5 Reasons You Need to Send Gifts to Customers

Many companies wonder if it’s appropriate to send gifts to their clients and customers; others wonder if it’s a waste of time. The fact is, sending gifts is not only appropriate, it’s important. Here’s 5 ways being generous with your customers positively impacts your bottom line.

  1. Branding, Branding, Branding– At a 2003 trade show, nearly 63% of those in attendance reported receiving a promotional gift, and a whopping 72% of them remembered who had given it to them. Pro Tip: Print your logo on the gift card, and send a tasteful gift that your customer will enjoy, rather than the corporate logo-emblazoned anti-gift.
  2. Create Connections and Impact – With internet businesses blooming, many customers complain about the lack of human connection. Additionally, fewer companies are sending truly thoughtful gifts to VIP customers, if they’re sending gifts at all. When your company is the one that sends an impressive, thoughtful gift, customers will feel that you’ve gone above and beyond, will associate your name with positive feelings, and will remember you even longer.
  3. Increase Return Customers – Customers who remember you, remember you when they are ready to buy again. Studies show that customers who have received gifts not only reorder faster, they also order more often.
  4. Happy Customers Spend More – Feelings of familiarity and positive memories make customers more willing to open their wallets, and even increase their spending budget when they’re shopping. A customer may set a target price point, but while shopping with a familiar company, it is common for a comfortable and engaged customer to increase their spending limit by as much as 10%.
  5. Gifts Save Money – Research shows that the cost per impression of promotional gifts is less than half a cent. Comparatively, traditional methods of advertising cost almost two cents per impression. This might sound like small potatoes, but when you’re working with thousands, or even millions, of impressions – the difference adds up.
    .

Ultimately, sending business gifts to customers is a short term, and relatively minor, expense with excellent long term returns!

Celebrating Christmas Around the World

The biggest and one of the most joyful holidays of the year, Christmas is almost here! There’s no other festival that is celebrated with such vigor and enthusiasm in so many countries around the world. Although Christmas traditions may slightly vary depending on the local customs this holiday is all about Christmas trees, festive meals, family time, and of course exchanging Christmas Gifts.

Christmas in Germany: “Frohe Weihnachten!”

Christmas season in Germany starts with Advent 4 weeks prior December, 25th. A wreath of evergreens with four red candles each lit every Sunday before Christmas is placed in every house.

On Christmas Eve after visiting church families feast on a big meal featuring traditional roast goose or duck stuffed with apples, fish, Christmas bread and marzipan treats. Before the dinner is the presentation of the Christmas tree. While children are waiting in the other room one of the parents brings out the Christmas tree and decorates it with apples, sweets, cookies, angels, and lights. When all is ready they call everyone to the room. It is under the Christmas tree where the following morning children find their Christmas gifts that are believed to be brought by Father Christmas – ‘Der Weihnachtsmann’.

Christmas in France: “Joyeux Noël”

Like in many other countries, the Christmas season in France begins with Saint Nicholas’ Day, December 6th. The preparations for the holiday start a few days before Christmas with the decoration of the Christmas tree and displaying a Nativity scene with figurines.

At midnight on Christmas Eve families go to church for a Christmas mass. Young children usually stay at home and go to bed early to dream of their Christmas gifts. Before going to bed, they leave their shoes by the fireplace to find it the next morning filled with gifts from Santa Claus (“le père Noël”).

The main Christmas dinner called ‘Le Reveillon’, is a grand feast served after midnight mass on Christmas Eve. The dishes are usually quite elaborate and vary according to the region.

Christmas in Mexico: “Feliz Navidad!”

Every year, Mexicans celebrate Christmas, Las Posadas for a full nine days leading up to Christmas or Holy Eve. Christmas is the time for church and family. After church services on Christmas Eve, families gather together for a festive dinner that starts with oxtail soup with beans and chili, followed by roasted turkey and a special salad of fresh fruit and vegetables.

The most important part of Mexican Christmas for children is pinata party. The pinata is a large clay or papier-mache figure shaped like a star or animal covered with colorful paper streamers. The pinata is filled with candy and small gifts and hung from the ceiling. The blindfolded children take turns trying to break it open and race to gather as many candies as they can.

Christmas in Russia & Ukraine: “Schastlivogo Rozhdestva!”

