It’s true that we started out as wedding welcome gift business back in 2014 but we quickly realized that corporations desire the same level of custom gift design for corporate events, corporate retreats, and corporate holiday gifts as well. Not to mention, they want the heavy weight of gifting lifted off of their shoulders so they can focus on whatever it is they do best!
It’s true that corporate gifts are typically more unisex, or even lean masculine, and can be drastically different aesthetically from the gift bags and gift boxes we design for our wedding planners and couples. But we absolutely love the variety that our corporate projects bring and fully embrace unisex and masculine projects! Speaking of unisex gifts, I’m excited to tell you all about one of our favorite projects from 2017 for Ensemble Health Partners’ corporate retreat at the Paws Up Resort in Montana. We selected rugged pine crates and aimed to fill them with locally-inspired items to welcome their clients to town and kick off the retreat on a good note!
We included a cedar coaster set with the state of Montana engraved on each coaster along with local jam, rustic trail mix, locally-sourced Bequet caramels, and metal wine tumblers featuring the logo of the resort! While all of these items are amazing and would delight almost anyone showing up to a corporate event, I personally believe that the custom welcome letter is just as impactful as the snacks, sweet treats and keepsakes. In this case, the paper element was a short note from the CEO along with a motivational Henry Ford quote. We made sure that the letters were branded with our client’s logo and featured their exact branding colors to remain consistent with all other marketing collateral they’d be receiving throughout the event.
The welcome letters were positioned inside the crates and we designed branded gift tags for the outside of each gift, again, featuring their logo to keep the gifts looking professional and polished even though they’re not the typical “corporate swag” one might expect to receive at a work event.
And for the last finishing touch! We sourced ribbon in their branding colors to close off the crates. Again, keeping things in line with the brand adds a level of professionalism yet the gifts still look and feel thoughtful and personal.
We absolutely love how these turned out and from what we hear, the recipients were delighted. Music to my ears! Let us know what you think of this gift design in the comments.
