The art of corporate gifting can be challenging, but great news – we’re here to help! We put together a checklist of 5 things to consider when shopping for the perfect business gift that’ll help you leave a lasting impression and set the bar high with your recipients! Before you order, ask these questions:
1 – Are you sending at the right time?
Are the holidays the only time to send a business gift? Absolutely not! Although many believe the most popular time to send a corporate gift is around the holidays, there are so many other opportunities to WOW your business partners, clients, and employees. Gifting at other times of the year can have a more personal impact on the recipient, especially if you keep other holidays and occasions in mind!

2 – Is it for an individual or a team?
Be aware of the number of recipients prior to sending! Are you sending to an individual person, the team, or an entire office? Make sure you select a gift that everyone can enjoy! If you send a gift that’s large enough to share, you’re not only impressing your recipient, but their friends, family, and colleagues as well.
3 – Does it have personality?
You want to make an impression that you care about the person who is receiving your gift and that you truly understand their interests. Go for a gift that both reflects your personality and accurately represents the relationship you have with the recipient. Consider ordering your gifts from a vendor that offers a variety of options so you can give your recipients something with a similar theme, but are different enough to add a more personal touch.
4 – Is it a thoughtful gift?
The best gifts always have a lot of thought behind them. Always remember that a business gift is sent for two reasons: to maintain or strengthen an existing professional relationship or to build a new one. Make sure the gift you choose represents you or your company in a positive way while keeping the recipient in mind! Trust in a company that is an expert in their trade and guarantees a high-quality gift, and experience. You want to present them with something that’s impressive, and that you’re proud to have them receive.
5 – Is it memorable?
The best gifts are the ones that you can’t forget or stop talking about! Opt for something hand-crafted that you can’t get anywhere else. This will allow you to set expectations high for other gifts they’ll receive in the future. You want your recipient to feel that you personally hand-selected this gift for them. You don’t want to make them feel like this is what you gave to ALL your partners, clients, or employees! Make sure that your card addresses them by name and features a kind message that makes it feel as if you wrote it yourself. Once you choose the perfect gift, have it hand-delivered to their home or office for an extra surprise! When it arrives to the office, everyone’s eyes will follow where it goes, and (most likely) hope it’s for them!
