The Types of Holiday Gifts:

With so many options to choose from, it is good to take a step back and first decide what types of holiday gifts you would like to send.

1. Personalized Gifts: Customization that Delights

Did you know that the tradition of gifting dates back centuries, with personalized tokens of appreciation creating ripples of joy across time? Today, this art has taken on new dimensions, allowing you to delight your customers with personalized gifts that whisper their name.

Monograms, custom artwork, and engraved products are your canvas. Imagine a sleek leather notebook, elegantly monogrammed, adorned with a heartfelt message that speaks volumes about your gratitude.

Know a wine connoisseur? Good! You can opt for our Gifts of Heaven Holiday Assortment wine basket with personalized wine glasses to give your recipient a truly unique sipping experience. 

Suggested message: It has your name on it, so why not sip on it?! From the vineyards, to the barrels to you, happy holidays”!

2. Experiential Gifts: Creating Lasting Memories

Experiential gifts stand out like stars in a clear night sky among the cacophony of holiday presents. Just as ancient societies shared stories around a warm fire, you can now craft memorable experiences that resonate. Think VIP access to exclusive events, backstage tours, or even an intimate virtual masterclass. Your customers won’t just receive a gift; they’ll create cherished memories they’ll carry for years.

Easy also does it, so opting for a DIY pottery set will ignite the Picasso in every one of your recipients, allowing them to express themselves while trying something new. Works every time!

Suggested message: “Picasso’s office called, they need a new masterpiece. Up for the challenge? Happy art-ing”!

With so many options to choose from, it is good to take a step back and first decide what types of holiday gifts you would like to send.

3. Thoughtful and Useful Gifts: Practicality Meets Meaning

The holiday season is filled with joyous chaos, so imagine gifting your customers something that not only warms their hearts but also simplifies their lives. High-quality stationery sets or tech gadgets that marry form and function can be holiday gifts the Grinch can’t help but steal – and your customers will be delighted to have them.

Picture a sleek wireless charging pad that keeps their devices powered, a JBL Bluetooth speaker for the bands that make them dance, high-quality Tumi travel carry-on cases, or Apple AirTag travel set, accompanied by a cheerful message that brightens their day. The possibilities are endless. 

Suggested message: “…And the most used gift award goes too… Me, I’m the gift and I’m all yours. Happy holidays”!

4. Surprise and Delight Gifts: The Joy of Unexpected Surprises

The spirit of the holiday season thrives on surprises, and gifting is no exception. Embrace the joy of anticipation by presenting your customers with subscription boxes, unexpected upgrades, or limited-edition collectibles. Picture a subscription to a curated book club that transports them to new worlds every month, accompanied by a playful message that hints at the adventures that await.

We suggest our recipient fav, the Unwrap Joy gift basket, the ultimate assortment of crackers, cookies, gourmet nibbles and chocolates, perfect for waving the ‘happy holidays’ flag.

Suggested message: “1 – 2, buckle your shoes, 3 – 4, there’s a knock on the door, 5 – 6, we saw this and thought of you, 7 – 8, an adventure awaits, 9 – 10, we hope you like it. Happy Holidays!

5. Philanthropic Gifts: Giving Back with Purpose

In an age where purpose-driven actions speak volumes, philanthropic gifts are the embodiment of meaningful giving. Incorporating donations, partnerships, or socially responsible products can create a lasting impact that resonates with your customers’ values. Imagine gifting a tree planted in their name, contributing to a greener world, and including a heartfelt note that expresses how this gift echoes your shared commitment.

Giftsenda’s ‘donate your gift’ option is the perfect way to drive philanthropic awareness. Simply add “forward your gift to make someone else’s festive season as sparkly as yours” to your gift invite, and they can choose to forward the proceeds of their gifts. We have a list of organizations that would be happy to receive these donations.
