There is simply no end to the possibilities of making clients, employees and partners happy in simplest gestures and economical means.
Giving novelty items as corporate gifts is one such way. Products like shirts, jackets, caps, keychains, ballpens, stationery, notepads, mugs, and calendars as incentive for a job well done, for observing regular events like Christmas and birthdays, during company occasions like anniversaries make company stakeholders feel important and appreciated. These items are also good corporate promotional gifts that are useful in everyday routines. Gadgets and techno products like USB, earphones, cellular phone covers, powerbanks, mobile speakers, and a host of other techno products have also become trendy, extremely essential and necessary. As corporate gift items, they also communicate a company’s ability to recognize and cope with changing needs and times. In terms of apparel, dri-fit materials, hooded jackets, sweatshirts can all be used casually on a daily basis as well as for running, jogging and other physical activities have also become popular corporate gift and promotional items in Singapore and show a company’s concern for well being. Environment-friendly items like recyclable bags or apparels produced under fair labor conditions are also in vogue in Singapore since they show the company’s sense of social responsibility and awareness of emerging social concerns which are modern virtues that appeal to the public. Of course, fruits or wine baskets remain classic corporate gift items in Singapore.
But of course, there is only so much a company can do to choose items that are unique. Probably every company has already given shirts, jackets, pens, notepads, bags, USBs, earphones or techno products and many people now find them stale no matter the impressive quality or unique design. If at all, these corporate gift items, due to pure saturation can still be ‘not special’. Imagine receiving a dozen pens or half a dozen shirt or three USBs on Christmas? Sometimes, the option to be completely unique is an option to be considerably classy or pricey.
But there are still more economical options. Corporate gifts need not be expensive especially since you want to reach a broader audience which means needing a considerable number of items which may be costly for the company. Instead gift need not be expensive, but be of high value. Novelty and handmaid bags and table paraphernalia are not necessarily expensive corporate gift ideas but they are not typically mass produced items also and are therefore high value to say little of the fact that they are truly unique gifts.
But nothing beats customized or personalized corporate gifts. Whether jackets or gadgets, umbrella or paperweight, environment-friendly bag or shirt, personalizing a gift increases their value twice-fold and ultimately communicate individuals’ recognition and a personal touch. Who does not appreciate a simple gift with your name or photo in it? And of course, customized or personalized corporate gift items no matter how simple of common the item is, becomes unique and valuable.
Again corporate gifts need not be expensive but they must be of value. Even sentimentally. And hitting the right cord with the public goes a long way in likewise establishing and maintaining not just the image of but a company’s own value in the lives of their stakeholders and the broader public.
