Why Send Gifts for Business Partners?
Around the holidays, people often look forward to, and sometimes expect to receive a gift. This is true for any type of relationship – whether business or personal. Moreover, according to stats at least 83% of people say they love promotional gifts. That said, Christmas gifts for business partners also have their own set of advantages for you and your brand. Let’s look at some of these benefits of sending gifts for business partners around the festive time of year:
- It Markets Your Brand Appropriately: Christmas gifts do a ton for marketing your brand. This time of year is often a way to market your brand image in a slightly different manner – in keeping with the festivities. It’s been said that people often keep a branded promotional item for a year or so; longer depending on the functionality of the product. So, when choosing your Christmas gifts for business partners and associates, keep the practicality of the gift in mind. If it serves the purpose of being used multiple times, those are many opportunities to optimize brand recall.
- It Shows a Vested Interest in the Partnership: For you to demonstrate loyalty to your valued business relationships, you often need to put in effort. Corporate gifting is a well-recognized and proven method to display appreciation and recognition in the workplace. Sending your business associates a Christmas gift will be a sign of your efforts in keeping the professional bond strong and relevant, which will lead to a reinforcement of mutual trust.
- It Reinforces Value in Your Business: Sending a gift around the holidays, and more specially a well-thought out gift, will help reinforce value in your company. If you choose a premium or high-quality gift; you are sending your colleagues a specific message about your brand. Alternatively, your choice of a sustainable gift will demonstrate your attentiveness to the wellbeing of the environment.
What to Keep in Mind
There are some important things to note before sending Christmas gifts for business partners. These revolve around proper gifting etiquette and appropriateness. For starters, review the company policy and regulations that your business associate is required to adhere to. In some cases there may be a spend limit that you are essentially required to abide by or other regulations that dictate the type of gift your recipient is allowed to receive. In these cases, when using Giftsenda, the recipient will have the option to swap a gift for a more appropriate option or donate it to a worthy cause. Also, if you are sending a gift to an international partner, it would serve you well to familiarize yourself with their gifting customs and beliefs, such as those religious or political.
Choose a gift that reflects your message well and serves a purpose. You can highlight your brand image with your gift choice and let the gift speak for itself, or you can find a way to add in your mission statement to reflect those values. Moreover, for a more personalized approach, you can customize the gift; which shows you’ve put in the extra effort to make a meaningful difference.
