Ideas for charitable corporate gifts this Christmas
We know in the Albert O’Connor & Co Accountants office that with the Christmas season just around the corner, it’s nice to acknowledge your suppliers/business partners and say thank you for another year of great service. But what corporate gifts can you send that avoid the usual cliches of festive hampers?
Here are a few alternative gift suggestions from the Albert O’Connor & Co Accountants team to get you thinking:
- Make a donation to your chosen local charity – you may well have a selected charity that you already raise funds for as a business. One way to help spread the love is to make a donation to your main charity, on behalf of your supplier/partner. This helps to demonstrate your values and raise awareness of the charity’s cause.
- Buy Christmas dinner for the homeless – many homeless charities will offer food and accommodation for homeless people over the Christmas period. Paying for 20 Christmas dinners on your supplier/partner’s behalf can make a huge difference for those people that find themselves with shelter, food or family at this time of year.
- Sponsor a sports person or team – sport can be an essential part of the local community, but it’s difficult for amateur sports people to find the funding they need. Sponsoring a local athlete or sports team helps them to train, compete and hit their sporting goals. And by adding your supplier’s/partner’s name and logo to their kit they also get some additional brand recognition as well.
