Corporate gifting sorted: Our 2020 Festive Gift Guide

As we rapidly approach the end of the year, it’s time to start thinking about how to show your loyal clients and faithful employees just how much you appreciate them, and say thanks for sticking out what has undoubtedly been a challenging year for everyone.

Corporate gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but the ones that are genuinely appreciated are those that give real value to the recipient – whatever that might mean to them. Blackhawk Network’s huge range of gift cards, eftpos cards and digital payment solutions are the perfect way to thank clients, reward employees and strengthen relationships as we head into the new year.

Let’s get gifting! Check out our range of gift solutions.

Mobile Pay

Mobile Pay is a digital payment solution where digital Mastercards are issued directly to recipients via SMS, adding funds straight into their native mobile wallets, which can then be used to purchase items instore and online.

Not only is it a completely contactless option, perfect for remote gifting, but research tells us that 88% of consumers would prefer to receive a contactless Mobile Pay Mastercard over any other digital or physical gift card reward – so why not give your clients and employees something they really want?

Better yet, the entire experience can be tailored to your business including bespoke messaging and branding to make it fun, unique and special for this time of year.

Virtual Visa

Virtual Visa is another fantastic choice for completely touch free gifting, allowing you to deliver a completely online experience to your clients and staff.

How it works is easy – Blackhawk Network issues Virtual Visa codes which you can distribute directly to your lucky recipients (or Blackhawk Network can do it on your behalf). They then simply visit a dedicated redemption website to retrieve their Virtual Visa card, and from that point the gift of their choice is just a few clicks away – they can redeem online or over the phone wherever Visa is accepted.

eftpos & Branded eftpos Cards

If you like the idea of giving a physical gift, but still want to give them complete freedom to spend it on whatever they like, an eftpos Gift Card is the way to go. eftpos is the most widely used debit card system in Australia, accounting for approximately 70% of debit card transactions which will give your customers a sense of gratitude and trust.

Branded eftpos Cards are fully customisable making them a popular choice for corporate gifting, especially during the festive season. Get creative and have some fun creating a design that really reflects your business and resonates with your clients and employees.

Swap Gift Cards

The traditional gift card has been given a digital twist! Blackhawk Network’s new Swap Gift Card range consists of three gift card categories – Entertainment, Celebration and Adventure & Leisure – which can be redeemed online for an eGift card of choice from a selection of leading brands.

Celebrate, Swap and Shop! Swap Gift Cards are a great way to tailor your gift to a category you know your recipients will appreciate, but still give them the freedom to choose something they really want. With brands such as Xbox, Binge, eBay, Sephora, Hoyts, The Iconic, Redballoon, Anaconda, Sofitel + many more your recipients will feel spoilt for choice and excited about the chance to indulge.

Ultimate Gift Card Range

Sometimes you just can’t go past a classic gift card. Always a crowd pleaser, the gift card is a timeless choice for festive gifting.

Of course, Blackhawk Network’s Ultimate Gift Card Range is better than your average gift card – rather than having to choose one retailer, the Ultimate Gift Card gives you one gift card that can be used across multiple retailers.

The range includes cards with a selection of retailers grouped together to make the perfect gift for any person or occasion. Choose from Kids, Teens, Him, Her, Home, Students, Style, Eats or our latest additions – Active and Christmas.
