Q: How do I find a unique corporate gift?
If your company takes pride in being innovative, odds are you want to think outside the box for truly unique customer appreciation gifts. In order to select the perfect thoughtful gift, you have to start by identifying their needs or interests. That’s just great customer appreciation 101.
In a major study, the Business Gift Satisfaction Survey, business etiquette expert Laura Jennings found that “It’s memorability that drives the connectedness and loyalty that create ROI.” This shows that corporate gifting is only really effective when done right. Research also shows that physical corporate gifts with eye-catching presentations are more memorable than digital items like coupons or access to free content.
So how should you get started with your shopping? A tried and true way to select unique client gift ideas is to shop industry-specific. In addition, try personalizing your gift by including a handwritten note or adding the recipient’s initials or name to the custom gift. It’s the little things that go a long way!
Unique corporate gifts often have “value-add” qualities such as:
- Purchased from woman-owned or minority-owned business
- Locally owned or sourced
- Artisan or handcrafted
- Sustainable certification
- Made in the USA
Also, consider gifts that give back. Customers love knowing that their gift supports a social cause, it makes the customer appreciation moment even more meaningful!
