From all of us here at Anthem Branding, we are e-x-c-i-t-e-d — OK, maybe even jumping with joy — to bring you, for the second consecutive year, our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide! Get your copy today because when it comes to gifting, it really is the thought that counts.
Thinking about our own experiences of being on the receiving end of a thoughtless gift, we quickly realized that thoughtless gifting doesn't have to be the default.
No matter if you’re an executive receiving the annual company gift, the staff employee who gets a pat on the back just once a year, or that top-notch client who comes to you for repeat business all year round — getting something found in the back of the supply closet, so to speak, is just not going to cut it anymore.
Comprised of six themed collections, this year’s guide features the latest and greatest in backpacks, hoodies, hats, beanies, tumblers, and more.
This guide is for you if you:
- Are looking for a way to cut through the holiday gifting noise;
- Want to show appreciation to those who make the business go round, from your customers to executives and employees;
- Want to be known as a brand and business that creates a people-first culture; and/or,
- Want your budget dollars to go further with quality versus quantity.
