Top 10 Promotional Gift Ideas To Consider For 2022

Top 10 Promotional Gift Ideas To Consider For 2022

Dec 15, 2021

Promotional gifts are a vital aspect of a company’s marketing strategy. They tap into an inherent human trait called reciprocity. This is the desire to give something back when an item is received. This need to respond by giving something back is hard-wired into the human brain. For example, remember the time you purchased a gift for someone because they did the same for you. How about when you volunteered for a cause because they handed you a gift.

In business, the strategy of handing out promotional gifts can backfire if it’s not executed correctly. Hand out a poorly thought out item and the company will risk looking inauthentic. When the recipient feels the gift-giving gesture was genuine in its ability to serve or thank, then their need to act similarly is stronger. By understanding how the principle of reciprocity operates, brands can build lasting relationships.

The best way to choose valuable promotional gifts is by being intentional in your choice. Your brand’s gift should be useful, in trend, and ideally have more than one use. Keep in mind, consumers are flooded by marketing gimmicks throughout the day. Your brand has to select promotional products that will shine amidst the noise.
