Tis the season to start planning! Okay, we know it’s not even fall yet but Christmas and the winter holidays truly are just around the corner. Although we are definitely not ready to say goodbye to the sunshine, it is our duty as Gift Experts to remind you that now is the time to start working on your corporate holiday gifts. Whether it be for employees, clients, vendors, network connections (or all of the above!) we want to support you every step of the way.
Below are 3 reasons why you should get in the festive spirit now:
Secure your Spot
Although there is no such thing as too many gifts, there are only so many hours in a day. Unfortunately, that means we are limited to the number of clients we can accept each year and historically our corporate calendar fills up fast. If you are looking for customized gift boxes, or an order size of 20+ gifts we do require a booking through our Corporate Gifting page.
It pains us to be a scrooge that says no to a client, and that’s why we encourage you to contact us early at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help make your holiday gifting wishes come true.
Avoid Product Delays
COVID-19 is still putting a strain on supply chains, which adds an extra challenge for sourcing and securing the perfect products for your gifts. By planning early, it gives us and our product partners ample time to forecast accordingly. If interested in designing a gift that includes custom branded content, be sure to allow extra time for perfection.
For large orders we recommend providing at least four weeks’ notice in advance. Orders less than 20 can be done directly through our website by shopping the predesigned Gift Collections or Design a Gift section. But keep in mind this is the busiest time of the year and products can sell out quick. Large or small, please feel free to send us a note with any questions you may have!
Send Gifts Early
Last year shipping carriers experienced high volume and inevitable delays during the holidays. Given the unknown for this year we encourage all clients to plan accordingly. Therefore, please allow some wiggle room for gifts that need to be mailed. If you will be hand delivering them, why not kickstart the holiday cheer by giving them early?
Whichever method you choose, an early delivery helps to ensure gifts are received before employees leave and unplug for vacation.
