Six creative xmas product ideas to wow your customers

‘Tis the season to be jolly…and generous! Nothing quite captures yuletide celebrations than a special gift to say ‘thank you’ to your customers for their business over the last year. You’ll no doubt have gotten to know your best customers well, so have an idea of the types of gifts they’d really appreciate. We’ve matched some creative corporate gift ideas to example customer personas, to inspire your corporate gifting choices and help you to keep your name on top of your clients’ minds this festive season.

The perfect way to show appreciation and stay on your client’s mind is by sending them a timely gift, and there is no better time than Christmas. Here are some ideas for interesting items that won’t break the bank, but will pleasantly surprise your customers…

What type of person is your customer?

The Gym Bunny

Give your customers and prospects a kick out of fitness with a fitness activity tracker band.

They can track their steps, distance, sleep patterns, steps climbed and calories burned. These handy little wrist bands act like a personal trainer without the weekly or monthly fees!

The Foodie

It can be beautifully boxed; chock full of luxurious goodies, such as the key ingredients plus a recipe to make a delicious festive meal from scratch. Oh, and it’d be rude not to include wine!

The Tech Addict

Wearable tech items, such as smartwatches, are super slim and stylish, and make great promotional gifts as they have a great area for printing your brand name or logo, and the straps can be pantone matched to your brand colours.

Smartwatches put the user in control do they don’t miss out on the important things in life, by staying connected and in sync with a smartphone delivering alerts on the go. This gift oozes style and swag!

The Family Guy

(or gal. We don’t discriminate!)

Think custom cookies in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, to really make an impact.

The Thrill Seeker

So how about a quirky santa sack full of thrilling gifts?

The Pet Lover

A thoughtful gift for Christmas would be a snuggly reindeer blanket for their pet’s bed, which can double up as a throw for the sofa and avoid pet hair/muddy paw prints on your couch!

We hope there are a few ideas to inspire your corporate gifting this festive season, but before we finish, remember: packaging makes all the difference. It can make an average product stand out and look much more premium, so don’t overlook how your gift will be packaged when it comes to making your choices!
