The Corporate Kris Kringles

december 2

The holiday season is finally here! Companies left and right are planning out their parties and are trying to come up with the perfect gift for their employees. Of course, giveaways are a staple of  corporate Christmas celebrations, which is why it is the organizer’s job to make sure that everyone will have a good time with the program and that all of the employees would receive a great amount of giveaways and loot by the end of the night. May it be an elegant gift or a simple one, corporate giveaways should at least feature two main things, functionality and convenience, and both should be in favor of office activities. In such case, no need to look any further than our list of appropriate gifts this upcoming Yuletide season. Take note that these following items are tentative, and every suggestion should still be consulted with your superiors at work, unless you are given the freedom to plan everything out in one go.

1 .)Stress Balls
Christmas parties, along with the other festive events held at the office for that year, are meant to loosen up your employees and co-workers. It should be a time for them to have fun, a time for them to relax, a time for them break the ice with the people from the other department whom they might have come across with, but haven’t spoken to throughout the workdays. Indeed, parties should be a relaxing time for the employees, which is why the very first item on the list focuses on that very purpose. Stress balls are very therapeutic in the sense that employees can “squeeze” away their concerns. The thing about stress is that they tend to bottle up inside a person’s mind, inside a person’s emotion, hence, why stress balls would enable them to vent out their possible frustrations through a simple squeeze. It might seem silly at first, but there’s a reason why even company executives always have a few of these in their pockets, they know the importance of letting off steam rather than bottling them up.

2.)Stainless Mug

One of the most obvious choice for a corporate giveaway would have to be something that enables your co-workers or employees to refresh every once in a while. Being able to have their morning, afternoon, or evening fix of coffee would allow them to stay awake and be alert during the most critical parts of the day. If hot drinks aren’t their thing, however, they may also opt for a much cooler alternative, perhaps an organic fruit blend for that healthy office boost? Or how about a nice cold sip of soft drink to get that tiny dose of caffeine and sugar? With a stainless mug, the recipients would have options due to it being compatible with either hot or cold beverages. Of course, you may opt to consider the size of the container, as some of the employees may have liters in mind instead of a few ounces, but regardless, we can all agree that everyone needs their refreshments, and especially for those who would go out for meetings, a handy sturdy mug can do wonders for the day.

3.)Folding Umbrellas

Another obvious choice for a corporate giveaway, an umbrella is both fancy and functional, especially during the monsoon season. We can all agree that the Philippines has one of the most unpredictable weather patterns ever. Regardless of the weather reports earlier, you may find yourself running towards a shed due to the heavy afternoon rain, an unexpected occurrence in spite of the cool, sunny morning air. Perhaps it is just a mere indication of our tropical climate, hence, why employees should always be aware and ready when it comes to travelling outdoors. Part of the preparations should be bringing an umbrella for every meetings done outdoors. Not only would a nifty umbrella be a valuable tool to deflect the unwanted effects of the weather, it would also be a great opportunity to promote your company, as some umbrella manufacturers would allow you to customize and add in your logo, thus hitting two birds with one stone. Do keep in mind that the quality of the umbrella would also matter, as low standard materials would only flip the umbrella during strong winds. Aside from that, take note that we also specified this item as a folding umbrella, due to the fact that they are more convenient to walk around with, even compact enough to be put in your duffel bag during the trip.

The Season of Giving

DECEMBER 1

For employees and executives alike, nothing can be more exciting than the most anticipated yearly Christmas parties. Not only would it give everyone a well-deserved break from all of the hard work and stress brought about by deadlines and fierce negotiations, it would also be a perfect opportunity for co-workers to see what their officemates are like when not enclosed in a very professional demeanor.

The thing about parties is that people would be willing to show their wacky side, even amongst their most serious co-workers, further breaking the ice in an otherwise humorless setting. For the most part, fun is fun when the bosses decide to chime in as well, and all gloves are off to celebrate another Yuletide season. In lieu of this, nothing can provide more smiles in a company gathering other than gifts and giveaways.

