Corporate Year-end Gifts to Explore

The end of the year is an exciting time for most of us. We’re busy planning restful holidays, looking forward to the time we’re going to spend with loved ones, and being grateful for all our successes. In the corporate world, the end of the year is all about reflection and planning for the year ahead. Whether you want to thank your team for all the hours and effort they’ve put in, or you want to appreciate your clients for their loyalty, corporate year-end gifts should definitely be on your mind. A year as long and fruitful as 2019 warrants gifts of appreciation. So, while you fill up with the excitement of closing this chapter and beginning a new one, have a look at NetFlorist’s range of corporate gifts for the end of the year. From small desk-drops to sweet treats and pamper hampers, this comprehensive range is a perfect place to start.

Year-end Gifts for Clients

Clients and customers have an endless list of choices when it comes to products and services. Even after they’ve chosen to work with you, those choices remain. In a competitive business landscape, customer retention is at the forefront of the growth of any company. A year-end gift is just the way to stay on your clients’ minds as the year draws to a close, but it’s also a way to show them that they’re never taken for granted. Remind them that they’re not just a number with some of the best year-end gift ideas for clients:

Coffee and Tea Blends

Tea and coffee gifts are refreshing, sophisticated and loved by many. Through the use of enticing packaging and the finest blends, NetFlorist has managed to put together the kinds of tea and coffee gifts that are irresistible to the connoisseur! Give a valued client a fresh and invigorating combination of brews like the Coffee of Thanks Capsule Set. A sleeve that bears a thank you message completes these delicious capsules. And for the tea-lovers, a Personalised Thank You Tea Tin is just as invigorating. This exotic blend of infused green tea arrives in a keepsake tin, perfectly personalised to show them just how much they are valued!

 

Gourmet Gift Hampers

Gourmet treats are a failproof way to impress those who employ your services. The gourmet gifts range for 2019 is curated to give you (and your clients) a choice between the sweet, the savoury and the all-rounders. They’re sure to feel utterly spoilt with an Amarula Gourmet Snack Basket, generously filled with the kinds of snacks that the year-end calls for: truffles, fudge, Belgian chocolate, and a bottle of Amarula Cream Liqueur that’s sure to get their festive season off to a great start.

 

Your top customers deserve only the best gifts. A JC Le Roux Celebration Basket is a spectacular way to solidify relationships while thanking them for trusting you as much as they have. Aptly named a celebration basket, this gift is filled with good cheer and good food!

 

Personalised Pens

They say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. If you’re looking for a corporate year-end gift idea that’s small but significant, pick a personalised pen. NetFlorist has taken classic Parker Pens and presented them in elegant personalised boxes for an added special touch – one that any client would love.

 

Bath and Body Hampers

For a long-standing client that you’ve grown to call a friend, a bath and body gift is suitable. After a long year, they deserve some pampering! NetFlorist’s range of bath and body gifts gives a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Charlotte Rhys gift sets like the Soap Sensation Hamper have become popular for their refreshing combinations and unique scents. From the crisp aquatic notes of St. Thomas, to the zesty scents of No. 17 or the piquant blends of Lime and Ginger, each hamper is beautifully uplifting and sure to be appreciated.

 

Year-end Gifts for the Team

When employees receive gifts, it’s an acknowledgement of the fact that they are invaluable to the success of a business. Year-end gifts for staff and colleagues are certainly about appreciation, but they’re also about celebrating the past 365 days. As such, they need to be thoughtful, useful and fun! Here’s are some corporate year-end gift ideas that they’ll actually like:

Gadgets and Tech Sets

Gadgets have become a central part of the modern working world. There are few things we can get done without the help of technology, and that’s why gadget gifts are an ideal year-end surprise for any team. At NetFlorist, these gifts are useful, compact and often personalised! Give them a gift that ticks all the right boxes, like a personalised tech set. In a stunning hue of your choice (or theirs), it includes all their desktop essentials, with the personal touch of their name and a unique message from the sender.

 

Sweet treats

Few can resist the allure of a treat that they can enjoy no matter where they are. When it comes to confectionery, NetFlorist has pulled out all the stops. Let their year-end gift be a prelude to their holiday season by gifting them a Happy Holidays Fruit Cake Jar. Presented in beautiful black gift boxes with a cheerful message on them, these cake jars are sweet in every way. If you’d like to stay on the safe side, Festive Milk Chocolate Slabs are your best bet. They’re small, sweet, and just enough to show appreciation.

 

Succulents

Ah, the succulent… A gift with the ability to brighten their workspaces, and even their homes! These low-maintenance plants are presented in unique and wonderful ways, as with this Personalised Succulent Named Mug, or this Personalised Succulent Jar. There’s also something about being able to nurture a plant from the moment you receive it. Succulents might be the most sentimental of these year-end gifts!

 

Travel mugs

If you’ve got a team fuelled by a hot beverage of some sort, personalised travel mugs will hit the nail on the head! NetFlorist’s range of ceramic travel mugs includes optional extras like coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Spoil them with gifts that will get them through the day, whether they’re rushing to meetings, or chasing deadlines at their desks. This Personalised Ceramic Travel Mug, with some sachets of creamy hot chocolate, is a perfect corporate year-end gift!

 

The bottom line

It’s the last phase of the year; everyone is experiencing a heady combination of fatigue and excitement. For clients and colleagues alike, there is no better time to receive a gift that shows sincere appreciation and acknowledgement of their value. Stay ahead of the year-end gifting season, solidify partnerships and boost morale with marvellous year-end gifts from NetFlorist!
