Why our customers send their clients Christmas hampers

Customer Q&A: Sending Christmas hampers as client gifts

Corporate gift giving is a big part of our business here at Hampergifts. Around the festive season our Christmas gift hampers find their way to our customers’ employees, clients and colleagues all over the UK. We asked Chris Brown of Quad Contracts why she chooses to send Christmas hampers to clients at this time of year, and here is what she had to say:

Q. Why do you think Christmas hampers make good gifts?

They make good gifts as they are well presented and have good, varied contents.  The recipients all respond well and appreciate the thought that has gone into sending them a hamper.

Q. How many Christmas hampers do you typically send out?

Last year we sent our clients around 65 Christmas hampers, but this figure can vary from year to year.

Q. Who’s your typical Christmas hamper recipient?

Our recipients tend to be regular clients & architects we work with throughout the year.

Q. Why do you choose to give clients Christmas hampers rather than another type of gift?

I think it’s nicer to send a hamper as it shows more thought has gone into the gift and the hampers are something they can share with family and friends.  Since we have been sending hampers, rather than a bottle of wine, we have had a much better response from clients thanking us for the wonderful gifts.

I have always been extremely happy & impressed with not only your gifts but the service from Hampergifts as well. They are always well presented and delivered when promised.

Q. Do you have any tips for corporate gift giving? Do you send the same hamper to all clients?

We choose different hampers, usually dependent on the amount of work or enquiries we have had throughout the year

When I’m choosing a hamper I go through all of them on the website, choose a couple between a certain price range and then look at the contents.  As ours are being delivered to various areas I tend to choose ones that don’t have perishable goods.

Q. Have you chosen your hampers from the range for this year? Which ones do you most like the look of?

I am in the process of looking at this year’s hampers but not yet made my choices, although Festive Chocs & Cookies, Luxury Christmas Wine Hamper, Deluxe Christmas Ruby, Christmas Celebration and the Double Wine Gift Box are in the running for my favourites of the selection this year.

That’s lovely, Chris, thank you very much for taking part in this interview for the Hampergifts blog. And happy Christmas too!

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. I started working with these points quickly after I made the choice to jump as well as begin a company broke as well as unemployed.

  3. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

  4. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as
    I provide credit and sources back to your webpage?
    My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of
    the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you.

    Many thanks!

  5. Many small companies prefer to hire SEO specialists as consultants rather
    than full time employees, unless they have a certain amount of websites that need to
    be continuously maintained and optimized. Thirdly, the search engines need legit companies to do site optimization. Forgetting to write for an audience is one of the biggest mistakes that
    bloggers make. Eventbrite is an online party-planning tool with KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) design so it is usually a top rated
    choice among event planners (organizers).

  6. ‘Are people really searching online for my product or
    services’. The usual SEO methods include keyword research, link building and such.
    But it is extremely important that anyone looking to hire an SEO professional be aware of the differences.
    You have to take price quotes from different SEO companies locally and internationally.

  7. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
    reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  8. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    We received a delightful hamper gift at Christmas from a client and thought that it was lovely. However one of the cookies looks as though someone has taken a bite from it. We’re not blaming you at all but thought that you might be interested to know what might have happened. We’ve kept that cookie still intact in its wrapper, and can sent a photo of it if you wish.