Of course, it would fall on the boss and party organizers to decide which gifts would best fit the occasion, but if ever you’re one of the assigned committees to organize the whole thing and you have no idea whatsoever regarding the right corporate giveaways, worry no more, as we’ve enlisted a few suggestions for you.

1.) A Crafty Paperweight

While it may not be the obvious choice for an office equipment, paperweights usually do their job well, staying true to their purpose of setting documents in their place. No one wants to lose an important contract, no one wants to lose a valuable invoice, no one wants to lose those critical “minutes of the meeting.”

Yes, they may be considered as a lowly ornament at times, but even this lowly ornament does wonders that goes unappreciated most of the time. Of course, you wouldn’t want to give your employees something as boring as a circular rock, so instead, you’d go for one of those porcelain or plastic paperweights which comes in many designs and colors. Take note, however, that the boss or company executive may also have a say in this, so if ever they would want a customized paperweight with the company logo and color etched on it, then you may have to go for that instead. After all, the boss will definitely be always right.

2.) A Desk Calendar

Here something trivial, yet very functional that the employees would greatly appreciate, at least for the upcoming new year. A desk calendar would provide that well-needed reminder, especially if they’re the ones who are usually sent to outdoor meetings. Clients and business partners are meticulous when it comes to time, and what better way to show face then to show up on time, at the right date, at the right appointment. Marking down meetings in a calendar has been an act that has been done through the decades, with the rise of smartphones, people began to transition towards their “digital reminders,” but time and time again, studies have proven that information written down has a far better chance of being remembered than those which are merely typewritten. We also have to mention that desk calendar are customizable as well. You may even color code office events accordingly, this would of course have to be consulted with the higher ups of the company, since schedules should always be confirmed without further announcements and notices.

3.) Duffel Bag

Here’s something that employees would greatly appreciate, especially those who are sent to meetings almost on a daily basis. A duffel bag would greatly come in handy, due to the fact that it would be able to carry all of the necessities needed for the said appointment. An average employee would at least need to bring a cellphone, a pen and notebook set, the important documents for the meeting, a laptop, a wallet, and a flash drive.

These things may seem small, but if they were to be brought simultaneously in one go, the person carrying them would need a high-quality bag to contain them all. As a part of the organizing committee who would oversee the corporate giveaways, you may need to think about this carefully, a bag made of a strong, light weight material wouldn’t be too bad, especially as it would need to withstand the weight of the items being carried.

The Write Choices

NOVEMBER 2

For an employee, nothing is more important than a good pen and a notebook. Anything that would help them write down the takeaways from a meeting, anything that’ll help them remember the key points, anything that would remind them of appointments., Nothing would beat the retentive advantages of writing down information, an age old knowledge that has been proven from time and time again. In such case, if you happen to know someone whose job usually involves this type of activity, then you might be planning on going for a gift hunt, just to scout on the right writing tools and materials to present during the holidays. No worries, as we have come up with a list of suggestions to help you out in your search.

1.) A Ballpoint Pen

Yes, you’ve read that right, we specified the first one on the list as a ballpoint pen, and there’s a valuable reason why. We’ll get to that in a bit, but first, let us look into the importance of this specific pen. It is the most common choice when it comes to both students and employees. A few decades ago, pencils were a much preferred option, but due to the common phase of sharpening them after extensive use, people began to see the advantage of using a writing tool that doesn’t require you to wring repetitively each time the point dulls out. With ball pens, someone who needs to write immediately pull it out of their pockets, take out the cap, and proceed to take notes. Of course, more variety of ballpoint pens were made along the way, different colors and sizes were manufactured according to the needs of the people, and some were even sold in a set.

