A Brief Guide to Corporate Gifts Giving

promo-products

Offering corporate gifts to your employees, business partners, or loyal and prospective customers has turned into a long standing tradition for numerous businesses, regardless of their size or industry. And the big advantage is that corporate gifts can practically be rewarded any time of the year, not only during the holiday season or on other special occasions. Gift giving has become a wonderful way to thank all those people who help shape a company and significantly contribute to its overall success. By doing so, a business recognizes and rewards everything that clients, employees, and business partners have continuously put into the company month after month, year after year. Our company is proud to offer a great selection of custom corporate giveaways that will allow your business to brand great products to offer to all your valued customers, employees, and business partners.

Why going beyond simply saying ‘Thank You’ is a great idea

A simple giveaway to show your sincere appreciation towards your employees can make the difference between a person who simply tries to get the job done and a person who does everything in his or her power to embrace your corporate values, exceed the established goals, and continuously strive to improve. By acknowledging the employee effort and achievement, you will be able to increase productivity and improve the way your employees perceive and value the company they have been working for.

Most companies offer giveaways to their best clients for many similar reasons. When a company decides to go beyond its regular service standards and show clients how valuable they actually are to the company, the relationship between the business and the customer is considerably reinforced. By doing so, your clients are reminded the exact reasons why they have chosen your business instead of any another provider in their area.

Below you can find a few key aspects to keep in mind when giving out corporate giveaways to customers, business partners, and employees:

Make sure to be thoughtful with the gift choice!

It is advisable to avoid picking out a giveaway simply for the sake of gifting out something. Make sure to opt for an item that the recipient finds useful. This goal can be easily achieved by choosing an industry related product, or opting for a product that can be easily used in more than one single way. For instance, custom lanyards can make great giveaways because they can be comfortably used to carry around a wide variety of objects: the car keys, a USB drive, and even a bottle of water or a flashlight.

If possible, try to hand deliver the giveaway to the recipient!

If you can take the time to personally deliver your giveaway to its recipient, don’t hesitate! By doing so, everything will become more meaningful to the recipients. However, if you are not able to deliver the gift in person, you can always try to add a hand written note or gift tag, thus giving it a more personal, warm touch.

Make sure to check with company policies prior to giving away corporate gifts

If you do not wish for your gesture to be perceived as inappropriate by a client or business partner, it is advisable to check the company policies. Gift giving may be considered OK at your own company. However, the receiving associate or company may have different views or rules based on circumstance.

Corporate gift giving must be seen as an investment by your company

Therefore, it is advisable to budget for it just like you would with any other investment. Avoid getting caught with no extra funds at the end of the year and unable to thank properly those who really deserve it!
