Rewarding Employees and Clients with Corporate Gifts
WomanOwned.com has looked around and has found some very competent sites that will make finding the right gift – and even the unusual gift – possible.
So you have had a good year and are looking for a way to say thank you to your staff and clients for getting you there. Going to the local mall would be a time drain (while you could be making money) and you don’t want to give them the logo coffee mugs like last year. Luckily, the internet has come to your aid.
Corporate Focused Sites
We found a few really good sites that will cater directly to you, the business owner, with corporate reward accounts and suggestions for employee gifts based on annual service or incentive programs. One site even included a “Solutions Library” where you can read helpful articles from some of the great CEO’s out there. Signing up for a Corporate Account will allow you to save your gift purchases in your private area so you’ll know what you bought for Mary last year.
- Corp Gifts Network – I liked the diversity of gifts here. They have a wide variety of items for both client gifts and employee rewards including themed baskets and bonsai trees. Corporate accounts and discounts are available.
- Corporate Gift Showcase – This site offers not only a wide variety of items, but also provides a customizing service for embroidered and branded gifts. They even feature a “virtual sample” page where you can preview your personalized items before you order.
Unusual Gift Sites
Tired of the same old gifts and interested in something memorable? We found three sites to recommend in this area that should fit the bill. These sites don’t have corporate account or employee programs, but they should offer some interesting choices.
- Shari’s Berries – This site looked good enough to eat! Berries offer gifts that are as interesting as they are tasty. Their premier item is Strawberry Roses with corporate personalization available on the box. Send ½ dozen of these gems for $50 and have the office talking about it for a week.
- Computer Gear & More – For those technology buffs on your holiday list and maybe even for you, this site has everything related to computers and the internet. T-shirts, signs, and silver-plated mice ($30) are some of the offerings. This site is not as professional as the others in this round-up, but still pretty easy to use.