2.) A Notebook

What would writing materials be without notebooks? Yes, you may have bought your friend or co-worker a fancy-looking pen, but if they do not have any notebook then where are they going to jot down their notes? When it comes to notebooks, you actually have a lot of options. Some notebooks come with a hardcover, some notebooks come with the opposite, and some notebooks are either padded or quilted, either way, your main priority when selecting one as a gift would be the number of pages. If the recipient is one to write on a daily basis, then you’d need something that exceeds a hundred pages. Aside from that, you should also consider the quality, the thing about notebooks is that the paper quality affects the surface area, and a low quality paper may be easy to tear, something that could very well be an obstacle during extensive meetings, so you should choose wisely.

3.) Memo Pad Set

Now, here is something that the gift recipient may appreciate. A memo pad set is something so compact, yet so useful. They are basically useful during those times in which you’re being given very specific details, instructions, and information, and the only thing that you can do is to write them down and analyze them later. May it be for personal thoughts and ideas on the run, or particulars for or about your co-workers, family, and friends, a memo pad set is your go-to solution to preserve those details. Some of these details are even vital for daily activities, like a to-do list or reminders referring to scheduled appointments.

Gift Ideas On-the-Go

NOVEMBER 1
As an employer, one of the best things that you may give your employees this upcoming holiday season would be corporate giveaways. Not straying far from showing the spirit of giving, not only would these gifts act as a Yuletide gesture, it would also be considered a token of appreciation for all of the hard work that they have done during the whole year. Of course, it isn’t just about choosing a random item and then giving them straightaway after the Christmas party, but rather, presenting something that you’re sure they’d be most thankful for in the long run. “How may I accomplish this then?” you may ask. Simply put, by presenting them with something that they would be able to use on a daily basis. Office items which they can utilize to further their work, for example. Either that or you may provide them with a valuable work tool that would help them reach out to clients far better than before. In short, a gift that would amplify their skills, talent, and hard work tenfold. If your employees are the type to set up a meeting with potential clients and long-time business partners, choosing the right gift in the aforementioned manner would be very vital, which is why we had enumerated an appropriate list for you, for those driven employees who are always on-the-go.

1. An Elegant Wallet

Understandably, not all employees own a car. Whether it’s due to economic reasons or environmental ones, your hardworking employees aren’t always going to ride a comfortable air conditioned car. In such case, why not give them something that they may bring along in their travels? The fact that they’re usually outdoors for meeting, they may need to commute more often than not, hence, why an elegant wallet would be very practical and functional, holding in their fare money while comfortably sitting in their pockets. Wallets come in many shapes and sizes, though you should consider one which would match your employees fashion sense. The thing about wallets is that, they are not only mere containers for money, but rather, they are also considered a status symbol. Leather ones will always strike as a costlier adage rather than those which are made from other materials. And don’t even get us started on the metal finishes that some elegant wallets have, even going as far as to contain gold platings on the corners.

2. An Umbrella

We weren’t kidding when we said that this specific list would be for your employees who are always on-the-go. The Philippines has one of the most unpredictable weather patterns ever known to mankind. One minute you’re walking on sunshine, and then running towards a safety shed the next hour. Sudden rain and strong winds are a staple of the Philippine islands, an unavoidable indication of our tropical climate, hence, why employees should always be aware and ready when I comes to travelling outdoors. As their employer, they are your responsibility, and this is where umbrellas would come in. Not only would a nifty umbrella be a valuable tool to deflect the unwanted effects of the weather, it would also be a great opportunity to promote your company, as some umbrella manufacturers would allow you to customize and add in your logo, thus hitting two birds with one stone. Do keep in mind that the quality of the umbrella would also matter, as low standard materials would only flip the umbrella during strong winds.

3. Drawstring Bag

For a gift that screams on-the-go, this would be the perfect candidate. Bags are always a good thing to carry around, especially when your employees are usually assigned to attend outdoor meetings. Just think about it, with all of the stuff that they’d bring along for the ride, their pens and notebooks, their cellphones, their documents, their wallets, and even their tumblers, all of these wouldn’t fit in their coat pockets, let alone be practical enough to carry around by hand, hence, why a lightweight drawstring bag would be a great choice as a giveaway. Aside from the practicality of the design, you may also choose the colors that would match with the company motif, a sort of uniformed fashion statement, if you will. This would also serve as a way to show your clients and business partners that everyone in your company is united by a common goal of delivering exemplary service and great business, without sacrificing style and elegance.

