Here are a few winter promotional gift ideas to get you ready for the coming months:

  1. Custom flask

Those cold winter mornings mean that most of us are getting up in the cold darkness and will usually hit the road bright and early before the sun has even provided a little bit of warmth. And so having a flask keeping your coffee or your tea nice and warm is something that many of us are going to be using during winter. From a company’s point of view, the flask is a great corporate gift to give. It is easy to brand.

  1. Coffee

How about some delicious coffee to go into that flask? Giving your own unique brand of coffee is most definitely going to be making an impression. Any coffee lover is going to appreciate being given a delicious blend of coffee.

To keep your staff warm this winter, you should be considering branded winter clothing such as jerseys, fleeces, and pullovers. Your company name and logo can easily be added to these items of clothing and your staff will keep warm this winter. The alternative will be to brand these types of clothing and then to hand them out at events or conferences.

  1. Scarves

Giving away a scarf is so simple and affordable. Scarves can keep you really warm in the winter months and they are also ideal for easy branding. Scarves can be handed out wherever you are, and they can just as easily be given to your staff, making them an all-round great promotional item to be giving.

Isn’t business such an interesting part of life? Every industry is constantly growing and enjoying new ways to showcase what it is that they do. One of the most popular ways that businesses are making a name for themselves and showing the world what it is that they do is by attending expos that are relevant to their industry. Expos are cropping up all over the country, in every city, and they are not only a way for industry members to get to know one another, they are also a great place for businesses to reach out to the public. But in order to make the most of the expo that you are attending, you need to make sure that you are properly prepared. Here are the things that you cannot leave behind when you are going to an expo.

  1. Bring the right signage

When you are at an expo you are going to be showcasing your company right alongside some of your biggest competitors. So you are going to have to make that big first impression. The first way that you are going to stand out from the others is to make sure that you have the right signage to attract people. Make sure that you have posters and banners that can be seen from all around. This will draw people to you.

  1. Do the presentation right

Having a display means that you are going to have a type of presentation set up that will tell people about your business. You need to make sure that you have the right presentation media set up. Make sure that you set up a presentation using the right media, to keep people enticed and interested.

  1. Use those promotional items

Promotional items are fantastic to give away and when passing them around at an expo, you are going to be making a very big first impression. You are also going to be giving a person a small part of your company that they are going to be carrying around with them for the rest of the time that they are at the expo.

  1. Don’t forget the business cards

Business cards are never going to go out of fashion. Keep a stack of them close by and hand them out along with brochures and gifts. This is the best way to make that memorable first impression.

  1. Keep yourself refreshed

Standing all day, engaging with people, is going to drain your energy pretty fast. Be sure to stay hydrated and to have some snacks nearby. This will help you to keep up your energy and give that great first impression.

Promotional gifts for the desk

Promotional gifts are suitable for all sorts of occasions but have you considered the power of a promotional item for an office desk.

Sitting idly at their desks, wading through another work day, employees of any company could do with a little bit of distraction to keep their minds occupied. No one can be 100% focused throughout the day, and sometimes when a person’s mind wanders it is actually a great way for them to get back some of that productive energy that is bound to slump during the day. When that tiredness hits and their minds wander a bit, their eyes might be roving around their desks. They look at their desk plant, their pens and notebooks, their desk clocks, and all the while they are taking in the details of each item. Now imagine it was your branding on each one of those items on their desks.

Promotional gifts for the desk should be included in your marketing plans

Promotional gifts for the desk are a fantastic, constant reminder about your company and what it is that you do. Each time the person looks up from their work and looks directly at the promotional item on their table, they will be looking at your branding and your details. This is a powerful marketing technique and if you haven’t been investing in it then you have certainly been missing out. One of the greatest things about promotional gifts for the desk is that they are so much cheaper than other gifts to give away and they have longer staying power. You are unlikely to be giving out huge, pricey desk gifts simply because the office desk is only so big and can only accommodate so much.

The ideal corporate gifts for a desk

  1. Desk pad

Each year, thousands of calendar desk pads are printed and distributed. For the next year these pads are going to be on the desk and each day the person working at the desk is going to look down and see the branding of the company which gave the gift. Desk pads can be personalised and they can also be bought and branded in bulk.

