CHICAGO, Nov. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays are right around the corner and now is the time to be ordering corporate gifts for employees and clients. Every employee has received a mug with their company logo on it and every company has gotten a basket of mini muffins. Work a little harder to wow constituents this season with a more personal gift.
A company should first consider what image they want to represent - fun and playful or serious and professional. This depends on the type of business. If the business giving the gift is a casino, a quirky restaurant, or a party-planning service, they may have a bit more leeway with sending silly gifts. If the corporation is a law firm, a hospital or a tax professional, they may want to stick to more traditional and classy gifts.
When brainstorming the perfect gift, think of how it can be personalized. A tropical-themed restaurant could give their staff and suppliers a dashboard hula girl. A printing company can send their clients a colorful calendar with their logo discreetly displayed each month. This is something that is always within sight and will keep their business at the top of mind next time the client needs to place an order. These are a great way to give promotional products without being overt.
For playful people who are confined to desks, there are many desktop and office items that are fun, hilarious and memorable. There are magnetic decision makers, which are much like the adult version of a magic eight ball. How about desktop shuffleboard or interesting paperweights, like ones shaped as a flying pig or a mailable brain?
If there are employees or clients that travel often, there are a wide variety of unique travel-related accessories available. There are roadside emergency kits, personalized neck pillows for air travel, or GPS systems. Also consider cases for business cards or PDAs.
For more serious corporate offices, there are many unique desktop and car chargers for cell phones, iPods and other gadgets. Promotional Products offer personalized leather-bound portfolios, modern desk organizers, stylish executive pens and classy business card holders.
When shopping for promotional products during the holiday season, be sure to keep it personal, thoughtful and relate it directly to the business. Doing so leaves a lasting impression and builds business and personal relations.
