For most on your gift list this year you probably want to keep the budget reasonable. However, there are always cases where it is appropriate to spend a little more. How much you should spend on business gifts will depend on a number of factors. But once you decide on your budget, you then have to decide on a gift.
Business Gifts Under $100
Chocolate and Wine Treasure Box
Delivered in a solid wood chest this is one gift basket that takes things to a fancier level. Inside the keepsake box is an assortment of decadent chocolate all created in a candy kitchen located in Southern Oregon. To pair with the sweet treats is a bottle of Rose Lane Red, great for a wine lover.
A set of these agate bookends could make a great office gift. Natural products tend to feel more high end and these bookends are made from solid agate and dyed in a jewel tone to bring out the natural pattern in the stone. Each one is a little different and can add a unique touch to a bookcase or desk.
Agrarian Tool Basket
Perfect for that person on your gift list that likes yard work or growing their own food. This tool basket is hand crafted and includes a removable canvas liner that offers tool storage while out in the garden. You can even throw in some gardening tools to round out the gift and still stay under the $100 mark.
This plaid wool throw from L.L. Bean makes a cozy and classic gift for just about anyone on your list. Woven in the USA and yarn-dyed for long standing color, it’s designed to stand the test of time. But maybe the best part about it is it’s machine washable.
Peet’s Coffee Sampler
There will always be a coffee drinker on your list, or more likely many. A coffee sampler gift box like this one from Peet’s Coffee could be really appreciated. Six half pound samples of Peet’s Major Dickason’s Blend, Uzuri African Blend, French Roast, Guatemala San Sebastian, Sumatra and Ethiopian Fancy are included.
Metallic Rim Nesting Bowls
This set of three pretty porcelain nesting bowls would make a lovely gift for the hostess on your list. They may look delicate with their hand painted golden metallic rim. But each bowl is dishwasher, freezer and even oven safe making them great for not just serving food but preparing it as well.
