This week at Sonic Promos...
We're in the holiday spirit! Well, considering a lot of our clients' holiday gifts require significant advance planning and production time, we've been in the holiday spirit since late September. But that's beside the point.
Wondering if that should be "besides the point"? I was too. Here's your answer.
For every gift idea that was chosen, at least five were not. That's a lot of ideas left on the table! Here are a few of our favorites.
1. Branded Gift Cards for Phone/MP3 Player/Laptop Skins
Custom skins are a really neat product, but it's not easy to do them as a gift for multiple individuals. It's nearly impossible to decide on one design that's going to suit everyone's unique taste, and you also don't know what kind of laptop or phone they use. A branded gift card is the perfect solution. Your branding goes on the card, and the recipient can redeem it for the skin of their choice.
2. A Customized Coffee Table Book
A good book has always been my go-to gift idea. More specifically, I like giving colorful coffee table books or cook books with beautiful photos- the kind that you would never buy for yourself but still enjoy having. Nowadays, there are customization options available that make books a good choice for branded, corporate gifts too. Choose a title that relates to your business or that would interest your client base, and decorate it with a custom belly band, book jacket, front cover imprint or insert page. I suggest a coffee table book, because it's something that the entire office can enjoy. Their clients will enjoy it too if it finds a home in the office's lobby or reception area.
3. Edible Gifts with a Leave-Behind
Food towers, chocolates and gourmet snacks are always a popular choice for corporate gifts. As employees sample the goods and ride their sugar high, your company's name will undoubtedly be the subject of positive chatter. The only downside to edible gifts? They get eaten! It's a good idea to include a branded piece- something more permanent than a card. We suggest an engraved cutting board, decorated drinkware or a small set of kitchen knives that will be be seen and used long after the last chocolate-covered almond is consumed.
