As the end of year approaches, there’s a buzz in the air that’s both exciting and exhausting…just like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas”. We’ve put together a few ideas to help make your holiday/year end gifting joyous for your team or clients and stress-free for you.
Plan Ahead and Be Flexible
The Golden Rule: The earlier you reserve your gifts, the more likely you are to be able to secure your top choice items.
We recommend clients start the holiday conversation at least two months in advance of when they’d like the gifts to arrive. This allows time for ideation, product design and development, shipping, and fulfillment. So if you haven’t ordered your gifts yet and you’re reading this – you’re already late! But if you don’t have the gift of time – that’s okay too! Our team can always find workarounds – rush orders, expedited shipping, alternative options – but we’ve found that the gifts that are planned early are just way less work for our clients.

Order/Send Gifts That People Want
Can’t read minds? Neither can we! How fun would that be though? Although maybe a little scary. Boss Promotions works with our clients in a number of different ways to collect information from gift recipients before a gift is sent, so that you produce exactly what people want. We can conduct surveys on your behalf, email order forms, or create an online storefront to take orders from your team or clients. Choosing options to create only what is ordered, not only saves you time and money and ensures everyone gets something they love, but it also gives you extra touch-points with your receiver. More touch-points = more engagement = more bang for your gifting buck.

Create An Unboxing Moment, Leave A Lasting Impression
Love or hate Amazon, they have trained most of us to think that a brown box on the doorstep is something we either bought for ourselves or a gift for someone else. I don’t know about you, but when I order gifts for my kids from Amazon, I wrap them. Why? Because presentation matters! When you send a gift you are trying to make your recipient FEEL something joyful. With some fun and inexpensive special touches, we can make sure your gift sparkles from the moment it hits your recipient’s doorstep.
