For many businesses and organisations across the UK, sending a gesture of goodwill can be a fantastic way of strengthening networks, building corporate relationships and highlighting how much you value another individual or business. No matter how large or small, a thoughtful gift can go a long way in the corporate world, and is a proven method of securing growth between partners or showing staff members that you appreciate and value their hard work.
During the time of the Coronavirus Pandemic, with limitations on getting together in person for meetings and events, it became even more important to nurture business connections. One way of doing this was through sending corporate hampers. Over the Christmas period in 2020, we saw an increase in corporate enquiries as more and more businesses looked to send presents to their network.
In fact, 83% of people remember brands if they have received a gift from them - meaning corporate hamper gifts and other corporate gifts can go a long way to ensuring you front of mind when it is needed most. Whilst a survey carried out by luxury food and drink company, Cartwright & Butler, revealed that 85% of businesses see corporate gifting as a strategic way of strengthening valuable relationships.
Having said this, it's important that you bear in mind the 2010 bribery act when thinking about sending a corporate gift - ensuring that whatever you send is in line with the regulations to ensure it doesn’t backfire on you! Some companies will have certain rules about what they are able to accept as corporate gifts, so it’s worth double checking before you start sending out gifts.
With this in mind, if you’re looking to send a gift to a client, supplier or partner, sending a hamper full of treats could be an ideal way of showing them how much your business values them. Whether you’re celebrating a business milestone, or simply want to send some festive cheer at Christmas, a corporate gift hamper is the ideal solution.
Corporate gift hampers come in all shapes and sizes and can contain a vast range of products, from food and drink, sweets, bath products and more. When choosing a corporate gift hamper, it's important to consider the end recipient… after all, there is no point sending a hamper full of alcohol if your contact doesn’t drink or sending a hamper containing meat products if they are vegetarian or vegan! Oversights like this could leave a sour taste in the recipient’s mouth and doesn’t make the gift feel personal at all. A big no no! You can check out our food hampers which contain a wide variety of all of the above mentioned gifts.
It's also important to source good quality gifts - again you wouldn’t want to send someone something which is likely to fall apart the moment they open it. That certainly wouldn’t be great for brand reputation!
This is why beautifully presented corporate gift hampers often come up trumps when it comes to sending corporate gifts. These luxurious wicker baskets always have the wow-factor, no matter their contents, and can be made bespoke to ensure they have the personal touch. I mean, who wouldn’t feel special if a huge hamper of goodies arrived on their desk in the office?!
