Back in July, we advised you to begin your holiday promotional products order process, Is it Time to Order Fall and Winter SWAG?  That was nearly three months ago. If you haven’t made your seasonal promotional product orders, if you haven’t decided on holiday gifts and cards, it’s time. It’s almost past time. Time is running out. So, if you haven’t completed this task put it at the top of your to-do list.

Holiday Cards

Holidays cards shouldn’t be a generic afterthought. A client should be able to look at a card and know who sent the card. If your Holiday greeting would fit any business, then it doesn’t fit your business.

How do you create a card that fits your business, industry, and company culture? You do that by working with an advertising specialist and a design team. You don’t wait until three weeks before the holiday and hope to accomplish this. Like I said, time is running out.

“I remember reading an autobiography of a first lady who was surprised when the White House Staff began asking her for Holiday decisions in May. They asked her to decide on menus, decorations, color palates for invitations, and centerpiece ideas. Being her first year in the White House, she thought the staff was being overzealous—until Christmas arrived and she realized the planning started when it needed to start.” –  Happy September and Merry Christmas Card.

Holiday Gifts

“I know. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, right? It’s too early to think about Christmas gifts. But unless you’re skipping Christmas it’s time to choose what your organization is going to give and who you’re giving it to. If we take the emotion out of early holiday advertising and look at organizing holiday specialty products as a business operation, it’s easy to see the practicality of planning ahead. If you were a stationery retailer, you wouldn’t wait until school began to order supplies for back to school. If you sold road salt, you wouldn’t wait for the first snow before you called your supplier. If you were planning a company picnic, you wouldn’t go to your local deli the morning of the event to find food and supplies. Would you?” Last Call for Holiday Promotional Gifts.
