Corporate Gifting in NZ
It's never too soon to start thinking about Christmas gifts for your staff, customers and clients.
At the end of a tough year, it's more important than ever to celebrate successes and reward a job well done. Whether it's your colleagues, staff, business partners or important customers and clients, everyone deserves and appreciates a little recognition.
From a tray of donuts for the office morning tea shout, to a luxury customised client gift box in your corporate colours, Kiwi company Celebration Box can create the perfect gift for any occasion – and courier it direct to the door anywhere in the country.
With the festive season fast approaching and Covid casting serious doubt on the prospect of Christmas parties, Celebration Box CEO Wayne Kennerley says many businesses are planning to thank their staff and clients with gift boxes instead. "I don't think many corporates are going to be organising a big party this year, so gifting is going to be even more important."
"We work together to provide personalised gifts tailored for your vision," he says. "You give us a brief, including quantity, budget and any customisation, and we'll work our magic. We'll suggest box contents and design options to meet your budget, then deliver to your clients, customers or employees New Zealand wide."
Each gift comes with a personalised note – your chance to say thanks, congratulations or another message.
Kennerley says corporate customers coming to Celebration Box for their custom gifts can also access the offerings of its three partner companies, gourmet grocery hamper supplier Paddock to Pantry, florist The Wild Rose and personalised cookie company Hello & Cookie.
"What makes us special is that we can tie it all together – we can not only give you a beautiful gift basket with a bottle of bubbly but we can have flowers with it as well. And then we can personalise it by including cookies featuring a text message or your brand logo. It's the ultimate gifting solution."
He says delivered gift boxes are a great way to recognise and reward your staff at a time when many might be working remotely, and there are limits on gatherings like after-work drinks. During lockdown, Celebration Box received a massive influx of queries from corporates wanting to send boxes out to home-based staff to thank them for their work under challenging situations.
"It doesn't matter who you want to treat, whether they're vegan and gluten-free, 18-year-old kids, or a 65-year-old guy who's about to retire, we've got something that will delight them."
Companies like Culture Kings, Xero, McDonalds, Lockwood Homes, Air NZ, Michael Hill, Zuru, law firms, real estate agents, local plumbers and electricians have all been recent customers of Celebration Box or its partners to solve gifting needs for business, says Kennerley.
As one of New Zealand's biggest gift box companies, Celebration Box has the buying power and supplier relationships to offer affordable prices. "We've got gifts from $24.95 so gifting doesn't have to be expensive."
He says Celebration Box offers some of the lowest delivery charges in the industry, including same-day delivery around Auckland and overnight delivery to the rest of the country.
"Gifting whether it's a premium gift box or simple box full of treats are a fantastic way for people to keep in contact with each other and for corporates to give recognition where it's due. Everybody loves something sweet and something nice. It's hard not to be happy when a box of goodies lands on your doorstep!"
