Our Top 5 Tips for Corporate Gifting Success
Whether we’re giving or receiving gifts, it makes us feel good inside. Human beings have been using gifts throughout most of human history, as a way of connecting with one another and reinforcing relationships.
There’s a chemical reason behind it. Whenever we give or receive gifts, the feel-good neurotransmitter called dopamine floods our brains with warm, fuzzy feelings! It also interacts with our memory centres, reinforcing the positive impression and creating a stronger bond between giver and receiver.
If you’re wondering how these feelings translate to business, here’s some data on corporate gifting from a recent study of 300 corporate gift buyers that was published in Forbes.
They reported that overall, corporate gifts substantially positively impacted relationships with their clients. In addition:
- 80% said corporate gifts have improved relationships with clients
- 45% reported a substantial benefit in making the client feel valued
- 43% also reported a substantial benefit in customer loyalty
Significantly, they said it gave them a deeper emotional connection with their clients. And it’s these deeper connections that lead to improved sales, more repeat business, and those all-important referrals.
Nicola Watson, Marketing Manager at Marshall Chan Yahl Real Estate Agency is one of our clients, and a dedicated advocate for thoughtful, corporate gifting. Nicola believes the essence of giving gifts is about building better relationships.
‘We gift to our clients to show we care, and to establish, maintain and strengthen client relationships,’ says Nicola.
So, if you want to give your client a gorgeous surprise, and benefit your business, here’s our top 5 tips:
1. Give Gifts that Add Value to your Clients’ Lives
An easy way to understand this is to think about items that people need, use, or consume – that don’t clutter!
Functional items for the home like beautiful bathroom essentials, or stylish kitchen and dining necessities will be loved and used by your clients long after settlement has passed.
When it comes to consumables, indulgent food and drink will help make memories in those first few nights in the new home.
A clever option is to combine them: a stylish picnic basket packed with a camphor cutting board, a silver cheese knife, and delicious wine, chocolate and crackers means something to enjoy immediately as well beautiful, functional items that will be used, and even treasured, for a long time.
There are so many choices and combinations that we can customise, just for you.
2. Focus on Quality
Not all gifts are created equal. A simple internet search or look on Reddit will tell you how people feel about a generic bottle of wine grabbed from a box behind the reception desk!
Move beyond token gestures and give your client a gifting experience they won’t forget - luxury, quality items to show that you value them, that they will want to keep, and that will make them smile whenever they use them.
3. Individualise Each Gift
Nicola from Marshall Chan Yahl Real Estate Agency says when choosing or planning gifts, tailoring the gift to each client is an important part of the process.
‘Gifting something to our clients that we know they will enjoy or appreciate. Every client is different, so building the relationship and understanding what they like, or dislike, is important.’
Some clients might love indulging in food and drink, while others might talk about styling their new bathroom. Matching gifts to your client’s interests will make a memorable impression.
Clients who are focussed on the environment and recycling, or who only buy Australian made will be delighted with gifts that match their values.
In fact, right now, people are choosing Australian-made more than ever before.
One of our best-selling corporate gifts is the New Home Starter Gift Box filled with practical, beautiful, and indulgent items that are refillable, reusable and recyclable.
The dishwash liquid is eco-friendly and biodegradable, and the cellulose sponges made from natural wood pulp and cotton fibres are absorbent and compostable. The aromatherapy infused candle is made from soy wax (an environmentally friendly and renewable resource), and the cotton tea towels will look stylish in any kitchen for years to come.
Getting to know your client can make all the difference.
4. Choose Your Timing
The process of buying, selling, or building a home can be an emotional one, which some clients may find stressful, but carefully selected gifts along the way can keep the relationship strong, right through to settlement, or handover, and beyond.
Nicola says that at Marshall Chan Yahl Real Estate Agency they don’t just gift on settlement.
‘We generally send gifts to our clients at any stage of the sales process – sometimes at the start of the campaign, upon exchange and at settlement,’ she explains. It’s a way to maintain connection and convey their ongoing appreciation.
Research shows that when it comes to gifts, we underestimate how much joy the person receiving the gift will feel.
We also underestimate how much people enjoy receiving a gift that is ‘riskier’ – when the giver takes a chance to gift something bolder than wine or standard chocolates.
So, a programme of beautifully designed small gifts for various stages of the journey will be guaranteed to surprise your client and make them smile, and help the experience feel better all-around.
5. Wrap it with Love
It’s not just what’s inside the package that counts. Make it a total experience for your client with a beautifully presented gift that shouts WOW!
It’s also where you can add your own unique branding with your logo, brand colours or simply a tag line.
We beautifully wrap, box, and ribbon your gifts to represent your brand and reinforce your business identity -- and ensure a lasting, professional impression.

