Kearney, MO (PressExposure) April 06, 2012 -- During the holidays the promotional products industry kicks into high gear. Companies are searching for unique imprinted promotional products that look more expensive than they actually are.
What is your primary goal this holiday season? Do you want to say thank you to your clients for their business? Is your intent to acknowledge your clients for purchases they have made and provide a gift of obligation designed to encourage them to continue purchasing from you and hopefully giving you more business in the future?
Maybe you wish to thank a number of people at one company. If you send a gift to an entire company, division, or department you might want to send a food gift basket, fruit basket, cookies, or a large tin filled with popcorn. These are practical choices employees can share.
If you are providing a more personal gift to the person you do the most business with you might want to consider an item that bears your company's logo. You might want to choose an imprinted promotional item that will remain at the office where everyone can view them. You may also consider an imprinted promotional item that will be taken home and enjoyed. Maybe a coaster set glassware, BBQ utensils, or an embroidered shirt or jacket. Another option might be something they could use in their car, such as a nice travel mug, a leather computer case, personalized padfolio, or travel bag.
Ultimately you must decide what is your objective? Do you want to give something your client will use daily at home or at work, or do you want something that they will enjoy for a specific event like a round of golf?
Before purchasing anything you might want to check with the HR department and make sure that the individuals at the company may accept gifts. Many companies have policies that do not allow employees to accept gifts or they may have to share all gifts with other employees.
