The clock is ticking down to the holidays, have you already completed your Christmas list? Or are you more of a last minute shopper? Either way, we’ve got you covered with our exclusive gift guide for a CEO who has it all. 

What Makes the Best Gifts for CEOs?

If you are an employee, it’s important to make sure that you understand the gift giving guidelines for your organization. You should take a look at the company policies around gift giving and gift ideas. There could be some restrictions which prohibit certain gifts such as cash, alcohol or anything that could be seen as inappropriate for the workplace. 

Just like giving a gift to anyone else, you should cater the gift towards the CEO’s interests and personality, or take some time to review any past gifts other coworkers have given them for other occasions. 

If you’re still stuck on what to get, you could consider getting a combined gift with your other coworkers. This can help you save money, still appears thoughtful and you can avoid any awkward situations if you give a gift that misses the ballpark. 

The Best Gift Ideas for CEOs

Giving a gift to a CEO will show that you respect and care for them, and it can also make a great impression and potentially enhance theirs and others’ opinion of you in the workplace. Whether your CEO has a sweet tooth, or they value experiences, there is something on this holiday guide for every type of CEO. 

A Loews Hotel Gift Card for the Go-Getter

This is the perfect gift for the CEO on the move. You can give the gift of the Loews hotel experience from Minneapolis to South Beach and beyond. The flexibility of the gift card means that the receiver will be able to use it however and whenever they want. Whether it’s to attend an important business conference, or if they want to spend some quality family time together on a getaway vacation. They can do it all thanks to Loews. 

Holiday Clothing from Vineyard Vines

Vineyard Vines has your gifting needs covered for the holidays. They offer a huge selection of holiday-themed clothing, from matching festive sweaters, to cozy winter hats and even resort ready wear if your CEO flies South for the winter. They have clothing for men, women and children and even tons of stocking stuffers, so you can’t go wrong this holiday season. 

A Madison Square Garden Sports Stock

Who knew you could gift stocks? This is the perfect gift for a CEO who is savvy in investing, or for CEOs who are sports fans, especially the New York Knicks. You can even get the stock certificate customized in its very own shareholder kit, and gift wrapped, to make it even more special to the person receiving it. 

A Donation to Novartis to Help Those in Need

If the CEO you are gifting is more of a philanthropist, then donating to a great cause in their name is a meaningful gift and gesture. Novartis accepts donations to “address access gaps for neglected and infectious diseases (such as leprosy) and people at the bottom of the pyramid.” They also have a unique global initiative which aims to “connect those living with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and caregivers to effective treatments, professional medical capabilities, trained physicians and hands-on support.” 

An Audible Subscription for Book Lovers

If you know a CEO who always has their nose in the latest books on business, marketing, finance, or anything else, gifting an Audible subscription could be an awesome gift for them. Even if you know that they already have an Audible subscription, giving them a membership will just add onto their existing one. Audible is great for those CEOs who are always on the run, travelling from meeting to meeting, since it allows them to jump right back into what they were reading right on their smartphone or other electronic device so they can pick up where they left off without missing a beat. 

Leather Goods from Fossil

Do you know a CEO who is obsessed with fine leather goods? Fossil is a great place to pick up a new wallet, watch or stylish leather purse that can stand the test of time and look great while doing it. They even offer free embossing and engraving, so you can make things personal and take your gift giving to the next level.
