End of Year Gifts: When should you get started?

End of Year Gifts: When should you get started?

We know it might sound a tad unusual to talk about end-of-year corporate gifting while we’re still cold and rugged up, but trust us, now is the time to start thinking about it. 

Leaving your corporate gifts to the last minute will come with the biggest gifting-headache you didn’t ask for and can make the whole experience a stressful nightmare. So, when clients ask me when to start prepping for their end-of-year corporate gifts, I tell them ‘Now!’. Just as winter is coming to an end. Because getting ahead of the game can bring you a sleigh full of benefits that will have you thanking your past self for being so clever. Here’s why:

Beat the Rush

Imagine this: It's November/December, and you're scrambling to find the perfect gifts for your clients and employees. The stores are packed with fellow procrastinators who are all in last-minute panic mode, you’re struggling to find parking, or crossing all your fingers and toes that the gifts will arrive in time before Christmas. It’s a gift-giving nightmare. By starting early, you can gift with calm and ease and feel so on top of everything. You'll be the gifting guru who has everything sorted well in advance, and get to enjoy the holiday season to its fullest.

Dibs on Your Favourite Products (Before the Suppliers Cut Off Orders!)

There’s nothing worse than having your heart set on a gift and then you see the dreaded phrase "out of stock." By getting ahead of the game, you secure your spot at the front of the line. Stores and suppliers have their own cutoff dates way in advance, so once an item is gone, it’s gone, and you don’t want to miss out on the best goodies! Being an early bird means you can get dibs and ensure you snag your favourite products before they vanish faster than snowflakes on a hot chocolate.

Avoid Shipping Delays

We all know how unpredictable and delayed shipping is during the holiday season. So why not save yourself from those nail-biting moments of tracking packages and praying they arrive on time? By planning ahead, you give yourself ample breathing room to choose your favourite gift and know it’ll arrive in time, even if it gets super delayed.

More Options to Customise Your Products and Packaging

We know that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to corporate gifting. You want your gifts to reflect your unique brand identity and show appreciation to your clients and employees in a personalised way that packs a punch. No getting lost in the sea of same-same bottles of grog and holiday hampers. By starting early, you have a wider range of options to choose from. Whether it's customising the products inside the gift boxes to reflect your branding or creating bespoke packaging, our gifting elves are here to bring your visions to life and in a way that’s super memorable. After all, nothing says "we appreciate you" and stands out amongst the sea of holiday gifts like a gift that's tailor-made just for them.
