It can be hard trying to find a great gift for your client or colleague that makes the right statement. A gift basket might not seem like a great option, or maybe you want to give something more unique and special. The best gift is sometimes a donation of some kind that makes a difference in someone’s life. These kinds of gifts are heartfelt and it’s a situation where everyone wins. Here are five corporate gifts that make a difference.
A Flock of Chicks
Instead of a gift basket, consider donating a flock of chicks to those in need through Heifer International. With just $20, you can donate a flock of chicks in your client or colleagues name. In return, they’ll receive an honor card, thanking them for their donation. These little chicks will offer a family a lifetime of food for just $20. Donations of rabbits and honeybees are also available. If you want to donate something else, Heifer offers a list of other things to support including sustainable farming, empowering women, and basic needs.
Grass-Fed Gift Basket
If you’re looking to buy something and donate in the process, Steve’s Paleo Goods has you covered. This website offers a list of gift baskets that donate a percentage of the proceeds. One of the site’s top sellers is a Grass-Fed Gift Basket that costs $44.95. 15% of the purchase supports Steve’s Club National Program. This program provides fitness to at-risk and inner city youth through CcrossFit. The website also has a large gift basket for $49.95 and an extra large option for $69.95. Buy the gift baskets at stevespaleogoods.com.
MiiR Water Bottle
MiiR is a fantastic company that sells high-quality water bottles, but that’s not all. With every purchase, MiiR donates its proceeds to provide clean water to someone in need for an entire year. A 27-ounce water bottle costs $25 and comes in several different colors. Your colleagues and clients will love the simple design. One last feature MiiR offers is the ability to input a code and track the impact you’ve made. Purchase these products online at miir.com.
Wishes for Warriors Bottle Breacher
Bottle Breacher has been featured on Shark Tank and is a great product for any client or colleague. The Wishes for Warriors Bottle Breacher is a bottle opener made from a 50 caliber bullet.

Along with the Bottle Breacher, this model comes with a special box with the Wishes for Warrior logo. It can be found online at bottlebreacher.com for $27. There is also an option to engrave the bullet for $7 with the name of a company or your client's name.
Keurig and Laughing Man’s Coffee Blends
This option is great for clients or colleagues that love coffee. Laughing Man is a foundation created by Hugh Jackman.
