Imagine it’s Black Friday. Customers are lined around the block to get into a coffee shop. While you can appreciate the need for those early morning shoppers to get a caffeine fix, a line wrapping around the block for coffee on Black Friday is still an unusual sight to see. That’s when you realize that while people are waiting in line for coffee, most of them are there for their free gift: a customized holiday ornament from their favorite local coffee shop!
Consider the brilliance of this marketing plan: friends and family will see a custom holiday ornament on so many trees in homes during the holiday season, leading to hundreds, maybe even thousands of impressions to people who are likely to trust brands their friends and family do. While people are heading out to stores, or, let’s be real, on their way home from the early morning shopping they’ve done, seeing a line makes them wonder what the buzz is about at a coffee shop - making them consider that it must be a great place for great coffee, especially when people are willing to wait in another line on Black Friday.
This is not the only way custom Christmas ornaments can make a big impact during the holiday season. Whether you’re looking to add a special touch to a corporate gift, give an appreciation gift to customers or volunteers, or design a unique item for a fundraising opportunity, custom Christmas Ornaments provide a unique holiday gift that can be customized to fit an organization’s needs.

Custom Christmas Ornaments Make a Great Gift
- School and Cause Fundraisers
- Corporate Gifts to Clients / Customers
- Thank You Gift for Holiday Donations
- Volunteer Appreciation Gifts
- The Perfect Gift Tag
School and Cause Fundraisers
We’ve all seen or been held captive by the traditional school fundraiser before, whether it’s been overpriced Christmas wrapping paper or popcorn stuffed tins. Not only do those companies keep over 45 percent of the money the fundraising brings in, the products they sell have no emotional tie to the school or even the clubs within a school. Because of this, it’s difficult to get parents and family members who want to help, to get excited by these options, much less extended friends and family.
Custom Christmas ornaments, however, provide an opportunity to customize fundraising options for the school - and even an opportunity to have different custom ornaments for the school’s sports teams, band, dance, or clubs, building years of great memories that will be renewed each year the ornament is placed on a Christmas tree. The ability to customize these gifts also means that each year can be different, setting up a long-standing holiday tradition that people in the community will be excited by and look forward to each year.
Just like a school fundraiser, a cause fundraiser operates much the same way. Whether your church is looking for a unique fundraiser for its parishioners or your nonprofit organization wants another opportunity to raise the bar for its final fundraising events for the year, custom Christmas ornaments can be customized each year to bring unique fundraising excitement to your organization.
Corporate Gifts to Clients / Customers
We’ve already discussed how a custom ornament as a gift with purchase can be a huge success, but have you also considered how unique this option can be for a business to give to each of its clients in appreciation for their business? Not only will a holiday gift make your clients and customers feel appreciated, but it helps continue to build relationships.
Thank You Gift for Donations
Every organization that raises funds should keep a list of those individuals who give throughout the year, because donors who donate once are more likely to donate again. Instead of sending out the standard “Thank You” holiday card, have you considered sending a custom Holiday ornament instead to make contributors to your cause feel appreciated? More than a card that will likely get tossed into the garbage each year, a custom holiday ornament reminds them each year that it gets placed on the Christmas tree that the organization they’ve given money to appreciates that gift.
Volunteer Appreciation Gifts
While donors give money, volunteers often give a more powerful resource to making your organization and their events a success: their time. Make sure they feel appreciated so they will continue to support your organization with a custom Christmas ornament.
The Perfect Gift Tag
Take your holiday packaging to the next level with the perfect gift tag: a custom Holiday ornament. As unboxing becomes experiential, each time the person receiving the gift looks at their custom holiday ornament that first appeared on their gift, they will remember feeling appreciated.
