7 unique corporate ideas for clients

When we think about corporate gift ideas for clients, most of us visualise corporate diaries, branded pens, watches, calendars, planners, USB sticks and the like. However, when it comes to family members, we consider their likes and interests before selecting an appropriate gift. The same holds good for your business clients as well. Thus it is always better to give them what they prefer.

Corporate Gift Ideas for Clients

Having known your clients for long, Im sure you will be aware of their likes and dislikes. Keeping that in mind, here are a few corporate gift ideas for clients.

Tea and Coffee Hamper

Clients, who love hot beverages, can be gifted with a Tea and Coffee Gift Hamper. It contains an assortment of different flavors of coffee and tea meticulously arranged into a gift hamper. Thus, it acts as a visual treat and looks desirable at the outset.

Beermats or Drink Coasters

A beermat is an object on which you can rest glasses containing drinks. This is used to avoid the glass from being in direct contact with the table surface, thereby preventing any possible damage or scratches. They can thus be gifted to clients who socialize a lot. These beermats can be personalized, before giving them away.

Marketing and Motivational Books

If your client is an avid reader, then this can be an ideal gift.  And who doesn’t need motivation? You can find books on motivation, marketing and various other subjects on many shopping websites.

A Miniature Waterfall

This is again very popular decorative item; it provides a soothing atmosphere and therefore helps to calm one’s mind. It is easy to install and can be used either at home or in the office.

Bonsai Trees

This is a gift which can enliven the home or workplace and therefore serves as an ideal giveaway.

Chocolate Hamper

Everybody loves chocolates. If your clients also have a sweet tooth, then why not allow them to indulge in some chocolates and remember you in the holidays?

Dry Fruit Hamper

Although a fruit basket makes a good gift, we personally love dry fruits and suggest that you gift the same. This hamper contains an assortment of dry fruits; they obviously have a longer storage life.

Therefore, we find that there are many more corporate gift ideas for clients ; the main idea is to be considerate enough to understand their likes and dislikes and choose the best ‘Thank You Gift’ to make their spirits come alive!

Seven top trends for office fitouts in 2015

Say goodbye to the old-style cubicles and sterile offices of yesteryear. When it comes to office interiors, a new era of innovation, colour and collaboration has moved into the office, and it looks like it’s here to stay.

Whether your business has one or multiple sites, it’s important to create a working environment that will enable your employees to work efficiently and effectively.

Here are seven office interiors or top trends for office fitouts for 2015:

Open up

The time of the isolated worker is long gone. Instead of traditional closed office layouts, offices are introducing lower walls between desks, casual meeting areas, and ABW (Activity Based Working).

Flexible spaces

Research shows workers are more productive when given the flexibility to choose how, where and when they work. So it’s no surprise that more offices are now incorporating workspaces specially designed to stimulate creativity, collaboration and teamwork. Office interiors now include spaces that are both efficient and fluid in design; interchangeable spaces and modular elements combine with acoustic panels to prevent noise, and the clever use of glass lets in light but allows privacy.

Outside in

It’s time to bring the outdoors in. We’re not talking about a few potted plants – this is about living wall and plant installations and earthy designs throughout the office. After all, research shows that plants have a positive physical and psychological effect on employees. They can also absorb sound and help clean the air. And in keeping with the “green” theme, many office interiors are also now accommodating bike racks, change room facilities and lots of locker storage, rather than car spaces.

Get social

Social spaces, relaxation areas and games rooms will no longer be confined to creative agencies. Even the most corporate offices are embracing more fun and casual designs inside and outside – also known as the Google Effect. This includes office interiors such as big communal eating areas, breakout spaces for lunch, ping-pong tables, rooftop gardens complete with hammocks, and more.

Be bold

Vibrant colours, bold patterns and graphic prints will make a statement in modern office fitouts. Not only on the walls, but on furniture and structural elements too – staircases, beams, columns, floors and lights will start featuring eye-catching designs on a super scale. Think motivational quotes, neon signage, and big branding throughout the environment as an office fitout trend.

Comfort matters

New research by the Sax Institute in partnership with Cancer Council NSW reveals that replacing one hour of sitting with standing can increase a worker’s lifespan by at least 5%. So in addition to ergonomic chairs, where almost every part is adjustable, expect to see an influx of height-adjustable desks and workstations. Sit-to-stand workstations allow workers sit or stand at their desk, reducing back strain and promoting good health. Sit-to-stand workstations can also act as a “touchdown” station for workers who are in-between meetings, allowing them to quickly check emails without even sitting down.

Home away from home

We spend most of our working life at the office, so it already feels like a second home. Now, office interiors are taking this a step further by invoking a uniquely residential feel. For example, an open plan office might include home-like breakout rooms complete with beanbag chairs, sofas and soundproofing, creating a private retreat from the bustle of the office.
