16 Holiday Gift Ideas for Your Employees and Special Clients—2022 Edition!

First, let’s get one thing clear: If you can manage it financially, there’s no better employee gift than a cash bonus, especially in this economic climate. But failing that—or maybe in addition to a holiday check?—thoughtful gifts are always a good idea. And you don’t need to spend a lot to gift your employees beautifully.


This year, it’s probably also a good idea to let your best clients know how much you value their business. A sweet show of gratitude that acknowledges the thing you share—a love of  jewelry—will ensure you and your store or business are remembered fondly in 2023 and beyond.


With these recipients in mind, we put together our second annual Holiday Gift Guide (see 2021’s guide here) with ideas that deliver the perfect mix of sparkle and joy, surprise, and delight. And not that anyone asked, but we’re happy to take one of each. Happy holidays, jewelry pros!


Charmed Coasters, $45 (for set of 4)

This gift is just the thing for your most passionate collector or a staffer who is loving the talismans trend (and selling it at an impressive rate). Julers Row



Anna New York Amethyst Whiskey Cubes, $145 (set of 6)

A libation of any kind will be in order when the holiday rush is through, and these genuine gemstone cubes will cool a nip of whisky—without watering it down. Cheers! Bergdorf Goodman


 Gilt Agate Personalized Stationery, $70 (set of 25)

The occasional handwritten note is an essential clienteling tool. Customized with the staffer’s name, these pack an extra-polished punch. Minted


Geode State Ornaments, $18 each

They’re not actual geode slices but the use of stoneware, glass, and colored glazes creates a close approximation; meanwhile, the state shapes have one-size-fits-all appeal (if you order one for every team member), yet still feel personal. Uncommon Goods


 Glam Rocks Collection Box, $18.46

Peppermints are a necessity for any client-facing jewelry industry job and this gift assortment includes four tins, each decorated with a colorfully swirling agate design. Motif


Jewelry Box Coloring Book, $11.39

Perfect for your creative team, the intricately detailed illustrations by Swedish artist Hanna Karlzon contained within offer the perfect escape from a hectic workday. amazon.com



Dries Van Noten Malachite Snake Lipstick Case, $38

Made by the cooler-than-cool Belgian fashion designer, this glamorous objet vertu will elevate the contents of their purse or desk drawer to an unimaginable level of chic. Saks Fifth Avenue



Candy Class Short Candlesticks, $135 (set of 2)

If you’ve been following jewelry brand The Last Line’s recent forays into home décor your wish list in that category is probably miles long. One idea your associates will love: These candle holders, which are detailed with hand-painted gold accents for a hint of festive glamour. The Last Line


Newport Salt & Pepper Set, $85

Like jewelry for your table, these beauties call to mind any number of baubles detailed with colorful enamel or inlay. The hexagonal shape is also perfectly on-trend! Jonathan Adler



Pomme Vase/Candleholder, $52

This elegant vessel can hold a petite bouquet or serve a base for tealight candles. It comes from a heritage-metal accessories brand founded in the early 1600s that is also a purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden. Posh! Skultana



Kintsugi Collection Sampaguita Candle, $75

Fans of the jewelry line, Milamore, will appreciate the unique aesthetics—and delicate notes of Arabian Jasmine—of this scented candle housed in a Kintsugi-inspired porcelain jar that can later be repurposed as a stylish storage solution. Milamore



Heidi Bishop x Loquet London Love Bowl, $125

A gold-edged trinket tray for stashing jewelry (or little desk knick-knacks) combines the aesthetics of a ceramic artist and a well-known British brand that specializes in charm jewelry. Loquet London


Sky Water Bottle, $69

No worries if this practical gift, a vision in stainless steel and leather, gets accidentally left on the counter, but its good looks may make customers thirsty for one of their own. Georg Jensen



Gold DP Hair Pin, $99

This gorgeously simple, jewelry-adjacent accessory instantly adds polish to messy buns and updos. It’s also a lovely way to indulge a special client or VIP with something they probably don’t have or wouldn’t think to purchase for themselves. Deborah Pagani


Lucky Streak Necklace, $34

Wish them lots of luck for the new year with this charmer featuring a real four-leaf clover. Technically it’s from a kids’ jewelry line but we’re calling it adult-appropriate, especially when layered with genuine gold chains. Super Smalls
