So, you want to spread around lots of Christmas cheer this year to your favourite clients and colleagues. It’s a great chance to show how much you value their relationship and put a smile on their face.
But time is ticking, and Christmas is coming around fast. If the task feels a bit daunting, we wanted to give you some Christmas cheer by making the task a whole lot easier with these four simple steps that we’ve learned over our time in the corporate gift-giving industry: what works, what you need to consider, and what we know people appreciate.
This Christmas, make corporate gifting easy.
A little bit of prep work makes the gift giving process a whole lot easier. Make a list of all the people you plan on sending a gift to, and include notes on the following things:
So important, particularly when gifting to a team or office. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of picking a price that’s the same for all hampers. But perhaps you have a list of people that’s been grouped into different price brackets. Think about your overall budget, and how it will be split. This will help narrow the selection when browsing for hampers.
Corporate branding gives you a fantastic opportunity to personalise your gifts, make them unique, and give them that real ‘wow’ factor. But what sort of branding to choose? Well, to help you make this decision, there are a couple of things to think about.
One: what sort of relationship do you have with the client? Is it more formal than casual? Would it be more appropriate to go with something that looks very slick and corporate? Or are you on more familiar terms with them? If that’s the case, maybe something like a branded postcard with a personalised message on it.
Two: what’s your budget? We have a variety of ways in which you can brand your hampers: ribbons, postcards, engraved picnic baskets and cheeseboards, your brochures, flyers and business cards. Many options and many price brackets.
At Creative Hampers, we have an online ordering system which works well for most orders. But corporate gift giving can be a bit more complex exercise. We have a bulk order form to make it easier which you can find here.
But sometimes you just need to talk to a person and to be honest we simply love to chat to our clients about being creative with our corporate Christmas hampers. No one understands corporate gifting better than us, and we can write all the blogs in the world about it that try to impart our wisdom. But often it’s just easier to talk to you, learn about your particular needs and goals, and then work through the project together. Owners Learne, Sarah and Rachel are ready and waiting to help take away the stress of Christmas Corporate gifting …we just want to make it easy for you!
Let’s make spreading the Christmas cheer so much easier to deliver this year. The more the merrier!
