Bestowe Gifting specializes in corporate gifting and connecting small-batch artisans with clients. The creation of Bestowe Partners, the corporate gifting division of the company, was inspired by the desire to support local artisans and create unique and memorable solutions for corporate gifting.
In light of the increase in virtual events, Bestowe has been asked to create offerings for corporate and mid-tier companies for both clients and employees. When creating a gift for an online event, it is important to consider the objective of the event, choose products that align with that objective, and give something meaningful that can be used beyond the event.
We suggest including materials for activating brain cells, emphasizing wellness, and sparking conversations in gifts for brainstorming and networking meetings. Onboarding gifts should emphasize brainpower and fun, while wellness gifts can provide a pick-me-up for employees during stressful times. Client appreciation gifts should be memorable and have the potential to create long-term meaningful relationships.
Our Passion is Corporate Gifting
At Bestowe we have two passions: helping small-batch artisans find opportunities to showcase their products, and finding like-minded professionals who align with our mission.
These professionals understand the importance of gifted items with a purpose - not just as a token gesture, but as an expression of goodwill that encapsulates their identity and mission in each gift box, right down to its contents. That is why we created Bestowe Partners, the corporate gifting arm of our business.
With the rise of virtual trainings taking place online now, we have been asked to assemble pieces to support these events in a meaningful way.
Our team takes pride in being able to craft thoughtful packages and connect our corporate clients’ energy and brand message through giving. Through each package, our clients are making an impact on the world around them in both big and small ways.
We offer unique and memorable solutions for corporate gifting.
Making corporate gifting as memorable and meaningful as possible is key to making a lasting connection with clients, so we are proud to offer a wide range of gift examples that can be customized according to our client's corporate event needs.
Not only do we provide a great selection of product options, but we also offer full-service design services equipped to customize shipping boxes, invitations, and other materials to create an even more personalized experience. From basic corporate gifting ideas all the way to the full ‘wow’ factor, our team is here to help you make your corporate event one that people won't forget anytime soon.
Three Tips for Creating a Gift for an Online Event
1. Choose your objective: Corporate gifting is an effective way to show appreciation at any corporate event. Whether you're hosting a mixer to mingle with clients, a brainstorming session amongst colleagues, a corporate onboarding process, or even a corporate conference- corporate gifts are an easy and meaningful way to express your appreciation for those involved. Corporate gifts are also great for employee engagement activities or as thank you's for valued clients. Very few investments make such an impact of gratitude like corporate gifting does.
2. Choose products for the gift box that support that objective. Corporate gifting is a great way to show appreciation, thank clients and employees, or celebrate milestones. When choosing corporate gifs, it is important to think carefully about what the objective of the gift box is. Whether the event is an onboarding event or celebrating a major milestone, selecting products that support that objective can make all the difference.
For example, if the event is an onboarding event then providing materials and games to facilitate onboarding activities or a branded product as a welcome to their new community and company may be ideal options. Add customized cards with thoughtful messages along with corporate experiences like unique experiences and personalized corporate items for added value to each corporate gift box. No matter what corporate gifts you choose for your gift boxes, always remain mindful of the objective for maximum impact.
3. Give something meaningful your clients or employees can use beyond the event moment. Corporate gifting is a great way to show your brand’s appreciation for loyal customers or hardworking employees. When it comes to corporate gifting, many people settle on cheap trinkets that have little meaning or lasting value.
However, if you want to make a lasting impression, try something more meaningful than the standard corporate swag. Consider giving something that can be used beyond the event moment - such as personalized memorabilia or even useful items like books and planners - that will spark conversations and become a part of everyday life. Showing thoughtfulness and care in corporate gifting will help create meaningful relationships long after the event has ended.

Work Wellness Gift for Employee Gifts and Client Gifting
We call this one the Working in Wellness
All employees and clients could use a pick me up. We put together a gifting assortment of artisan products that employees and clients can use outside of the 9-5 and computer time.

All of these gifts were created in conjunction with a partner of ours in Chicago: PC Experiences, an event company specializing in B2B events focused on companies telling a story or conveying a message to their internal audiences.
