As an event planner, there are a million details that you must coordinate in order to make an event successful. From the guest list to catering, and venue to logistics, you have your hands full even before you consider whether customized event gifting may add to your event.
How do you strike the right balance between budget constraints, understanding the recipient's preferences, managing logistics, and ensuring the gift suits everyone's tastes? With curated artisan gift boxes and a full spectrum of customization options, you’re sure to find the right corporate gifting solution that will leave your recipients thinking about your brand and event for years to come.
When you’re creating a killer event, the last thing you should have to worry about is whether or not your event gifts will make the impression that you want. In this guide, we’ll explore why corporate gifting at your event is so important and how to easily “wow” your event attendees with a meaningful artisan gift box.
Centuries of Corporate Gifting
Did you know that corporate gifting dates back to ancient Rome? Traditionally, corporate gifting was practiced by emperors who presented tokens of appreciation to their soldiers. While the business world has come a long way since then, the heart behind corporate gifting is the same. We all want to feel seen and appreciated, and gifting someone — whether an employee, event attendee, or client — with a unique artisan gift box that aligns with their values is an excellent way to leave a lasting impression.
Planning Your Corporate Event Gift Boxes
When planning your corporate gifting strategy for an upcoming event, a one-size-fits-all approach simply won’t get you the effect you’re after. Every event has a different vibe, goal, and audience, and your corporate gift box should be equally as unique!
There are a few key factors you need to consider to select the best possible gifts for your event: your budget, the type of event, and the demographics of your recipients. Once you've set a realistic budget and chosen a gift that aligns with your event's theme and your company's values, the next step is to think about your recipients. Who are they and what matters to them? Would they appreciate supporting a BIPOC or women-owned business? Do they have any dietary restrictions? What activities or lifestyles will resonate with them? Whomever your event audience will be, cater to their tastes and preferences to ensure your gift isn't just another thing that they must lug home with them, but instead that it is a unique gift experience that they’ll remember forever.
Choose the Perfect Box (Or Create Your Own!)
Once you have a good understanding of who you’re gifting and what your constraints are — budget, preferences, and otherwise — you’re ready to shop. You have tons of options to choose from on the Bestowe Gifting website. You’re able to search by whom you are gifting to, a specific time of year, or for a specific price range. No matter what you’re looking for, we offer a wide variety of custom corporate gift boxes that will suit any audience or preferences.
