The holidays? Already?
Now is the time to start prepping for the holiday season!
(And no, I’m not one of those people who is putting up their decorations already, even though Costco is insisting that I should.)
Whether you are getting in the holiday spirit or not, it’s time to start talking to your customers about their holiday orders! Ordering ahead is a crucial part of planning, especially to account for any last-minute delays.
Corporate gifting is a great way for your customers to show their employees appreciation for all their dedication throughout the year. Staff appreciation and job satisfaction go hand in hand, and a small token of gratitude is worth the investment.
Another great way your customers can show appreciation is to send gifts to their best and most loyal clients. Remind them that a simple gift can show their clients how much they value their business. Clients with an emotional connection to a brand have a 306% higher lifetime value. Source: Sendoso
Now that you know how to sell your customers on the value behind gifting, let’s dive into some trending items that would be a hit for the holiday season!
Top Holiday Gifts of 2022
A Waterproof Wireless Speaker
Whether at the lake or cooking in the kitchen, everyone loves to kick back and jam to some tunes! Luckily, this speaker can even blast music without skipping a beat when splashed with water.
A soft sherpa blanket is definitely on my holiday list. This is the perfect gift for the wintertime. (Yes, even for us Texan residents.) Your customers can personalize this bundle of comfort with their company logo to make a wonderful employee gift.
Pine Tree Planter Kit
This planter kit is so unique and themed perfectly for the holiday season. Each pot is packaged in a recycled kraft gift box and includes one soil pod, one seed packet, one wooden stake, and instructions. Your customers can watch their brand “grow” with a little holiday magic.
Bamboo Cutting Board
Help your customers slice through the competition with a handy bamboo cutting board. This is a promo item I would use daily! They can engrave it with a holiday greeting or company logo to make a wonderful holiday gift for any company.
Burt’s Bees Essentials
This is starting to look like my own personal shopping list, but this is an item I love and get in my stocking every year. The Burt’s Bees Essentials Kit is a lifesaver for cracked hands and feet, and dry lips.
Be sure to start reaching out to your customers to get ahead of the game (and possible delays) to order their holiday gifts now. After all, the early bird gets the worm!
