Branded office essentials
For employees who spend most of their time in the office,we believe giving them the best quality office essentials would be a great idea. For example, you can choose among a lot of them,engraved metal pens, professional notebooks, diaries,folders, executive pens and business card holders. Remember you can easily compile all these items and gift them as a gift basket.
You can make your brand a part of their daily lives with kitchenware. From everyday ceramic coffee mugs to kitchen utensils like salt and pepper shakers,wine and bottle openers,knife and carving sets to single or double wine carriers. These can make a great impact when it comes to brand recall especially among women. The idea would actually be very useful for a brand that has women as its primary target audience.