A Mini Christmas: Pocket Gift Ideas for the Yuletide Season

Giveaways to Motivate

It’s not the size of the gift that matters, it would always be the thought that counts. This is true for the most part, as many of us are busy nowadays to even think up of a fairly sized gift for our loved ones, as a way to prepare for the upcoming holidays. In this case, any gift that involves glitz, glamor, and functionality would stand out the most, as long as it’s given straight from the heart. With this in mind, you might be trying to figure out what sort of gift would show your biggest appreciation towards them. Would ornaments suffice? Would the brand and model make up for the budget? Different questions, various gift ideas, and even lesser time to prepare (Christmas is just a 2 months away, after all). Well, set your worries aside as we’ve got you covered, with a few pocket-sized gifts that would really show your families, friends, workmates, and loved ones how much they mean to you.

1. A USB Drive

Modern problems require modern solutions. This gift really proves that big things comes in small packages. If the intended recipient is one to carry around huge data and important files for the whole duration of a work shift then this would be the perfect gift for them. Imagine all of the work reports, all of the contracts, all of the invoices, compiled and compressed into their soft copy versions. Ask around any student or employee, and they’ll tell you the very same thing – USBs are one of the most useful devices to ever graze a classroom and an office space. Of course, you’d have to avail high-quality ones, unless you want your recipient to have corrupted memory dilemmas all the time.

2. A Card Case

Out of all the things that your gift recipient may need, a card case may very well be one of it. This pocket-sized item wouldn’t only keep and organize all of their calling cards, it would also keep their ATM cards, valid IDs, and credit cards safe, especially during this modern era of financial scams. Some card cases even have a modified and enhanced casing, which keeps credit cards and ATM cash cards safe from RFID skimming devices. Of course, there are some who would prefer to avail a customized version for their loved ones, and there’s nothing wrong about that. By inquiring about the services offered by these card case shops, you may even get a wonderful deal, card case and customization packaged into one purchase.

3. Post-it

Another pocket-sized item that the intended recipient can use both at work or on-the-go. Let us tell you the significance of memo pads, first of all. While organizers and notebooks are the usual preferred items to write on during meetings, they are not really easy to carry around. Some hardcover versions of organizers are even heavy, and imagine carrying that around on a meeting-filled day. And let us not even get started on notebooks. Much like organizers, some of them are bulky enough to be called a paperweight. Another thing about notebooks is that they are meticulous to carry around, especially those which are not padded. To clarify, padded notebooks are those which ends are glued together, unlike those which are quilted. Most common notebooks are quilted and are a stubborn bunch, with the metal rounds in the end getting caught in fabric during crowded walks and elevator rides. Avoid the embarrassment and go for a memo pad. Easy to use, easy to carry around, and are practical to use, especially the ones which leaves are color coded (Post-it, in particular, have four main colors, pink, green, orange, and yellow). – avoid comparing item to notebooks and journals since these are also some of the items we offer.

4. A Ball Pen

What would a post-it be without a ball pen? You’d need something to write with, after all. A well-made ball pen would usually write on any form of page or surface, no problem. It’s the ink capacity that you will have to worry about. Here’s the thing about pens, the more you use them, the lesser their ink would be. In such case, a high quality pen would be a much better choice. Due to a) having a slower rate of ink blot, thus saving them in the long run, and b) and the well-made structure which would survive any accidental falls from your pockets. Some pens would even stop writing after a few falls, and they can be a real hassle, especially if you have a lot of pointers and reminders to write down after an important meeting.

