Every year, when the holiday season comes around, there is a mad rush to get everything done. With year-end goals, increased social gatherings, and coworkers taking time off, plenty of things to worry about already exist. Let alone worrying whether or not your boss will be getting up on stage to sing karaoke at the company holiday party. (Yikes.)
On top of everything, did you remember to set aside enough time to select, decorate, approve, and ship your thoughtful holiday gifts? It could be too late if you are just starting this process in November!
Rather than add to an already stressful season, why not begin planning your holiday gift orders sooner rather than later?
7 Reasons to Start Planning Corporate Holiday Gifts Now
The gifts will come across as thoughtful rather than obligatory.
Many gifts sent during the holiday season, especially from businesses, can come across as an obligation - an expected gesture. Making your corporate gifts thoughtful and personal takes a little extra time for selection and planning. Whether sending a gift earlier in the season or allowing additional time to ship early in the new year (rather than over the busy holidays) will ensure that your gifts are well-curated, thoughtful, and high-quality.
You’re spending a chunk of money on these company gifts. Why lower the impact by rushing things? Allowing for extra time helps ensure better gifts overall.
You’ll make a more significant impact.
Whenever your company gifts ship out or arrive to your recipients, planning now will allow you to choose gifts that show you genuinely care. If corporate gifts arrive early, folks will have a high bar set for any other gifts they receive this year. If they come right on time for the holidays, they’ll know you thought of everything this year! If they arrive early in the new year, it’ll be a wonderful and unexpected surprise.
Either way, planning corporate gifts now will help you make a unique and lasting impression.
Your investment will be safer.
Considering how much people travel around the holiday season and the chance of shipment delays due to weather or supply chain issues, why risk losing a valuable investment? The holiday season is the busiest time of year for shipping & receiving. Plan early, and you’re planning to increase the protection of your investment in company gifts.
You will get the gifts you want.
The pandemic significantly disrupted the supply chain, and many companies that make products that we sell are still recovering. Planning early will ensure that gift inventory won’t run out as orders increase during the busy holiday season.
The gifts can be more customized.
Rather than scrambling to figure out what to add to your company gift boxes, you’ll have your pick of a wide range of gift combinations! On top of that, you’ll be able to do even more customization - whether decorating products with your logo, adding a personal message printed on the inside of the box, including custom tissue paper, and so much more. Starting now will make it so you can customize your corporate gift boxes to your heart’s desire!
Stress will be less.
