It is no news that you must have heard this term used somewhere or you must be a recipient of one or you are expecting one from your company or an organization which makes you happy and excited. But what is it really? what have you received or what will you receive? A corporate gift is a type of gift from a company (the company you work for) or another organization with no additional requirements from recipients, to express their gratitude for a job or service well done or delivered respectively, or it could be for another reason only known to the recipients and the companies in question. This type of gift unlike promotional gifts, carry no adverts on them.
Engraving the name of the recipient on the product to be gifted is just one way of corporately branding a gift. Corporate branded gift are products to be gifted which have been corporately branded (the act of engraving an identity on the product to be gifted by a company or an organization). This types of gifts are presented in numerous forms including expensive vacations, luxury rides, or any other expensive treatments (the popularity of these methods of gifting is increasing by the second). Due to this recent increase, organizations have outlined some policies to guide this kind of gifting.
Apart from the money spent on these gifts, the impression left by the corporate branded gift on recipient's mind is of great importance and will always be remembered. Some additional ways of personalizing a gift include engraving the name of the company, it's logo or it's business information on the gift rather than the name of the person who is to receive the gift. This will go a long way to give it an authentic appearance alongside a personalized experience. This could also boil down to encouraging the recipient to increase efficiency in his or her job or task.
Some manners in which this gift could come could also be in the form of portable and wearable products with either the names of the recipient, the company's name, logo or information printed on them. So, in total, as long as the gift can be identified by the name of the company, their logo or the name of the recipient, it can serve as a corporate branded gift.
