  • Updated Top 10 Door Gift Malaysia for Annual Dinner 2018

    Now that it is past mid-year and nearer to the end of the year, we have a clearer picture of what kind of annual dinner door gifts that committees at Malaysian companies and organizations are looking for. Remember the Top 10 Annual Dinner Door Gift Malaysia 2018 that we wrote at the end of last year? Yeah our predictions are almost spot on! Well, the keyword here is, almost 😀

    If you are one of the committees responsible for coming up with ideas for this year’s 2018 door gift for annual dinner, say no more, as in, you do not have to go anywhere else. We have the perfect list to be presented to your superiors and the search will be over before you knew it (so that you can go back to do your day jobs and not worry with the extra-curricular task 😊)

     

    Again, it has to be mentioned that this list is not exhaustive or conclusive as it is only backed by our own internal data, public information as well as surveys done at premium gift exhibitions. But fear not, trust me, it as a true as it can get.

    Lo and behold, these are our updated annual dinner door gift Malaysia’s top 10 in 2018.

    1. 3 in 1 & 2 in 1 Charging Cable

    Spot on as we predicted in our last December blog post, 3 in 1 charging cable and also its sister variant 2 in 1 charging cable are the most requested annual dinner door gifts Malaysia in 2018. The reason is simple, as everyone now from their children to grandparents have a smartphone nowadays, a charging cable would be a very practical gifts for essentially everyone! The charging cable would continue to be one of the most important accessories to be had by Malaysian for the foreseeable future, until everyone’s phone can be charged wirelessly one day.

    Selection available – 2 in 1 Charging Cable Set, 2 in 1 iPhone & Android Charging Cable with Keyring, 2 in 1 iPhone & Android Retractable Charging Cable, 3 in 1 Charging Cable with Type-C, 3 in 1 Multi-Charging Cable

     

    1. Bottle & Mug (Including suction bottle & suction mug)Suction-Double-Wall-Cup-340ml-small

    Although we predicted the suction bottle and mug variant will be all the rage in 2018, the old regular bottle and mug continue to be in high demand. That is not surprising as similar to the reasoning that we gave to charging cable, everyone from the children to grandparents could use the mug or bottle in their daily lives.

     

     

    Selection available – Suction Double Wall Cup (340ml), Suction Double Wall Bottle (330ml), Suction Mug (470ml), Thermal Suction Bottle (400ml) , Travel Glass with Neoprene Pouch

    1. Power BankLi- Polymer Power Bank 10000mAh

    Power bank continue to be on hot demand ever since the introduction of this product in premium gift scene in early part of this decade. Although we predicted the higher capacity of power bank will take over to rule the day, the lower capacity especially those above 4000mAh range continue to be requested by door gift customers. We think this is because the higher capacity has not reached the sweet spot price range of RM30 where the bulk of the premium gifts demand are at. As the price of batteries continue to come down, the price trend will further move towards that sweet spot sooner or later.

    Selection available – Li-Polymer Power Bank 10000mAh, Li Polymer Power Bank 10000mAh , Ultra-thin 4200mAh Power Bank

    1. Multi-Tools Set

Hey I bet even the office workers out there would appreciate this kind of gift. Hey, you might never know when you need your office chair screws to be tighten..

    Selection available – 8 in 1 Tool Set with LED, House Shaped 4pcs Tool Set

  • Door Gift for Every Ocassions

     

    There is a new emerging trend which states that door gifts are a perfect way of receiving your guests. In this way you will be able to offer them something symbolic and classy, transforming a little gathering in something more. Door gifts don’t have to be too expensive, and their charm consists in simplicity.

    The main reason people like to handle door gifts is because in this way they are able to create their own unique signature, paying attention to every little thing, being thus able to make a statement. This doesn’t mean that you will have to use door gifts every time a friend comes in visit. This would be too much, and the important events won’t be as special as they are meant to be. Mentioning important events may be a clue for you, as you are able to see that door gifts are actually used when you have a party, or an important event/gathering.

    This little object may be the symbol of your event, and therefore each time they will look at it, they will remember you and the wonderful time spent at your place.

    • Events. Exhibitors give out small and inexpensive gifts to visitors so that the brand recognition can be carried over even when the particular event ended.
    • Birthday parties. You celebrate your birthday once a year, and you can make a tradition by handling little totems of this important event from your life. You don’t have to overspend on these gifts, since usually they are quite affordable, and you can easily choose from a wide variety of gifts especially chosen for you. In this way your birthday will be memorable, and your friends will appreciate the gesture
    • Book Clubs. Do you have the book club meetings at your place? If the answer is yes, you can make this meetings more interesting, by offering each member something symbolic.
    • Baby shower. A baby is always a reason for happiness, and therefore, by throwing a baby shower for the mother to be, you can also hand over a few gifts for all the guests. It will be a thoughtful attention, and everyone will leave with a smile on the face. Such nice surprises will always make someone happy.
    • Weekly movie nights. Movie nights can become something epic if you create a special tradition. You can buy a few gifts that can relate with the movie. In this way you will be able to personalize this event, creating something totally different.
    • Pajamas party. Once in a while you can gather with your girls, talking about guys and many more interesting things. You can share secrets while drinking a glass of wine. You can loosen the mood by offering each one of your friends something symbolic, preferably something funny and out of the ordinary.

    As you can see, it is really easy to choose some moments for these door gifts, and with a simple attention you will be able to make your friends happy, offering them a great time and some unique memories.
