Giving Corporate Gifts Just Makes Business Sense

Business associates and clients are often the recipients of gifts from partnering companies, and the trick is for your gift to stand out in the crowd. Many gifts can end up being very generic and impersonal. What if your client has food allergies? Pre-packaged meats, nuts, candies, or gift baskets would be scratched off your list. An impersonal gift can make associates feel as though they are just a number in your books and not a valued business partner.

When it comes to deciding on corporate gifts, companies have underlying implications to consider. Regardless of the occasion, a gift shows your admiration and respect for another person. When it comes to business, you need to show respect and show the value of their relationship with you. The gift that you give can help build a business relationship beyond initial projection. By choosing a gift that is personal and thoughtful, you will show your client how much you value their relationship and how invested you are in mutual success.

So, what should you buy for your corporate partners? Try personalized wine bottles for clientele you know to have more of an artistic sensibility and style. A gift of an engraved wine bottle is not overbearing or presumptuous of taste, and ages well over time.

If you know your business partners and clients more closely, engraved liquor bottles like the fine variety of Scotch available at Wine Delight are elegant yet reasonably priced. A smart choice for that old-fashioned, seasoned businessman or golfing partner, a bottle of engraved, aged Scotch is a timeless and sophisticated gift they can enjoy at a slower pace.

If you have clients from a particular region of the world, you might consider a liquor like sake, tequila, vodka, or rum to show respect for their culture and homeland.

What if your clients or partners are celebrating a new merger or other milestone for their business? Consider a bottle of champagne to help them toast to their new chapter of success in style and bold taste.

Whether you have a well-established business or are just starting a new one, there will be times when you need to send gifts to clients and business associates. Instead of choosing generic gifts that lack that personal touch, try an engraved bottle of Scotch whisky, red wine, or bourbon whiskey from Wine Delight today!

Engraved Bottles: A More Personal Wedding Gift

Selecting a gift from a wedding registry to give a recently wed couple is the norm, but it’s not exactly the most personal gift you could give. Why not consider an engraved wine bottle instead? If the couple in question likes a particular spirit more than wine, you could engrave a liquor bottle, such as an aged scotch or a bottle of bourbon whiskey. Long after the bottle is empty, your gift recipients will still be able to enjoy the bottle’s personalized message. They’ll always remember their special event and the thoughtful person who gifted them the bottle.

Wine Delight offers bottle engraving for all bottles available on its website. The engraving is put directly on the bottle, above the label. You can engrave up to three lines on the bottle with a 20-character limit per line.

Not sure what to say on the engraving? How about the couple’s names and their wedding date? You could engrave a few lines from the song of their first dance or a line from their favorite poem that was recited at the ceremony. Or you could put down a famous quote that you feel describes them perfectly. Another idea is to engrave a wish that you have for them - maybe years of happiness or lots of children - to make it even more personal. Other than the engraving itself, it’s important to select the perfect bottle for the newlyweds. First, determine whether they’re wine people or if they prefer fine liquor.

A bottle of champagne is always a great way to celebrate an event as special as the union between two people who love each other. Look through the available champagne bottles at Wine Delight and choose the perfect one to give as a gift. Champagne ages well, so the couple could save it for a special occasion such as their one year anniversary.

A robust bottle of red wine is a splendid way to wish the newlyweds a lifetime of romance. Choose a red wine that will age perfectly over the years and suggest the couple wait until their 10-year or 20-year anniversary to enjoy the special gift. Call us and we can help you select an elegant red wine that will be perfectly aged by the time it is finally opened.

When gifting a newly married couple a bottle of liquor, you should consider liquors that are already aged such as an aged scotch or ten-year-old vodka. The liquor won’t age any more in the bottle, but it also won’t go bad if it doesn’t get opened for several years. Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch whisky is a great example of a beautifully aged scotch that your gift recipients will absolutely love.

Give a beautiful engraved bottle of wine or liquor as a unique and thoughtful wedding gift the next time you attend a ceremony. The lucky couple will appreciate how personal the gift is and they'll always remember you fondly every time they look at the engraving.
