About six in 10 companies say they plan to share their holiday cheer this year with a wide range of logoed gifts, says the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI).
Looking for ways to acknowledge leading customers and promising prospects? Consider things that can be easily shared. A little can go a long way! According to the ASI survey, most plan to spend an average of $43 on gifts like food baskets or wine bottles branded with a company logo. Of course, there are options for every budget.
Pen/pencil sets and other desk accessories are perennial favorites among staff as recognition for accomplishments and service. ASI reports that food and beverages as well as logoed apparel, like shirts, hats and jackets are welcome recognition, too. Also consider:
- Calendars – These are versatile gifts for business contacts. When branded with your company name and logo, recipients will have a year-long reminder of you and your services. Calendars are also practical because they can be distributed for several weeks before and after the holiday season and still be considered timely.
- Custom Memo Pads or Stationery – Memo pads and stationery are functional logoed gifts that can be used throughout the year. Personalized with the recipient’s name, initials or other individual expression enhances the value of this token of appreciation. Incorporating a customer’s personal hobby or interest into the design makes the notepads or stationery unique and shows you have put time and thought into the gift.
- Gift with Labels or Tags – Any gift becomes more personal when customized with a label or tag. From floral arrangements to gift baskets, tastefully labeling or adding a hang tag with your name or logo and a special message helps distinguish your gift from others.
- Cards – Customized holiday cards and gifts add a distinctive touch that will be noticed. While acknowledgement is especially important during the holidays, you can also surprise your best customers with a small gift at other times during the year for a feel-good gesture that lasts.
