Our Valentine’s Day Gift Collection is off the hook, we’re prepping all our florists for the big day, and we’re even making some time for ourselves to celebrate, too. Since Valentine’s falls on a Thursday this year, why not make the office feel a little more kindhearted, too? Here are some cute ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at the office. Tip #1 Send joy to the breakroom with shareable sweets! Delicious treats that can be shared are a perfect way to celebrate. And when you have the opportunity to make them Valentine’s Day-themed, why not make it cutesy? The team will love the sweets and enjoy the break, too.   Tip #2 Send individual Valentine’s Day gifts to the staff! No matter what industry you work in, it’s safe to say that every employee wants to know that they are valued, and the work they do is noticed. Sending your employees a little gift that says “You’re appreciated!” is always a good idea, and Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to do so. Tip #3 Brighten the Lobby with a Valentine’s Bouquet When a client or customer walks into your office, what is the first thing that you want them to notice? A lot of people would say that a welcoming reception area gives an air of respectability and organization. Therefore, adding a bright and beautiful Valentine’s Day-themed bouquet is the perfect touch.   Comment Below How do you celebrate...

Writing Thank You Card Messages for Business

The Psychology of Business Gifting

In the United States, business gift giving is an industry valued at nearly $22 billion dollars per year. Billion. Companies give to their employees, their clients and their partners on many different occasions, especially during the holidays. Why is business gifting held at such a high value, you ask? Because of the return on investment. Overall, the psychology of business gifting works in two ways. First, it sends a message of appreciation (or enticement, or inspiration) to recipients, and second, it serves as a reminder of your brand or company. Even when you know the ground rules of corporate gift giving, making sure your gifts achieve your intended goal can be a bit overwhelming. The feeling can also continue when you stop to consider what the budget may be. But remember this: spending money on a gift is an investment. You’re investing in improving the impression a person has about you and your company. Sending the right business gifts at the right time motivates action. You may want to inspire your sales team, boost your employees, solidify customer loyalty or close a prospect. While most companies send gifts primarily during the holidays, making gifting a part of your business plan really should be a year-round strategic endeavor that all departments looking to build relationships should pursue. Prove You Pay Attention To Your Recipients. This gift-giving concept has a much bigger impact than you might think! In a recent business gifting study, 88% of people said they wished that the business gift was more suited to their actual interests. 90% said they didn’t want to get generic promotional “swag” –...

Seven Sensational Coffee and Tea Gifts

Here at GiftTree we consider ourselves quite the wine connoisseurs (unless you’re in IT, in which case, it’s beer). But one thing we can all agree on? We love our morning coffee and tea. Amy, our catalog producer, loves combining a bag of chai tea and a bag of green tea to sip on her morning commute. Jory in Purchasing takes his coffee as dark roasted and black as the night, and I myself enjoy a blonde roast with a little bit of hazelnut and a few tablespoons of half & half.

Three Easy Ways to Love Your Workweek

It’s no secret in this day and age – stress can do an incredible amount of harm. According to The American Institute of Stress, the top cause of stress in the United States is, in fact, job pressure. Over 70% of American adults say they experience negative physical and mental symptoms directly caused by stress. With the demands placed on the roles of the American economy, business and working classes, it’s no wonder we’re more stressed out than ever. However, there are little things you can do to help lessen the blow of a tough day in the office. Here are three easy ways to love your workweek just a little bit more, and make the atmosphere at work a little easier to handle. 1. Chill! Make sure you unwind after a long day. Stressful days at the office or running around town require downtime in the evening. Take the time to relax and shake off the day’s tension so that you can feel rejuvenated and ready for the next day. Here’s a quick list of easy things you can do that may help you wind down: Walk the dog around the neighborhood or local park. Sit down with your spouse or family and enjoy dinner slowly. Take a hot bath – epsom salts,  bath bombs and face masks are great additions. Curl up under a lamp with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of hot tea.     2. Deck Your Desk! Make your workspace an environment that you actually enjoy being in. Studies show that a well-designed office space can increase productivity and...

How To Determine Your Business Gifting Budget

While it seems relatively simple, giving business gifts is actually a pretty complicated process. How much is too much? You want to make a great impression, and stay on your client’s mind. But gifts that are too lavish and over-the-top? Big no-no. Gifts that are understated? You run the risk of looking cheap or being unmemorable. Finding the balance of a remarkable gift at a great price point can be tricky, but not with GiftTree! Our Shop by Price and Business Collections offer perfect gifts at many different price points. But first thing’s first: here are three helpful tips on how to determine your business gifting budget. Know the company’s gift-giving policies. Don’t risk the embarrassment of having to take back a gift because it violates a company’s policies. Before you give, familiarize yourself with these business gifting ground rules!   Consider the value of your relationship with your recipient. This helps figure out who should be on your list and how much to spend. If the net on a client is a  small amount per year, a gift with a high price point isn’t a financially wise move. But those clients who give you annual business of six figures? They deserve gifts that communicate the appropriate level of appreciation.   Give what you can realistically afford to give. Look at your overall budget and how many people you’re buying for, and make a conscious decision to give strategically. Which employees, partners and clients are most important to your company? One rule-of-thumb for always impressing executives is to spend from $100 to $1,000 per gift. And a great idea for leaving...