  1. A pen and paper holder

Having a pen and piece of paper within reach is always incredibly handy. Almost every person working at a desk job is going to appreciate this gift as pens and paper are never turned away. A pen and paper holder is the ideal promotional gift as they can be elegantly and discreetly branded, allowing them to suit every desk.

Many industries still rely on the pen and paper

  1. A frame and clock

No one wants to think of themselves as clock watchers but sometimes, especially when the mind is wandering off, looking at the clock might become a habit. Having a photo frame included with the clock is only going to make the promotional gift even more special as the person can include a photo of their loved ones within the frame.

If you haven’t considered giving promotional gifts that are ideally suited to the desk then it is about time that you start including them in your marketing campaign. GiftWrap has all of these gifts and more, you can really make an impression with these gifts.

Corporate gifts and packaging

It is always exciting to receive a gift especially when you are not sure what the gift is. Packaging is a great way to keep the mystery of the gift alive and to get the person receiving the gift to keep on guessing for a little while. One of the biggest rules when it comes to making corporate gifts incredibly effective for marketing is to make sure that they are memorable. Once you have mastered the art of ensuring that the gifts you give are effective, you will have hit the jackpot for corporate gift giving.

Depending on how you package your corporate gifts, you can improve your marketing

The wrapping and packing of promotional gifts are a time consuming and challenging business. Many times the company’s staff will be left with the task of wrapping up the promotional items and it is important to get the job right even if it is not exactly the most exciting thing to have to do. Those who are doing the wrapping can sometimes feel just a little bit overwhelmed when they see all of the options that can be used to do the wrapping. But it is the effort that goes into the wrapping of the gifts that makes the gift all the more special. When a person can see the effort that has gone in as well as see that those doing the wrapping have taken the time to wrap the gifts in such a way that the gifts are personalised, they are going to be blown away.

Make it personal

There will always be those loyal supporters who have continuously supported a company to the point that the company is more than a business partner and is instead a friend. These people deserve to receive a special corporate gift that is designed to be more personal than those gifts which are given in bulk to the other clients.

The same goes for when you are giving the gift to your employees. As the boss of a company you know each and every one of your employees and you know their tastes. You can take things one step further by making sure that you give them a gift that has been wrapped in such a way that it suits them completely. Not only are they going to appreciate receiving such a personally wrapped gift but they are going to be surprised that the gift is so perfectly suited to them.

Promotional items packed properly can make an impression

Combining the wrapping and the gift inside, you will find that your promotional gifts are going to do exactly what is promised. They are going to build up your brand and help you to make your company memorable. Promotional items are there to assist you in building your brand and building up the trust that people have in your company.

Promotional items you should know how to use before giving

Companies that spend part of their budgets on promotional items enjoy a lot of success. But what happens when you give a gift that you have no idea how to use? And what’s worse is, what if you give that gift and then the customer asks you how to use it but you don’t know how to? You don’t need that type of embarrassment in your life and the last thing you need is for your customers to think that you don’t know what you are talking about. The giving of the promotional gift has as much power as the gift itself. You want your gift to make the bigger impact and in order to do this, you need to educate yourself about your gifts before you start. Giving corporate gifts is an art, and you can start perfecting your art by knowing what you are giving.

Here are a 2 promotional gifts that you should learn to use before giving:

The Boomerang

Boomerangs are interesting promotional items
Boomerangs are interesting promotional items

 

They already look rather odd, but if you have watched enough movies you are likely to have seen the boomerang being used. It flies smoothly through the air, does a turn and flies all the way back to your hand. But that is not always the case. You have to know how to use it in order for it to work correctly. So…

Step 1: Focus on the wind direction

Step 2: Grip one side

Step 3: Release it with a spin to the side of the wind (not directly into the wind, throw it at a 45-degree angle). The spin is very important, think of it almost as throwing a rugby ball. It will turn midair on its own. Remember not to throw the boomerang aggressively, it is a calm but firm toss.

Step 4: Watch it cut through the air and prepare to catch it before it hits you.

With the boomerang, practice makes perfect. Give it a few tries before you attempt to show a customer and be sure there is wind. If you are able to accomplish the throw and catch, your clients will be impressed.

