Our Top Holiday Gift Picks for 2022
Holiday gifts are a great way to reward your hard-working team or show appreciation for loyal clients and customers, plus they increase exposure to your brand. Before you get “scrooged” by supply chain issues, get a head start by ordering custom apparel early. We asked our experts to tell us what their favorite products are and why they think they’re perfect for holiday gifting season.
Bella + Canvas Ultra Soft Pullover Hoodie
Hoodies are a classic! The hoodie accommodates all shapes, sizes, and genders and can be sported all year long. The Bella + Canvas Ultra Soft Pullover Hoodie is an especially popular pick.
“This product is very soft and comfortable,” Sales Representative Dave Nix says. “I particularly love the different color options available for this product.” Dave also loves that he’s washed it many times, and it maintained its look, shape, and feel. Aside from being long-lasting and comfy, it’s also versatile. “Did I mention that its fabric is buttery soft and just looks cool?” Arlie Yruma, Merchandise Development Manager, says. “It’s a great breathable fabric, and you will feel put together and cozy all at the same time in this hoodie—it’s one of my go-to products!” Customers have also mentioned that their teams feel so comfortable in this breathable, cozy fabric.
JBL Clip 4 Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
The JBL Clip 4 Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker is a fun and unexpected gift for team members or clients. “Tech accessories are a fast-growing category at Custom Ink! In 2022 we have seen a growing trend with speakers and audio products,” says Staci Jasso, Merchandise Activation Manager of Product Training. “It’s important for Custom Ink to have a quality brand assortment that customers know and trust, and JBL fits the bill.” This is another product that can be used throughout the year and reiterates appreciation for your team and clients alike.
MiiR Laser Engraved 23 oz. Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle
Sometimes the best gift is both stylish and functional like the MiiR Laser Engraved 23 oz. Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle. MiiR products have a sleek look and a high-quality feel, and the MiiR Thermo 3D™ Double Wall Vacuum Insulation Technology keeps drinks cold or hot without sweating or being hot to the touch. Try laser engraving to take your gift to the next level! “The laser engraving decoration is upscale—it makes your logo shine,” says Merrill Calotta, Merchandise Activation Manager of Customer Insights. For companies with teams and clients who like to give back, every MiiR product sold helps fund transparent giving projects to nonprofit organizations whose work empowers communities while benefiting the health of their natural environments.
Columbia Sweater Weather Fleece Jacket
Another great cold-weather option is the Columbia Sweater Weather Fleece Jacket. “This is a must-have closet staple,” says Arlie Yruma. “It’s a great neutral mid-layer that keeps you looking polished and ready for any occasion the day brings.” One of our Key Account Managers, Rebecca Coelho, also loves the “bells and whistles” the brand consistently offers. Impress your team and clients with this versatile and practical jacket from a loved and respected brand.
The North Face Fall Line Backpack
The North Face continues to be a fan favorite! The North Face’s Fall Line Backpack is a high-quality and versatile gift that can be used for work or play. “The Fall Line Backpack can easily transition from a work or school bag to a weekend accessory,” says Ann Carney, Merchandise Development Manager. “It’s designed with exceptional features for comfort and organization.”

Stay warm and stylish with the Carhartt Watch Beanie 2.0. Jason Glenn, Merchandise Development Planning Manager, loves these beanies.
