Oct 10, 2012
As the Holiday season quickly approaches, we thought we’d share the 10 best custom printed Christmas and Holiday gifts to share with employees, customers, volunteers, donors and others who have helped you in achieving your goals for this year.
As a green-friendly organization, we are highlighting only environmentally-friendly gift items -to keep with your and branding mission and goals
1. Live Christmas Tree Seedlings
These are one of my favorite gifts-a live blue spruce evergreen tree with your logo printed on the package. The live tree seedlings are available in a variety of packaging options-from a simple tree in a plastic bag to a plastic tube, a cardboard mailer tube and even burlap, depending on your budget. These tree seedlings are priced as low as a standard Christmas card (as low as 99 cents each) and they will not be thrown away or sit with the dozens of other cards in a pile.
2. Recycled Journal Books and Jotters
One of the most popular gift items this year are recycled journal books, planners and jotters. Great for conferences but also for planning and taking ownership of New Year’s goals, plans and resolutions, these journal books come in a wide variety of sizes and with dozens of cover materials.
3. Environmental Calendars
Imprinted calendars are a miniature billboard for your company that is seen 365 days – for just pennies per impression. Keep your logo and brand on your customers’ wall or desk with these green 2013 calendars.
4. Green Books:
Looking for something a little bit different that will help you to remain visible for years? Then try some eco books.

They are even available with a custom insert page for greater branding opportunities.

Tumblers are the ideal option for the person on the go. Perfect for most car cup holders, insulated tumblers can be used for hot or cold drinks and they encourage reusability. Help stop your recipients from using paper or Styrofoam cups and get them to drink from reusable and refillable tumblers.
6. Seeded Holiday Cards:
If you still want to send a Christmas card but don’t want it to end up in a landfill, then consider a card made from wildflower seeds and paper pulp. Once the card has served its purposes, the recipient can just soak it in water and place in a flower pot or garden – and watch it bloom in the Spring. Full color digital printing is available, and planting instructions are printed on there, as well.
