  • Tips on getting your corporate Christmas gifting right

    For companies embarking on Christmas gifting, Emer offers her expert advice on how to manage corporate Christmas gifting with her tips on getting it right.

    Beautiful Packaging is a must Beautiful Packaging is a must

    “Christmas is the perfect time of year for employers and businesses to demonstrate their appreciation through gifting. It’s a positive exercise that generates a feeling of goodwill throughout the company from employees to clients and can help cement relationships. If the gifting is done with careful consideration it can be a powerful marketing tool.”

    1 Show your company’s personality

    Choose a hamper or gift box for recipients that reflects your company. If you are a company that charges high fees for expert services such as a solicitor or an accountant firm, a hamper of retro sweets is not fitting! Something along the lines of a connoisseur choice such as an Irish Cheese and French Wine gift basket or an Irish Gin Box would be more appropriate However, if the client base or workforce is relatively young and the company atmosphere relaxed then a Retro Sweet Box or Irish Craft Beer Crate is a good choice!

    2 Create a new company tradition and create impact!

    Corporate gifting is an opportunity to create a new company tradition. The gift could focus on wellness and pampering or healthy eating, it could be a gift selection that champions Irish products or home cooking for example. If the gift has a ‘call to action’ such as encouraging an outdoor picnic or indulging in a wine tasting, that will have a lasting impact for the recipient.

     

    3 Be clever

    The more you buy, the lower the price of each gift. So if you are clever about the type of hamper you choose, it is possible to source a gift that suits both clients and employees, whether a young professional or a person near retirement. A hamper can be created that suits your budget and recipient profile.

     

    4 Don’t be too commercial

    Avoid being too promotional about gifting. Whilst it is the norm to let the recipients know who the gift is from, it is bad taste to use the gift as an opportunity to self-promote or publicise a new product or service. It takes away from the kind gesture.

    5 Cement business relationships

    When team members are able to gift their clients, it maintains the good relationship between client and their direct liaison in the company.

    Hampers & Co manage a complete corporate gifting service with the capability to process orders from five to five thousand hampers as required. Ordering is simple and can be done online, by email or over the phone for both local and international shipping.  Our expert knowledge of world customs requirements, ensures recipients receive their distinctive hamper in perfect condition.

    Warmest regards, Emer.

    Port & Champagne Gift To Quote the Grand Dame Lily Bollinger “ I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty.”
    Whiskey Gift To quote the man himself,
    So smooth I would drink it even if my name were not on it” John Jameson
    Corporate Gift Champagne always makes a great Corporate Gift
    White Wine & Chocolates copy A gift suitable for any occasion, be it a Christmas Gift, Birthday Gift or Corporate Gift. The Château Capitoul Wine has won numerous awards & is an perfect example of a well styled wine. The Creamy Irish Chocolates, well they never last very long once opened!

Hope Foundation
Hope Foundation

 

The Hope Foundation is an Irish charity which has been working with street children in Calcutta since 1999. Set up by Cork native Maureen Forrest

 

The Hope Foundation provides support to thousands of children each year through our education programmes alone. Poverty is overwhelming in Calcutta with approximately 250,000 children living, sleeping and working on the streets of the city. Approx 1.83 million children die each year in India before they reach their fifth birthday. Those who survive are forced to work over 12 hours a day begging on the streets for money or rummaging in rubbish dumps for food. At night their tiny bodies line Calcutta's busy streets where they face the very real risk of being abused, trafficked or forced into prostitution.

 

The Hope Foundation believes that education is the 'pathway of out poverty' and with YOUR help we can continue to support these children by providing materials so that they can have the opportunity to go to school.

€1 will provide two children with enough food for an entire week in one of HOPE's coaching centers


€5 will provide one child with a pair of school shoes so that he/she does not have to walk barefoot to school


€10 will provide one child with his/her entire school uniform for the entire school term


Your support is greatly appreciated by HOPE and the children whom we work with.


The Hope Foundation is very grateful for your donation. A Gift certificate  & information leaflet will be inserted into your Gift or Hamper which will inform your recipient that a donation to The Hope Foundation has been made on their behalf. We will email you in due course to thank you for your donation & once again many thanks for your generosity.


Yours sincerely,

Maureen's Signature
