In order to make sure custom-printed holiday gifts arrive in plenty of time, be sure to…
- Start planning early. The best time to start planning your holiday gift order is in the summer. This will give you plenty of time to choose the perfect gifts, get quotes from suppliers, and place your order.
- Be clear about your budget. How much are you willing to spend on each gift? This will help you narrow down your options and make sure you don't overspend.
- Consider the recipient. What would your employees, customers, or partners appreciate? Think about their interests, hobbies, and needs when choosing gifts.
- Do your research. Get quotes from multiple suppliers and compare prices. Read reviews to make sure you're choosing a reputable company.
- Order early. The earlier you order, the more likely you are to get your first choice of gifts and avoid shipping delays.
- Be flexible. Be prepared to make changes to your order if necessary. Things like supply chain issues or shipping delays can happen, so it's important to be flexible.
- Communicate with your supplier. Keep in touch with your supplier throughout the ordering process. This will help to avoid any delays or misunderstandings.
By following these tips, you can order customized holiday gifts early and avoid disappointment. Your employees, customers, and partners will appreciate the thoughtfulness and effort you put into choosing the perfect gifts.
You should also keep in mind that…
- Certain gifts are in high demand, such as backpacks, power banks, headphones, food/drinking gifts, and blankets. You especially need to make sure you order these early.
- You’ll pay a premium for rush shipping. If you need your gifts to arrive by a certain date, you can pay a bit more to have them rush delivered. (And Geek Tech Branding has quick-ship holiday gifts!)
- A backup plan is always smart. If your first choice of gifts is not available, have a backup idea in place, such as a gift card or a different type of gift.