Christmas Day in Russia & Ukraine marks the birth of Jesus Christ according to Christian Orthodox church. Although banned during the Soviet Union, Christmas has finally regained its popularity and religious meaning in Eastern Europe. Observed on January 7th according to old ‘Julian’ calendar it is declared a national holiday.

People in Russia & Ukraine celebrate Christmas by preparing a festive dinner, attending Christmas liturgy, visiting relatives and friends, and exchanging Christmas gift baskets. There is a 40-day Lent preceding Christmas, which ends with the first star in the night sky on January 6 – a symbol of Jesus Christ’s birth. The first star also signals the start of the Christmas dinner. For many secular Russians, Christmas is a family holiday but it is not as important as New Year’s.

Christmas in Japan: “Merii Kurisumasu!”

Even though only 1% of the population in Japan is Christian and many people don’t know exactly what the origin of Christmas is the Japanese have adopted many Western customs related to observing Christmas. Along with decorating Christmas trees, hosting parties and exchanging Christmas gifts they have their own unique traditions. Eating special Christmas cakes on Christmas Eve is one of them. Stores all over carry versions of this Christmas cake and drop the prices drastically on December 25th in order to sell everything out by the 26th. Christmas Eve has also become a night for lovers to go out and spend romantic time together at fancy restaurants or hotels.

Without a doubt Christmas is very enjoyable time of the year for Japanese people, but New Year’s still remains a much more popular holiday.

Business Gift Giving Etiquette During Christmas

A tradition of corporate gift giving on Christmas and other big holidays has become a significant part of every business. First of all, business gift giving is an investment in your company. Sending out Christmas gifts gets the attention of your recipients and shows your thoughtfulness. It can help you solidify and re-establish relationships with your colleagues, business associates, employees or draw new customers into your company. Giving a proper gift to a fellow employee or a client keeps them happy and boosts employee morale. But corporate gifts for recipients in other countries can produce a wrong impression or even harm your business relationships if you don’t know the etiquette behind it. Nearly every business culture around the world has their own gift giving customs, so you may have to do your research before sending something out to a foreign client. So before you start shopping for your Christmas gifts for clients, colleagues or employees, consider the following basic business gift giving etiquette tips.

Make Sure Your Recipients Celebrate Christmas

It’s important to be sensitive to each person’s religion or beliefs. Giving a holiday gift to someone who can’t accept it because of their beliefs can make both you and them uncomfortable. Don’t just assume that all of your clients or colleagues celebrate Christmas. To avoid an awkward situation, you can simply ask if they celebrate Christmas, without getting into specifics about their religious preferences. Keep in mind that in Eastern Orthodox Church, for example, Christmas is celebrated on January, 7. Jews celebrate Hanukkah instead, and Muslims and Hindus don’t observe it at all. In this case sending a New Year’s gift will be more appropriate.

Set the Budget

Many companies have strict limitations on the type and monetary amount of gifts they can receive. In order to avoid embarrassment for both parties, check ahead and find out your recipients’ gift policies so you won’t make a mistake.

Quality is King

Regardless of the gift and economic climate, remember that quality is king. If you decide, for example, on a gift basket, make it a nice one. Even small gift baskets can look presentable and valuable. If you go with chocolate or spirits make sure they are of the highest quality and of a well-known brand.

Personalize Your Gift

It’s always nice, whenever possible, to personalize each gift for each recipient. Adding a personal touch can give even a small gift a much bigger impact. Your clients and colleagues want to know that you appreciate them. So giving an item that is specifically aligned with their interests can mean more than a generic gift or promotional item from your company.

On the other hand, if you don’t know much about your recipient, you’re better off sticking with a generic gift than sending something that might be considered offensive. Common business gifts include flowers or plants, gourmet and fruit baskets, gift certificates, etc.

Include Everyone

The most important thing you can do when giving corporate gifts for Christmas is to make sure you remember everyone. Don’t offer gifts to only certain team members. Your employees and even clients within a certain industry or group are likely to talk to one another. A kind gesture meant with the best of intentions, may turn negative if someone feels slighted. You don’t want anyone to feel less important or forgotten. To avoid overlooking anyone, keep a running list of recipients and check it carefully before sending out Christmas gifts.
