Last minute branded corporate gifts for Christmas 2022

You might be surprised that we are talking about last minute merchandise for Christmas 2022, when it’s only October. 

It’s snow joke though (sorry) – the festive season is one of the busiest times of year for promotional merchandise, and there isn’t long left at all if ‘order Christmas gifts’ is still on your to do list. 

To help with inspiration and ideas that you can still order in time for Christmas, then read on – but be quick, as the clock is well and truly counting down! 


Buying British 

When time is tight, British made products are a great way to go as transportation time (and the associated challenges of customs and duty) are significantly reduced (zero Air Miles here).  Another big benefit of buying British is the low minimum order quantities – and, of course, it all helps support the UK economy.   

Here’s a few ideas to get you started: 

UK made/ eco umbrellas


Whatever the season, the one predictable thing about the British weather is its unpredictability, so why not keep your customers covered with a branded umbrella.  It’s a great way to spread your message and with a wide range of sizes, styles and options, this a useful gift that can help brighten up the dullest of days.  If you want to tick the eco-box too, there are also umbrellas available using fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. 

uk made/ eco notebooks, journals, sticky notes and pads


From notebooks and journals to pads and post-it notes, stationery is always a popular choice for a useful gift.  Whether you are looking for budget, luxury or eco options, our network of British made suppliers means that you’ll still be able to tick the box in time for Christmas. 

UK made/ eco wellbeing essentials


If you want to spread some Christmas calm, then how about a natural wax scented candle in a tin (fragrances include a festive spice) with your branding or messaging on the label.  The same natural wellness range also includes branded bath salts, lip balms, sleep sprays or more.  And for an extra festive touch, it can even be packed in a cracker. 

UK made/ eco drinkware


There’s still time to order branded drinkware too.  With British made sports bottles, protein shakers, thermal cups or traditional ceramic mugs, there’s plenty to choose from to keep your customers hydrated and your brand to hand. 

Remember though, don’t rest on your laurels, as our British suppliers are also incredibly busy at this time of year. 

Mix and match 

Another solution for short lead times is to mix and match.   

Tech gifts


Why not create your own ‘thank you’ pack or bespoke hamper, by choosing items from the list above or opting for some branded staples that are usually in stock items with a quick turnaround.  Think tech type gadgets, like power banks or wireless chargers, then mix and match them with sweet treats or food items.


Sweet treats hampers

There are plenty of tasty British made choices here too, from cupcakes, gingerbread men, biscuits or cake jars to chocolates, mallow mountains, truffles, popcorn or bonbons.  Or why not pair a festive hot chocolate cube with a branded mug or thermal cup.

The other option is to mix personalised or branded merchandise with your clients’ favourite foodstuffs from the high street – or even add a gift card for a favourite store, restaurant or online service. 

The icing on the (Christmas) cake 

Whilst Christmas is super busy in the world of promotional products, it’s often a busy time for marketeers too, and you might well be juggling jobs to meet your own deadlines.  Luckily, M&M can help here too.   

Think of our fulfilment service as the gift of a helping hand.  Once we have sourced and branded your gifts, we can also handle the distribution too, saving you time and resource.  Just let us know the who, were and when (all via a secure server) and we will wrap, pack and ship everything.  So you won’t need to worry about fitting down all those chimneys.
