10 Reasons To Send New Year Gifts

The New Year is almost here, which means it’s time to think about New Year gifts and plans for your New Year’s Eve celebrations. If you’ve never thought about New Year’s gifts before, this is the perfect year to get started. After what has been a massively eventful and very challenging year for all Australians, there’s never been a better time to show your support and appreciation to loved ones. There are several people you might want to send a New Year’s Gift to this year, including:

  • Your staff or colleagues
  • Your close friends
  • Your family and relatives
  • Clients of your business
  • Your neighbours
  • Your children’s teachers
  • Your boss or director
  • Hosts of your New Year’s party

For many people, New Year gifting is a relatively new concept. That’s why our team of bakers and dessert curators have pulled together a list of ten reasons why you might want to send New Year gifts. Keep reading below to get some gifting inspiration and understand the many benefits of delivering gifts over the New Year period. There’s a good reason for everyone to get around the New Year gifting bandwagon!


  1. To keep your clients onboard for the New Year.

The start of the New Year is the most effective and appropriate time to send client appreciation gifts. If you run a business and have clients, it’s very fitting to send them a New Year gift. The end of the calendar year is often a time when businesses and individuals evaluate their expenses over the past year and decide whether they want to continue working with certain businesses in the coming twelve months. To ensure they reflect on your business positively and choose to continue working with you, you should send them a New Year client appreciation gift.

Sending gifts to your corporate clients will also help your brand stand out from the crowd and ensure you are still recognised as the most favourable company amongst your competition. To keep your gift as professional and impressive as possible, you might also want to consider branded gifts and personalised gift hampers Sydney.

Remember that some businesses take time off over the New Year period, and individuals may be on holiday with their family, so you might want to send the gift prior or after the New Year celebration. For this exact reason, we also recommend gifting presents that won’t go out of date or expire quickly (in case your gift receiver doesn’t get the present until a couple of weeks down the track). We strongly recommend custom sugar cookies Sydney or non-perishable gift hampers Sydney for effective client appreciation gift in the New Year.

  1. New Year gifts are a great alternative to Christmas gifts.

If you forgot to send a Christmas gift to somebody in your life, a New Year gift is the best way to make it up to them. As we’ve mentioned in previous blogs, it can be really difficult to remember all the people you need to gift over Christmas (especially if you have a large workplace or a massive family). Thankfully, if you accidentally forgot someone from your Christmas shopping list, there is an opportunity to fix the error. Just get a suitable New Year gift or gift hamper delivered to their door.

Additionally, not everybody celebrates Christmas, so a New Year gift may be more appropriate for people who have certain religious beliefs or don’t engage in Christmas festivities. This is particularly applicable in a corporate environment or workplace where you may not know the beliefs of your colleagues or employees. A New Year gift will ensure you aren’t offending anyone, but you are still showing deep appreciation and acknowledgement of their loyalty to your company. Why not present your workplace with custom cookies to celebrate the New Year?

  1. A New Year gift will kick off 2021 to a great start.

Let’s not beat around the bush – 2020 was a difficult and tragic year for many Australians. It began with horrendous bushfires and then concluded with a pandemic. Everyone is hoping that the next twelve months will be better and less ‘eventful’ than the previous year or so. With many people feeling disadvantaged and in dismay due to the events that have taken place this year, there is one way you can attempt to cheer them up for the 2021 – with a gift hamper Sydney or personalised cookies!

To help your friends, family and acquaintances get into a positive mood for the New Year, surprise them with a thoughtful and motivating gift. It will allow them to feel loved and respected.

  1. Rally your team up for a great year ahead.

In a corporate setting, gifts are a great way to motivate and encourage your team to perform well. Coming back into the office after the Christmas holiday period can be challenging for many people – it’s hard to get back into work mode after having a fun and relaxing few weeks with family and friends. However, a New Year’s gift will help them feel welcomed back into the office and driven to be productive.

We recommend leaving the New Year’s gifts on your employees’ desks so they can be surprised with it on their first day back at work. A custom sugar cookie gift, paper pack or simple gift hamper will do the trick and get the positive vibes flowing throughout the office.

  1. Tie your New Year gift into other upcoming celebrations.

Are any of your friends about to have a baby or get married? You might be able to link your New Year’s gift into a baby shower bonbonniere or wedding hamper Sydney. If your friends have big celebrations or events coming up in the next twelve months, a small and thoughtful gift in the New Year will help them feel more relaxed and comforted that they have a friend to rely on. Just search online to find bombonieres for weddings, Christmas sugar cookies, baby shower cookies, and personalised cookies Sydney.

  1. Say thank you to the New Year party host.

Hosting a New Year’s party can be a time-consuming and expensive project. That’s why it’s important that you show your appreciation to the party hosts by gifting them with gift hampers Sydney or personalised cookies. It’s a thoughtful and easy way to say thank you for their efforts.

If you are hosting a New Year’s party event for your friends or family, you might to hand out custom cookies or personalised cookies Sydney as bonbonnieres to your guests. It will keep their stomachs full and ensure they are impressed by your party hosting skills.

  1. Get your neighbours on the same page for the New Year.

If you have had problematic relationships with your neighbours in the past, a friendly gift might help to ease tensions and ensure you can get along in the New Year. You don’t have to spend large sums of money – for example, an affordable custom cookie can achieve this goal. When wrapped and styled professionally, a simple cookie treat will make an enormous positive impact.

A New Year gift to neighbours can also get them on your side if you ever need their help. There are plenty of reasons why it’s beneficial to be on good terms with your neighbourhood. Essentially, it’s a pre-thanking gift for keeping an eye on your property while you’re away from home.

  1. Have some fun with your gift orders.

Gifting isn’t just fun for the person who receives the hamper or present. Researching, designing and buying New Year’s gifts can be fun for you too! Studies and research from around the globe actually suggest that gifting is more fun for the gifter than the giftee, because it allows them to feel as if they’ve done something meaningful and thoughtful for their friends and family. When ordering gift hampers Sydney, some companies will let you customise your hamper, which many people find enjoyable and exciting.

  1. Think about people who need it the most.

Some people have been financially setback by the global events of 2020, so a gift in the New Year could really make a difference to their lives. Think about all the people in your life and try to recall whether any of them have lost their job or endured difficulties over the past twelve months. If you are in a position where you can afford to gift these friends and family in need, then go ahead.

Food hampers and food gifts are a fantastic present idea, as they are useful and practical to everyone. Instead of sitting in a cupboard unused, they will actually help to reduce the food bill at the next grocery shop, or provide some treats to people who need the mood booster.

  1. Pay it forward.
