While we may still be in the middle of the summer season, we're in full holiday mode over here at M&G. With the holiday gifting season on the horizon, we wanted to take a trip down memory lane and share with you one of our all-time favorite custom corporate holiday gifts that we designed for Clark Construction. Our goal was to design a luxury gift box that would express Clark Construction's year-round core values during the holiday season. Based on our client's commitment to empowering the community that they live and work in, we intentionally sourced gift box contents exclusively from small women-owned, veteran-owned, and minority-owned businesses! (Most all from the D.C. area)! If you're like us and love impactful corporate holiday gifting, don't miss some of our most loved corporate holiday gift designs of 2021. Now, let's get to the (holiday) gifting!
For the presentation of these gift boxes, our goal was to strike the perfect balance between looking festive yet professional - but also high-end and usable. We opted for a rustic pine slide top gift box as the vessel, a handwoven throw blanket to sit on top of each gift box, and a luxe navy satin ribbon to tie it all together. We chose to keep Clark Construction's branding confined exclusively to the custom gift tag and notecard in order for the focus to be on the small businesses who created each item inside.
Inside each gift box, recipients would find an array of deluxe contents including a gourmet butterscotch blondie from a veteran-owned bakery, spiced nut mix from Spice Suite, small-batch bourbon maple pecan caramels from an artisan maker, a set of handmade wood coasters, and a pinecone accent to top it off.
As the final touch, we included a custom branded ivory note card with a blue script wishing each recipient a wonderful holiday season. But wait, here's where the theme comes full circle! We designed custom branded note cards intentionally calling out each small business and providing their contact information with the hopes that recipients could refer them to others and even place orders directly with them to show further support for these very special makers.
