One of our favorite parts of our job is working with clients around the holidays.
Our clients are always so excited to purchase gifts for their employees and customers, putting special care into selecting the perfect items to show their appreciation. Here are our tips for making holiday gifting easy for your company:
Start planning earlier than you think!
We have said it before and we will say it again: making sure your gifts are well-designed and thoughtful takes time to get right.
Everything from selecting a product, to the way they are customized to the method of delivery are important considerations that will impact the overall experience. These decisions also affect the time it takes to create and distribute your gifts.
We recommend you begin that process now! Read more about the importance of beginning your holiday shopping now!
Choose an audience
The first part of developing your holiday gifting strategy is to understand your audience. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Who are you looking to give a gift to?
- Are your gifts for clients, employees, leads or someone else?
- How many people do you want to reach?
- Are they in one location or many?
Next up, consider your timeline and budget.
Start by working backwards from the day you want your gifts in hand. For example, if you plan on handing out your gifts at the holiday party on December 23rd, plan on them arriving a few days early. Work backwards from there. Then, finalize your budget and we are ready to go!
Now – the fun part. Once you have your audience, timeline and budget, our job is to browse our selection and brainstorm some options for you.
We are here to make sure you pull off the perfect holiday gifts for your employees and customers this year.
