Why is Employee Corporate Gifting so Important and why you should get started?

Employee Gifting is an important strategy for any company. Corporate gifting can help motivate and inspire your team and let them know you appreciate them. Your employees are your most valuable asset, so going the extra mile with a thoughtful and heartfelt corporate gift can go a long way. Send unique gifts to new employees to make them feel more welcome and it can help relax the first day on the job nerves! 

According to gifting trends:

  1. Most popular business gift-giving occasions are: 51% holiday, 34% customer appreciation, 27% employee recruiting, appreciation, or milestone.
  2. Research has shown that "Twice as many employees found gift boxes or baskets memorable compared to a charitable donation or a gift card".
  3. And adding personalization was the leading component of success in a gifting strategy.

Gift baskets and gift boxes have become increasingly popular and are a great way to recognize your employees.

Employee recognition is an important part of any corporate structure and culture. Baskits has many options for providing impactful gifts to employees that reflect their daily efforts. Baskits recently took on a massive gifting initiative for UHN that sent thoughtful packages to their healthcare workers in honor of all that they do.


"We worked with the UNH team to create and send out 17,000 custom thank you boxes for their healthcare workers as a small token of thanks for the dedication and hardwork they provide every day. Our send out included a beautifully printed box with "thank you" written in different languages and the gift included a delicious box of cookies and branded fanny pack. Baskits was able to deliver all 17,000 units seamlessly and truly enjoyed being apart of such a wonderful initiative."
