Marriott Fremont Hotel Delights VIP Guests with Premium Gifts

Our client needed customized gifts to present to their top tier guests and Brand Spirit was there to provide them with branded padfolios, fun fidget cubes & spinners, and sleek vacuum thermoses.

Marriott Fremont Hotel in Silicon Valley, California is one of the most popular full-service hotels in the area that’s perfectly located near many Bay Area attractions, including Napa Valley and the high-tech headquarters of Silicon Valley and Santa Clara.  

The influx of guests was expected with the new remodeled units and the holidays in full swing. And to stay with the young and hip crowd of Silicon Valley, VIP guests were treated to a set of trendy branded gifts to make them feel even more special while staying in their suites.

Two of the most exciting and hot custom gifts on the list were the fidget cubes and spinners that jives with the “always in the scene” guests.

To stay on-brand, Marriott Fremont chose the shade of red that was closest to their colors.

 

Of course, every fancy international hotel is always ready with notepads for their guests. The client chose a beautiful non-woven curve padfolio in black and red to keep true to the brand colors. The folio has a convenient sleeve for loose notes, cards, and other documents.

Other custom gifts the client has also ordered in the past are USB Pens and vacuum thermoses that were also presented to guests and VIPs. As you can see, they have maintained the clean and simple style of their gifts even from way back.

    

Guests were delightfully surprised and showed much appreciation for the premium gifts they received.

Beautiful Incentive Gifts to Increase Sales & Promote Your Cafe

We can all learn from Starbucks. They made collecting stickers a premium experience for customers and they’ve found an effective tool for repeat sales during the holidays on top of their other offers.

If you’re a start-up cafe and are looking to gain more awareness while increasing sales, running an incentive program for a month or so should be one of the strategies to explore. The coffee giant has perfected their program and other businesses have been following suit with their own spin on the mechanics of each incentive program.

Add a few twists to your incentive program other than the usual “buy X number of stuff to get Y.” Get creative and think of it as an experience for your customer. Perhaps instead of getting points for buying a product for themselves, why grant points when they buy something for a friend while in the store? It’s important to know your demographic and research on what they care about.

As a cafe, travel tumblers would make the perfect incentive gifts to entice product purchase but also put your business name on something people use everyday and an item them will keep for a long time.

Here are a few unique customizable drinkware your cafe might use as an incentive gift.
