Corporate Gifts – Ideas and Inspiration

corporate gifts

With the holidays rapidly approaching, now is the time to think about corporate gifts.  Thoughtfully chosen corporate gifts show appreciation for employees or clients.  Create a positive vibe around the office with gifts for the staff, or keep clients loyal with personalized luxury gifts.

The best corporate gifts are useful.  Useful doesn’t necessarily mean the gift has to be practical.  A luxurious, pampering gift such as a spa gift box engraved with your logo or scented candles will make the recipient feel appreciated.  Food items such as chocolates or nuts are always appreciated, as well.  Practical gifts are great, too, because the recipient may use the gift often–for example a mobile charger or thermal mug.

Gift Box with Logo

Corporate gifts can help keep your company on the mind of your customer, and associate your company with a positive feeling.  Customers and clients will think of your company when they use the gift, and will feel valued.  Send an elegant gift such as a leather journal personalized with his or her name embossed on the cover, or a gift basket tailored to his or her interests.

To truly make customers and employees feel appreciated and valued, include a personal, handwritten note with the gift.  This shows more effort and will have a greater impact than simply sending out the same gift and generic card to everyone.  A handwritten note makes the recipient feel that time and effort was put into the gift.  Customized note cards with your company logo and message are a great, as long as a personal written note is inside.

Don’t forget your employees who keep your business running.  As with gifts for clients, the best gifts for employees are thoughtful and useful.  Gifts such as a basket of gourmet snacks, a gift card to a favorite restaurant, or tech gadgets are popular corporate gift items.

Corporate gifts are not just for the holidays!  Gifts are even more appreciated at unexpected times.  Surprise an employee with a gift recognizing an above-and-beyond effort, or send a client a fun gift on a different holiday such as St. Patrick’s Day or Valentine’s Day.

Dirty Santa 2014

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas at SunDANCE. We had a cookie exchange and still have so much cookies for today. It was a great way to start a Monday morning (and a Tuesday Morning).

Cookie Exchange

In the afternoon Dyan gathered us all up and had gifts for us all to play Dirty Santa! We had so much fun playing and it made for a great time to end our Monday. We are very lucky to work for such a fun and caring boss. Here are some pictures of our adventures yesterday.

Do you have any fun things you do at work? We always try to find something fun to do since we work in such a small environment. 

We hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Come back and visit us in 2015!

Metallic Markers for the Holidays

My favorite part of the holidays is wrapping presents for other people. I can remember always wanting to help my mom when it came time to wrap and we made a great time of it. Now that I am older, with a daughter of my own, I try to make it special by letting her help with what she can. This year our presents are wrapped in red and silver. These Sharpie Metallic Markers are the perfect touch to finish them off.

Sharpie

Each pack includes a silver, gold, and bronze metallic marker to add zing to your decorations, greeting cards, holiday invitations, name tags, or whatever your heart desires. They add a brilliant sheen to both light and dark surfaces. (They really work great on my black chalkboard nametags for my gifts.)

Sharpie

Since they are made by Sharpie they have the same great quality that all Sharpies have. They are opaque permanent ink, fade and water resistant, quick drying, nontoxic formula, and no shaking is required just uncap and write!

Stock up now while they are on sale and make your holidays sparkle!
