1. Avoid the holiday gifting rush

Order early and beat the Holiday Rush. Even as stock continues to improve, we always recommend securing your order while items are available. Our production partners are currently at a ten-working-day processing timeline. Occasionally, rush services can be made available. We suggest getting orders in before November.

2. Collect gifting inspiration

Collect inspiration for your 2023 Holiday gifting by flipping through this year’s Holiday Look Book. You’ll find a wide range of price points and interests. We suggest picking items that pair well together like something cozy with an edible treat or something active with a health-conscious item. If they’re quite the traveler, go with the latest travel gear or tech items.

3. Showcase company values

Add a printed piece to your Holiday gifting bundle that showcases your company values. It makes the experience more memorable and reminds recipients why they want to continue to support your brand. Printed pieces could be double-sided, have unique textures, and come in many sizes. If you’re not sure where to start, connect with our printing experts.

4. Personalize your gifting

The best gifts are personal. Now is the time to convey your gratitude for your employees’ hard work, your clients’ business, and your partners’ time. It’s an impactful moment. If done correctly, it can earn your business lasting respect and continued support. Use variable data to customize personal ‘Thank You’ letters with unique copy and unlimited signatures. Add personalized names, titles, and company logos to any promotional or apparel items with etching, engraving, embroidery, and unique decoration techniques.

5. Deliver holiday gifts seamlessly

Use services like custom kitting, fulfillment, and white-label drop shipping to deliver your Holiday gifting items with seamless execution. After you shop for what you want, ask us to handle kitting with custom-branded boxes using variable data integration to send to your individual recipients anywhere in the nation.
