Top tips for Christmas corporate gifting

If you’ve been tasked with finding the perfect gift on behalf of your company this year, we’re here to help! With so many different options, our Spicers’ Little Helpers have pulled together a list of top things to think about, helping to ensure your gifts surprise and delight clients and staff this Christmas.

Research the company

Over the next few weeks, we know that your inbox will start to fill up with lots of companies trying to sell you the ‘next big thing your clients will love!’ Make sure that you choose a company with a proven track record for quality and who can demonstrate credible customer satisfaction scores. That way you can rest assured that all your requests, from specific deliveries to budget requirements can be successfully met. Before you order, make sure that you have a contact name and number for whoever is responsible for your order and a written confirmation.

Is it suitable? 

Be sure that you know who it is you are buying for. If you have personal information such as knowing they’re fanatical about a sports team, a lover of red wine or have a nut allergy then you can really tailor the gift to the recipient. Matching the gift to their tastes demonstrates that a lot of thought and effort has been made.  

Leave yourself enough time!

Christmas will creep up on you before you know it! So starting your Christmas gift planning now is definitely worthwhile. In the run up to Christmas delivery deadlines and availabilities will get tighter, meaning you may incur unexpected charges for ‘express’ delivery services. Plan early to save money and avoid the stress of worrying about whether the gift will be delivered on time. 

Delivery address details 

Will it be to an office or personal address? Have you checked that the address hasn’t changed? Have you considered your recipient’s holiday schedule? Make sure you check that they will still be in the office on your selected delivery date. Also, be practical! If the recipient takes public transport to get into work, will it be easy to carry home?  

Establish a budget 

Once you have been assigned the task of finding the perfect gift, ensure you have a finalised budget to work with and a set list of recipients to cater for. Check whether the budget allocated is to be split evenly or whether you need to create tiered groups. There are a lot of great ‘early bird’ deals that make luxuries affordable, so be sure to check out the discounts available.
