Festive Touches for Promotional Gifts
The end of the year is a prime time to give promotional gifts. It’s natural to thank your customers for their business at the end of the year, and it is also the Christmas season. Promotional items don’t always make great Christmas gifts on their own. But with a little imagination you can create holiday gifts that incorporate promotional items to show your customers how much you appreciate them.
- Mugs are a very practical promotional item. People will use them, and every time they do it will further your branding efforts. But a mug with your logo is missing something. Why not fill those mugs up? You can add some festive Christmas chocolates, spices for mulled wine and a gingerbread man to make your branded mugs stand out. Specialty coffee or a variety of herbal teas are also perfect extras to pop in a mug. People will enjoy the treats and remember your thoughtfulness in the new year.
- USB memory sticks are a great promotional product that people can carry with them. Not all promotional items make good Christmas gifts. To hit the mark, an item must be valuable to the recipient. A ballpoint pen is an excellent promotional item, but not a great gift. A memory stick, on the other hand, has enough value to impress your clients or customers. And if you put it in a tiny Christmas stocking with a small chocolate Santa, you are sure to impress with your clever creativity and holiday spirit.
- Everyone can use bags at this time of year for shopping and travel. Is your business giving away promotional bags? Whether they are simple tote bags for shopping or sturdy duffel bags for travel, taking a moment to add a festive bow and attach an ornament is an easy way to add a festive touch. And if you want to put something in the bag, people will appreciate that.
Whatever your company is giving out mark the festive season and the end of the year, presentation matters. Adding a simple stick-on bow is quick and inexpensive, but it transforms your promotional item to a festive present and adds some holiday cheer. How far you want to take this idea depends on whether you are giving out thousands of items to retail customers or 100 gifts to your largest clients.
