Saying “thank you” is more than just good manners – it is incredibly good for you! Doing it with a little gift of some kind cements the gesture in a physical manner.
Studies have shown that showing appreciation to your staff and key clients can result in an increased sense of confidence, it can help reduce stress levels, can foster better team spirit, heighten patience levels, and even help achieve more restful sleep. Feeling appreciated can also help individuals make better long-term decisions and set more meaningful goals. All of which would be incredibly good for a business – and its key personnel, who manage the delivery of thank you gifts.
Such benefits would be positive at the end of any given year, but they are surely even more valuable at the end of a trying year, as 2021 has been for many.
The end of the calendar year for Australians also marks the end of a typical work year so receiving a thank you gift at Christmas time needn’t always have religious significance. Feeling appreciated for the work performed in 2021 encourages team members to return to work in 2022 feeling revitalised. Ending on a positive note encourages arrival back at work ready to start afresh, with motivation to begin the new year in a positive and productive manner.
A thoughtful, fit for purpose, branded gift is an excellent way to show those who support your business how much they matter. While all promotional products should be deemed an investment in one’s business, they are never more valuable than when they are used to show appreciation to those who are essential to your business’s success!
Branded gifts also provide a visible reminder of appreciation. Surveys conducted over the years show promotional products are often kept well over 12 months, so they provide an ongoing reminder to your team members and clients that you value them. They are also an excellent way to encourage brand loyalty and to tangibly connect the recipient to your brand’s identity – who and what your company stands for.
Selecting appropriate branded gifts takes time and effort. The key, as is often the case, is the selection of relevant and suitable items that can be distributed in a practical manner. A promotional products industry specialist can assist you with this process. Please consider the importance of gift giving, something tangible and branded, for your valued team this December.
