The Ultimate Guide to Corporate Gifting

The Ultimate Guide to Corporate Gifting

There is nothing better than a happy employee. But what if you could make your employees even happier? What if you could put a smile on their face by simply giving them a gift?


You might be wondering why this is important—why should you care about making your employees happy? Well, consider this: Studies show that if you make your employees happy, they'll be more likely to do their best work for you. They'll be more satisfied with their job, which means they're more likely to stay with your company long-term! And when they leave, they'll remember how much they enjoyed working with you and will recommend your company (and maybe even recruit new hires).


When choosing a corporate gift, it's also very important to consider the company's culture. What kind of image does the company want to project? What are the company's values? You'll want to choose a gift that aligns with the company's culture so that it is well-received.


Giving corporate gifts to employees can be tricky. You want to show your appreciation for their hard work, but you don't want to overdo it and be seen as trying to buy their loyalty.


Here are some corporate gifting tips and office gift ideas from Suyobo on how to give corporate gifts to employees that will make them feel appreciated without going overboard.


1. Get to know your employees.

The first step in giving corporate gifts to employees is to get to know them. What are their interests? What are their hobbies? Do they love baking, gardening, or are they into sports? What are their favorite things?

The more you know about your employees, the easier it will be to find the perfect gift for them.

2. Consider their job role.

When you're thinking about what corporate gifts to give employees, it's important to consider their job role. What kind of work do they do? What are their responsibilities?

This will help you narrow down your options and find a gift that's both thoughtful and practical.

3. Think about their individual needs.

Every employee is different, so it's important to think about their individual needs when you're choosing corporate gifts. For example, if you have an employee who is always on the go, you might want to consider a gift that's portable and easy to use.

4. Choose a gift that's meaningful.

When you're giving corporate gifts to employees, it's important to choose a gift that's purposeful and worthwhile. This could be something that's related to their hobbies or interests, or something that will make their job easier.

5. Personalize the gift.

Personalizing the gift is a great way to show your employees that you care about them. You can add their name, initials, or even a photo to make the gift more personal.

6. Wrap the gift nicely.

If you want to make a good impression, it's important to wrap the gift nicely. This doesn't have to be anything fancy—just make sure it's presentable and looks like you've put some thought into it.



7. Include a card.

Including a card with your gift is a nice touch. It shows that you took the time to write a personal message, and it gives the recipient something to keep and cherish.

Additional tip: Keep it simple. Don’t overthink it! If you really want to get into the holiday spirit, consider using an expression of gratitude on your gift card. For example, “I hope you enjoy these pens! They’re my favorite color!” could be used as a heartfelt thank-you note on your card. Or if you want to go all out, try this: “These pens are my favorite color! Hope they help you write more clearly tomorrow at work!”


8. Give the gift in person.

If possible, it's always best to give the gift in person. This way, you can ensure that the recipient receives it, and you can answer any questions they may have.



9. Stick to a budget.

When it comes to corporate gifts, it's important to stick to a budget. You don't want to overspend on a gift that is not appreciated. Instead, focus on finding a gift that is both affordable and thoughtful. If you need help in planning and budgeting your corporate gifting, contact us.



10. Choose a practical gift.

While it's always nice to receive a gift that is purely for fun, a practical gift is often more appreciated. Something that the recipient can use in their everyday work life is a great choice. For example, a stylish pen or a new power bank would be a welcome gift for most employees.

Office gifting is an exciting way to bring a little bit of holiday cheer into your workplace. And it’s not just about Christmas—gifts for coworkers are a great way to show you care and make someone feel special, or just to brighten up their day with a thoughtful gift.


Even if corporate gifting is a tricky game, you may want to give the gift that shows your boss or employee that you're on their side, but you also don't want to get in trouble by giving them a gift they don't like. It can be tough, but there are creative and fun ways to make it work!
