In today’s competitive market, great holiday gift ideas for businesses and their employers/employees are quite hard to come by. Business gifts are a way to show you as a company have remembered that business, and value their custom. The nicer the gift, the more likelihood there is that you’ll be remembered. However, holiday gift ideas are even harder, because so many people utilize that aspect of business marketing at holiday times of year and try hard to think of new creative gifts which will delight the recipient.
Candy Jars with your business’ name and logo on. Definitely one way to get you remembered AFTER the holiday season when the employees are sitting popping candies from the jar after returning to work feeling that bit jaded. A bit of comfort eating every now and again is good for the soul, don’t let anyone tell you any different. What about gift certificates? Not so personal you might think, but why not be a bit impersonal? It is business to business after all, and this way you know they’re going to be able to spend that certificate on something they really need without having to ‘use up’ those seventeen hampers they got from their best providers.
If you really put your mind to it, you can come up with a veritable plethora of different ideas:
o Business Card cases
o Letter openers, money clips, paperweights – the list goes on.
You can use these same tried and tested gifts, and enhance them a little – so they don’t seem so uniform. Tie a red ribbon with a Happy Thanksgiving card to the padfolio, umbrellas with a ‘Christmas’ version of your logo embossed upon it; sure it might not be used all year around, but people will see your logo at that time of year and think about your generosity. What about mothers’ and father’s day gifts? Perhaps cufflinks with a ‘courtesy of your business at father’s day’ card attached. Utilizing older ideas in a fresh and unique way will always get you noticed, it’s just that tiny bit more time and creativity which is obviously put into these things which make them that touch more memorable.
Never forget your own merchandise! Mugs, t-shirts, pens, binders and even diaries – these objects are designed to capture the attention of the people watching their boss sip coffee from that mug you sent, your logo will be remembered, and the office workplace always needs extra supplies so it should never be unwelcome. No matter what you sell, you can send gifts to show your unique ideas and pro-active attitude towards gaining future business with valued customers. There is no need to not consider more creative ideas, which other people very probably aren’t employing in their marketing campaigns – in fact you should make extra effort to make sure you are doing something very few others will do. Giving business gifts is more than just about holiday spirit, it’s about being remembered and gaining future work too.
