Tips for a Successful Festive Gifting Season

Memorable employee and client gifting

Who doesn't love talking about Christmas in September??

With the festive season slowly approaching we thought now would be the perfect time to share our recommendations for a stress-free festive season.  Selecting gifts for the entire office is never easy, especially around the festive season - whether you are finding gifts for employees or clients we are here to help.

The festive season is a busy time in both people’s personal lives and work lives, meaning the time to select and plan gifts for internal employees and external clients may be limited. We take the stress out of the festive season by putting together suggested gift boxes based on the information you provide us with.

Timing & Planning

Timing in gifting is a critical element to showcasing a well thought out and meaningful gift. The earlier the better we always say for all Christmas requests. An early order means you have more time to liaise with us around the items you are gifting, eliminating items that may not align with your clients or employees and ensuring every item is selected with the recipient in mind.

An early Christmas order also ensures you have access to all of our products - meaning you have the entire store to choose from! Our wide range of items makes the selection process easier as we definitely have something for everyone. A last minute gift can not guarantee the same variety of items will be available - and we don't want you to miss out on any of our amazing products!!

When selecting gifts here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Your relationship with the recipient. Will your gift be formal / informal? Are you trying to build a strong relationship with them - if so consider something personal you know about them as an individual. Is it for an employee to show your appreciation for their hard work throughout the year?

Considering the why behind your gifts helps us put together the perfect gift for your recipients!

2. A useful gift is always appreciated. From our relationships with clients feedback has shown gift recipients love a useful gift! Our most popular gifts that have been found to extremely useful include or range of mugs and our sock collection! Rather than a generic branded water bottle recipients have loved receiving something unique that isn't a marketing tool for their workplace.

3. A thoughtful gift leaves a lasting impression. During the festive season your clients and employees may receive a range of gifts, so it is extremely important to ensure your gift will stand out. We offer a range of local products that are unique to Born & Bred and will stand out amongst the array of generic food hampers sent to the office.

We would love to hear from you, to see how we can assist with your festive gifting needs.
