Thanksgiving and the promotional products

Posted on 23/11/2010 by Carletti mathilde Categorized: Interesting Market information

Andy from PromoDirect in Canada comes a tell us about the ways to say « Thank you » for Thanksgiving.

The event was celebrated to give thanks to God for helping the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony survive their first brutal winter in New England. The first Thanksgiving feast lasted three days, providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans.

I have always been fascinated by the thanksgiving day despite that we don’t celebrate it in Europe, especially because of the turkey and the mashed potatoe that always made me salivate a lot !

The Thanksgiving day takes play every last thursday of November.

Let’s see what are Andy’s advises on how to say thank you for thanksgiving:


« Through the year, your clients and employees have been the driving force of your business success and this Thanksgiving, lend a voice to those unsaid words of gratitude and say Thank You in style.

Say it with sweets:
Everybody loves chocolates and everybody includes your clients and staff too. Try gifting them a box of the most delectable promotional chocolates customized with your name and a ‘Thank you’ and smiles, as sweet as a dozen candies, are guaranteed to light up their faces.

Say it with praise
Thanksgiving is an ideal day to show your appreciation to your employees. Thank each employee for his/her contribution to your business and stress that each of them is responsible for the success attained. For example: Gift all your employees, promotional t-shirts that say ‘best employee of the year’. Your ‘thank you’ will linger as a permanent embrace for many days to come.

Say it with your brand:
How many times have you used promotional items to show your corporate side? Now use them to show your considerate one. This Thanksgiving, make your corporate gifts more personal by adding a « thank you » to your imprinted marketing message.

Lastly, Say it with action :
What’s the immediate image that Thanksgiving invokes? You are sitting around a table with your family, and a scrumptious-looking roast turkey in the center. Show your clients and employees that they and their families are important to you. Flexible timings that promote « family time » can be an all around the year Thanksgiving gift to your employees, while gifts like promotional photo frames that can be enjoyed by the entire family, are a good way to boost customer relations.

In John F Kennedy’s words…
« As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. » (Thanksgiving Proclamation, 1963)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks Andy, and a happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!
