Sustainable Christmas Gifts for Employees

S’wheat sustainable reusable water bottle in oat colour as a christmas gift

Once again, it's that time of year when you curl up in bed and the holiday season begins. The cold weather has set in and Christmas is nearly upon us. Christmas is a fantastic time for celebration, eating delicious dishes and giving and receiving sustainable gifts from our loved ones to show our appreciation and affection.

However, Christmas cheer is not just for our families to enjoy at home. It is also a time to spread the same happiness with our friends and colleagues at work and show them that you appreciate all of the hard work they have put in over the past year with a sustainable employee gift.

Perhaps you are a business owner or in charge of supervising a talented crew?  In that case, the Christmas period is the ideal occasion to show your appreciation for your co-workers and employees and boost morale for the new year ahead with some planet friendly employee gifts. 

This also works incredibly well as a marketing strategy when looking to onboard new customers and clients, or congratulate someone on a new job.  We all know that in 2022, our corporate gifts should be eco-friendly for employees and clients as we are aware that customers and clients expect businesses to be socially responsible. But how can you save money on your Christmas gifts and contribute to the preservation of the environment at the same time, whilst business budgets get smaller? Take a look at our suggestion for an employee gift, that not only gifts your staff but gifts the planet too.

The S’wheat bottle is a fantastic, cost-efficient Christmas employee gift. The S’wheat bottle, made from waste wheat and bamboo collected from farmers, is available for corporate branding to allow you engrave or colour print any logo, design, or message onto your employee gift, providing beautifully branded gifts that promote your company and help protect the earth from climate change. You can choose from our four classic colours, or pantone match your brand colour and create your very own unique bottle! Plus, the S’wheat bottle is suitable for both hot and cold drinks making it very versatile to suit all of your employees’ preferences, and it is perfect for hot chocolate or mulled wine on the go!

But what makes S’wheat so sustainable? For every bottle sold, S’wheat will plant a trackable native tree in your company name. This means that every employee not only receives a slick, lightweight reusable bottle, but they also receive their very own tree that they can track over a lifetime. Your employee or co-worker can scan the QR code that comes with their bottle to find out cool statistics such as where in the world it has been planted and its species. S’wheat also uses a percentage of its profits to protect wildlife and remove plastic pollution from the ocean, keeping our penguins and polar bears safe for Christmas. 

S'wheat can also help your company become more sustainable as a whole through their S’wheat bottle. Not only will your staff have a sustainable Christmas gift, and your company gain free promotion through co-branding, but S’wheat can also help your business reduce and offset carbon emissions to help you achieve your net zero goals. S’wheat will work with you to reduce Co2 and keep our future Christmases safe for generations to come.

The S’wheat bottle is sustainable, but what features does it have? The S’wheat bottle was designed to be lightweight, durable, and easy to use. The bottle itself only weighs 250 grams, to put that into perspective, that is only 1/16th of the weight of a typical steel bottle! The S’wheat bottle also comes with a carry clip, making it easy to clip onto your bag or belt without weighing you down on those winter walks. The S’wheat bottle was specifically designed to be easy to clean, there is nothing worse than having a reusable water bottle that isn’t reusable because you can’t get in to clean it out! The top of the S’wheat bottle completely screws off to allow you to fully clean inside the bottle, plus the S’wheat material is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-odour. As mentioned previously, the S’wheat bottle is suitable for both hot and cold drinks and has a 550 ml capacity. Our push-lock lid makes one handed drinking easy and no screw top means you don’t have to take off your gloves to get a good grip of the cap! Your unique bottle will last a lifetime as long as it is looked after, however if it is time to say goodbye to your S’wheat bottle, it will naturally biodegrade in 12-18 months in an industrial composting facility so your mind can stay at peace knowing your bottle won't pop back up in our ice caps in years to come. 

But if it has all of these features, is it budget friendly? The S’wheat bottle retails for 25 pounds, but if you choose to co-brand for your staff gifts, we offer a very generous discount. Starting at a minimum order of 50 units, S’wheat has made employee sustainable gifting accessible to businesses of all sizes. S’wheat aims to help as many companies as possible make the transition to a sustainable work lifestyle, this includes offering the S’wheat bottle corporate branding at fair prices, keeping your finance department just as happy with your choice of employee Christmas gift. 

If you are looking for an extra wow this Christmas, our recycled packaging is also fully customisable, allowing you to display any kind of Christmas celebrations you have in mind. Alongside this, you can also include a personal message to your co-workers and employees to really let them know that you appreciate everything they have done and all their hard work. To keep your message sustainable, this can be written on seed paper, so your message can biodegrade or be planted, leaving behind only great memories from happy staff and clients. 

So this Christmas when looking for the perfect sustainable employee gift, give your staff a gift that will not only last a lifetime, but will also plant a lasting future for your company.
