What’s the best way to show appreciation to clients for their business? What about employees for their loyalty? Why a thoughtful corporate gift, of course! A carefully curated basket, a personalized tech item, or a reusable, practical gift consistently makes people feel recognized and valued — whether they're in the office or working from home. Corporate gifts are having an elevated moment, so there’s no time like the present to show your gratitude.
From colleagues to clients, let’s discover 50 of the hottest corporate gifts rolling into 2022.
Any gift given by a company to its staff or customers/clients can be considered a corporate gift. One thing all corporate gifts have in common is respecting the boundaries of professionalism. It should be a thoughtful token that is general enough in nature to not offend, but feels sufficiently personal, acknowledging the unique relationship between the giver and recipient. And considering the last few years the world has had, business gifting should always connect people – whether at home or down the hall.
Internal or external, the right kind of corporate gift should always evoke a positive response to make the employee feel valued and apppreciated. It’s simply a tried-and-true way of bonding directly with your internal audience. Remember that physical gifts are more memorable than anything digital. Requiring your gift to stand out is truly paramount. Lasting impressions lead to brand awareness, paving the way for loyalty and goodwill.
Be sure to give your gift selection the time and attention it deserves. Here are a few items to consider when shopping around:
A handwritten note or a hang tag made out directly to the person by name always makes a gift next level. Try to work in some sort of personalization, no matter your budget.
If you are making a grand gesture, follow up with an item worthy of the way your company feels. There are too many good gift items out there, and your savvy clients and staff will know if you have skimped.
As tempting as it is to slap a logo on every gift, this is about showing gratitude to them, not promoting you. Save the promotional urges for swag bag items.
Research your recipient, internal or external, to find a corporate gift that reflects their personal lives, or maybe even the region in which they live.
Make a list of recipients (staff, clients, service providers, etc.), which will help decide the average price for each gift. Perhaps set giving “tiers” for certain VIPs within your groups.
