What Guest Favours Reveal About Your Company

October 25, 2017

How many guest favours have you received - and kept - from the events you’ve attended?

You might want to consider what giving certain types of guest favours says about you as a company.

1. Picture frames
This is a practical gift – you can never have enough photo frames.

You’ll delight your guests if your frame includes a photo of them, ready to surprise them on their arrival.

Bonus points scored if you visit their facebook page to download a flattering shot, for thoughtfulness and creating moments of delight.

2. Custom glassware
Unless the majority of your guests are in their late teens or early 20s and have virtually no crockery, glasses or furniture to set up their first home, not many people will thrill to having a wine glass inscribed with your company logo.

Nor will they ever use it until they have a massive party at home and bring out all the “cheap” glasses which are allowed to be broken.

3. Keychain
I still have the keychain given to me by the people who sold us the car, only because I cannot remove the car key.

Unless it’s of, say, a five-star resort (in which you’re holding your event), and of which many people would like to be reminded and even display proudly as they fling their keys down, please avoid this mass-produced favour.

4. Beach balls
You’re a fun business – this would be an ideal favour at a beach-themed event.

5. Plants
The obvious choice for home and garden-related businesses, plants are also a symbol of growth and therefore a good guest favour for financial institutions. If they're olive trees, they can appeal to your Mediterranean clients.

6. Food
An excellent choice whether you're choosing favours for couples or corporates, everyone loves a yummy food snack, even more so if they can be eaten straight away or have proper packaging that allows them to cope with being tossed in a handbag or manbag!

7. Candles
You want to give something your guests can enjoy as they relax at home.

So give them lightly fragranced candles in glass or steel containers for safe carriage home. 

8. Wine stoppers, bottle openers, flasks, bottles
Drinking-related guest favours strongly suggests you're either a wine business, or your company likes to be known for its heavy-drinking party animals - which is perfect if you're an advertising agency.

9. Place card holders, napkin rings
You believe your guests entertain as much as you do. Or you expect an invitation to a classy dinner party sometime soon at your VIP guest’s home.
