Heart Seedsticks Giveaway for Valentine's Day

Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Giveaway Ideas

Looking for eco-friendly ways to show love to your customers this Valentine’s Day? The true purpose of Valentine’s Day is to appreciate loved ones, but don’t forget to show love for the Earth too! Choose Valentine’s Giveaways that won’t harm or pollute the planet but also show your customers and clients how much you care about them. 

History of Valentine’s Day

But first, to fully appreciate Valentine’s Day, let’s delve into its origins. The mid-February celebrations can actually be traced all of way back to the Roman festival of Lupercalia, which celebrated fertility, paired men off with women based on a lottery system. It wouldn’t be until the end of the 5th century when Christianity was in full-swing that Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day. Naturally, Valentine was a popular name in the olden days, so nobody is quite sure just which acclaimed Valentine the day is named after.

One version of the legend claims that a priest named Valentine signed a letter “from your Valentine” to a woman he had befriended and by some accounts, healed of her blindness.  Thus came the birth of Valentine’s cards! The other commonly accepted origin story is that a priest named Valentine married couples in secret against the orders of the emperor. The marriages were done to spare husbands from having to go off to war leaving their loved ones. Either theory is quite lovely, and supports why St. Valentine’s Day is associated with love.  

Custom Valentine’s Gifts & Giveaways

 So, now that we’ve had a bit of history lesson, let’s fast forward to the present day. As you know, the environment isn’t in a great place right now. Between climate change and the ever-growing plastic waste affecting our land and ocean environments, it’s important for each of us to do everything in our power to be more eco-friendly, and reduce the use of single-use plastics.

The most popular Valentine’s Day product is the greetings card. Whilst most Valentine’s Day cards are paper rather than plastic, it still takes lots of energy and resources to create virgin paper or even to recycle paper.  And if a paper card is decorated with glitter or metallics it’s less likely to be recyclable after use. 

Check out our eco-friendly sustainable greeting cards (or alternatives) that are kinder to the Earth. All of our Valentine’s Giveaways can be custom-printed with any business branding and logo.  Use them as giveaways to loyal customers, brand ambassadors, influencers or as a thank you to employees.  Click on the links near the products to request a sample or a quote.

5 Reasons to Incorporate Corporate Gifts In Your Business

 

No matter what sort of business you run, the relationship you hold with your customers is one of the most vital factors contributing to the success of your company. Corporate gifts not only show your customers just how much you value your relationship with them, but they impact the way that your brand is perceived by your clientele and stakeholders. This perception of your brand has a direct impact on your company’s growth. So, presenting customers with gifts, specifically around the holiday season, allows you the opportunity to shape the perception of your brand.

Keep reading to learn the 5 different reasons that corporate gift-giving is so vital.  

Corporate Gifts Establish a Relationship with Your Clients and Colleagues 

Gift-giving is considered to be one of the five love languages, so it’s no surprise that giving gifts to clients is vital in establishing business relationships. Specifically, our eco-friendly gifts help to shape your customer’s perception of the company as being a responsible, sustainable one.  

As Forbes.com contributor Ian Altman writes “It’s always a good idea to show clients your gratitude.” In fact, a recent report from the Business Satisfaction survey, as reported by Forbes, revealed that the market for non-cash business gifts totals at close to an estimated £95 billion. 

Corporate Gifts Demonstrate Appreciation 

Believe it or not, gifts can significantly hurt, or help, the growth of your business. In the Business Satisfaction survey previously referred to, 57% of respondents said that “gifts can impact their opinion of a business partner both positively and negatively.” This data shows that it’s vital to know how much to spend, as well as what sort of gift to give, to ensure that your business gift recipient feels appreciated in the right way.  

Corporate Gifts Display A Commitment to Your Partnership 

Like all partnerships, business partnerships are dynamic and ever-changing. Just like gifts demonstrate an appreciation for your business partner or client, they also show that you are committed to the continued partnership that you hold. Giving a corporate gift, especially around the holidays, shows that you are ready to be in it together through thick and thin, quarter after quarter. The Business Satisfaction survey also noted that more than 80% of C-suite executives believe that business gifts generate positive ROI.

Additionally, speaking to the intangible benefits of gifts, a survey respondent stated, “Gifts humanize business.” Gifts especially help to “humanize” businesses when they are thoughtful, and have the power to serve an altruistic purpose.  

 Corporate Gifts Help Reinforce Your Brand 

When they are outfitted with the logos and/or branding of your company, corporate gifts can help to reinforce your brand. Nearly all of Buddy Burst’s products are designed to be customised with the specific branding of your company. Even better, Buddy Burst products can be infused with a variety of different herb, vegetable and flower seed mixes that can play up your brand. For example, a Mexican restaurant might opt for chili seeds, while a spa might go for lavender seeds. For all holiday seeded gifts, we even offer rosemary and pine tree seeds.  

Corporate Gifts Show Your Brand’s Personality/Values 

While the type of seed you decide to include in your gift can impact the brand personality you’re putting forward, the gift itself can say even more about your brand.  Alternatively, if you want to come across as especially functional/professional, our classic Seedsticks™ might be more up your alley. Whatever the corporate gift, be sure it rings true to the message you wish to send about your company. No matter what you select, you can guarantee that your gift will demonstrate your company’s commitment to the environment.
