While the dates never change, it seems like the time for branded holiday gifts sneak up on us every year!
Spring comes, then summer, then before you know it you are hanging mistletoe and wrapping gifts wondering where the year went!
Personally, preparing for the holidays is fun and exciting! On a corporate level, it can be confusing and stressful. We get it, there are so many things to consider when it comes to holiday gifting, for example: budgets, recipients, messaging, selecting the perfect items.
This year (well, every year) we are making it our goal to make this a simple and FUN process for all of our clients. How?
- Provide new and exciting gift options for every budget
- Oversee fulfillment and delivery
- Provide wrapping options
Most importantly though, we urge you to start early!
Early bird gets the worm, right? Yes, especially in 2021! Here are some reasons why NOW is the time to plan your holiday gifting strategy:
#1. Supply Shortages
Compared to last year, this year things are looking a lot better. That said, we are seeing low inventory across many of our top apparel and drinkware products.
While we still have an incredible selection of items that will make people excited, the earlier you decide to order, the easier it is to guarantee that you will be able to get the products you want.
We’ll always help you find something that will be perfect for your needs— but the earlier you order the wider your options are.
#2. Lead times for custom options
As you know, if you have a unique vision, we can help bring it to life. But the reality is that certain customization techniques take more time than others.
We stand behind our customer service, and will always go above and beyond to make sure there is a solution that fits your needs in the timeline you have. That said, we want you to have exactly what you want. So, the sooner you order, the better the chances!
#3. Offer a store
The opportunities for gift options are endless, and we know how important it is to “nail it” when you are handling gifts for clients and employees.
Our solution? A store! We can collaborate with you to create a list of options for people to choose from. We will then create a store and help you assign gift cards to recipients, allowing them to select exactly what they want. We will handle fulfillment and shipping, too!
#4. Make a custom holiday box
One of our favorite corporate holiday gifts is a custom box, filled with branded items. Branded boxes are an amazing way to connect with your audience, but they do take some time and creativity to put together!
We can help by ordering the items, packing the boxes and shipping out to recipients. This takes time, so the earlier you order, the better!
We all know that the perfect holiday gift can help strengthen relationships and reconnect your brand with the people who move it forward. Start the process now!
