So you’ve been tasked with the impossible - choosing this year’s corporate gifts. And whether they’re going to your coworkers or your clients, it’s still an important (and dare we say stressful) job. 

The thick and thin of it is this: you have to choose a gift that will be personal (but not too personal), stand the test of time (but not be cheesy) and actually be something they can use (over and over again). How ya feeling now?

All jokes aside, Smiling Tree Gifts have come to your rescue and created a simple, yet effective guide for the perfect corporate gift giving. 

Be Personal

You kind of have to walk a fine line with this one. You want the gift to be personalized but not over-reaching. A rule of thumb - if you had to go digging through someone’s Facebook to find something, you’ve already gone too far. But something like a photo block holder meets the alll the requirements, without going too far. These let the gift recipient proudly display their favorite memories - and who doesn't love that?!

Stand the Test of Time

Gifts that are able to be expanded upon are 10/10, excellent options. For example, the desktop blocks are the perfect way to show your gratitude for loyalty and workplace excellence. Each year, your employees receive an additional block commemorating another work anniversary. Plus, it’s a beautiful desk decoration that will be enjoyed for years to come.

Practical

This one is arguably the easiest qualification to fulfill. Just think about what you would like to get as a gift. If you know your co-worker or client is a beer connoisseur, our personalized bottle opener is not only practical but they are a sure-fire crowd pleaser. Our magnetic name tags are also a perfect gift that will be used time and time again. So, choose custom engraved name tags to ensure your team makes a professional, distinctive, and lasting impression when it matters. Magnetic name tags mean no pin holes, easy on/off, and a lifetime of use.

So, to wrap this all up, choosing the perfect corporate gift can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be. With a little bit of thought and creativity (and our help - duh!), you can be the ultimate gift giver!
