What Promotional Products Are Most Effective for Christmas Gifts?
The holiday season is approaching, and businesses in Australia are gearing up to show appreciation to their customers and staff. One of the most effective ways to spread festive cheer and promote your brand is by giving away custom-branded Christmas gifts.
Before we go further into these fantastic Christmas gift ideas, it's essential to consider the timing. As the end of the year approaches, the holiday season can be hectic, with plenty to organise. The promotional products industry typically slows down during Christmas and early January. We recommended starting the order process as soon as possible to ensure you get your merchandise in time. You also have the option to get invoiced before the year ends and receive the final goods in the new year, which is a popular choice for those with leftover marketing budgets.
Why is merchandise a great end-of-year marketing idea?
- Merchandise can be scaled to meet big and small budgets, making it flexible for businesses of all sizes.
- You can utilise your leftover budget now and reap the benefits in the future.
- It's an expected time for gifting and allows you to wow your clients and stand out from your competitors.
- Many people make changes and new purchasing decisions in the New Year, so brand awareness at this time is critical, which promotional merchandise excels at.
- They help to maintain customer loyalty and are tangible items that can be held, used, and seen.
Most effective promotional Products include employee rewards, gifts for clients or employees, planning for future events, mail-out campaign products, new uniforms or gear for your team, daily business operations, awareness giveaways, and fundraisers.
As you plan for your Christmas gifts and merchandise, you will want to know some general cutoff dates to receive goods by the end of the year. Please note that these dates are to be used as a general guide, and you should speak with us for estimated production times for your specific situation. These dates may vary depending on the product selected and production schedules:
- Standard cutoff time for ordering: December 5th
- To get invoiced before the end of the year: December 22nd
- Limited express product delivered before Christmas: December 15th
