Prep for the cold months ahead and get started on holiday gift planning!.
For friends, family and employees, we’ll help you stay warm and get creative this year.
Every year around this time we start thinking of two things:
- How are we going to stay warm, cozy and stylish over the next few months?
- What are we possibly going to buy for all the people – friends, family, employees – in our life for the holidays?
Two burning questions that are inevitable in November it seems. Luckily, if you’re in the same boat you’ve come to the right place! We don’t have the answer to everything in life, but we do have the answers (and solutions!) to these timely questions. And naturally, they all include personalized, customized high-quality promotional gear and products. Because you, your loved ones, and your employees deserve the best this time of the year!
“You don’t build a business, you build people, and then people build the business.”
According to Promotional Products Association International, gift-giving is proven to increase business activity hence, increasing the return on investment.
Thoughtful gifting made easy for your dedicated employees.
So how do corporations, organizations, small businesses build people? By leveraging gifting for employees! Not only do customized employee gifts show your appreciation for their outstanding work and dedication throughout the year, but they are a tool to foster engagement and loyalty, as well as help build a unique culture that resonates with your company’s values, leadership, and offerings to consumers.
Despite what you may think, your employee is your number one consumer. And after a harrowing year and a half that has forced many businesses to focus on the core things that make human existence more meaningful and worthwhile, it’s more important than ever to intentionally recognize your employees and build genuine loyalty.
While there are many occasions wherein you can use gifting to build teams, attract and retain talent and build a unique company culture that resonates with your employees and management, the holiday season is the most obvious of occasions. Just like the season itself, employee holiday gifting is a celebration that brings people together. There is a feeling of ‘bonhomie’ that is created amongst the employees. It helps to show your team that you recognize their talents and you genuinely care for their well-being and growth. They will feel motivated and continue to put in their best efforts to create a meaningful impact within the company year after year. After all, we know that many of the best ideas and solutions come from within the organization.
So now what?
You know and believe in the importance of meaningful employee gifting, but what items should you gift them? Here’s where we come in with solutions!
For the employees celebrating a milestone year
These employees deserve something that stands out from the crowd. Celebrating a milestone 5, 10, 15, 20+ years is a big deal! We have many amazing gift options available including stunning high-quality glass and marble awards that can be expertly etched with the employee’s name and milestone achievement. It makes for a beautiful statement piece that can be cherished and showcased for years to come. If you’d prefer something a little more practical, perhaps pull together a beautiful, customized gift set with a handy duffle bag, blanket, and fleece pullover. The perfect gear for our winter season!
For the employees who are always cold (there’s always a few in the office!)
Fleece blankets and warm zip-up jackets are the way to go! Not only do they work outside the office, but your employees can keep them at their desks for when the AC is on a little too high or the heat dial is a little low. Blankets and jackets can be customized with names, slogans, and/or logos. We can get creative here!
For the employees who are into hats
Personalize a cap of any style (mesh back, full back, snapback, fitted, low profile) or since Vancouver winter can be pretty cold, why not try a toque (knitted with or without a pompom) to keep their noggin’ warm all season long. Our trusted suppliers have only the highest quality products that come in an array of colours and materials (hello, eco-friendly textiles) – making it an easy choice!
For if you’ve planned a holiday party/fun day
Make sure everyone is repping a fun, company-themed t-shirt or hoodie, and pair it with a branded mug or water bottle. We have eco-friendly and enviro-conscious options for all products to keep things fun while also protecting our planet!
As always, we are here to help you find the perfect gifts to show your employees you care. Connect with our creative team today for a discovery call and we’ll make the most of your employees’ holiday gift experience this year.
These moments of appreciation and celebration help build the highly motivated team and garner the employees’ loyalty. These teams will continually help your organization scale and build a sustainable eco-system for growth and prosperity.
If you don’t have employees, but you have family and friends you need personalized gifts for, we can help you out with that too!
From T-shirts to softshell jackets, hoodies, tracksuits (trending right now!), tote/duffle/laptop bags, backpacks, notebooks, and more, we can personalize/customize something for everyone on your holiday list. Even for those ‘super hard to buy for’ people. We got you!
Winter is a season of recovery and preparation – Paul Theroux
Keep warm this winter with cold-weather outerwear exclusives!
If you haven’t already, here’s your sign to changeover your closets and pull out your winter essentials – coats, sweaters, pants, and cold-weather accessories. You may just find that you’re missing some key pieces. Or perhaps you’ll want to spruce up your collection. Either way, we can make sure you spend winter in Canada the right way; warm and cozy.
Hoodie and track pants
Living in one of Canada’s most popular cities has its perks! With truly incredible landmark sites like the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Granville Island, and Stanley Park, it’s easy to make weekend plans outdoors. So make sure to stay comfy and stylish as we head into the cooler temperatures in a personalized tracksuit; a hoodie and sweatpants made for exploring our beautiful city! What could be better? We’ve got sets made from sustainable materials and some that are fleece-lined, ready to keep you toasty when the snow comes. Customize with a name, logo, quote…the sky’s the limit when it comes to being creative.
Cold weather vests
Have a team that likes to take on the cold conditions when they’re out of the office? Or maybe your team is outside to work all fall and winter long? Either way, a vest is a perfect article to brand. Look clean and professional, and feel cozy to the core in a quality, high efficiency water-resistant or fleece thermal vest. Easy to style and layer, and even easier to personalize, these are a no-brainer for taking on winter in Vancouver.
From the office to the forest. Make a statement this winter in a high-quality thermal winter jacket. Essential protection in extreme cold, our winter parka options deliver the highest level of protection from the elements, with classic Arctic explorer designs. Stay warm in -35°C temperatures with any number of jackets in our collection! And the great thing about our products is that we can silkscreen, vinyl print, and embroidery just about any of them, so our creative team is sure to find a customization option that works best for you.
And don’t forget, these amazing products work well as employee/holiday gifts as well 😉
