Personalised promotional gifts, the best corporate giftsThere are many reasons for promotional gifts. Perhaps you’d like to thank your loyal clients for their business and faith in your company, or wish all of your customers a successful new year with a small gift at the end of the year. We are seeing promotional gifts being given all year round for various reasons, including gifts for employees.
Personalised promotional gifts for your best clientsOne of the most common reasons for promotional gifts is to maintain the relationship a company has built with its existing clients. A promotional gift shows your client that they are important to you. Realising that you’re in business with individual people rather than a faceless company is key, as people love feeling seen. You can keep your business relationship warm and in great shape by sending out a little thank you to your business contacts every now and then. This also gives you a good reason to reach out, to find out if they enjoyed their gift, especially if its an edible gift such as chocolate or sweets. The more you show your client that you care, the stronger the business relationship.
Do be aware that, in some cases, companies that you are working with aren’t permitted to accept all promotional gifts. For instance, they may only be permitted to accept gifts up to a certain value, or not permitted to accept any promotional gifts at all. In other cases, promotional gifts are submitted to a raffle for employees. It’s always important to keep these rules in mind when selecting your promotional gift, you may even want to ask the company if your gift can be accepted. Our tip would be to stick to a small gesture, such as a delicious personalised Toblerone bar, practical personalised water bottle or an engraved decanter for the office. All of these gifts can be used or enjoyed at the office, or shared with colleagues.
Promotional gift trendsThe gift you give depends, in part, on current trends. Back in the day, USB-sticks were a coveted gift, followed by power bars. To help you select the gift you should go for now, we’ve listed the 9 latest trends for you, from small gifts to beautiful personalised suitcases and champagne gift sets.
Gifts for your employeesTraditionally speaking, the end of the year is the perfect moment to thank your employees for their hard work over the past year. This often happens at the company holiday celebration with a Christmas gift. We are now seeing companies surprise their employees with gifts throughout the year, such as personalised sweaters featuring the company logo, a personalised beach towel for their holidays or personalised water bottles for them to use at work and when commuting.
Important dates!There are a few important recurring dates that you should note as perfect opportunities to surprise your employees with a little something. These are:
- Going back to the office in September
- World Teacher Day on 5 October
- Administrative Professionals Day on 15 April
- International Nurses Day on 12 May
Gifts for employees working from homeAs employees work from home more and more, we’re seeing companies struggle to stay in touch as they would at the office. If you’re seeing people less often, how can you ensure that they will remain actively involved? It can be especially hard to navigate as a larger company, which is why companies are opting to send out small gifts throughout the year. This could be a puzzle featuring a team photo or a delicious bar of personalised chocolate, such as Toblerone. Each gift can be personalised with the employee’s name and/or a photo, making it extra special and personal.
Personalised promotional giftsPromotional gifts that are unique and made specifically for each employee or client are called personalised promotional gifts. We specialise in personalising all of our gifts here at YourSurprise, which means that every single gift can be personalised specifically for each recipient. If you’d like to gift 2000 employees their own personalised water bottle featuring their name, no problem. If you’d like to have 500 gifts delivered to 500 different addresses, we can do that for you.
All you need to do is supply a list of your employee’s names, addresses and/or company logo. Some gifts offer the option to add a cool company photo or design as well as your logo. Each promotional gift is truly unique and personal.
