Few things show appreciation with more simple elegance than the perfect gift—except a carefully curated box packed with not just one, but several perfect gifts.
After all, opening up a gift box conjures in many the positive feelings of childhood birthday parties or holiday mornings.
Here’s how one SwagUp customer described her team’s overwhelmingly warm reactions to opening their custom gift boxes:
“I wish I could show you our Slack channel but like I remember the day it went out, literally the Slack channels flooded, our company-wide slack channels flooded with thank yous, and people were posting pictures of their kids just saying, it made my day and made my week.”
What can gift boxes accomplish for your corporate gifting program?
They might help you make virtual events more special for your employees, celebrate a client anniversary, or show your small business customers that you know them well enough to find multiple holiday gifts they’ll love.
