Luxury Gifting Ideas For Corporates – What and When To Give

A vital aspect of any business is maintaining close-knit relationships with your clients, partners, and employees. Of course, sending unique corporate gifts in order to do so is an excellent way of showing your business associates how much you appreciate their trust in you, and also helps you to keep up that good rapport and reputation within your sector. But choosing corporate gift items can be a challenging prospect. How exactly do you strike the right balance between thoughtful business gifts that are appropriate that don’t step outside of your company’s code of ethics? Use our guide below to help you navigate the complexities of luxury gifting ideas for corporates, helping you decide what to give and when to give it.

Gifts For Clients

Corporate gifts for clients are difficult to master. Keeping things simple, but with a personalised touch, can make client gift-giving less of a strain. One universal corporate gift idea that is sure to prove successful is food – providing your clients with a selection of luxury treats and snacks for their team shows that you’re appreciative of their business and continued relationship with your company. A selection of sweet and savoury snacks means that you’re putting together something for everyone – make sure you include alcoholic-free beverages and dairy-free and gluten-free treats as you wouldn’t want to alienate any of your clients. A broad selection of luxury snacks and drinks for your clients – what’s so unique about that? Well, here’s where the personal touch comes in. Personalise your corporate gift to the client you’re sending it to with a unique presentation box, intricately carved with their name or logo on the box. That way, your client knows that this gift was made just for them. Add your own card with a personalised message for a finishing touch – this will show your client your appreciation for their continued support of your business. Remember to make sure that your client is able to accept your gift before sending too. You may find that some public sector organisations do not accept gifts over a certain price or at all so it’s always worth checking before you buy.

When Should You Send Gifts To Clients?

You don’t always have to send gifts to clients around the holidays. If your work together has recently seen a highly successful event or campaign, then sending across an impromptu congratulatory gift is a great way of showing your client how much you appreciate their business, and that you care about their success as much as you do your own. Send a ‘Congratulations’ hamper when your work together has proved particularly fruitful.

Gifts For Partner & Directors

Show your partners and directors that you greatly value their input with a more personal gift. It doesn’t have to break the budget, but it should be something that shows how thankful you are for all their hard work. A personalised leather notebook is a professional way of showing how highly you think of your directors’ hard work. If, however, you’re buying just a handful of gifts for a small team of partners or directors, you could make each gift you give slightly different depending on how close your team is. Do you know that they have a favourite celebratory drink? Maybe your finance director loves prosecco? And your head of operations prefers whisky? Choose your directors’ favourite drinks, and team with personally engraved glasses to suit their preferred tipple. Not only will a personally engraved message on a glass show them how much you appreciate their work, but it will also add a celebratory feel to their gift, especially if you’ve had a particularly successful quarter or business endeavour that should be acknowledged with a congratulatory drink.

When Should You Send Gifts To Partners?

Recently won some new business due to a director’s input? Or increased your customer base after a specific partner has come on board? Show your appreciation with a small corporate gift. Whether it’s a bottle of wine, or a personalised notebook, a small gesture will act as an incentive to your management team to keep pushing for increased business wherever possible.

Gifts For Employees

Are you buying gifts for your entire workforce? A small gesture goes a long way when it comes to gifts for employees. Show your appreciation for their hard work with a gift voucher or with a decadent sweet treat. A box of ‘Thank You’ chocolates is a sure to be a hit for everyone in the office, but if you’ve had a particularly good year why not treat the team with a luxury sharing hamper, filled to the brim with sweet treats to share in the kitchen? Chocolate and biscuits are always a crowd-pleaser and will be a winner whatever your budget is for employee gifts. Take the gift up a notch if the budget allows and add some bubbly ready for the Christmas party, and make sure your team knows how much you appreciate their work with a large ‘Thank You’ chocolate plaque. Remember to keep in mind those that have dietary requirements too – add some diabetic chocolate to your team sharing hamper, and don’t forget to add some dairy-free and gluten-free treats to your hamper too.

When Should You Send Gifts To Employees?

The end of the year is generally a reflective time for businesses, and an excellent opportunity to show your staff how highly you think of their hard work and attitude throughout the year. A small token of appreciation at Christmas will help keep your employees motivated so that when they come back to work in the new year they’ll be ready and raring to help you achieve success once again.

8 Corporate Gift Giving Mistakes To Avoid

Looking for corporate gift ideas for clients or staff? Or perhaps you’ve found one you think fits the bill perfectly? Hold fire for a second – make sure you get clued up on all the gift giving faux-pas you need to avoid before delivering your corporate gifts. Whether you want to make a good impression among loyal customers or to reward hard-working employees, corporate gift giving can be tricky. Tread the line carefully when choosing your gifts – follow our guide on the top 10 business gift giving mistakes to avoid. Gifts For Clients You Should Avoid 1. Cheap Gifts Avoiding cheap corporate presents is a must when trying to impress. If a corporate gift looks inexpensive, it will only defeat the point of buying it in the first place. Loyal customers or hard-working employees deserve to be shown gratitude through your corporate gift giving, and if their present appears cheap and unthoughtful, it’s a lost opportunity to build trust and respect. 2. Overly Expensive Gifts While cheap gifts should be avoided at all cost, making sure you don’t go overboard with your business gift giving is just as important. A gift that has obviously cost a small fortune can make the recipient feel uncomfortable, especially if it’s out of proportion to the amount they spend with you or the salary you pay them. Play it safe with a realistic budget – if you don’t spend too little and avoid spending too much, your gift should send just the right message. 3. Adhering To Cultural and Religious Beliefs One of the most important rules to follow when buying gifts for co-workers or clients – being sensitive to their cultural or religious beliefs. Take into account that your recipient may not celebrate the same holidays that you do. For example, delivering a corporate Christmas gift for a Jehovah’s Witness, or a present containing pork for someone of Muslim faith, may be interpreted as insensitive. Instead, make sure that you know your gift recipient well enough to know when to send – and when not to. After all, why not take the opportunity to send out gifts for events they celebrate – even if you don’t? 4. Too Personal Gifts This type of present is the epitome of trying too hard, and one that should be avoided at all costs. Stick to the boundaries of a professional gift – trying to guess what your recipient likes can come across as inappropriate and it could cause offence. 5. Comedic Corporate Gifts Funny corporate gifts – as witty and comedic as the joke may be, depending on the humour of your client or employee, it can be hit or miss. Unless you are confident your humour will be well received, the best option is to play it safe and professional. 6. Promotional Gifts Business gift giving with a promotional message behind it is never a good way of creating strong relationships. Adding a logo to your gift is more than acceptable, but creating a marketing tactic to increase profit gain or an upsell on a contract isn’t a wise choice. A corporate gift should show your gratitude and appreciation, or reward hard work – if the recipient thinks you’re only sending it for promotional gain, the purpose of your corporate gift giving will become pointless. 7. Forgetting Your Presentation Skills When thinking of gift ideas for clients, sending them out with immaculate presentation is essential. Not only do these corporate presents represent your brand and company, but if they arrive unwrapped or with an obvious lack of effort, your present will seem instantly less appealing. Look for a corporate gift provider that specialises in immaculately presented gifts and you should be on track for gifting success. 8. Keep Gifts Corporate To play it safe, keep it corporate. For an element of professionalism, why not try branded corporate hampers? Etched with laser engraving with your desired message and company logo, these professional gifts are a quick win to developing strong relationships and ensuring recipients feel appreciated and respected. They’ll also help your company to stay front of mind with important clients. Now you’re in the know about which business gift ideas to avoid, why not explore our full selection of corporate hampers?
