I am sure we all at some point have done this and some of us still do this with the gifts we don’t like.
Coming back to the corporate gifting aspect, the ad just shows how important is it to give the right gift. If we cannot accept remotely bad gifts from our good friends and relatives then how can we accept bad gifts from corporations.
A bad gift goes in the Auto Forward mode, it keeps passing on. Some may say that its good for the brand that it keeps getting passed on, but one doesn’t realize that with every time it gets forwarded, a consumer knows your brand and will always remember it, BUT for the Wrong Reason. Users will never want to associate themselves with the brand that offers cheap or poor quality.

Therefore the importance to give good corporate gifts to your employees, suppliers, customers etc. i came across this article which said explains the improtance of giving.

“Give to the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you.”
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox, 1855-1919, Poet and Journalist.
