The Magic of Table Matters: Raising the Bar of Corporate Gifting with Remarkable Tableware in Singapore

Jun 26, 2023 Daniela Mae Macale

Welcome Aboard!

In corporate gifting, just like in love, it's not the thought alone that counts but the gift itself! A little appreciation can take a long way, especially when you want to win over your business partners and employees. If you think 'corporate gifting' sounds like the name of a new reality TV show, you're not too far off. Imagine dazzling tableware that leaves an indelible impression. That's where Table Matters of Singapore steps in, casting the spell of high-end corporate gifting.

Unravelling the Corporate Gifting Conundrum

Why all the buzz around corporate gifting, you ask? Let's dive into this time-honoured business practice, often compared to the intricate art of tending to a bonsai tree. 

A Timeless Tradition: Just like the process of tending to a garden, corporate gifting isn't a one-off event but rather a practice steeped in history and tradition. Akin to how the gardener meticulously plans the layout, prune the shrubs, and selects the perfect fertilisers, corporate gifting also requires thoughtfulness, understanding of the recipient, and the ability to anticipate their needs and preferences.

A Crafted Art Form: Crafting the perfect corporate gift mirrors the finesse and precision required in pottery or sculpting. It's not just about the gift but how it's presented. Table Matters understands this and offers a plethora of beautifully crafted, high-quality tableware. Their products aren't just objects but works of art that reflect the giver's taste and the recipient's sophistication.

The Catalyst of Business Relationships: Corporate gifting could be compared to an ecologist restoring a forest, ensuring each species thrives in harmony. Corporate gifts nourish and fortify business relationships like this, keeping them healthy and vibrant. They facilitate the growth of a thriving professional ecosystem where employees, clients, and partners coexist in a mutually beneficial environment.

Mastering the Art of Corporate Gifting

If corporate gifting were a game, we'd all want to be the grandmasters. Here's your strategy guide to checkmate the competition in this intriguing game of professional gratitude:

  1. Budget Balancing:

Setting a budget is one of the first moves in the corporate gifting game. It's a delicate balancing act that requires careful planning and a bit of savvy. While we all love splashing out on extravagant gifts, the reality is that even the most generous budget has limits. Remember, it's not about the price tag but the thought and effort you put into selecting the gift. The goal is to find a gift that embodies your appreciation and respect without making your accountant faint.

  1. Quality over Quantity:

The value of a gift lies not in its cost but in its quality and relevance. You want your corporate gift to be memorable, cherished, and, above all, used. Whether it's an elegant piece of tableware from Table Matters or a stylish, branded pen, the most important thing is that your gift should be affordable. After all, the last thing you want is for your gift to end up in a drawer, collecting dust.

  1. Consistent with the Brand Image:

This one is a must. A corporate gift is an extension of your brand. The gift should represent and defend your brand's values and image like a knight defending their king. Everything should be consistent with your brand identity, from the design and colour scheme to the type of product and its packaging. A sleek gadget might be the perfect fit if you're a tech company. If you're a luxury boutique, an exquisite piece of Table Matters' tableware could do the trick. Keep it in line with your brand, and you'll make an impression and boost brand recall.

  1. Occasion Appropriateness:

Your corporate gift should fit the occasion just as you wouldn't wear beachwear to a formal dinner. There's a time and place for everything. For instance, a retirement dinner may call for a nostalgic gift that the retiree can cherish as a memento of their time at the company. For a product launch or corporate event, you might want something more contemporary and aligned with the event's theme. Remember, the right gift can leave a lasting impression at the right time.
