Cool, sustainable door gift ideas from women-led brands around Asia

If you’ve ever attended a corporate event of any kind, you must’ve been familiar with door gifts, which the participants receive as a token of participating in an event. The topic of company door gifts is usually taken for granted, but the truth is, a door gift is a way to connect with your attendees at a deeper level. It sends a message that your brand is special — a message that the participants will hold on to long after the event is over. But let’s be honest, the door gifts that a company might have put so much effort into can be soul-less, low in quality, or pretty but useless, and often be (sadly) thrown away or never, ever touched. 

If you’re in charge of preparing unique door gifts for your company’s upcoming corporate event, here’s one important tip to make your event successful. The key to picking out a perfect door gift is sticking to the golden rule — functionality and a great story to tell. With our suggestions below, you’ll discover that a perfect door gift can be both easy to source, value for money, practical, and meaningful.
