As the end of the year approaches, businesses and organizations are planning their customary appreciation programs with employee and client gift ideas for their team and customers. This year, with pandemic restrictions still in place, recognition programs, and business holiday celebrations present new challenges.
Since solving marketing challenges is our sweet spot here at Sunrise Printing, we have come up with creative ways to make this year’s holiday business gifts programs as effective as ever for our clients, and we want to share some of those ideas with you.
One thing that’s different this year, is that for the most part, there won’t be any in-person events or office holiday parties where the gifts were typically distributed. This means that business gifts have to be dropped shipped directly to employees or client’s homes, which adds time to the turnaround of the project.
However, the package itself provides an extra opportunity for branding and wow factor. After all, you want your gift to be clearly different from the barrage of Amazon boxes they’ve been getting for the past months.
And remember, we handle everything, from the sourcing of the products to the custom box design, packaging to drop shipping.
When it comes to the items to go in the package, we go for a combination of items that are quality and fit the recipient’s lifestyle or work environment and also represent your organization’s culture.
Let’s have a look at our top ten favorite gift products
1. Custom printed blankets
A nice comfy blanket is always a welcomed gift. You can just add a greeting card for a personal touch, or pair it with a tumbler and hot chocolate packets. Finish the gift by presenting it in a wooden box that people will want to keep and put to good use. There are many styles and price points to chose from, we’ll be happy to find the perfect one for your project.
2. Branded tech products
