Finding the right item for your company’s promotional holiday gifts and making sure the gifts get the attention you desire can seem like a daunting task. Here are some tips to make sure your token of holiday cheer and appreciation gets noticed!
- Timing is everything – Start shopping early for the best selection. If you start early, chances are you will have an easier time finding a gift that’s just right for your target audience and in the colors and sizes you need. Don’t wait and settle for what’s left in stock on December 15. Plus, some promotional products manufacturers offer extra savings for buying early. This is especially true with food items and dated products like calendars. The earlier you buy, the more money you can save. Planning ahead can ensure you get what you want when you need it at a price that’s right.
- Ribbons, Bags and Bows. Oh my! – Attractive gift packaging makes your gift look upscale. In addition to helping you find the right branded holiday gift, your Vernon representative can help you package it perfectly with logoed gift bags, ribbons, tissue, and other packaging options.
- Delivering your gift – If you are already planning ahead, why not make arrangements to have your gift delivered earlier, too? Plan for delivery prior to Thanksgiving to make your gift no doubt one of the first (if not the very first) to be received. Talk about standing out! Plus, you’ll never have to worry if it made it in time in those last few days before Christmas.
- Make it personal – Delivering your gift in person or adding personal touches can definitely make your gift rise above. Whenever possible, distribute your gifts personally either during a business meeting or with a product delivery. If you have to mail or ship the gift, a handwritten note of thanks will also go far to make a good impression. When is the last time you received a handwritten card from a business partner or associate? Or follow up with a live phone call (not voice message) to make sure the gift was received.
Follow these tips and your branded gifts will be sure to get noticed this holiday season!
