Grab your flip flops and sunscreen because it's not only summertime around here, but we’re headed to the beach as we feature three unique ways to create beach themed custom corporate gifts. Whether celebrating hard working employees with a beach vacation or simply showing appreciation to clients, we always enjoy working with companies to design custom branded gifts with a festive theme. Who can resist a day at the beach?

With salt in the air and sand in your toes, these custom corporate gift designs will have you feeling like you are ready for some summer fun. Speaking of summer and gifting, be sure to shop our collection of summer inspired gifts that are perfect this time of year. 

From sales incentive trips to employee appreciation campaigns, here are three unique custom beach-in-a-box corporate gift sets that we designed for our clients. 

Welcome Gifts for Nestle’s Offsite Trip in the Bahamas 

We designed festive tropical welcome gift baskets to be all about the beach for Nestle’s offsite trip in the Bahamas! Bold and bright with a touch of palm trees, of course, these welcome gift designs were ready to party by the sea. 

The colorful custom beach inspired gift baskets were packed with beach essentials in a yellow and mint green color palette to help guests relax and to perfectly set the tone for their company trip. For each gift, we sourced useful gifts including sunblock, mojito drink mix, travel wine mugs, a luxurious tropical candle, a palm tree bottle opener, and a palm leaf printed towel.

Nestle also wanted to include inside the gift baskets a mojito recipe card with watercolor illustrations alongside the mojito drink mix, which added a fun pop of color as well as another personal touch to this already thoughtful and useful offsite trip welcome gift. 


Aloha Themed Gifts for Cisco on the Big Island

Cisco wanted thematic gift baskets to capture all the sun, fun and ‘aloha’ spirit Hawaii has to offer as a welcome gift to greet and honor their top-achieving sales members. We had some fun designing these beach gift sets with a pop of color! 

We wanted to capture the iconic patterns and colors of the islands, and when we found retro, yet colorful Hawaiian postcards, we knew they’d be the perfect anchor to the gift basket’s design aesthetic. 

Everything inside kept with the gift’s colorful retro Hawaiian theme including a mango and papaya luxury candle, soap scented like passionfruit, dried pineapple slices, macadamia nuts, and even a Hawaiian-sourced chocolate bar that matched perfectly with the retro-esque packaging. 

Fun in the Sun Employee Gifts for Ashfield Health

Ashfield Health took it to the beach for their custom and colorful employee appreciation gifts! Thanking their employees with a little bit of play and a whole lot of sunshine with the goal of the ultimate beach day gift sets.

These fun in the sun-themed gift boxes were a white color palette with bright pops of color in blue and green. Each custom beach gift box came packed with a mini-travel fan, wet-dry towel, sunblock spray, pina-colada gummy bears, and spiked beverages for two - the perfect beach day gift bundle that we know showed employees how much they are appreciated. 


Put your out-of-office notification on because it is summertime, and everyone could use a day at the beach. Appreciate and thank your employees, customers, clients, and referrals with our custom designed beach day inspired gift sets so they can truly enjoy a day off relaxing in the sand and listening to the ocean waves. 

Speaking of travel, if you’re searching for location-inspired corporate gift ideas and sand and sun is not your thing, discover more custom corporate gift design ideas including Las Vegas Themed Corporate Event Gifts for Coca-Cola and Unisex Gift Crates for a Corporate Retreat in Montana.

Happy beach day gifting!
