Corporate gift giving can be complicated, particularly when you have European prospects and customers. Not only do you need to contend with local gift-giving laws, but there are often cultural customs around sending itself.
For example, it’s considered bad luck to give an expectant parent a gift in Germany. No matter how good your intentions are, you need to make sure you don’t accidentally offend anyone.
In general, sending gifts can help you build stronger, more authentic relationships with prospects and customers no matter where you—or they—are. Sendoso makes it easier with an extensive marketplace of gifts to help you connect with your audience. You can send directly to prospects through vendors in Europe. And because your gifts originate in Europe, they can reach recipients in a timely manner without any customs and duty issues.
Here are some of the best gifts to give prospects and customers in the EU and the UK, courtesy of our vendor partners. From vegan matcha donuts to bucket list experiences, we’ve rounded up the best sends to surprise and delight!
Foodies with a sweet tooth
From indulgent chocolates to mouth-watering pâtisseries, something sweet is always a popular gift. For recipients with a sweet tooth, choose from a wide selection of delicious treats and desserts. We even have vegan options, so there’s something for everyone.

Thrill-seeking adventures and experiences
Poet Maya Angelou has a famous quote:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
That’s why it’s sometimes better to give memorable and exciting experiences than physical gifts. These gifts are perfect if your customers or prospects want a little excitement and adventure in their lives.
