It’s not too early to start Holiday Gift Preparation

With August just a few days away, the sights, sounds and smells of autumn are right around the corner. You might have Trick or Treating with your kids on your mind, but for corporate customers, planning their holiday gift giving list can never start too early. From the compiled list of recipients, to confirming up to date addresses, creating a budget, etc., early preparation is just a means to show everyone just how "on top" of things you really are!

Outside of your list of gift recipients, addresses are the most important factor in early preparation. When you have a list of 500 or more recipients, confirming those addresses Executive Wine Gift Basketcan be quite time consuming and having them checked ahead of time will alleviate any shipping issues that may arise. Delegate this task if your list is quite large so you don't have to carry the burden. And while checking addresses, make sure if the gift is going to an office building with multiple suites, that the suite number is included with the address!

Another important factor in early preparation is actually knowing if your recipient's company policy allows gifts to be received. Believe it or not, many company's no longer allow their employees to receive gifts at work as to not show preferential treatment to a specific client. This would make for an embarrassing situation for many. Simply check with an Admin. Assistant or Human Resources to confirm if the company may receive gifts.

One other very important early preparation recommendation is if you are planning to send a wine gift basket to a customer, double check on our website to see if the gift you have selected is available for shipping to your recipients state. Many states do not allow certain wine or alcohol labels to cross state lines due to state law restrictions, so an early check is a great way to confirm if you should send a cookie gift basket in lieu of wine gifts.

There are many steps you can take to start preparing your holiday gift giving list early, and The Gift Basket Pros are always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Just contact one of our friendly Corporate Gift Services representatives, ask any questions you might have, and start making that list and checking it twice. The holiday season will be here before you know it!
