Be they for clients, customers or colleagues, corporate gifts are always a challenge. With reputations on the line, every minute detail sends a message.
This often culminates in a fraught and stressful search for the perfect gift – something that undoubtedly wasn’t a part of your job description!
But fear not, we’ve come up with some general tips to help guide your thinking through this tedious process:
- Personalise it!
You want your gifts to leave the right impression, especially if you’re giving them on a professional basis. By personalising your gift and tailoring it to its recipient, be that with a message or logo, you’re showcasing the amount of thought that you’ve put into the gesture.
- Don’t compromise on quality
Your corporate gifts should be as reliable as you are, so if your gift wears out after sixth months, it’s not going to reflect tremendously on you. Opting for higher quality gifts is always a safer bet.
- Think about your audience
It’s no use moving heaven and earth to find someone the perfect cheeseboard if you later find out that they’re lactose intolerant. Working out whether your gift will be well received is crucial and can also help to narrow your search.
Understandably, this may all sound a bit daunting. Fortunately, thoughtful gifts and personalised messages are two things we happen to know a lot about. Having provided fantastic wooden corporate gifts for companies ranging from ITV to Element Energy, we can assure you that you’re in very safe hands.
So, with that in mind, here are our top five picks for corporate wooden gifts, straight from our Worcestershire workshop, that will leave a lasting impression on whoever receives them.
Personalised Wooden Gin and Tonic Chopping Board
This one won’t be for everyone, but if you’re looking to leave an impression on a colleague, client or customer who’s ever shown an interest in making cocktails, then our personalised wooden gin and tonic chopping board is guaranteed to produce a smile.
Carefully handcrafted in our workshop with high-quality European oak, this unique product is one of our most popular items for a reason.
With an array of personalisation options, your message can be expertly engraved on the front, back and bottom face of this board. All you have to do is think of what to say – no pressure!
Personalised Wooden Phone and Tablets Stands
A more universal option, especially for your more practically minded customers and co-workers, our high-quality engraved phone and tablet stands might even find their way into regular use around the office before too long.
Everyone has a phone or tablet and, naturally, everyone needs somewhere to put it. That makes these ideal corporate gifts for someone whose tastes you’re less familiar with, but still want to impress. Even so, with an impressive array of personalisation options, you can still get these products engraved to your heart’s content. These are versatile gifts that will consistently stand out from the crowd.
One thing’s for certain, these products will definitely get used.
Personalised Wooden Cheese Board
Eager to show off your sophisticated tastes? We understand. Quite the conversation starter, our exquisite wooden cheese board has the potential to become the centerpiece of any kitchen.
Naturally, this product is fully customisable, coming in two sizes and can be engraved with a personalised message around the circumference and on the bottom face. You even get to choose whether you want a V-groove on the top face or not.
If you’re after a top-notch quality, sophisticated gift that will leave an impression on its recipient for years to come, look no further.
Personalised Wooden Keyrings
As much as we enjoy talking about our flagship products, we understand that they might be stretching the budget a bit, especially if you’ve got a lot of people to shop for (feel free to contact us about bulk orders!). Fortunately, our personalised wooden keyrings can deliver similar levels of charm at a lower price point.
Created from an oak specifically selected for its graining, make sure you tell your recipient that this personalised item will be sanded down four times and coated with Osmo TopOil before leaving our workshop to achieve a perfect finish. No expenses spared!
Personalised Wooden Chopping Board
Our signature product, we saved this until last for a reason. Coming in a range of sizes, with a wide variety of engraving options on offer, not to mention an unrivalled build quality, it’s hard to go wrong with this one.
An essential item, our chopping boards are designed to stay with their recipients for decades. A gift like this will remind your colleague, client or customer of you for years to come.
We hope this list has given you some ideas to be going on with. If you’re still scratching your head, however, don’t worry, as we have plenty more high-quality wooden products waiting for you on our website.
