Top Corporate Holiday Custom Gifts for Executives

Executive holiday gifts make a big difference. As a brand who will inevitably collaborate and partner with other businesses, the most crucial process of launching a successful business is building strong relationships. 

The holidays are the perfect time to go the extra mile and show business partners, as well as clients, that you appreciate your professional ties. Gift-giving during the holidays is both a mix of art and strategy. While it’s okay to show appreciation, it has to be within professional bounds. 

As a rule of thumb, corporate gift giving needs to be 3 things:

  1. Premium and of top quality
  2. Under $25 
  3. Culturally appropriate

We’ve written a blog about the Do’s and Don’ts of Gift Giving you might find useful.

Exhibitpro Gets Some Cool Swag To Communicate New Tagline

We really enjoy helping our clients come up with fresh concepts to promote their brands. Exhibitpro, a state of the art exhibit production company, was looking for giveaway ideas to promote the theme of their new tagline.  These custom branded products were to be used at giveaways at an open house event at their shiny, new corporate headquarters.

After multiple ideas were presented, the client choose two awesome gifts. The first one was Gadget Grips DOTS which are removable, stick-on buttons that turn an iPhone’s ‘in-y” button into an ‘out-y”.  These DOTS are perfect for showcasing their cool logo and also keep their logo right where it will be seen all day long…on people’s phones.  You can get much better marketing than that. To communicate the new branding and tagline, we customized the packaging with their full color artwork.

As a second, higher-end gift, Exhibitpro chose these classy, multi-functional, portable power banks.  These handy gadgets feature a brushed satin black metallic aluminum case, a 2000 mAh Li-ion battery for charging your mobile phone and also function as a remarkably bright flashlight.  Their logo looked stunning in metallic silver ink printed onto the satin black aluminum casing.

Do’s & Don’ts: The Art of Corporate Gift Giving

The first rule of corporate gift giving is, it’s NOT personal gift giving. It’s crucial to keep in mind that the kind of gift you send will reflect directly on your business.

There certainly is an art to this client management practice and once you hit the nail in the head, your business is sure to benefit exponentially.

do's and don'ts of corporate gift giving

No logos on holiday gifts

While it might be tempting to add your logo on a premium holiday gift, sincerity can be best achieved if you leave it out. Instead, we recommend attaching a personal hand-written greeting card with your name and business. Adding printed materials like custom holiday cards, paper bags, or tote bags are acceptable locations for logos on business gifts.

Things to consider when gifting food items

Candies, pastries, artisan goods, and fruit baskets are popular corporate gifts all year round. When deciding on food gifts, be mindful of clients’ allergies and factor in how and when the package would arrive. Make sure that the gift arrives at optimum state.

The IRS Factor

Some companies are not allowed to accept gifts and your brand has to know which clients are covered by this rule. Business gifts are tax-deductible up to $25 per person for the tax year. Packaging, shipping and delivery are not part of this total. This is not a one-size-fits-all guideline. IRS publication 463 can offer more specifics.

Cultural Sensitivity

Be aware of images and symbolism placed on packaging and on the gifts themselves. Doing basic research about other cultures goes a long way and pays off. If you’re sending to a substantial number of clients, choosing a more generic gift like the Michelin Guide to Restaurants is a safe but high-value gift.

Make a list

Take note of who received gifts, what the gifts were and their costs, and whether they were sent via courier or hand-delivered. This will be helpful for your business’ documentation of spend in case a report needs to be submitted to the finance department.

We at Brand Spirit pride ourselves in providing personalized customer support to help our clients find the best corporate gifts that follow best practices in for many industries.
