Useful gifts that will last
Corporate gifts are usually bought in bulk and when the numbers add up, so do the costs. At such a time, saving a few rupees here and there may seem like the easy way to cut costs. However, if you settle for an inferior product that spoils or stops working after a short time, you will do more harm than good to your image. If you are giving a gift, give a good one. Pick a smaller item of good quality than what looks like a big and expensive gift but is of poor quality. A gift that lasts will continue to form a good impression for a long time.
