The Shift in Corporate Gifts:
WHY MORE COMPANIES ARE SENDING NEW YEARS GIFTS INSTEAD OF HOLIDAY
(CHRISTMAS OR HANUKKAH) GIFTS
A few years ago, a business friend of mine told me about an embarrassing incident that had occurred in her office. Her company had received a nice snack basket from a supplier three days before Christmas. The goodies were gone before she even knew that the basket had arrived - and in the holiday rush, she forgot to thank the sender and forgot about the gift until the office reopened in the New Year! In January, her rep from the sending company called to ask if they'd enjoyed the gift - imagine my friend's embarrassment! She'd forgotten to thank the sender - and the sender was concerned because very few of the recipients had thanked them - leaving the sender to wonder over the holidays whether the gifts were delivered at all. The point of this story: the winter holidays feature a FLURRY of gifts from any number of different senders. If you don't want your gift to get lost in this holiday pile - Send corporate gifts to your clients at New Years instead! There are many good reasons to send a New Years gift instead of a Christmas or Hanukkah gift:
1. Your gift arrives after the onslaught of winter holiday gifts - and everyone in the office is still hungry!! Your gift will really stand out and be appreciated.
2. New Years Day is a national holiday - all Americans celebrate it! It's not a religious or secular holiday, like Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, which are celebrated only by certain groups of people.
3. Many people are thinking of healthy New Years resolutions - so a fabulous fruit basket makes a wonderful gift!
4. Most associates are back at work in the office after New Years day, whereas many workers take time off during the winter holidays. That means that more workers will enjoy your gift and appreciate your generosity.
5. New Years is a terrific time to express your gratitude for an excellent year past, and to look forward with optimism to another great year of partnership.
