Best Tech Gifts for Holiday Gifting on a Budget

Holiday shopping tends to be a stressful activity, so when you have to shop for your corporate clients on top of your personal shopping list, you might really be feeling the holiday pain.

Well, good news for you is that Newport Promotions is here to ease the pressure, at least when it comes to your gift shopping for VIP clients or employees. I’ve put together this list of tech gifts that anyone will find useful, and they won’t break the bank. The cost of these items range from $2 - $19. Win, win!

Mobile Phone Car Mount

Being your own navigator is tough, but this mobile phone car mount is making being hands-free that much easier. With our mobile car mount that directly clips on to the car’s air vents you can easily keep your phone or other mobile device within view for glancing at the navigation screen. It’s also a great way to keep your phone from slipping off your lap during those quick conference calls clients on the go are always taking. With imprint space on the side clip, the gift recipient will see your company logo every time they glance at their phone.


Cell Phone MobiGrip

Anyone with a smartphone (so essentially, everyone) will love this gift! Think of the MobiGrip as the safety belt for high-tech toys that keeps anyone from saying “I dropped my phone” when asked how their screen shattered in to a million little pieces. The way MobiGrip works is it sticks directly to the back of your phone and the bungee wraps around your finger to secure the phone to your hand. Easy, effective and budget-friendly. This item has a nice space for your logo and is under $2!

USB Charging Hub

There are two things every professional never has enough of: time and power outlets! With the USB charging hub you can solve both of those shortages since this hub can supply power to four devices at once. The other thing that makes this budget-friendly gift a winner? Long gone is the huge chaotic mess of power cords! That alone will make your clients love you.

Stereo Headphones

If you’re looking for a gift that’s a little more high-end without completely busting your budget, these stereo headphones could be the perfect fit. With a light-weight and cushioned headband with soft ear cups and compact tri-fold design, these headphones are ideal for comfortable plane travel or music listening while at work. Your logo prints across the headband.

These aren’t the only budget-friendly gifts you can choose from, there’s plenty more to browse through, so check out some other posts you may like below. And if you need more help with finding the perfect holiday gift, please give me a call at 847-398-5500 or shoot me an email at

Top Tech Holiday Gifts for Your Top Corporate Clients

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s never to soon to start getting ideas for what to give your top clients before the end of the year. And if there’s any advice I can give with holiday gifts that are sure to impress, it’s that it is hard to go wrong with high-tech.

Now, I know that if you’re going to spend a larger chunk of the budget on a nice corporate gift, you want it to hit a few main points including nice packaging, usefulness and the perfect branded touch. Lucky for you, Newport Promotions has quite a few gifts for tech lovers that fit the bill.

Here’s my round-up of favorite tech-oriented holiday gifts for corporate clients:

Smart Touch Gloves

Your clients won’t have any problem staying connected in the cold with these smart touch gloves! Unlike other smart touch gloves that don’t adequately keep your fingers warm, or are more glitchy than they are helpful, these gloves feature a soft, stretchy interior and silicone grip on palm and fingers, as well as have conductive metallic threads on both the index finger and thumb to aid in the pinpoint performance of the glove. You clients will love still being able to text or take photos with their smart phones when they are out in the cold.

Portable Boom Speaker

Whether your clients are partying people, or they need their video to be heard in a crowded conference room during a presentation, our portable boom speaker is perfect for turning up the volume! Not only does this speaker easily stick to any smooth or flat surface, it also has a suction mechanism to safely hold the mobile phone or tablet. too.

Car Charger Gift Set

For corporate clients who are constantly traveling, attending trade shows, conferences and other events that keep them busy all day long, they’ll love you for giving them this car charger gift set. They will never be without battery power again! The car charger has dual ports and a LED ring that helps illuminate your imprinted logo area in the dark. The best part about this gift is it isn’t just for charging in your car, you can also charge up the emergency mobile device battery/charger that stores power. Then when you are away from the car, you can access the stored battery life to power up your device anywhere.


Bluetooth Fitness Watch

You know everyone’s going to start working on their fitness goals as soon as the holidays are over, so why not give them a leg up with a sleek Bluetooth fitness watch? Not only does this make for a thoughtful client gift, but it’s also a fabulous Holiday gift to give to your own team members as a way to promote health and wellness in the workplace! All the user needs to do is simply download the free "BodySensor" app to track daily steps, calories, sleep, and much more. The watch comes in 5 different colors and you can imprint your logo on the band. 


The Harmony Speaker

If you love the idea of the speaker, but want something a tad more compact than the Boom Speaker mentioned above, the Harmony Speaker is what you’re looking for. Perfect for car travelers, the Harmony Speaker is compatible with most cellphones and mp3 players and doesn’t require a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection. It also comes with a mini car charger and a silicone phone and tablet stand. It offers a nice large imprint area for your brand or marketing message.

4-in-1 Charging Buddy

You already know how difficult it can be to keep your phone charged while on the go, but imagine if you had a phone, tablet, camera and computer. That’s a lot to keep charged! This 4-in-1 charging buddy saves time and space, which are both valuable commodities for any of your clients, which is why this is a great gift to give during the hectic holiday season.

Eco-Friendly Bamboo Business Gifts that are Perfect for the Holiday Season

It’s never too early to start thinking about impressive gifts for your corporate clients this Holiday season, and it’s always a good time to be in an eco-friendly state of mind.

Enter our bamboo promotional items that are the perfect solution for finding a high-quality gift that your valued clients or employees will love but that is also friendly to our planet. Here is a list of my favorite gifts that you'll feel good about giving.

Cocktail Shaker Set

Rather than the predictable gift of a bottle of wine, give your corporate clients something a little more top shelf and unique. This stainless steel cocktail gift set includes a cocktail shaker, strainer, stirrer, ice tongs, and a shot glass, which all rest in a beautiful bamboo stand that looks great in any environment and ready for any impromptu moments that call for a toast.


Bamboo Desktop Calendar

For corporate clients who have a welcoming front desk or waiting room, gift them this bamboo desktop calendar so guests will never have to ask what date or day it is. This perpetual calendar serves as a nice desk accessory, it’ll also save your recipient from buying a new calendar year after year - while your logo stays visible.

Bamboo Picture Frame

Whether it’s a picture of their team at this past year’s company picnic or a picture of their kiddos, our 5”x7” bamboo gives your clients the perfect way to display their memories in an artful and eco-friendly way. The best part about this sophisticated gift is that it looks anything but budget-friendly, even though it is!


Bamboo Cheese Server Set

We don’t know about you, but cheese is the way to our hearts, and we bet it is for your clients, too. Give them something gorgeous to serve their favorite cheese varieties on with our cheese server set, which includes a stainless steel cheese knife, cracker dish and eco-friendly bamboo cutting board. Gift alongside a cheese sampler and a nice bottle of wine and you’ll shoot to super star status in your client’s eyes.

Bamboo Cutting Board

If you want a gift that’s slightly more general than a cheese serving set, but still caters to your foodie clients, this bamboo cutting board is the ideal gift to bring to the table. This is also a great piece to bring to wine and cheese events, bar/liquor promotions, or real estate promotion for your own company. (This is a great gift for real estate agents to give their clients after they move into their new home.)

Bamboo Smart Phone Holder

Bring an earthy feel to a tech-heavy office space with our bamboo tech holder that conveniently fits a variety of iPads, tablets and smartphones. This tech holder keeps your device at the perfect angle for working, gaming and viewing, and it makes for a great employee gift, incentive, or corporate gift.
