While chalking out a corporate gift strategy, it is very important to keep the return on investment (ROI) aspect in mind. Above all, treat a gift as a symbol of your business ethos: The gift should ideally be an apt reflection of the business, profession or hobby one is interested in, which would be the most appropriate gesture for any occasion. For instance, a stylish travel bag would be perfect if one’s business activity is related to tourism.

Another important consideration is whether or not to put a logo or not on your present. Many businesses prefer customized gifts, which carry a logo, hoping to create a lasting impression in the minds of recipients. When the item is a utility one likely to be used on day-to-day basis like a calendar, or coffee mug, there is a tackiness quotient to consider.

Customized items with a logo may make great trade show premiums or perfect leave-behinds, but they could never be considered deeply heartfelt gifts. It makes sense to indulge in blatant self-promotion only in cases where a gift’s logo does not create emotional damage to the user’s ego. In backdrop of above tips, here are some cost-effective gifting ideas to consider: watches, reading lamps, pen holders, mugs/cups, sculptures, flower pots, perfumes, and candle holders, among others.
