Corporate Gifting Tips
With the holiday season right around the corner, stress levels may begin to rise when it comes to gifting in general, but even more so corporate gifting. It is a tricky business which needs to be negotiated with tenderness and care. Trying to navigate gift-giving for staff or clients can be more difficult than finding presents for family. There are many pitfalls associated with corporate gift giving. Let your gifts be an extension of your corporate brand. Allow Stran to help you stay sane this holiday season.
Inappropriate gifts: By giving corporate gifts, it’s important to make sure you are representing your brand well. Giving gifts that are professional is imperative while picking out what to send to clients. It is nice to have a goal in mind for a gift and to choose one that achieves the desired affect you are looking for. Whether you want to keep it small and simple, or large and personalized, keep it professional.
Logo Placement or Treatment: Is there a logo or brand message sent with the gift? If not, think about adding one to your gifts to stand out from other potential competitors also sending presents this season. It could be as simple as a small logo in a corner, just a little something to get your brand name out.
Brand Inconsistency: Keeping gifts consistent in the office is crucial in making sure no one over or under gifts. When co-workers go off on their own and decide to give gifts without coordinating with everyone else, it can start to get chaotic. Coming together and not gifting on your own can add a sense of relief to the present process.
Less buying power: Are you getting the best price for each item if everyone is going off and buying their own gifts? Most likely no. Working together to coordinate gifts to send can simplify the process and give you the best price possible. Think about all sending the same gifts and keeping it consistent throughout the office.
Chasing Orders: One of the most demanding jobs a person can be assigned, is the “gift coordinator”. It may be easy having one person in charge of it all, but at the end of the day the job isn’t as simple as it sounds. Coordinating the gifts, chasing people for money, buying the gifts, and getting them to the recipients can be a lot of work for one person. It should, and can be much more simple than this.
Getting gifts to the recipients: Who’s sending them? How are they shipping? Is the cost being accounted in the budget? Are they shipping to the recipient or are they going to get handed to the recipient personally? All of these questions come in to play when deciding how to get gifts to the recipient. It is a lot of questions for one person to handle, so why not have Stran help you.
