Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Meaningful Year-End Recognition

Choose tangible rewards for wellness, travel, home, and more

Though most of us are busy finalizing Thanksgiving plans, it seems holiday gifting is already in full swing. U.S. retail sales saw an unexpected bump in October, likely driven by eager shoppers hoping to beat inflation and supply chain snarls. And they’re on to something – with just a few weeks left in the year, this is the sweet spot to make your selections, place your orders, and ensure on-time delivery to your recipients.

Whether it’s tangible rewards for hardworking employees or incentive gifts for customers, show your gratitude by getting ahead of the holiday rush. If you’re not sure where to start, fear not – our catalog includes several covetable gifts across a range of categories, sure to delight everyone on your list.

State-of-the-art tech incentives

Help recipients optimize their lives at home, in the office, and on the road. Bose’s QuietComfort® Earbuds II and QuietComfort® 45 Headphones offer unrivaled noise cancellation technology and all-day comfort. The Sport Earbuds soundtrack sweat sessions indoors and out while the durable SoundLink Micro Bluetooth® Speaker brings big sound to any adventure. And at home, the Smart Soundbar 900 transforms the family room into the ultimate theater. No matter the place or the interest, these top tech incentives have you covered.

Wellness gifts for a fresh start

For those hoping to jumpstart their 2023 wellness resolutions, Hyperice’s innovative wellness gifts are the way to go.
