How gifting can help with our 'new normal'
The world has totally changed over the last three months. In-person events have been cancelled, the shopping world has changed, hospitality has stalled and employees are isolated from their colleagues and customers.
The world of gifting has changed too and just because your in-person events and meetings aren’t happening, that doesn’t mean you should be deterred from client and employee gifting.
In fact, now is the opportunity to take your business to the next level, with virtual events, conferences and townhalls becoming the new normal to connect people. And that means a new gifting experience, that’s completely personal and unique.
Although you may have had frequent catch ups online, that doesn’t beat in-person contact, does it? Your business may not be quite ready to fully get back face-to-face yet, but how are you ensuring your employees and clients are all feeling the togetherness you’d normally experience in-person?
Employee wellbeing is such an important aspect of the workplace, and there’s nothing better than receiving a little something through the post, full of luxury gifts to lift up the mood when things have become a little hard.
Not only that, virtual events can make clients and colleagues feel involved too. Virtual events are the new way of getting large groups together. A themed hamper can make everyone feel included, whether you’re running townhalls, conferences or award ceremonies.
Khyva offers personalised corporate hampers that can brighten anyone’s day. We’re a gifting service with your recipient and brand in mind, helping everyone feel together. Whether you want to say thank you to loyal clients, help your employees feel more motivated, or part of the team when they’re remote working, or you just want to send positivity, a hamper is a gesture no one will forget!
Why Choose Khyva for your gifting experience?
Khyva has been designing hampers to gift high-profile corporate clients including Google, Facebook, Adobe, The Daily Mail, Spotify, Ecolab and Marriott Hotels for more than two years.
Businesses love the simplicity and the limitless personalisation of our gift boxes. But don’t just take our word for it - check out our reviews on Trustpilot, where we’re rated Excellent.
If you’re looking for a completely unique gift, one call to us where we’ll discuss the brief and your budget. Our Gifting Managers will then work closely with you to curate and beautifully package a selection of gifts suited to the recipient or brand to ensure the presentation perfectly sits inline with your business branding. We are also able to offer complimentary printing of your logo on a gift card with a message of your choice for a completely personalised service.
We source products from our luxury suppliers to fit your brand ethos and make it a priority to support small businesses too, with the majority of our gifts coming from independent boutiques as well as high end brands.
For eco-conscious firms, sustainability is a major consideration and we take care to source eco-friendly and plastic-free products where possible.
They can be delivered directly to the recipient, so you can focus on growing your business and hosting a memorable event, rather than the stressful and time consuming gifting details.
Wella TrendVision Awards
Like so many events, Wella’s TrendVision Awards were virtual this year and this meant the company had to think a little harder about its gift boxes for the winners. Working closely with our Khyva’s Gifting Managers, we came up with some beautifully hot pressed foil branded boxes and hand-picked a selection of products for a truly luxurious prize.
The boxes also included trophies and boomf cards from third parties we work closely with to ensure everything was delivered on time and to budget. The timing of deliveries was key, to ensure each of the winners received their box at the same time. As a virtual awards ceremony, synching up the deliveries was a key requirement.
Wella's event coordinator said, "I have really enjoyed working alongside the Khyva team to put together celebration boxes for the Wella TrendVision Award Regional Winners.
"Khyva’s attention to detail meant the boxes were perfect first time and everything was perfectly co-ordinated, including on-time deliveries to the recipients, which was a major KPI in our virtual awards. Organising a virtual awards ceremony was a huge challenge for us, but we are now convinced they worked, thanks to the efficiency of Khyva.
"The overall service we have received has been fantastic, I would definitely recommend Khyva to anyone looking to organise corporate gifting."
Case Study - Timpi
Timpi is a luxury personal concierge service that wanted to welcome clients and celebrate their anniversaries with Timpi.
We began our journey with Timpi with an initial consultation, where we discussed the purpose of the boxes and the kind of experience they wanted to offer to clients. We discussed every detail with them, including options of both ribbon and box sleeves so each client receives a different box and contents, plus complete branding options including pens, debossed soft touch notebooks and other exclusive gifts, unique to the company and their clients.
We have also arranged storage of the branded items, so they can be sent out to clients on demand. This also means Timpi benefits from large order discounts.
They can now be used to boost client loyalty or send to partners on demand, with contents to match the occasion.
Stephanie Sheargold, Timpi's managing director said: "We really wanted to take our branding to the next level and were struggling to find a company that could offer a premium service. We wanted to be able to tailor our gifting, as well as having our own branding and Khyva allows us to do just that.
"Our welcome boxes and anniversary gifts are incredible, a premium quality that really sets us apart from our competitors. The Khyva team has been fabulous and gone above and beyond. They have all really taken the time to understand our brand and goal, and the results just say it all.
"We now have high quality branded products and still able to give our clients the extra personal touch. I couldn’t recommend Khyva enough and will definitely be working with them for the foreseeable future."
