Let us help you choose the perfect holiday gift for the important people to your business. You can give a heartfelt gift and promote your business at the same time with promotional products. Read on for some ideas about what to choose from for everyone on your Christmas list. For Your Employees There are quite a few little gifts that you can choose from to show your employees you appreciate the work they do and their efforts to help make your business the success it is today. For Your Clients, Customers, Partners and Strategic Alliances Customers are the cornerstone of your business, and this is the perfect time of year to thank them for giving you their business. Remember those special people who serve your market and refer clients throughout the year. Referral gifts at year end are a perfect token of your gratitude. Custom logo products carry goodwill and appreciation to your loyal customers and the people who contribute to your success. Food Gifts Many of our clients give the gift of food. Baskets are available containing fresh-baked cookies, gourmet candy, specialty cakes, fresh roasted nuts, flavored popcorn, dipped pretzels, and other sweet confections. We even customize fortune cookies with your special message. Our gifts can serve from one person to an entire conference room. We customize with your special branding, making it professional and memorable. Drinkware We are always on the go. Drinkware is a personal gift that everyone appreciates. This year’s popular drinkware item is the YETI® tumbler. We offer the brand name and promotional pricing on other styles that have the same stay-warm functionality as the YETI. Giving the gift to a travel mug or tumbler with a Starbucks gift card can make your employees and clients feel special. Power Banks and Tech Devices Once again, power banks are popular. We can’t live without our iPhones and Droids. Keep them charged with power banks. With your company name and logo emblazoned on it, you’re sure to be top of mind every time their battery is low. Bluetooth speakers, virtual reality headsets, mini-drones, wireless Bluetooth earbuds, HD cameras, and remote control drones with cameras top the list of emerging trends for tech gifts that can be branded with your logo. Apparel – Logo Embroidered or Screenprinted The number one gift for employees is apparel. It is also the number one gift for events like golf outings. At this time of year, we keep our embroiderers and screenprinters busy. Custom knit beanies (one size fits all), full zip hoodies, and waterproof jackets are popular this year once again. Blankets – Embroidered Another favorite gift this year is the Sherpa Blanket. There is great messaging in giving a blanket – cozy warmth, comfort and protection. The blankets have a suede soft-touch on one side and fluffy fleecy ultra-soft material on the other side. These blankets embroider beautifully and are easy care with regular laundering. Ours comes in a bag with rope handles. These are just a few of the most popular holiday gift ideas that you can give your customers, business partners, and employees this upcoming holiday season. And we add our own special touch – custom packaging, wrapping, photo greeting cards make your gift unique. Need additional ideas?