You’ve heard the saying first impressions matter. But did you know there’s an opposite? It’s known as the Recency Effect, and it’s a powerful tool to boost your business.
The recency effect is humans’ natural bias to better recall information that comes at the end. The end of a list. The end of a story. The end of an experience. It means if a business transaction or experience feels positive at the end, it’s how the overall experience is remembered.
Buying and selling property is stressful for every client, therefore settlement gifts are invaluable to future business. They leave a positive impression with your client, making them feel valued and appreciated – which can translate into recommendations to friends, family and colleagues looking for an agent they can trust.
'People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel'. –Maya Angelou

If you’re a property developer, you know how long it can take for a build to be completed. Now imagine how that feels for your clients, waiting for their dream home to be ready for them to move in…
It’s an emotional experience that can be tough on homebuyers, but carefully selected celebration gifts for each milestone can keep the relationship strong, right through to settlement and beyond.
Here are our top tips for property developers to select meaningful settlement gifts:
1. Don’t give gifts that clutter - give quality gifts your clients can use. Think functional items in the home like beautiful bathroom essentials, or kitchen and dining necessities.
2. Tailor the gift to the build – they can match aesthetically to the appearance or personality of the build - or team it to its particular features, such as a sophisticated spa pack for homes/complexes with a pool.
3. Look at what’s trending – key remotes, phone accessories, there’s all sorts of ‘latest's’ for the home that you can gift to your client, especially in the tech world.
4. Make it personal – adding a handwritten card is a timeless touch that shows you value their business.

It’s no secret that happy clients are the key to business, and that everyone loves a gift. But how can you send a gift that not only shows your client how valuable they are to you, but also leaves an indelible mark for your brand?
There are 2 simple steps to making your gifts a success:
1. Tailor your gift to the client.
Show your client that you understand them! Choose gifts that add value to their lives – something they need, something they’ll use time and again, or something they can’t wait to consume.
For example, has your client just settled on a house? A luxurious handwash, soy candle and plush hand towel will help that house feel like home. Or do they plan to celebrate before they unpack? A bottle of bubbly, chocs and crackers teamed with a serving board and cheese knife will give them a memorable first night in.
2. Customise the gifts with your unique style.
Branding on corporate gifts reinforces your business identity and leaves a lasting image, as well as saying thank you to your client. Imagine your logo on the gift boxes, ribbons, or the gifts themselves.
And don’t forget to think beyond your logo! Do you have a signature font? What about your brand colours or your tagline? These are all great options when it comes to customising gifts – whatever suits your style.

Have you ever received a lovely bottle of plonk, a pretty mug, or a box of chocolates from a client? And while you appreciated it, it didn’t leave a lasting memory. Perhaps it was something you could buy from a local shop, or once they handed it over, you forgot which client gave it to you.

🤦♀️All too often, the responsibility for client gift-buying gets passed around colleagues, because no one really wants to do it.
We get it. Ordering gifts can be difficult. Finding something original, something different to last year is tough. And it’s also important to strike the right tone, depending on the type of organisation and their working relationship with you.
😊 However, it doesn’t have to be a chore. That’s why we offer a fully customised service, so we can take the stress out of ordering gifts that will show your appreciation.
So why not stop procrastinating and get ordering? Our 10% early-bird discount is still available https://lnkd.in/gMATVFMZ

It’s important to acknowledge and celebrate our clients and staff at Christmas. Especially with the year we’ve had!
Still, it can be challenging to think of a gift that is original, suitable and invokes the kind of luxury you want when saying thank you to someone. That’s why it’s worth thinking about customised Christmas gifting to get it just right.
Some considerations when choosing gifts include:
· The type of business and employees
· Whether there are any restrictions on the food you can give
· If there’s any way to theme the gift towards something, such as a special project
· How many people you want to buy for and your budget
We offer full consultation on all customised Christmas gifting. If you need some inspiration, give us a call or email and we’ll be happy to help!

This is a great quote I found the other day when I was thinking about the importance of feeling valued –particularly under the current circumstances!
One very important area which we should not overlook is to show our clients they are appreciated. It’s a tough time and many businesses are hurting, so we should really value those who continue to support ours.
What’s a thoughtful gift you’ve received recently that made you feel valued? How do you show clients they’re valued?

I firmly believe that being kind is so important right now. It’s easy to get caught up with our own struggles during a pandemic and forget that others might be having a worse day than us.
💕While we hear stories about kindness in our personal lives, it is important to show kindness in our working lives as well.
🎁 We’ve had a lot of orders lately for our gift baskets from people wanting to show their staff they’re appreciated, or to show a client they value their custom during these difficult times. These types of orders really warm my heart.
If you need any help or inspiration, please see our website or get in touch with us.
How are you spreading kindness at work?

😔 We know our staff who are working in lockdown are probably feeling a bit down. They can’t work alongside their colleagues, are probably juggling multiple responsibilities in work and home life or simply feeling lonely.
With all this in mind, it might be worthwhile to think about spending some money on gifts or other incentives to boost staff morale. It doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult. What it does have to be is thoughtful.
🤔 We get a lot of people coming to us asking for ideas for bespoke gifts for their staff, and so we take them through a range of questions, like the age and demographics of their staff and what they like to do. That way, we can provide them with a unique and customised gift that we know their staff will enjoy. Sounds like a great way to boost staff morale to me 😊.
What have you done in the past to boost staff morale?

While Monday has never been anyone’s favourite day, we’re all feeling more fatigued than usual right now. Just have a look at these stats from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
28% of people feel nervous
26% feel everything is an effort
24% feel restless or fidgety
So, it’s worth thinking about ways to motivate your staff and get their week off to a great start. Why not try sending them a gift to give their morale a boost, like a:
☕ A nice coffee or tea
😋 Some delicious gourmet food
What do you do to help your staff get the week off to a good start?
