How To Create The Perfect Custom Gift Bag

Gift bags are more than lollipops and candy rings – in the corporate world, they’re a great way to network and market. Award employees of the year/month, thank fundraiser attendees, or welcome a new orientation group with a custom gift bag.

The key to creating a great gift bag is customizing each item within the bag. Anyone can throw a pen, pencil, t-shirt, and key chain together in a bag. By customizing everything with your company name, website, and even your phone number, you market your company and reinforce that you are a professional, organized, and trustworthy business.custom-gift-bag-items

To create the perfect custom gift bag, start by choosing which bag you’ll use. A simple drawstring bag is standard. You can choose one color or multicolor bags based on which option matches your company logo and brand best. Options like drawstring bags with a pocket add an extra touch. A simple drawstring bag works best for fundraisers and company events. If you’re planning an important conference or annual event, you may want to choose a high quality bag that has more every day value, like a laptop bag or duffel bag. All are easily customizable through screen printing or embroidery. Customize your bag with a fun graphic pertaining to your event, or keep it simple with your company name and logo.

Once you’ve decided on what bag to use and the design you’d like, choose what you want to go in the bag. If you’re hosting an awards ceremony, have trophies custom engraved with the receiver’s name and honorable title. For fundraisers, custom key chains, glasses, mugs, pens, and even dog tags are great items to include.

As you plan out your gift bags, think about what kind of apparel you want to include. Is this a summer event? Have t-shirts … Continue reading
