Christmas is fast approaching and there is no better time to plan what you are going to do for your 2014 corporate Christmas gifts than now. But if you are overwhelmed about where to start, here is a quick guide to help get you started.
The selection process is hard especially if the full burden is on you. To lighten the load, try to get advice from people. You can implement a suggestion board at work, which people can post on to provide you with some suggestions and recommendations. Or, you can seek expert advice from an established corporate gifts provider.
While choosing, you should always put yourself in the recipient’s shoes. Purchase gifts that you would surely appreciate receiving and there is a big tendency that your executives, associates and clients would also love it. When you are confident about the gift you are giving, you will never really regret putting your company’s logo on it.
Tap into the practicality side too. It would be a lot better to send gifts that the recipient can use on a daily basis. Luxury soaps, wines, perfumes and even a food hamper for Christmas are great picks. Choose functionality or usability this will ensure your gift is not left sitting on shelves.
But of course, while being all too practical about your gift, make sure that it will fit your company’s budget. Usually companies have budgeted for the amount they wish to spend on gifts, and whilst you may want to buy high end luxury items to impress your recipients, it’s important to remember the reason for the gift. Appreciating your clients and sending them a gift that demonstrates your gratitude is the most important thing that matters.
