The Best Branded Corporate Gift
You’ve had a great meeting. Now you want to leave your hosts with something special to remember you by. A corporate gift; something thoughtful and relevant and conveys how much their business, or future business, means to you. Or perhaps you want to show your appreciation for your employees’ hard work over the year and continued company commitment.
Below are Impact’s favourite corporate gifts that will definitely leave a lasting impact.
Anything, as long as it’s personalised
We love receiving things with our names on them. It gives us immediate ownership because “it’s got our name written all over it.” It shows we’ve been thought about and given something that is especially for us. A personalised corporate gift is great for employee appreciation. Even more so when it’s an end of year gift that makes the individual feel special while rewarding the whole team.
We’ve found that the best items to personalise are mugs and drink bottles, notebooks and compendiums, and tote bags. These products are useful and relevant, which guarantees they’ll be well received and used time and time again.
Tea infusers and tea chests
For those offices of tea connoisseurs a quality tea chest is likely to take pride of place in the lunch room. Visible to many and with great space for branding, a tea chest is highly customisable. You can fill it with a mix of favourites. Alternatively, you can leave spaces for the recipient to include their own. This product tells your client that you care about quality and you know what they like.
Modern and stylish tea infusers are likely to appeal to clients and employees. There has been an increase in the popularity of glass drink bottles. Easily printed, etched and engraved, glass drink bottles have a more quality feel than plastic. Which we know can sometimes feel mass-produced and impersonal.
Yes, while they may not get the visibility of hats and pens, branded socks can be a quirky, functional gift to add to a thank-you hamper. Branding doesn’t even have to be on the sock itself. On the packaging works just as well. Adding a pair of socks shows clients you’re willing to think outside of the box and like mum used to say, you can never have too many clean socks.
Succulents and Green Care Hampers
Clean, green and earth-friendly, succulent plants look great around the office and home. Not only that, but they recycle the air and improve brain function.
Give this living gift by themselves in a branded pot for a simple, stand out gift. On the other hand, you could include it in a care hamper accompanied by seeds, a branded spray bottle and potting mix. Either way, you will be ensuring your client remembers your visit.
For the right client and workplace, a product that is a little bit different has a great impact.
Duffel Bags and Device Cases
Who out there has no need for a bag? Even if they don’t now, they will sooner or later and then yours will be there waiting for them to pick up. A bag never goes astray. Quality is important when gifting these as promotional products. Anyone can give out a bag for any occasion. However, the frequent corporate traveler will use a well-made and well-placed consistently.
Bags are a universal necessity and as society moves further into the technological age, device cases will follow. For many, if not all, of those involved in any kind of business carrying at least a smart phone, device cases are invaluable. Quality products will determine their lasting use, as again, fantastic plastic versions abound in the promotional product world. You want yours to stand out and last. So opt for quality when wanting to make an impact on clients and employees.
After all this, it is important to remember that giving is all about the recipient, even if it is an opportunity for free marketing. The right corporate gift for the right person will always go down well. Being thoughtful about what your client’s needs are and what your employees will appreciate will guarantee positive reception and lasting use of your gift.
