Choosing a Gifting Partner

Choosing a Gifting Partner

The holidays are here again! This is the time of year to show your gratitude and appreciation to the employees, clients, partners, and vendors who have stuck with you through thick and thin. Don’t leave things to the last minute and rush to the discount wine store down the street (you know who you are!) Now is the time to shop around for the right gifting partner and start your holiday gift planning. Here’s a handy checklist to consider while you evaluate your options:

  1. Represent Your Brand
    You are sending a message with the gift you choose. Consider the values of your company, perhaps sustainability, giving back, or buying local. Make sure that your gift is consistent with what’s important to your brand.
  2. Sustainability Goes Beyond the Gift
    You may be purchasing a sustainable gift but don’t forget to consider the packaging materials used as well. Can the materials be recycled or reused?
  3. Presentation Matters
    The first impression is always the most important impression.  Does your gift look good from the moment it is opened?
  4. Make Sure it Tastes as Good as it Looks
    There are plenty of pretty gift baskets out there. But not everything tastes as good as it looks. Are you purchasing your wine and food gifts from a trusted vendor? Ask to view the ingredient lists to make sure there’s no junk!
  5. A Personal Touch Goes a Long Way
    A personalized gift (or even a custom note) goes a long way to return your investment by letting the recipient know that you are specifically thinking of them. What options does your partner offer for a personalized touch? And don’t forget to plan ahead if you want custom packaging or swag, printing can take extra time in the busy holiday season.