The Compass

Figure out how the compass works before you give it as a gift. Teaching your clients how to use compass might just impress them

It might seem as if it is very easy to use a compass successfully, you might still see people walking around completely confused with a  compass balancing on their outstretched palm, not exactly understanding what they are looking for or which direction they are going. Luckily we don’t depend on compasses as much anymore, but having the knowledge of how to use a compass is still pretty valuable. So…

Step 1: Hold the compass in the palm of your outstretched hand. It needs to be held flat so that the needle can turn.

Step 2: Orientate yourself by determining which direction you are facing. First, turn the degree dial until the arrow lines up with the magnetic arrow so that both are facing north. Once this is done, unless you are already facing north, you should be able to determine the direction you are facing.

Step 3: Work out your degrees by checking the degree marker. You can find this by looking at where the travel arrow is pointing. Once you have your bearings you will be able to use a map to navigate.

Those who are going to be receiving your promotional items will receive a lasting impression if you are able to show them how the gift actually works. At Gift Wrap, you can find a number of interesting promotional gifts all at affordable prices.

The best executive promotional gifts to make a lasting impression

Not everyone who you will be giving gifts to are going to get the same gift. Those clients who are a little more supportive than the rest and who are considered to be the more executive types are going to receive gifts which are very impressive. Executive promotional gifts are a cut above the rest and should you have a board of executives working within your company, these gifts are great for saying thank you.

We often make  the mistake of thinking that we can only give promotional gifts to our clients but promotional items are not just reserved for the everyday shopper, they are also ideal for spoiling the executives within your company. The executive corporate gifts are those that are high quality and designed to be given specifically to either the most loyal clients, or the executive members of the staff. Whether they are the executives who are supporting your company, or the executives within your company, these people are always on the go and they are always going to welcome a promotional gift that is going to make their lives a whole lot easier. Here are the gifts that you should give to executives.

Executive promotional gifts come in all shapes and sizes

When someone lives a hectic lifestyle, they are always on their cell phones or typing away on their laptop. So what better gift to give to an executive then a special type of charger? One of the best types of chargers that you can give is the type that can be charged by the sun. A solar charger is affordable and incredibly useful. They have a USB output cable that will allow you to plug in your cell phone charger and your laptop cable. Allowing up to 8 hours of use, this is a fantastic promotional gift for executives.

  • A flat power bank

Power banks are useful and always a hit

Slim enough to fit into your wallet, this power bank  makes a wonderful executive promotional gift. Along with a cable this power bank is going to help your executive clients or members of your staff to charge their electronics when they are on the move. And the slim style of the device means that they can easily be stored away in your wallet or pocket.

  • A stylish USB laser pen

The executive is likely to hold many meetings and sometimes having a laser pointer can make the proceedings go a whole lot smoother. The USB pen is an incredibly popular gift, especially as it is a three in one gift. A pen, a USB drive and a laser pointer all in one. If you really want to make a lasting impression with promotional gifts, this is one of the best ones that you can give.

  • A digital photo frame key ring

With the ability to store up to 50 photos, the digital photo frame key ring allows you to load the photographs you would like to see onto your key ring and then hang your car keys onto it. It is a special gift to give and it is a wonderful option if you are looking for a special promotional gift.

The importance of promotional items for any business

If you have found your way to our website then you have probably already heard about the importance of promotional items in your business. Promotional items hold a lot of power and when you are looking to build your brand or to enhance it more than just a little bit. Big businesses, small businesses, medium businesses, even start-ups! Every business can harness the power of using promotional items and this is why every business should.

Promotional items are important for all companies.
Promotional items are important for all companies.

We live in a world where there is an overabundance of choice. In the shops you are likely to see numerous brands of coffee, countless cereals and when you are driving on the road you are going to pass countless car brands. There is no longer just one shop selling just one product and within your industry, you are likely to be facing many competitors who are selling the same things to the same market. Standing apart from the rest and standing out in a way that captures interest and attention is the only way that you are going to survive.

