Tips for Corporate Gifting

Corporate gifting isn’t easy! It takes some thought, and maybe even a little research into the recipients. Here are a few tips for corporate gifting that will ensure it is a worthwhile investment - and does not reflect poorly on your brand.

  • Avoid items that you yourself would not want. If you don’t want it, why would someone else?
  • Consider items that a person would want, but might not be willing to buy for themselves - especially if you are leaning towards a luxury gift.
  • Multifunctional items that can be used both at home and in the office, are best.
  • Items that benefit people beyond the initial recipient are always fun. Think of who else might use the gift- friends, family, coworkers etc. This is a great way to ensure the gift will always be enjoyed.
  • Incorporate your morals in the gift. If supporting local, other small businesses, woman owned is important, support those businesses when sending a gift,  even if it is just a small add-on, such as food or a gift card.
  • Aim to be inclusive. Try to think of products that everyone would benefit from and not just a portion of people.
  • Don’t over brand. It's okay to feature your company logo or colors, but don’t make it the focus of the product. This can actually deter people from using it altogether - especially higher end gifts. People typically remember who sent them a gift when its quality and unique, no need to brand it for them to recall.
  • Stray from knick knacks. Don’t contribute to waste by investing in nonfunctional gifts. This can also put a burden on the recipient, who has to throw it away.
