7 Bulk Gift Ideas For Your Next Big Holiday GatheringShawn
At Personalized By Kate, we’re big proponents of finding gifts that are special, meaningful, and customized to the recipient. It means so much more when you can tailor your gift purchase to the individual, and they’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness as much as they will the gift itself. That said, there are times when buying individual, personalized presents just isn’t practical. It’s then that you might find occasion to turn to bulk gift ideas. By choosing this direction, you can save money and time while still ensuring that everyone feels welcome and acknowledged.
Some situations where bulk gift ideas can shine:
– Holidays: We’ve all felt that last-minute Christmas crunch, where you realize you have a shopping list that is entirely too long. This can put pressure on you from both a time and financial perspective. But the holidays shouldn’t be about such stress; by getting everyone the same thing, you can cover your bases without driving yourself to the madhouse.
– Workplace occasions: Are you putting on a seminar? Taking your business to a trade show? Are you looking for something you can give out to customers to show your appreciation? In any of these situations, looking for bulk gifts makes much more sense than it does to individualize your purchases.
– Bachelor/Bachelorette parties: It is customary for both the bride and groom to give gifts to the members of their respective wedding parties. In this case, it makes sense to find bulk gift ideas that can also be personalized. Whether you personalize to the recipient or the event of your wedding is all up to you.
– Classroom gift exchanges: On certain holidays, some teachers will expect or encourage students to bring gifts for all of their classmates. As a parent, you’ll definitely be interested in doing this on the lowest budget possible. And since you don’t want one kid getting jealous of others, bulk gifts make the most sense.
Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to relevant bulk gift occasions. If you have a situation coming up that calls for this kind of gift, read on for some of our favorite ideas!
1 – Corkscrew Bottle Openers
What better way to show your appreciation to a group of dedicated friends than with this customized corkscrew bottle opener? This useful tool comes in 12 different colors and you can even change the orientation of the message to fit your aesthetic preferences. It’s best not to go overboard in terms of cost when buying bulk gifts. This bottle opener hits the right line between thoughtful and pricey, and it’s sure to go over well with your recipients.
2 – Personalized Shot Glasses
Shot glasses really shine when purchased (and given away) in bulk. Individually affordable, they only become more reasonably priced when you buy several at a time. These make great party favors, excellent gifts for groomsmen or bridesmaids, and outstanding promotional giveaways. The one featured in the photo is close to the top of our favorites list, but you can click this link to see our entire collection: Personalized shot glasses.
3 – Keychains
We’re sure that, in the not-so-distant future, every door in the world will be opened via an app on your phone. Until then, we’re all still stuck with the old tech: The plain, old-fashioned key. As such, many of us carry more than a few keys with us almost everywhere we go. They are needed at home, at the office, and the commute in between. Since everyone needs keys, everyone needs a keychain. An inexpensive gift, keep keychains in mind when you go shopping for your next occasion.
4 – Monogrammed Beer Mugs
Sometimes a shot just won’t quite hit the spot. In that case, you might want a full glass of beer to suit your needs. But did you know that beer mugs can also make great bulk gift ideas? Easily customized for any letter you wish to inscribe, these mugs find the perfect balance between “bulk” and “individualized.” You can customize each mug for the recipient, of course, or use that space for your own monogram (or a letter signifying something else entirely).
5 – Candy
When it comes right down to it, candy may be the king of bulk gift ideas. The fun part is that it can be used for many different occasions (including Halloween). Kids love candy, so you’ll always know you hit the target when shopping for the under-10 set. But don’t automatically discount candy when it comes to adult gifts! After all, we still have a powerful sweet tooth here at Personalized By Kate, and we would never turn our backs on a free Hershey’s Kiss. Great for parties and classroom gift exchanges.
6 – Personalized Tote Bags
Whether you’re a busy dad who is always running to the grocery store for odds and ends or a college girl who enjoys spending her weekends at the beach, you likely have room in your life for a good tote bag. And if it can be said for you, it can be said for almost everyone! Customized text is available on many of these, so you can find the version you need.
7 – Personalized Tumblers
Tumblers of this sort are commonly associated with wine, but while they make ideal receptacles for your favorite fruity vintage, that is far from their sole purpose. These tumblers work just as well when holding water, coffee, juice, or any other delicious drink. They can be customized in any way you want, and their affordable pricing makes them a terrific bulk gift idea. If you’ve got wine lovers on your shopping list this year, these personalized tumblers are a no-brainer.
