ATTENTION: There are only 90 days until Christmas! And 75 days until Hanukkah begins! And even less than that until your company party! (If you’re having one) And that doesn’t count shopping days, which are even fewer. Do you know what that means?
Yes, it means you should think about getting your orders for your custom, branded holiday gifts in ASAP if you want them to be in your hands by December 1st.
Many of us are aware supply chains this year are tight because of COVID-19, and that’s in play for the holiday season. A lot of factories needed time off for social distancing or health and safety reasons, and others are working to meet stepped-up demand for their products. Online shopping has skyrocketed, too, putting more stress than ever on delivery companies and the US Postal Service.
The Dunstan Group, supplier of unique branded apparel and products, is ready for the challenge of supplying your company gifts — but the sooner, the better for those orders!
“We’re trying to get clients to think about planning ahead,” says The Dunstan Group Founder and President Scott Dunstan. “Big companies are putting in orders already, so we need to get on board.”
Get those orders in pronto if you want to send this year’s hottest gift: the Bodega Box, a new and very popular choice for a BrandBuilders Box. The BrandBuilders Box has taken off as a top choice for gifting this year because so many people are working from home. Unique branded items can be assembled and wrapped in a custom box and delivered directly to recipients by mail or delivery service – a sweet, personal touch. The custom box uses your logo and branding to put your company name in front of recipients at a special time of an unusual year.
Bodega Boxes include small, gourmet, and handcrafted items, like nuts, jams, and other tasty treats, along with small, branded gifts that go with a theme. The custom box and personalized notes sent directly to a client’s door finishes with the right touch of, “We’re thinking about you!” But good things take time, says Dunstan.
“Getting an early order makes it easy to customize your BrandBuilders Box, and get it where it needs to go before the holidays,” he reminds us. “It takes time to customize just the right order for you, and make sure it has time to ship.”
Other popular items for holiday corporate gifting include corporate apparel like shirts, vests, or jackets; and branded coffee vessels like Yeti or Corkcicle. This year, branded products for the home are especially useful — think blankets and throws, knives and cutting boards, and even Bluetooth speakers for those Zoom meetings. For employees and clients venturing out to the office, apparel sets like branded scarves with matching hats and gloves are a nice touch.
We’ve all gotten used to those little delays this year, but one thing — the holidays — won’t wait. So make sure you get your orders in early — no one wants to be stuck on the naughty list come December!
