1. Tribute Press French Press Coffee Maker

Coffee connoisseurs prefer the classic French press method of brewing for its simplicity and purity of taste. The Tribute Press coffee maker gets points for modern styling, and how it uses hot water and coarsely ground beans to create a pot of delicious coffee in just four short minutes! Environmentally-conscious coffee aficionados love how it brews fabulous coffee without using wasteful paper filters, plastic capsules and the other trappings of modern coffee brewing.

2. HoMedics Massager

Spoil your VIPS with with a spa treatment they can enjoy right in the office or at home after a stressful day. The HoMedics Twin Percussion Pro Massager has dual head percussion to penetrate tight, sore muscles and an added heat feature to provide the ultimate in comfort and soothing. Three different massage nodes and variable speeds allow for a completely custom massage. Ahhhh...

3. Modern Sprout Aloe Find Balance Take Care Kit

Maintaining the delicate life/work balance isn’t easy, and consultants more often than not find work outweighing relaxation. Help them find a little zen in the midst of even the most hectic schedule with this cleverly curated kit that includes an Aloe Grow Kit (because nurturing a plant nurtures you) and a relaxing aromatherapy Reed Diffuser with lemongrass and clary sage essential oils.  

4. Rains Blanket

With cozy, soft and quilting on one side and Rains’ signature waterproof fabric on the other, this blanket offers a versatile and protective layer sure to be appreciated by Friday night football fans, avid campers, and more. Buckled webbing straps are a nice touch to make for easy packing, carrying and storage.

5. Compartes Chocolate Bar

If you’re giving chocolate, make it special—like Compartés, the nation’s hippest and most trendsetting chocolate shop. Since 1950, Compartés chocolatiers have been making gourmet chocolates from scratch by hand every day in their Los Angeles chocolate kitchens with fresh natural ingredients from local farmer’s markets. One of our faves (it’s so hard to choose) is the Marshmallow Crisp bar, a trifecta of rich milk chocolate, marshmallows, and crispy rice cereal.

6. Reform Sport Case for AirPods Pro 

Music lovers or anyone addicted to podcasts or Ted Talks will appreciate the maximum protection that the Reform Sport Case provides for their AirPods. The case’s modern, perforated surface pattern makes for a secure grip while dissipating heat. Antimicrobial defense on the shell eliminates and prevents 99.9% of surface bacteria. A removable lanyard is also included to keep the case securely tethered wherever you go.

7. Compass Brief Bag

Designed with simplicity in mind, the Compass brief bag is all you need to protect your 13” laptop and organize your other essentials for business on the go. Quick-access pockets keep your keys and phone at hand, while a plush, faux fur, padded compartment keeps your laptop protected. Premium lightweight flight nylon keeps its crisp good looks as it goes with you through the toughest of days, making it one of the best gifts for traveling consultants.

8. The North Face Canyon Flats Jacket

This just could be the perfect mid-weight activewear jacket thanks to breathable heathered fleece plus plenty of built-in stretch and raglan sleeves for maximum movement and comfort. We also like that it’s partially constructed from recycled fabrications. The winning combination of comfiness and sleek style are sure to warm the heart (and other parts) of your favorite consultant at home or play.

9. The Luxe Collection Raspberry Jam Petites 

When it comes to consulting firms' Christmas gifts, a gourmet gift basket the whole office can enjoy is often a great choice—as long as it’s filled with swoon-worthy goodies like the soft shortbread cookies with rich raspberry filling from Jocelyn Sweet Things. JST was founded by well-known gift basket industry designer Debbie Quintana, who knows a thing or 20 about curating products to make winning gift baskets—so you don’t have to.

10. Fitbit Charge 4 Fitness Tracker

An impressive gift for health-minded VIP consultants, the Charge 4 Fitness Tracker dazzles with an amazing array of features like built-in GPS, 24/7 heart rate tracking, sleep tracking, Spotify controls, payment capabilities, and more. It’s also swimproof (with water resistance up to 50 M) and includes guided breathing sessions, making it a great choice even for those choosing a less strenuous path to fitness. Because, really, we all need a little extra help to recover from holiday feasting, festivities and, um, families. 

11. The Chocolatier Goodies

In keeping with our advice to source your chocolate gifts from the very best, we suggest The Chocolatier Aneesh Popat’s handmade chocolates which are supplied to Michelin-starred restaurants. And for those that like to drink their chocolate, give them The Chocolatier’s  luxurious drink mix that’s a delicate and aromatic infusion of green cardamom, fine coffee, and flakes of rich chocolate. No holiday gift basket should be without these gourmet treats! Plus, if you’re on the hint for business thank you gifts, look no further than Chocolatier Goodies! 

12. Muses Vase

Hawkins New York is known for homewares that are intentional, unexpected, and thus perfect gifts for management consultants. The Muses vase, with its classical, yet modern Grecian vibe, makes a bold statement—at the office or at home—all by itself or when filled with flowers and foliage. Have your florist create a holiday arrangement in it to take this gift to the next level.

13. Healing Candle

Give the uplifting aroma of velvet moss and citrus in a soy candle from Thought Catalog, a collective dedicated to crafting products designed to inspire our minds and our surroundings. They say “Healing is the process of remembering that everything is okay.”—words that can help even the busiest consultant maintain perspective. The environmentally-conscious will appreciate that the black tumbler container can be repurposed once the candle is spent.

14. Topo Rover Backpack

The durable Rover Pack Classic from a premium brand like Topo is a great way to spoil your consultants with a holiday gift that goes the distance. Around town or out on the trails, this superbly-engineered nylon pack will hold up in any environment. Exterior front pockets give quick access to smaller items; inside a laptop sleeve keeps your computer secure. Expandable side pockets hold water bottles or extra gear. All this in a sleek silhouette befitting a professional business consultant.

15. Custom Larq Bottle PureVis 

Today’s COVID-weary world demands LARQ’s Bottle PureVis—the world's first self-cleaning water bottle and water purification system.

Plus this bottle keeps water cold for 24 hours cold, and hot for 12.

Don’t Forget…

Quality counts. Whatever gifts you decide to give, choose the highest quality that fits your budget. Afterall, the gifts you give to your business consultants (or anyone, for that matter) reflect not only how much you value them, but also your company’s image and integrity. Shoddy gifts might be quickly tossed, but the turn-off they engender will not be quickly forgotten.

Personalized thank you gifts are a top choice, especially when the item is a top quality, in-demand brand. Personalizing a gift shows forethought that adds extra value to the item gifted. If you’re intent on branding your gifts, we suggest you keep it subtle. Otherwise, your gifts might appear overly promotional and lose a lot of their luster.
