Another year has zoomed by, filled up with deadlines and busy schedules- and if you look at the calendar, we’re nearing the end of another year! This means it’s time for year-end parties, secret-Santa gift exchanges, year-end bonuses and of course, corporate gifts.
Corporate gifting can be a tough terrain to navigate, but which can be critical for strengthening and maintaining business relationships. The wrong gift will quickly be forgotten, while the right gift can be a useful tool. Here are our top tips for choosing corporate gifts that will be well-received and send the right message.
Know your client
Corporate gifts are more impactful if they have been chosen with the recipient in mind. The better you know your client, the easier it will be to select a suitable gift. Avoid generic or unoriginal presents that will likely be discarded quickly.
Personalised, that is. Adding a handwritten note or engraved item makes a lasting impression. Add detail to your chosen gift by including your company’s logo and the details of the recipient. This little bit of extra attention demonstrates to clients that you have put thought and attention into their present.
Quality is key
Business gifts reflect the image and reputation of your company, and the quality of the gifts you send can affect this image. Lower quality gifts can damage your image while good-quality gifts will sustain or elevate it.
Don’t settle for a boring, run-of-the-mill gift but think out of the box! Clients are more likely to enjoy and remember gifts if they are something out of the ordinary.
Creative corporate gift ideas:
- Gourmet picnic hampers
- Wine set
- Succulent garden
- Portable power bank
- Coffee table book
- Bakery delivery
Don’t forget about delivery
Finally, once you’ve selected your gift, be sure to deliver it in-person. This will show that you have invested time and effort into the gift, and give you a chance to connect and build relationships with the intended recipient.