Quick Christmas Gift Ideas for the Busy Entrepreneur

Water Bottle

For the busy entrepreneur, time is money, time is gold. Things are always fast-paced, everyone’s a connection, and all opportunities are open to challenges and success. Yes, determined employees are focused and driven, which is why trying to catch their attention, would be a difficult task. This difficulty is even more amplified if you consider the fact that they’re included in your Christmas list of people who have been nice to you all year and are deserving of a nice gift. It doesn’t seem problematic at first, but coming up with a gift for people who are always busy and on-the-go would greatly stretch your imagination to its fullest. Well, you’re in luck, as we’ve got just the right list for you, a plethora of Christmas gifts which would catch the attention of even the busiest person you’ve ever known.

1. A Wristwatch
This is one gift idea which we can all agree would be fit for any busy entrepreneur who loves to make the most out of their time. Being the most obvious choice in the list, it would be an injustice not to put it as the first one. Wristwatches are definitely useful, but not in the most specific reason that people give them credit for. Yes, they tell the time, the most obvious use of a watch, but others also use them as personal accessories. Most of the time, you’d see well-dressed corporate people walking around in lavish office halls, carrying their suitcases and swinging their arms as if they’re the CEO of the building, as if they’re the “man of the hour.” And, believe it or not, this actually works. Style is emanated from people who are confident about themselves and are confident about their fashion choices as well. You may find it hilarious and trivial, at best, but small things such as wristwatches can actually function as an elegant piece, a fashion statement.

2. Water Bottle
What do you give a person who is always on-the-go? Why, a handy water bottle, of course. Usually, corporate people are holed up in their comfortable offices, enjoying the soft, laid back office chair. Depending on their position and job description, employees would need to go out and travel towards a business partner to either provide progress reports or negotiate more deals. If your supposed gift recipient falls under the category of the latter, then, do them a favor and buy them this magnificent water bottle. The thing about travels is that they can really take a lot out of you. Energy, vigor, and sweat, you name it, employees on-the-go are exhausted by the end of the day due to constant travels, and every once in a while, they may need to rehydrate. This is where a nifty water bottle would come in handy. Of course, you also have to make sure that they get a proper amount of liquid each day. In that case, a Water Bottle would be a definite choice, featuring 1 Liter worth of liquid space.

3. A Powerbank
People on-the-go are mostly glued to their cellphones. If they’re not asking for directions towards the next destination for the day, they might be waiting for more text updates regarding the agenda of the upcoming meeting. And we all know what happens to smartphones with frequent use. Yup, the battery usually runs out! Good thing there are now such things as powerbanks. This has become a necessity nowadays. You may call it a device, an accessory to another device, etc. but one thing’s for sure, it’s definitely a life saver. If you ever consider gifting a powerbank, keep in mind that they come in different sizes, both literally and in terms of their mAh (milliampere hour). Bulky powerbanks are good if the recipient carries around a suitcase or bag to work every day. If they don’t, then you are better off giving them a smaller version and model. For the mAh (milliampere hour), basically it indicates the amount of energy stored in the powerbank itself. Know the type of cellphone that your gift recipient uses and how often they use their cellphones. These would important information, especially when you’re shopping for the right powerbank. Some of them come in 2,000 mAh, 3,000 mAh, etc. Feel free to ask the store personnel as well if you’re not sure about the type and model.

Corporate Giveaways that Your Employees May Use During their Holiday Trips

Must have items for rainy season

With the holiday season right around the corner, you might be thinking of the most appropriate gift ideas for your employees. You wouldn’t want your employees to think of work while they’re having quality time with their family. No, you would prefer for them to be well-rested, well-energized, and de-stressed during their short holiday vacation, which is why you should consider giving them something that may provide complete function and convenience during their trips. Here are just a few examples:
 
1. A Durable Customized Watch
Usually, vacationers would organize an itinerary in order for their trip to go smoothly. It’s just one way of making sure that no valuable time would be wasted during such a short vacation period. You can bet that your employees filing for a leave as early as now already has an itinerary up their sleeves. In such case, why not give them something that they can use along with their planners and holiday timetables. To ensure that they would never miss a flight, a durable watch would be the most appropriate company giveaway before or during the holidays. And take note, we mentioned the word “durable,” for your more adventurous employees who are looking to sky dive or rock climb during their vacation. Speaking of which.
 
