Corporate hampers: The ideal Christmas gift solution

Author: Jackie   Date Posted:29 October 2010 

Christmastime is one of the best times of the year. Families and friends get together to celebrate, eat drink and be merry, and most people this time of year have a couple of weeks off work to rest and regenerate, ready to start the new year with a bang. This is generally because most companies close for a short period over Christmas and the year is usually concluded by management giving gifts to employees and clients to say thanks. So what do you get your clients, the people who contribute to your success?

Not too over the top   

Purchasing gifts for staff is easier as the motive behind the gift is different to that of a gift for a client. When it comes to buying gifts for clients you want to thank them for their loyalty to your company as without them you may not be as profitable, however you also want to ensure they will not take their business elsewhere and be inclined to maintain their relationship with your company. You may want to remind them of your current products or give them a sneak preview of any new products to come as from a marketing point of view this will increase possible sales in the new year, office calendars and other equipment with your company logo is a nice subtle touch and can be added to other items to make a larger gift. Keeping within a budget that correlates to the size of your company is advisable and a good way to do this is to look at buying Christmas hampers.

A hamper of goodies for every business budget

Gift hampers are a great way to say thanks and show appreciation for any special occasion, and Christmastime is one of the best times to give a hamper. In a variety of shapes and sizes to suit different budgets they are full of treats to suit every taste and will be a greatly appreciated gift at Christmas when treats are commonplace. If you have had office equipment made up with the company logo to keep your business fresh in the minds of your clientele, why not add these to Christmas hampers and include them with gifts of gourmet delicacies, delicious nibbles, maybe a bottle of red or white wine and a gift voucher.

Not only is offering corporate hampers as a Christmas gift a savvy business decision, it is a way of boosting client morale with a practical gift that shows you have put some thought into your way of saying thanks at Christmastime.
