Let’s be honest: Who doesn’t love checking into your hotel for an event and getting a gift bag full of goodies? Next time you plan a conference or company-sponsored trip, make your first impression a lasting one with our best tips and room drop gift ideas. Aside from budget, these three guidelines will steer you toward the perfect swag for your next event!
#1: Make it practical.
When it comes to room drop gifts, people like gifts that are genuinely useful. Food is by far the most practical and popular room drop gift for a reason. Your guests will appreciate being able to skip the overpriced mini bar and dive into delicious treats like gourmet butter toffee or fresh roasted nuts and trail mix. We offer a wide variety of food gifts to fit every budget, and we can customize them with your company logo or messaging. (Check out this post for more food gift ideas!)
Will your guests be lounging on the beach at some exotic resort? Then go for a waterproof promo item, a beach towel or a mesh bottom beach tote. Can you get people’s sizes before the event? If so, consider a seasonally appropriate piece of apparel, like a t-shirt in the summer or a jacket in the fall. Does your event fall during rainy season? A nice umbrella makes a great gift, too.
#2: Make it meaningful.
If your event builds around a central theme or takes place in an interesting locale, incorporate that into cleverly designed room drop gifts. It might be as simple as using a photograph of your destination as the background for your artwork, or pulling together a bunch of items that relate to your theme. (For more ideas on travel gifts, click here.)
You can get gorgeous full color, photo quality print on so many different items now that the sky’s the limit with what you can do. We also offer a number of themed bundles that might work for your event, like this “day at the beach” kit or one of these golf kits.
We can even help you put together a custom kit that’s specific to YOUR event! We specialize in custom kits, so please contact us to talk details!
#3: Make it portable.
Now that most airlines charge for luggage, you’ll want to either choose gifts that are portable, or plan ahead to have them shipped back home to your guests. Collapsible bags, totes and accessories make great room drop gifts for this very reason. (So when people realize there’s no way all that stuff is going to fit in their suitcase, you’ve got it covered.) We like the variety of styles from RuMe, including the C-Fold, RuMeAll, and the Classic tote. The Vertex line also offers a great quality packable backpack and duffle bags.
