PRLog - Dec. 7, 2012 - DALLAS -- As the holidays approach, thoughts began turning to gifts, and businesses are not exempt. Corporate gifts can help companies establish goodwill with prospects and maintain positive relationships with customers and employees. However, if done incorrectly, corporate gift-giving can have the opposite effect. Before giving a corporate gift, Massage Envy – in the business of helping relieve stress – suggests these tips and corporate purchasing ideas:
Company policy – While many companies allow the giving and receiving of gifts, not all do. Those that do may restrict the amount of money that can be spent. Company handbooks usually outline policies on gift-giving, but if the handbook is vague or isn’t available, ask the intended recipient or the HR department for clarification.
Cost and messaging – Corporate gifts are a reflection of the business. With “inexpensive”
Selection – Gifts come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. To select the right ones, gift-givers should ask themselves: Is the gift gender-specific or gender-neutral?
Timing – Allow time for purchasing, wrapping, mailing or presenting. If hand-delivering, check with the recipient or recipient’s assistant to find out the most convenient time. If mailing perishable items, such as fruit baskets, make sure the business will be open and the recipient will not be on vacation during the estimated delivery.
“When in doubt, a gift card is always good choice,” said Lance O’Pry, regional developer for Massage Envy DFW. “Most gift cards can be purchased directly through the company, they’re available for a wide variety of products and services, they don’t have to be wrapped and can be included inside a holiday card, and they’re easy to deliver.”
“A great way to say ‘we care about you’ is a Massage Envy gift card. A Massage Envy gift card is an ideal way to say thank you to clients, customers, employees or prospects,” notes O’Pry. “Massage therapy has incredible health benefits. Among other things, it can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, relieve headaches and even strengthen the immune system. So you’re not only giving them a gift they can enjoy, but you’re also ensuring their health and wellness. Also, with over 800 locations across the United States, recipients can use the card almost anywhere.”
O’Pry added that Massage Envy is offering a holiday special on gift cards purchased at one of the 28 Dallas/Fort Worth locations – anyone who buys three $75 Massage Envy gift cards (or any combination that equals $225) before Dec. 24, 2012, will receive a complimentary, one-hour massage session gift card. The gift cards can be purchased at any of the 28 DFW Massage Envy locations and can be redeemed any Massage Envy clinic, nationwide.
At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is $49. Memberships are available for $59 per month, which includes a one-hour massage session and entitles members to additional, unlimited massages at a discounted rate. A number of Massage Envy Spa locations also offer facials. Massage Envy Spas use Murad® skincare products and are available for $10 more than massage sessions.
