Last Minute Corporate Gift Ideas From Local Toronto Vendors
Updated: Mar 23
With most of us working from home in 2020, the office holiday events and gift exchange look a lot different this year and with so much going on, it is easy to overlook or forget employee or co-worker gifts as we no longer see each other in person on a regular basis. As we spent more time working from home and with family, this year has shown us that it is the small things that really matter, and giving thoughtful and locally produced gifts to the people we cherish and work with; not only goes to build morale and let our friends know that we are still thinking about them; you also support local small businesses that are struggling to survive during the holiday season with lockdown and restrictions in place throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
As event planners, this year has been devastating. The live event industry in Mississauga, Toronto and throughout Canada is hanging on by a thread, and in a season where we would be booked and very busy; event vendors, event planners and event designers are out of work and wondering how to keep the lights on and our staff employed.
As its said, the show must go on and at Creative Event Solutions, we believe that we will be able to have live events again and we cannot wait to work and celebrate with you. In case you are a last minute shopper like a few of us on the C.E.S team or you need ideas for local products that your employees or co-workers will love and actually use, we have complied a curated list of some of our favourite local products, featuring local vendors that can be found in one spot on-line and where you can shop with one basket. Introducing Toronto Market Co. and access to over 100 local vendors. Orders can be placed until Sunday at midnight and delivery or contactless pick-up is available before Christmas day if orders are placed as soon as possible.
