Business Gift Boxes for Clients and Employees

Business gifting is a 250 billion-dollar industry in the USA and is forecasted to be well over $300 Billion by the year 2025. With so many corporate gifts being given to employees or sent to clients, what can you do to ensure that your gifts make a lasting impression and stand out from the crowd? In this article, we will help you understand everything you need to know to send the best corporate gifts that your clients and employees will love and that you will be proud to send.


The Importance of Business Gifting

Business gifting is an important part of showing appreciation and creating relationships. It is a gesture that can communicate to both employees and clients that their hard work and loyalty are valued, which in turn can help foster strong working relationships. A thoughtful gift sent with the right message has the potential to show that you are serious about building meaningful connections, something that can often be difficult to do with words alone. Furthermore, corporate gifting is a great way to show respect, gratitude, and appreciation in a professional setting without coming across as too personal. If you are not sending gifts to potential clients, clients, and employees, you are falling behind, because your competition likely is.


How to Select the Right Gift Business?

Partnering with the right gifting business is critical and is the single most important factor in the success of your gifting campaigns. With thousands of corporate gifting companies serving the U.S. market, how can you find the perfect partner? Using the questions below when evaluating potential gifting partners will help you narrow down your selection to ensure they can meet your needs.

Questions You Should Ask Potential Corporate Gift Partners

  1. Have you worked with other organizations my size?
  2. What are your fulfillment and shipping capabilities?
  3. Can you ship corporate gifts directly to my recipients addresses?
  4. Do you offer personalization and branding options with my company logo?
  5. Can my employees and clients select their own gifts?
  6. What type of service and support do you offer my company and my gift recipients?

1) Have you worked with organizations my size?

As a premier gifting company, Shadow Breeze has partnered with organizations of all sizes to deliver successful gifting campaigns. We have run campaigns for large global companies like Google, Home Depot, Costco, BASF, Allstate Insurance, Cox Communications, Salesforce, Proctor & Gamble, and many other Fortune 500 companies.

We also work with smaller organizations with one to several hundred employees as well as non-profit organizations, government agencies, and more including wedding parties, families, and individuals.

Regardless of your campaign size or the number of gifts you want to send, you will receive the same amazing support all of our customers have come to love and can't stop talking about.


2) What are your corporate gifting fulfillment and shipping capabilities?

At Shadow Breeze, we operate our own offices and warehouse where all of your gifts are prepared, personalized, branded, and shipped. We have relationships with major carriers like UPS, USPS, and DHL that span 20 years. We have shipped gifts around the world and understand the complexities of international shipping, customs, duties, and more.

We offer same-day shipping on our ready-to-ship corporate gifts and can handle custom gifting campaigns from 10 to 10,000 or more. As a bonus, we can warehouse your gifts, SWAG, and other items in our warehouse for fulfillment at later date.

3) Can you ship my corporate gift boxes directly to my recipients?

Shadow Breeze makes it easy to send your gifts directly to your clients and employees in multiple locations. You provide us with the names and addresses and we take care of the rest.

Recipient information can be sent to us in a spreadsheet, an email, or in almost any other format. With a Zapier automated workflow, you can automate the passing of gifting information from many popular HR, Payroll, and ERP systems.


4) Do you offer personalization and branding options with my company logo?

Shadow Breeze has the internal capabilities to personalize and brand most items. While many gifting companies can brand items, most outsource that to other organizations which can cause delays.

Just as importantly, Shadow Breeze has the expertise to help you brand your gifts the right way, to ensure they are appreciated by your recipients and not just tossed in the trash with SWAG they get from other organizations.


5) Can my employees and clients select their own gifts?

Of course. Shadow Breeze offers free corporate gifting portals, yes you heard that right, free gifting portals where your employees or clients can pick their gifts. Shadow Breeze will work with you to create your gifting portals based on your budget and campaign.

In addition to giving a choice of gifts, our gifting portals make it easy to send gifts without worrying about the accuracy of your shipping addresses since the gift recipient enters their own shipping address.


6) What type of service and support do you offer my company and my gift recipients?

When you partner with Shadow Breeze you will receive a dedicated account manager that will work with you on all of your gifting needs. We take pride in being responsive and saying "yes" when the other gifting providers say "no." Let us take your ideas and create the perfect gift campaign for your organization.

Our post-gifting support and service is also world-class. We will work with you or your employees and clients if there are any issues with shipping or damaged gifts to quickly resolve the issue and leave everyone with a smile on their faces. Need examples, we are happy to share the great feedback we have received from past customers.
