- Suction Mug or Bottle
Why? – Drinkware has been the staple of gifts that are given to dinner goers at company’s annual dinner ever since the concept of annual dinner was created. Ok we might exaggerate a bit.

Now your self-brewed caffe mocha will never spill on your office laptops again! However, be prepared, this drinkware goodness will cost you a bit but we promise it will be worth it!
- Executive Manicure Set

So the most basic requirement is, it has to be something that everyone can use. And this is why manicure set is such a suitable door gift for annual dinner as the product can be used by attendees of the annual dinner themselves or their family members.
- Big Capacity Power Banks
Why? This might sound like our argument for number one gift on the list but it is absolutely true, everyone now carries smartphone with them and they cannot ‘survive’ without them (ok those who were born before Merdeka might be able to survive without smartphones). What better way to ensure survival of their smartphones other than power banks! The difference between power banks that you got in annual dinner 2014 and those that you will be getting in 2018 is the capacity is now bigger since bigger capacity power banks is getting cheaper. What might cost RM100 in 2014 might now only cost RM50!
