Don’t let finding that “perfect gift” be stressful. We are here to help you make connections, show your appreciation, and leave a lasting impression with your holiday gift giving!
Why is giving important?
We all know the basics for being healthy- exercise, sleep, eating well. But did you know that social connection is just as important? Social connection improves physical health and psychological well-being. A lack of social connection is a greater detriment to health than obesity, smoking and high blood pressure.
“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irresistible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.”.
On the the flip side, strong social connection leads to a 50% increased chance of longevity. Physical distancing does not have to be social distancing.
For most companies, Holiday Business Gifting has become a standard practice. The opportunity to forge stronger bonds with customers and improve engagement is too valuable to pass up. This year, it is not only an opportunity to connect and grow relationships but it could significantly impact their well being.
2020 Connections (or rather lack thereof) Impact
The pandemic has had a significant impact on our mental health. According to the CDC, “symptoms of anxiety disorder and depressive disorder increased considerably in the United States during April–June of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019 (1,2). “
Let’s Make Some Connections And Improve Our Health!
Gift giving can help! Most people like receiving things because it makes them feel connected. It makes them feel like a part of something bigger than themselves.
Feeling connected has benefits!
- Increased happiness. (In one compelling study, a key difference between very happy people and less-happy people was good relationships.)
- Better health.
- A longer life.
Now more than ever, it is vital to connect with employees and clients/ customers.
Food Gift Giving
We have all got to eat, right? But there is more to food than our basic physical needs.
Food is an important part of any celebration across the world, regardless of culture or religion. It can unite
and strengthen community bonds and helps to maintain a common identity among a group of people.
Food gifts are a preferable option for gift giving during the pandemic because they are practical, easy to ship, comforting and a good way to send treats to someone who cannot be visited due to physical distancing.
Sweet, salty or savory- we’ve got it.
Add custom packaging or messaging to make an even greater impact! (Ask us about special gift packages to include both hard goods and food!)
We could all use a little treat!
Give The Gift of Apparel
Custom apparel can instantly inject your team with a heavy dose of team spirit. When individuals are wearing the same colors, they feel connected. There is a sense of belonging to a group and a feeling that they have something in common with one another. (We are in this together.)
From button down to button up, biz-leisure, professional or casual wear, apparel unifies your team.
Accessorize with style and quality!
Gifting With A Greater Purpose
Did you know that many promotional products have a give back component? Your holiday gift can have a greater impact on the world! (Some of the giveback products featured in this video provide homes for troops, home construction products for Habitat for Humanity, school supplies for those in need, positive environmental change, support for high risk youth and more!)
Office, Technology, Home, Tools, Apparel, Food, Toys, Drinkware, Stress Relief, Sports, Outdoors, and MORE!
