Quality: As we always say at Merchery, when it comes to gift-giving, quality matters!

So, make sure you're investing in gifts that are built to last and will leave a lasting impression on your clients, employees, and business partners.

Utility: gifts for clients that are useful in everyday life are likely to be more appreciated than those that are purely decorative.

Brand relevance: Consider gifts that reflect your company's brand identity and values. For example, if your company is known for its commitment to sustainability, consider gifts made from eco-friendly materials or that support environmental causes.

_Timing: _Timing is also important when it comes to gift-giving. Consider the occasion or season and select gifts that are appropriate and timely.
