Our team will glad to help, guide, recommend, give alternatives and suggest from experience of what could work. In the meantime, this could also help...
PRESENTATION: What you give is as important as how you give it. Use quality
packing, where possible customize with a personalized note, name tag or engraving. If its an item that will be used everyday, like mugs, key chains, notebooks use logo
customization, make sure its rugged, durable, reliable and colours stay in tact for long. Though a corporate logo provides free advertising, never use it when you want to leave the impression that the gift is coming personally from you.
CORPORATE POLICIES: Many companies, non-profits, and government offices will have a gift policy limiting the dollar value of a gift or prohibiting gifts. Be sure to check with your
recipients, ask their HR/Marketing team to determine the limitations of gift giving so they don’t have to return the item or turn it down entirely.
DETERMINE WANTS: Knowing what to buy is the biggest challenge. It’s difficult to
know your clients on a personal level in many cases. The best bet is to call a sample pool
of your customers and ask them what they like, their hobbies, see their publicly available Linked In, Facebook profiles or blog etc., to give you a great idea
of what to buy, their interests . Ask any common contacts for suggestions.
CONSIDER CULTURAL DIFFERENCES: Each country and culture will have their rules . For instance, in China, a gift should never be wrapped in white since it symbolizes death.
GO FOR QUALITY: Any business gift you send reflects the image of your company.
Avoid lower quality, tacky, cheap knock-offs that can impair your image. You want the product to last for a while You want to be remembered for the right reasons. Purchase quality products . They pay for themselves in the long run.
PS: Corporate gifts are a great way to connect with your clients and build a relation. Give the right gift to the right time at the right person can make that difference.
