Believe it or not, it is Christmas in about 100 days and now is a great time for companies to start thinking about what to give their customers, clients and employees as a way of showing appreciation and saying thank you. Christmas cards and Christmas eshots really are old hat now and one of the most common ways to do this is by way of a branded gift. By this I mean a product customised with your company name, logo or slogan. These types of gifts are sometimes used at trade shows, events or as a creative marketing campaign, but Christmas is probably the busiest time in terms of corporate merchandise.
Why would a company send a branded gift?
Well, gifts are meant to affirm business relationships and enhance personal connections between clients, customers, and employees. In fact, according to Promotional Products Association International, gift-giving is proven to actually increase business activity hence, so if you’re looking at it purely in financial terms, corporate gifts actually increase the return on investment. With so many different products available, where do you start? Do you simply incorporate your imprint or logo into a festive card and deliver to clients? Probably not. Do you send wine or candle stick holders or branded clothing? Don’t know.
Maybe you just want to reconnect with old customers or want to say thank you to your employees or commercially, you want to put your brand on more radars or you just see branded gifts as a great marketing opportunity. Whatever your reason, for many people, the Christmas period is THE time of the year to kick back and celebrate. Christmas parties, team building events, away days, shopping days etc, all contribute to making December a great month of the year. People tend to be happier at this time of year and, no matter how old we are, we all like receiving presents.
Your choices really are endless. Branded notebooks, sweets, pens, clothing, wooden products, bottle openers, bags are all generally valued and kept by the recipient. There is also the option of sending a gift which is purely Christmas related like Christmas trees or ornaments.