Promotional items allow you to be different, they allow you to be unique in a world where everyone and every business is the same. Promotional items are used by those who have a clever approach to business and who are serious about making their company become a stand out success. The success of a company using promotional items is quite astounding as research a few years back showed. Researchers have shown that 52% of people who receive a promotional product will think positively about the company and of those who receive a promotional product 50% use the product on a daily basis.

Don't underestimate the power of a well thought out promotional gift.
Don’t underestimate the power of a well thought out promotional gift.

What do these statistics tell us?

Promotional products that are seen often or used often are going to become a constant reminder about the company which has given the promotional item. The more a person is reminded of a product and a company, the more likely they are to buy the item from the company. There are few marketing strategies that can claim to have as much swaying power as a promotional item.

With an increase of brand recognition, a small budget required to purchase the promotional items en mass and the gifts being helpful to the person receiving them, promotional items are definitely the way to go. A branded promotional item is going to become the best business card you will ever own.

Now is the time to introduce corporate gifts to your marketing

It is always a good time to add promotional gifts to your marketing strategy, and when you are suddenly facing more competition than before, adding promotional gifts can only make your company unique. One bit of advice before you go out and buy promotional products is to think about how the item is going to be relevant to your business. An item that is relevant is going to make a bigger impact.

After reading this, I hope you are considering how to bring in promotional gifts. They are affordable and with so many options you can really be creative. Dare to stand out in your industry, and claim your place among your market.

Best corporate gifts to give to students

Diaries, calendars, writing instruments and notebooks, you are going to have plenty of options when you are looking to give corporate gifts to students. Students are mostly living on a budget and they are going to appreciate getting some free stuff to assist them through their time studying. Not having to pay out money towards stationary or notebooks, because you have given them the right corporate gift, is going to make a massive impression on the student receiving the gift.

Corporate gifts for students require the same manner of thinking in order for the gift to be a success. The gift still has to be relevant to your company and it still needs to be thought out as it needs to make that impression that will not only bring attention to your company but that will encourage them to support you.

Corporate gifts ideas for students

Headphones

Most students are going to love music and what is better for a music lover than receiving a set of headphones as a gift? Living in dorm rooms or living at home, students are probably not going to be able to listen to their favourite music at a high volume. But they are still going to want to enjoy their escape from reality, something they will achieve when they put on their headphones and crank up their tunes. Headphones are great promotional items because they allow the company giving the gift to place their details onto the headphones.

A diary

Not all schools and colleges give students a diary and not all students will like the diary they get should they receive one from their school. This leaves an opening for you to give a diary, or a personal organiser, as a corporate gift. A gift such as this will give students the opportunity to get organised with their studying schedule and to ensure that they know when they will need to be attending their classes or submit work.

A diary, and stationary, are always going to be a hit.
A diary, and stationary, are always going to be a hit.

Pens and pencils

As a student I had many pens and pencils, a lot of them were promotional gifts. A student is always going to need stationary to get through their studies. From taking notes in their classes to completing their assignments, a pen or a pencil is always going to go down well with a student. When giving pens and pencils as corporate gifts you are going to be saving the student money, and this is going to make a big impact.

A memory stick

Students these days do a lot of their work online, or at least on a computer, especially if they are university students. Being able to save work to a memory stick and take it to class, or to be able to share notes using a memory stick is going to make their lives a whole lot easier. Memory sticks make great corporate gifts and they are fantastic to give to students.

Don’t think that students are not going to become your customers. They moment they start working and spending, that promotional gift they received, the one that made life so much easier, will remind them of your company. At Gift Wrap, we have all of these gifts, and a whole lot more.

  • Cable organisers are going to be appreciated

If you have a desk full of cables you know the pain of having them laying all over the place. Connected to the laptop you will find mouse cables, keyboard cables, network cables and perhaps even a cell phone charger. What a pain! They get in the way and they are not exactly giving your desk the nicest appearance. This why the cable organiser is not only affordable but also a much appreciate gift. I work with a laptop and the cable organiser is a lifesaver.

  • Keep it simple with a lanyard

What is a lanyard? It is usually a sewn piece of material with a clip on the end. The clip is designed to hold a number of things such as pens, identification cards, or even cell phones. They can be decorated with your company’s details and logo which is what makes the lanyard such a fabulous corporate gift. And it is affordable.

  • Give the gift of a toy
