As the holiday season and year-end approaches, many businesses are busy preparing gifts for employees, clients, and business partners, showing appreciation and cultivating professional relationships. Aside from holiday gifts, corporate gift-giving occasions include commemorating the beginning of a new business partnership, company anniversaries, employee incentives, business milestones, and many more. Having to come up with a list of recipients, decide what to give them, buy the gifts, wrap them, and send them out consumes considerable time and employee resources, which may be in short supply.
Since 1994, MonthlyClubs.com has been making gift-giving easier for businesses all across the US, providing a wide variety of personalized and memorable gifts that will be appreciated long after the holidays are over. It offers gift subscriptions in six popular categories – Craft Beers, International Wines, Artisan Cheeses, Hand-Crafted Chocolates, Hand-Rolled Cigars, and Freshly Cut Floral Arrangements. Each shipment also comes with detailed tasting or product notes and maker profiles.
All of its gifts are high-quality and are made in small batches, carefully curated by MonthlyClubs’ panel of product experts. This allows recipients to try new products that they wouldn’t have discovered on their own, creating excellent gifting value through the novelty and variety of experiences.
MonthlyClubs’ Design Your Own Club (DYOC) program, allows customers to combine multiple clubs into a single membership and create a custom shipment schedule. For example, they can send cheese for Christmas, wine for the company anniversary, and beer for their birthday. There are also options for multiple shipments in a single month, as well as to ship only on specific months.
According to MonthlyClubs president and founder Kris Calef, who used to work at a global business technology giant, corporate gift-giving can hugely benefit businesses. It is perfect for rewarding and incentivizing high-performing employees, as well as a way to create a positive impression with important customers and vendors. Being able to schedule gifts in advance produces repetitive acknowledgment, which is useful in remaining on top of the recipients’ minds.
Calef adds that MonthlyClubs’ offering can also function as a unique lead-generation tactic for realtors, financial planners, and similar professions. With the gift-giver subscribing to the same club as the recipient, it gives them a reason to stay connected and build relationships by comparing tasting notes monthly or quarterly.
MonthlyClubs corporate customers are assigned a dedicated sales representative to assist them with their concerns and help them craft custom gift-giving programs that fit their needs. Corporate customers can also receive significant volume discounts, depending on the amount they order.
“Our Design Your Own Club program has proven to be a popular corporate gift-giving option, due to its unparalleled flexibility and variety,” Calef says. “We offer hand-crafted, lightly distributed farmhouse cheeses, estate-bottled wines, microbrewery beers, small-batch chocolates from boutique chocolatiers, custom-arranged flowers, and rare cigars. These unique gifts make a long-lasting positive impression on recipients, generating goodwill for your business. Let us be your corporate gifting concierge and we’ll help provide an experience that is impactful, affordable, and easy for everybody.”
