Eco-friendly and Sustainable Corporate Gifts
If your conference is geared towards women, sustainable fashion jewelry is a perfect gift! Keep your jewelry gifts simple. At Alra, we like to provide bracelets and simple stud earrings for those who want our jewelry for their gift bags. The best part about Alora jewelry is that they all come with a meaning card and in gift packaging. That means that if your attendee can keep the gift for themselves or gift the jewelry to someone special in their lives.
With all corporate gifts, you can choose to have your business card added to the gift bag. With enough notice, we can create a custom piece of jewelry for all your attendees!
Take a look at these custom pink Canadian themed bracelets that we created for a fashion film festival!
Books are always a great idea! If you have a key-note speaker who has published a book then provide a copy to each of your guests. You can put your logo on the back of each book or inside the cover page This will require volunteer hours, but it is worth it! Every time the guest reads your book or glances at it on their bookshelf they will be reminded of your event.
Also, most people believe it is a cardinal sin to throw books away. That guarantees that your gift will stay in their possession (almost) forever!
These are GREAT gifts. With almost every store in the country asking customers to bring their own bag, it is a great idea to give guests a fun bag that they will use every day.
Try not to buy a bag that is too logo heavy. Lots of people don't want to walk around with a tech logo to the shopping mall or grocery store. Instead, get a bag that has your logo or visually appealing design. When ordering, ask the manufacturer to stitch your logo on the front or inside the bag.
Finally, choose a foldable bag. This makes the product easy to fit into a larger gift bag and will guarantee that your guest actually use it since it can fit into their handbag or briefcase easily.

Tips for Curating an Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Corporate Gift Bag
Be sure to choose quality over quantity
You don't have to go overboard. First set a budget per bag and get the highest quality that you can afford. It's not a bad thing to choose fewer gifts or even a single, show-stopping item that guests will truly appreciate. Trust us, one high-end quality item that they will use is worth much more than ten smaller, low-quality items.
Focus on sustainable items
Using your budget to focus on sustainable items will send a signal to your guests that you care about the environment. Even if you only get to weave in sustainability into your gift bags, it is better than nothing.
Keep travel in mind
Try not to include anything bulky or fragile in your gift bags if you know the majority of attendees will be flying home. Try and add items that are lightweight and don't take up too much space if you are giving gift bags to guests from an international conference.
Customize and personalize gifts
Customization doesn't just mean putting their name on an item. Although this could be a good idea for smaller events or events with high ticket prices, personalization doesn't always mean monograms. You can personalize based on interests or customer lifetime value.
