When Should You Order Holiday Gifts?

Is it too early in the season to order holiday gifts for your staff, your vendors and your clients? When should you order holiday gifts? The answer is now! Truly, you may be getting into a time crunch when ordering your branded products for the holidays, but never fear; get started now and you’ll still have unique items to distribute. 

Why should you order holiday gifts when the holidays are two months away? If you want to find a vendor who can create branded items for you, you want to give yourself (and the vendor, like PrideBites enough time to assure you are getting the exact product you want. Don’t work with a vendor who skimps on quality in order to give you a product to distribute. Your name and your brand will be on the products you’re giving as gifts and those gifts need to be of the highest quality possible because in the hands of the recipients they are the “face” of your brand. 

Branded products are an ideal way for your brand to be in the hands of your pet-loving community. PrideBites has created branded products for companies like Titos Handmade Vodka, the Houston Astros and Bumble among others. Remember, you don’t need to be a pet-centric brand in order to connect with a pet-loving community. 

Pet parents and millennials are willing to spend a LOT of money on their pets. They will also be more likely to give their dog a toy, a collar or leash or bandana to wear and play with than they are to wear your branded t-shirts. 

When Should You Order Holiday Gifts?

What do you need to have ready when ordering branded products for your company? Here are a few things to consider. 

What type of item do you want? Do you want to hand out dog collars or leashes? Bandanas or dog toys? Perhaps you want to order a mix of items -- collars, dog toys and dog beds or coats for your “best” clients. 

How many items do you need? PrideBites offers a lower minimum order and price point for brands who want to order smaller quantities of items. You will be assigned an account representative from PrideBites who will work with you throughout the design and purchasing process. 

When can you use the branded items throughout the year? Consider those times throughout the year when you can use the branded items you’re purchasing. Remember, you can give gifts throughout the year -- anniversaries of a client’s time with you, the anniversary of your company, at a trade show, as an employee thank you, as a “gift with purchase” promotion your company is running. Find ways to work your branded dog products strategically into your marketing throughout the year -- get the most bang for your marketing buck!
