focal point in any living room or office. Fun, stylish and a clear talking point, this is one for the bold.









Creative corporate gifts

Fastnet Stripe apron 

£70 
Get your client to throw the naked lady apron in the bin right now – this quality, 100% cotton apron in a stylish and simplistic striped pattern will do the job. This gift will go down well with clients conscious of short-travelled products, ethical production and fair trade, too – it’s made in England!









Creative corporate gifts

Art Record Covers book 

£50 
Record covers are so much more than just, well, record covers. It’s a further means of expression that encompasses everything from art, politics and philosophy. This book contains some of the last 70 years’ most iconic covers and their background.
