Corporate gifting is a proven method to help increase loyalty amongst clients and employees. This article provides 21 unique corporate gift ideas to help you make a lasting impression.
What is a Unique Corporate Gift?
Corporate gifting is one of the best methods of building relationships and adding a personal touch to all areas of a business. It is usually a present given by a business to clients, employees, or other business partners. It’s a way for companies to say “thanks for doing business with us” without actually having to say it out loud. Choosing unique corporate gift ideas can help recipients feel valued and in turn increase their loyalty to your company. Plus, who doesn’t love free stuff?
Keys to Unique Corporate Gifts
When brainstorming for unique corporate gift ideas, the main key is to always personalize the experience to your recipient as much as possible. Personalization is both key in terms of the specific item, messaging as well as the packaging. You want to make sure the gift aligns with your recipients preferences or passions to make sure it has the greatest possible impact. Adding in a handwritten note in a nice box can help increase a recipient’s satisfaction.
Furthermore, to have truly unique corporate gift ideas, it is important to get to know your recipients well. Throughout any conversations with either clients or employees, take note of the little things they may mention. Gifting based on these small details will make the recipient feel heard and allow them to appreciate the gift on a personal level.
