When is a Good Time to Give a Corporate Gift?

When to Send a Corporate Gift

In determining when it makes the most sense for your company to give gifts, we recommend selecting strategic opportunities where a gift is most appropriate and impactful. It can minimize the special-ness of receiving the gift and become expensive if you’re giving them too often.

When establishing a cadence for corporate gifting, we recommend identifying the occasions where a gift makes sense specifically for customers versus employees. The nature of their relationship with your business will help you prioritize the most opportune holidays or events to commemorate with a gift.

While gifting during the Christmas season is the most common, there are other opportunities throughout the year where giving a gift can make a meaningful impact on the recipient. Finding more unexpected moments can help make your gifts stand out from the competition’s.

For example, the days leading up to Thanksgiving is an ideal time to surprise clients and employees with a gift as your company’s way of giving ‘thanks.’ Distributing your gifts around this holiday enables you to get ahead of your competitors and free up time around Christmas as your company wraps things up for year-end.
