Why Humorous Corporate Gift-giving Works

Feb 9, 2008
You have been in business for a long time. When it is time to give a corporate gift, you have a stockpile and automatically send it out. How many calendars, day planners, wine gift baskets, have you sent without even thinking of the consequence?

Though corporate gift-giving is not the same as massive ppc or other major media advertising, it creates an impact and loyalty that no other type of advertising or marketing can give, that is, if it is done correctly.

Study after study has found that the them or nature of the gift itself is not just important but pertinent. If it is something that does not give the receiver a good feeling about you, the cost or how elaborate the gift is is a moot point. In fact it is a negative point.

Because of this, the growth of humor consultants has skyrocketed. Major corporations such as IBM, DuPont and many others pay them high wages to teach humor skills to employees for motivation and loyalty.

Humor is a staple, not a luxury, in one's personal life as well as the corporate world. It is a must.

A humorous corporate gift that that is a theme gift will pack a punch that goes a long way, creating loyalty, word of mouth, and even a community, generally of people who want to know you and where you shopped for it

I can't make you believe me in words. The investment is small, usually $15-$40 and it is worth it's weight in gold. You only need try it once. You will be hooked and so will the receiver, who will also be hooked on you.

An example might be you own or are partner of a law firm. For years you have given the same staid gifts to your clients. Why not try a professionally-drawn law-related cartoon on a coffee gift basket. Yes believe it or not there are legal-related themed gourmet coffee gift baskets. We know because we invented them and they are only around $40. We know of others, selling the same gourmet beans as non-cartoon gift baskets for $60-$80 with no personalization. We even personalize the basket for only $2 giving the law firm's name and web address. It includes an oversize coffee mug and four coasters, all with an award-winning law cartoon, five distinct blends and flavors of gourmet coffee beans worldwide and some other goodies.

Don't think coffee is a good idea? Why not a cartoon wall or desk clock. I prefer the desk clock, it is less expensive, and your name and URL appears in front of them every time they look at the clock. You can do this with coffee mugs, aprons, hoodies, framed tiles, Christmas ornaments, and so many other gift ideas, all at the best funny corporate gift shops. There are several on the Internet. I own one that sells 85,000 items.

Our manufacturer, 3drose, is one of the oldest and largest powersellers on Ebay, with a 99.4% positive feedback rating and over 11,000 transactions. This is almost unheard of in this day and time at any auction site.

3drose offers our items on their own site, our site, at Amazon.com, Shop.com and many of the other shopping channels. Or you can order from Londons Times Superstore or the manufacturer's site. The price is the same, great quality and customer service, and expedited worldwide at a very fast pace.

There are unique psychological benefits behind giving a gift of laughter that portrays your name and URL. The client or potential client cannot help but feel good every time he/she sees your company name and URL.
