Corporate gifting is a crucial business strategy since delivering gifts to staff, clients, and customers forge an emotional bond between the organization and the recipient. As per studies, corporate gifts are not only a pleasant way to celebrate, express gratitude, and implement employees' appreciation but also boost your business outcome.
Think about it, when you receive a physical gift from someone, it prompts you to value the gift and therefore the person even more. You feel a sense of ownership over the gift and that translates to a stronger connection with them. Since you’re genuinely impressed by the gesture, you’ll always associate the gift giver with a positive feeling. Tapping into this strong psychological advantage is exactly the need in a professional scenario.
Whether it’s about nurturing a strong relationship with your clients, prospects, or employees, unique and innovative gestures are exactly what you need. As people remember your brand, even more, business satisfaction, ROI and outcomes increase multifold.
What do the statistics say?

So what can you do?
Say no to conventional mugs and t-shirts! We’ve noticed employees and clients are spoilt for choice. People are moving towards items that are both practical and environmentally sustainable. Hence companies have a huge responsibility in this regard.
As companies move toward minimizing their carbon footprint in as many ways as possible, choosing eco-friendly corporate gifts while keeping them non-boring is the way to go. There’s a growing trend in which corporate companies are gifting thoughtfully curated appreciation care packs that are different from the normal mugs and t-shirts to wow their employees and clients.
Our suggestion? Gift a variety of gifts that your recipients can keep and use for a longer time. Eco-friendly, reusable, and reducing items landing up in dustbins like flowers and too many wrappings!
So it’s a no-brainer that unique, purpose-driven, eco-friendly presents are here to stay. It can be as simple as switching out a chocolate gift pack with a potted plant or sustainable toiletries.