2. A Custom Water Bottle
Help your employees stay rehydrated during their vacation. It doesn’t matter if they’ll be spending their Yuletide season in the warm climate of Boracay or the cold green lands of New Zealand, they’d be always on the move. And when they find themselves burning the calories during these travels, they might as well have a portable water bottle with them at all times. This is critical, especially for those who are looking to be involved in strenuous activities during the holidays, jet skiing, bob sledding, ice skating, and even the simplest act of swimming would require them to drink water every once in a while.
 
3.A Grab Emergency Kit
Accidents may occur anywhere at any time. Even the most cautious person may end up being involved in a sudden collision, thus rendering them in shock and distress. This may even happen during one’s vacation, which is why you should also consider giving your employees a Grab Emergency Kit. It is basically an emergency kit with a water bottle. Some may add a whistle, a Swiss Army knife, a compass, a few first aid ointments and band aids and some would even have a modern multi-purpose metal card the size of your typical driver’s license. Not only would your employees (who are about to embark on their Yuletide vacation) appreciate the gesture, they would also know that you care about their well-being, even when they’re thousands of miles away.

4 Must-have Items for the Rainy Season

Must have items for rainy season

The rainy season is one of the most anticipated seasons in the Philippines, as not only does it cool down the warm-tropical weather, it also marks the beginning of a colder climate within the country. But anticipated as it may be, many are still cautious of this weather’s negative effects, and a heavy rain gives no exemption to either daily commuters or indoor residents. Yes, the summer season may have produced some of the hottest days of the year, but at least everyone could still travel outdoors without the fear of getting drenched, neither would anyone even need to worry about flashfloods making their way into their homes. However, there is no need to worry, as there are countless items that people can use during emergency situations this rainy season. Not only would they guaranty their users a smooth, dry commute, they would also provide safety in the long run. Here are a just few examples:

1)  An Umbrella

Making the top of the list, an umbrella transcends its use way beyond the current season, as it can help deflect both the cool, drizzly rain and the scorching summer heat. Widely regarded as one of the most basic, yet, functional item in human history, an umbrella would at least last long enough to fend off a few years of unbearable heat and unexpected rains. Think about it, every community outreach encourages the use of an umbrella, even at the slightest weather change. Of course, it wouldn’t do much during heavy monsoons, but for light showers, it would at least keep you dry when walking towards your SUV terminals or school service.

2)  A Power Bank

Make sure that your gadgets are fully charged during emergencies. The force of nature doesn’t really wait around for everyone’s cellphone batteries to reach a 100%, and may decide to knock out the local power lines in the process. This is where a power bank may come in handy. A multi-purpose power bank is the most appropriate handy tool during brown outs, as it not only charges your cellphone, it may also function as a mini-flashlight, good for those evacuation sequences.

3)  A Whistle

Small as it may seem, a whistle could actually save your life while in a calamity. Remember that scene from that historical movie, where the protagonist was about to be left behind after a shipwreck? Not only did the sound of her whistle catch the attention of the rescue team, it also lead them to her exact location. Imagine getting stranded on the top of your roof after a flash flood. Your whistle would alert volunteer teams to your whereabouts, leading to a successful rescue. It could also work both ways, with rescue teams using their whistles to let any nearby survivors know that help is on the way.

4)  An Emergency Kit

Possibly the most useful item in any emergency situation, an emergency kit already contains a whistle, a first-aid kit, a can opener, various packs of medicine, a safety knife, a strong strand of rope, a flashlight, and some even have their own power banks, thus including two other important items in this list already. Of course, depending on the kit type and brand, the contents may vary, but nonetheless, each will always have the basic necessities needed during emergencies, and the rainy season should be no different.

