Do you want to connect with established clients? Are you wanting to make a good impression on potential business partners as well? Corporate gift giving is a great idea if you’re trying to connect in a warm holiday way while still remaining professional.
The holidays make this opportunity so much easier, giving is less stressful when you worry only about the act of giving it’s self. Some of the most popular and appropriate corporate or business gifts include potted plants, holiday floral arrangements and gift baskets. There are honestly endless options for gift giving, even in the corporate area. When choosing a gift for a special client you should keep some certain considerations in mind before making any purchases.
First of all, be sure you’re aware of all company policies before you make any purchases. Make sure you know of any specific gratuity limits that are placed are gifts by your company. Before you make any decisions on gifts keep in mind any cultural differences that may exist so that you do not offend your client.
Keep in mind that any gift you give will directly reflect your company’s image, so be certain that you choose high quality items. And be certain that you have the gift delivered in a professional manner, by a professional delivery service company. Now let’s take a minute to consider some of the best corporate gift ideas.
1. Floral Arrangements
Christmas flowers and potted plants are a very big seller in the corporate world. They are a beautiful and fragrant option. They dress up the work place. They make the office area appear brighter, warmer and more welcoming. If you chose to go with a floral arrangement you’ve not only expressed interest in the client, invested in them personally and extended the proverbial “olive branch” but you’ve always added to their company. You’ve enhanced the appearance of their corporate office and made it a nicer place for any visitors they may have in the building.
2. Gift Baskets
Gift baskets are a great idea for any client. There are so many different options to chose from when it comes to gift baskets. If you’re client is a fitness center you may want to keep that in mind and opt for a gift basket that is loaded with fruits, nuts and juices. If you are looking for a gift for a client that is a predominately male office you may want to consider a gift basket with a sports theme. Perhaps something with nuts, pretzels, chips and maybe some drinks. Any office that is mainly women would greatly welcome any gift basket overflowing with chocolates, cookies and coffees. That is certain to be a very happy and pleasant office after that gift basket is delivered. There are also gift baskets that are piled high with nothing but delicious junk food. Gobs of candy and sweet foods. Be sure to keep in mind that there are specialty or luxurious gift baskets as well. These gift baskets will contain higher priced items such as top of the line coffee, chocolate and even wine. These gift baskets will give a very high impression of your company.
