‘Tis the Season for Giving

Holiday celebrations are all about making others feel good, and what feels better than knowing you have helped someone in need? A great way to bring your employees together during the holidays is through charitable giving. Organize your team to sponsor a local family that cannot afford gifts this year, or collect toys to donate to a children’s center.

We try to support those less fortunate throughout the year, and always enjoy seeing photos and reading stories about the happy recipients (like those you see below).

If you add a giving element to your holiday celebration, we’re sure you’ll feel the same way!

“Well, our trip to Kenya was a delightful success! Many of the pens and pencils went to St. Gerald Children’s Centre, Nyeri, Kenya. The 120 children were very happy to get them. I wish it was possible to get a picture of kids with pencils where the joy was still in their faces…Thanks again for the pens and pencils, and for the shipping!”

Holiday Gifts for employees and for customers!

How can you show your appreciation for all the hard work your employees put forth all year? Or how much you appreciate your customers for being the integral part of you and your businesses success? Typically, many companies choose the holiday time at the end of the year to show their gratitude – either through holiday parties, company outings, employee gifts, or customer appreciation gifts.

But what is the ideal item or gesture? Often times business owners, especially small businesses struggle to find the balance between cost and quality. Budgets are tight, especially this year, and being able to express your gratitude without breaking the bank is a tightrope walk almost every business owner is familiar with.

The answer doesn’t have to be a compromise on either side though! With a little thought, many companies will find that they can offer a low-cost AND personal gift for everyone on their list! Personalized products offer the ability to show your customers and employees how much you care – adding that extra touch of class! Mugs, high-value pens, and calendars are the perfect way to give them a gift that will last – and remind them all year that you were thinking of them – so they think of you when it’s needed most! Filling a mug with candy or popcorn is a great way to dress up a simple gift. Putting a quality pen in a small stocking will add a bit of cheer! Calendars are always a great gift this time of year – just as last year’s calendars are running out!

No matter what you choose, it’s always the thought that counts – so make sure your gifts reflect just how much thought you put into your much-appreciated employees and customers. For more holiday ideas, click here.
