With the most wonderful time of the year coming up, it’s time to launch our holiday posts to get everyone in a festive mood! 

Today, we’re exploring how to curate the perfect holiday gift kit since they’ve become so popular! They provide endless options to curate by theme and preferences/hobbies, and there is so much creativity potential compared to giving a singular gift. Maybe your recipient loves snacking—add a jar of smoky spicy roasted almonds and bag sea salt caramels to the kit. What foodie can resist that? 

Whether you’re gifting for your client or employee, we’ve got a planning checklist and product ideas to make these your best gifts yet. The best part? You can customize these products with your logo or other colours!

But first! 

1. Get to know your recipients 

What are their hobbies? Favourite items? Which products can be problem-solvers for them? What do they need? (Maybe they just got a new house, which means that homegoods such as coasters, candles, and plants might be great options!) Are they more interested in practical products or experiences? If you’ve gifted them in the past, what stood out for them? 

Thinking about these questions is a great start—not only does it help you understand your recipient, but if you’re doing this for multiple people, you can start a spreadsheet to find similarities and patterns that can be leveraged for better deals and pricing. 

If you don’t know the answers to any of these questions, it might be time to search them up on social media and get clues about their lifestyle! After all, the most meaningful and appreciated gifts are the ones they actually want. 

2. Look for gifting inspiration

Platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Etsy are fantastic for generating ideas and finding current trends. (E.g. air fryers were raved about on social media and saw tremendous growth in sales—admit it, did you buy one due to the hype?) 

To make corporate and client gifting easy, we’ve curated some top notch products in our Boss Holiday catalogue, which contains everything from food to tech to outdoor apparel. If you’re looking to support local vendors this season, we also have our Made in Canada catalogue!

3. Source products 

The last and most challenging step is sourcing! After all, you probably want the best value for your money and fast shipping, but also strong customer support when things don’t go as planned. Finding the right supplier can be a challenge with so many options available, and even riskier if you’re planning to spend a lot for your first order. With current shipping delays, some questions to ask your supplier would be costs and delivery times. 

Our team at Boss Promotions has dealt with our fair share of stress and frustrations sourcing products nationally and internationally. However, this has honed our sourcing skills, so feel free to leave all the hard work to us! With in-house fulfillment and assembly services to ensure that every piece of merchandise is checked for quality and accuracy, we’re seasoned pros when it comes to corporate and client gifting.
