How to Choose the Right Corporate Gifting Company for Your Business

Trusting someone else to make an impression on your behalf can be scary, especially if you’re asking them to make an impression on your clients or employees. That is why it is important to take your time when choosing a corporate gifting company to ensure that you find the right one. Here are a few things to consider when evaluating which corporate gifting company is right for your business. 

Decide what matters most

Whether you’re looking to buy employee or client gifts, it’s important to first prioritize what matters most to you and any others who may be involved in the project. Asking yourself and any others who may influence your decision questions like the ones below can help clarify what’s important: 

  • What do you hope to accomplish by sending these gifts? 
  • Which company values do you want the gift to communicate?
  • Which items do you definitely want to include? 
  • Which items should definitely not be included? 
  • Do you want to include branded items? 
  • How do you want the gift recipient to feel when they open the gift? (Appreciated, impressed, happy, etc.) 

Read the reviews

Reading the reviews of a company can save you in so many ways, especially if you've never worked with them! Diving into reviews can give you an idea on how reliable they are and can save you a lot of time, effort, and money.

Get to know the front runners

Once you’ve done some Googling and narrowed down the leaders of the pack, dive deeper into each company. You may want to start by looking at their “About” page to get an understanding of their values, but you can also creep social media, download case studies, or even reach out and ask for examples of past work to figure out which is the best fit for your needs. Getting a feel for the company’s values, learning more about the vendors that they use most often, and even just following the online can give you a great idea of whether or not the prospective corporate gifting vendor is right for your business. 

Consider their values

Finding a trustworthy vendor who can bring your corporate gift ideas to life is one thing, but finding one that aligns with your company values can bring the gifting experience to a whole new level! Take stock of your company’s values and do your best to find a corporate gift company that aligns with them.