4 Corporate and Elegant Gifts for a Job Well-Done

Corporate and Elegant Gifts

Your company’s top employees only deserve the most elegant gifts in existence. Not only would it show sincere appreciation for their hard work, but it also shows that they are valuable assets to the company, both exceptional and irreplaceable. In such case, it is up to the company to come up with a gift that would match the excellent performance of the said employees, a premium prize for a premium performance per se. There are countless options to choose from, but if ever an employer isn’t sure of what to give, here are a few corporate and elegant gift ideas for a job well-done:

1)  Reusable Tote

The name may be a mouthful, but this premium bag summarizes itself into one word – elegance. Your top employees would surely appreciate going to the grocery in style.  No dull fashion here, as this is the perfect tote to complete that “organic modern” style. It’s also particularly sturdy and well-made, a perfect fit for all of the freshly-bought produce and foodstuff.

2)  A Bernard Day Book with Pen

Your top employees would no longer need to save countless merit stickers just to get a mere organizer.  Give them a Bernard Day Book instead, something that they can use to jot down business ideas, which may be beneficial to the company. It also comes with a securely fastened slim pen, so they may write down whatever they please on-the-spot. Did we mention that it is also customizable? You can imprint the company name and logo on both the book and pen, hence, your top employees can show off the company brand in style.

3)  A Coffee Press Set

Start your employees’ day right. Nothing energizes a day better than a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Your top employees deserve something better than ready-mixes after all, hence, why an elegant coffee press set would be the perfect gift for them. Gone are days when they would mope over overtimes and deadlines, the more energized and well-appreciated they are, the more they would perform exceptionally.

4)  A Cheese Knives Set

This may be the most out-of-this-world choice for an elegant gift, but think about it, aren’t we Filipinos identified as the most hospitable in the world? Which is why giving your top employees a cheese knives set would help them serve houseguests in style. If the set wouldn’t be enough for a night of cheese and wine, you may also offer cheeseboards in addition (available upon request), to add completion to that elegant evening.

3 Giveaways to Motivate Creativity Among Your Employees

Giveaways to Motivate

The office can be a bland, boring place at times. Especially on slow months, employees can very well spend hours in the office, sitting in front of their monitor screens, hoping for time to go faster. Indeed, things can get monotonous, only picking up once office tasks are on the verge of deadlines, and even that doesn’t really add anything new to the daily routine of desk work and meetings. This situation can be averted, however. As an employer, you can motivate your employees to bring out their creative side. In such case, corporate giveaways that encourage creativity would greatly help in the long run. Just think about it, these new, creative ideas from your employees may be utilized to further develop the company as whole. Here are just a few prime examples of these giveaways:

1) An organizer

Some of the greatest ideas ever known to man were written down in paper before they were even acted out in real life. So imagine if each one of your employees were given a piece of paper, the possibilities of them thinking up the “next big thing” would be phenomenal at best. But why stop with a piece of paper, if you can give them a whole notebook? An organizer would not only allow them to manage their schedules, it would also provide them with space to jot down their everyday ideas. This in turn can be beneficial for the company, especially if they come up with an idea to ease up everyday tasks, or simply to deliver it all more efficiently.

2) A Sketchpad

If organizers are well-fitted for corporate folks, then sketchpads are a sure-match for artists. For advertising agencies and graphic design companies, artists are one of the main source of their income. Without artists and creatives, these company types would not thrive, hence it is important for them to give free rein to their employees in bringing out (or sketching up) their ideas. A sketchpad would be a blank canvas for them to come up with their next masterpiece.

3) A Colorful Memo Set

Commonly known in the office as “post-its,” a memo set serves mainly as written reminders for the employees. They usually come in a plain yellow color, but newer iterations are sold in a variety of bright (and even neon) colors, motivating creativity among employees who are using them from time to time. Do your employees a favor and give them a corporate gift that keeps on giving. A memo set would not look as impressive as a bag or an umbrella (those of which are common company giveaways), however, it would encourage your employees to think outside the box when “posting” their reminders. Remember, your goal is to liven up their workspace, and brightly-colored stick-ons are a surefire way of doing just that.
