Ingraining the concept of gifting within an organization can have many advantages. While businesses are all about numbers, profit and loss statements, and balance sheets, developing a culture of commemorating special events and festivals with gifts is like adding that ‘humane’ touch to the business. It just connects your workforce and helps in building ever-lasting bonds with them.
In India, exchanging gifts is an inherent part of celebrations and with Diwali just little over a month away, it is indeed the right time to start planning for your corporate gifts for clients, customers, workforce, and the VIPs.
While this Diwali will be a bit different from other years due to the ongoing pandemic crisis, the role of gifts will be all the more crucial. While we cannot hold celebrations or get-togethers for Diwali, personalizing gifts and gift box packaging can be a wonderful way to stay connected and exude the festive vibe.
We have enlisted for you some great ideas and items for all types of your corporate gift box packaging needs that also have an element of functionality along with the stunning visual appeal.
First, let’s talk about gifts!
There are many gifting items that you may explore. Of course, there’s the classic sweets/dry fruit boxes you may be looking at, however, we would advise you to get a little more creative and instead opt for handmade bakery savories, desserts, or wholesome food goodies if you are wanting to go for food items for your employees, esteemed clients, and suppliers, etc.
In case you want to do away with food-related gifts, there are a lot of other options too that are unique and durable.
For example, with winters soon approaching, you can order exclusive quilts, like the authentic Jaipuri block print ones. They are not just gorgeous looking but high on utility, too, and would stay with the people for a long, long time.
In the wake of the ongoing pandemic where most of the people are working from home, stationery and organizing sets will also be thoughtful and functional formal presents.
Going a step further you can also opt for customized brand stationery with your company’s name inked/engraved on pens, diaries, calendars, etc.
Second, understand how you want to pack or wrap your gifts!
You indulge a lot of time planning the gifts and gift packaging just elevates the surprise and delight element of your gifts. Do you agree?
So, it is important to choose the right kind of packaging for your gifts so that they make a stunning first impression and catch the attention.
1. Food Packaging
If you are opting for the classics or food items, find the right box that will fit all the packets nicely. For example, these handi boxes are lovely to pack sweets, bakery items, and dry fruits.
Another great option to celebrate the vibe of Diwali could be this symbolic Diya box which you may fill up with dry fruits or handmade chocolates.
Round boxes also make for an excellent choice for cookies, and delicacies like Ghewar, finni, ladoos, etc., can fit well in them.
These pyramid-shaped and sandook-shaped boxes are ideal for bakery items like cupcakes, muffins, brownies, etc.
If you are looking to plan a food and goodies hamper then an open basket or tray would be ideal as it can fit different sizes and types of items that can be arranged & wrapped beautifully.
2. Stationery & WFH-friendly gift packaging ideas
For personalized stationery, you can assemble them in stationery hampers like these which are not just great as boxes but can be forever used as organizers. You may include a diary, a pen, a memo pad, paperweight, etc., in it and wrap it up with clean film or wrapping paper.
If you are going for one or two items like a set of handmade paper notebooks or file folder and a notebook, etc., you may wrap them with gift finishes and wraps by Ratan Jaipur available in quirky as well as festive designs.
3. Quilt and other linen items packaging
If you have chosen to ditch the stationery and sweets for this year and instead, you are thinking of gifting something more personalized and long-lasting like quilts, bedcovers, or dohars, then we have the perfect packaging idea for you!
