Perhaps you saw us post our top 10 wedding welcome gifts of 2016. Well, today it's time to share our top 10 favorite corporate and client gift designs of 2016!

 

White House Correspondents Dinner 

It was an incredible honor to be asked to design custom welcome gifts for several guests of the White House Correspondents Dinner at the Mayflower Hotel. Perhaps you recall us sharing these with you back in August. We used open white crates with a leather-bound journal, artisan chocolates, a White House pen, bubbly, cookies in the shape of the US Capitol dome by Fresh Bakes, custom welcome letter and floral bouquets from Urban Stems. Calligraphy and paper design by Just Write Studios.

Eastern Shore Wedding Planner Gift Boxes

We are still head over heels for these custom welcome gifts designed for Easton, Maryland-based Kari Rider Events. The modern white hat boxes, grey pashminas, bubbly, artisan chocolates and custom paper perfectly expressed her branding.

DC Wedding Photographer Client Welcome Boxes

DC-area wedding photographer Abby Grace's favorite cocktail is the French 75 so naturally we created a cocktail-in-a-box for her couples to serve as a welcome gift. In addition to all of the ingredients needed to create the drink, we also included custom recipe cards with instructions along with branded notecards for a special personalized message to be included to each couple. They were finished off with a gift tag and Abby Grace Photography's welcome booklet.

Calligraphy & Engraving Business Rebranding Launch Gifts

When husband and wife team Jenny and Rick Muffler of Just Write Studios decided to rebrand in mid-2016, they wanted to send out gifts to announce their new brand to various vendors and wedding planners they currently work with and even ones they wanted to work with in the future. We incorporated their calligraphy on a hard-back journals reading "write you own story", gift tags reading "change is in the air, introducing the all new..." for the outside of each box, and a custom cookie reading "because for us, it all started with calligraphy." (The messaging on the cookie was inspired by the fact that Jenny and Rick actually met at a calligraphy conference. Cute, right?) For a celebratory feel, we included a bottle of bubbly, chocolate covered oreos from Buttercream Bakeshop in the same marble pattern found in their new branding, and a gold pen to accompany the journal.

The Bump Bloggers Luncheon Gift Baskets

When The Knot's sister company The Bump was hosting a luncheon for mom bloggers, they wanted spa-inspired welcome gifts to pamper each guest. We designed small gift baskets with a custom logo cookie, electronic wipes, bath salts and artisan lip balm. We also added mini succulents for a fresh finishing touch!

Destination Wedding Planner Gift Boxes

Wedding planner Claire Duran of Claire Duran Weddings and Events wanted to include her favorite Dominican coffee in her client gifts and we made that happen, then designed the rest of the gift boxes around this main concept. We included coffee cups, a tea towel, gourmet nuts for snacking and a logo cookie! Logo and tags by Little Cat Creative.

San Francisco Corporate Retreat Gift Crates

We worked with event planning firm 23 Layers on these custom corporate retreat gifts for an event at Cavallo Point in San Francisco. Artisan caramels, gourmet cookies, snack mix and elderflower pressé beverages were included to keep the attendees fed and hydrated. We also added straws and air plants for an added touch of detail!

Corporate Holiday Gift Boxes

We loved creating these custom holiday gift boxes for MOJO PSG clients just this past December! The goal was to achieve a modern, yet hand crafted, feel. We used pine boxes, black and gold holiday candles, small batch bourbon, artisan chocolates, gourmet cookies and charger roll-ups! They were finished off with red ribbon in MOJO's primary branding color and the "Happy Holidays" gift tags featured the same font used throughout their website and marketing pieces.

Maryland Wedding Planner Client Gift Boxes

For these custom welcome gift boxes for Adriana Marie Events, we used monochromatic colors to highlight her brand's color palette and soft, yet modern, aesthetic. The gifts were both useful and fun with handcrafted journals and coordinating Le Pen, custom logo cookies and Sugarfina malt balls. We finished them off with simple "enjoy" gift tags, again, in Adriana's branding colors.

DC Wedding Photographer Client Gifts

You guys went nuts on social media over these custom welcome boxes were created for DC wedding photographer Anny Photography! We included botanical print journals, modern logo cookies, artisan candles and a small vial of bath salts. We finished them off with grey gift tags with white ink as a nod to the grey in her branding. And of course, blush ribbon!

Corporate Holiday Gift Crates

For commercial real estate firm JLL's holiday client gifts, we opted to start with large gift crates in a cherry stain. We included lots of DC-inspired items such as artisan chocolates featuring DC monuments, Compass coffee, District Vodka, US Capitol cookies, cherry blossom cookies and even a set of cedar coasters featuring various DC neighborhoods. We finished them off with "Happy Holidays" tags featuring the JLL logo.
