Social Stories Club Corporate Gift Box

Sustainable corporate Christmas gifts are a fantastic way to build relationships and show your appreciation to staff, colleagues and clients. Whether you are acknowledging an individual’s accomplishments or celebrating your team for a job well done, a personal corporate gift can really help boost morale during one of the busiest times of the year. If you have searched high and low for a social enterprise gifting supplier that shares you value, we are excited to introduce to you Social Stories Club. We specialise in corporate gifts for clients and employees.

However, it can seem a bit daunting if you have a large team to buy for or if everyone has different tastes and dietary requirements. But with a little bit of planning and help from Social Stories Club, we guarantee we can make the entire process seamless and stress-free!

Our top corporate gifting tips 

1. Prepare your list and collect everyone’s addresses

To ensure the whole process runs smoothly, start with an organised list of all the gift recipients. You may also want to take note of their current working situation i.e. are they working from home or at the office? If the majority of your team are still working from home, you will need to collect their personal addresses too to send their sustainable gift boxes to their houses.

2. Send your gifts early 

We know this time of year can be super busy but getting your orders in early can help avoid any stress and panic further down the line. We find that our busiest time for sending gift hampers is between 1st - 17th December so to avoid any disappointment or delayed parcels, we always advise getting your orders in as early as possible. 

Bonus : The added benefit of sending gifts early means your giftees have plenty more time to enjoy and savour your gift!

3. Set a budget

Before you start brainstorming and researching ideas, it’s always best to set a budget and have it signed off - remember to factor in any branding and delivery charges too.

4. Add a personal note to the recipient

Why not add a personal note to say thank you or celebrate how well they did on a presentation/project? Being specific can really help motivate your team and show how much you value their hard work.

We offer options for personalisation in our corporate hampers, check out our corporate page for more details.

5. Be mindful and appropriate

The aim of corporate gifting is to build strong relationships. So, in order to make sure your gift is well received it's best to consider things such as religion, dietary requirements and health etc when buying your gifts. 

For example, if you are sending a gift to a colleague who is Vegan, you can swap in products that better suit their dietary requirements. Check out our vegan gift boxes here.

6. Highlight your company values 

Sending a thoughtful gift to your team is fantastic but what if your corporate gift could also have a positive social impact? With much more focus on corporate responsibility, it’s important to consider how you can showcase your company values and sustainability efforts.

Our corporate gifts offer you the unique opportunity to reach out to your staff and clients whilst also supporting social and environmental causes.

We hope you found this blog post helpful and it’s inspired you to send a meaningful corporate gift!
