4 Reasons to Choose a Quality Corporate Gift

When you think of corporate gifts, you probably think of cheap plastic pens and note pads collected at a trade show or given out in a bowl at office reception. There are plenty of places on the internet to find these corporate gifts, and while they do have their place in business, that place is not at an executive board table

Consider, instead, what kind of impression you want to make on your clients or executives. Standing out in the corporate world is difficult. The type of gift you present says a lot about your taste, your decision making, and your ability to make an impression. That’s why choosing a quality, even luxurious, corporate gift is so important.

Cheap vs. quality corporate gifts

It’s easy to search “corporate gifts” online and be inundated with websites that will sell you plastic pens, cheap water bottles, and notepads with your logo imprinted on them. These items are great for trade shows, where you need to make a quick impression, then move on to the next person.

In the boardroom or the office, however, cheap corporate gifts can really send the wrong message. Whether you’re trying to impress a new client or celebrate your team for a job well done, choosing a meaningful, quality gift can be difficult.

Quality corporate gifts show a culture that reflects how a client will be treated

Quality corporate gifts are a meaningful way to show that your company’s culture is one of respect and care. Offering a physical object debossed or engraved with your company’s logo gives the person receiving the gift a reminder of how they were, and will be, treated by the folks at your company. That kind of goodwill is invaluable in a corporate world overrun with millions of messages seeking a person’s attention.

You never have a second chance to make a first impression

Giving a high quality gift to a business partner, client, lead, or executive leaves more than a good impression. When you receive a well thought out gift from someone, it imprints itself on the brain in a positive way. If the gift is useful, like a pen or a coaster, it’s more likely to keep your brand top of mind for longer. That is the type of marketing that’s priceless.

Giving thanks in a world that only takes

Most importantly, a beautiful corporate gift generates a type of goodwill that is nearly impossible to find in today’s business world: gratitude.

It’s easy to forget that the person you’re trying to impress is a human being with feelings and emotions that determine the choices they make day to day, and that the gifts you give are more than just tools to elicit those emotions. Giving thanks to those who choose to trust you and your company is one of the best ways to stay top of mind and engender a strong partnership for years to come.

Belt Sizing

To size your new Acadian belt:

  1. Lay your current belt on a flat surface.
  2. Measure from where the leather bends back on itself at the buckle to the hole that you use most often.
  3. The number you get corresponds with the size of The Acadian belt. 
This way of measuring gives a more accurate and forgiving measurement for your belt. It may not match your pant size or current belt size.
