Once upon a time, in a famous old book, a man taught that ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive’. When the gift in question is yet another corporate branded calendar, it’s hard to argue with the assertion.
Thankfully, as the culture of corporate gift giving becomes more widespread, the scope for corporate gift ideas has constantly evolved too; so much so that custom jewellery is now a viable option for showing your thanks and appreciation to both your own staff and your clients.
Rewarding your employees and maintaining relationships with your valued customers aren’t the only benefits to giving custom jewellery as corporate gifts either, as you’re also able to save money by writing off the cost for your corporate tax.
Unless you’re the taxman, it all sounds too good to be true. Either way, it certainly deserves further investigation.
At the end of the year, it’s important to give something back to your hardworking staff, and creative corporate gift ideas always leave a deeper impression than Starbucks gift cards.
The custom jewellery available is one idea for a corporate gift that will surprise and delight in equal measure, and makes a wonderfully unique reward for your employees’ efforts throughout the year.
Although giving jewellery to staff may sound a touch unusual at first, there are certain items that would make wholly appropriate corporate gift ideas. Tie tacks and cufflinks make the perfect present for office staff, and there can even be customized products with your own company logo.
Customise for your customers
When it comes to corporate gift ideas that will make your clients feel special, quality counts. While it goes without saying that there is nothing to worry about on that front with custom jewellery, offering a little more advice to really make your gesture stand out from the crowd of gifts your client might receive.
After spending the time and money on choosing the perfect piece of custom jewellery, it would be a tragedy if the presentation was a letdown. Investing a little more in having the gift professionally wrapped will go a long way towards making sure it wows the recipient, while taking the time to handwrite a card will also add a personal touch.
Speaking of doing things personally, how about delivering it yourself? Your clients know how busy you are, and taking time out of your schedule to deliver their gift is perhaps the biggest extra touch you can add. You will also be there to see their reaction to their custom jewellery first hand.
Give yourself a break
Although we have already established that it is more blessed to give than to receive, you might be wondering if there is anything in this for you other than the warm glow you get from making somebody’s day.
Actually, there is. Whatever corporate gift ideas you may have had, you will be able to save yourself money at the end of the financial year by writing them off with regards to your corporate tax.
This means that if you hadn’t have bought the corporate gifts, some of the money you spent on them would have gone to the taxman anyway. Doesn’t using the money instead to make your corporate gift ideas a reality for your staff and clients sound like a much better idea?
Carats not calendars
For businesses both large and small, personal touches go a long way towards fostering better relationships with both staff and clients, and innovative yet personalised corporate gift ideas are a great way to show that you care.
A branded calendar may be useful for a year, but custom jewellery can help cultivate a long term working relationship, and being able to write off the cost is the ruby-red cherry on top.
