A gift should not be a cold email! Still, that’s what it ends up becoming. It becomes just another box of sweets, dry fruits, tiffin or bed sheet. Each year employees or clients get a lot of things that end up lying unopened or regifted. This happens when the right gifts are not given or perhaps not given in the right way. This can be avoided with proper planning.

Diwali gifting can be tricky. There are no definite dos and don'ts, but here are a few things that can make gifting easier and effective.
It won’t matter if your gift options are the best ones. If the quality of the products is not good or if the gift is not delivered to the correct person, the whole exercise goes for a toss! Hence, it is crucial that you onboard a gifting partner that is credible and assures you the best service.
Plan your budget and preferences

Make it inclusive
Gifts should be planned by keeping in mind not only the organisation’s objectives, but also should be selected as per recipients’ preferences.
