Wilkin & Sons have proven that a marketing gift pack does not need to be bulky and cumbersome in order to attract the eye of shoppers. This custom gift set highlights their heritage as a brand and encourages customers to use Wilkin & Sons products in new ways.
Not just effective – relevant too:
Brand history: Wilkin & Sons is a brand with traditional sensibilities and a heritage to take pride in. The family business, founded in 1885, have produced chutneys, jams and spreads for decades. Wilkin & Sons products are locally crafted in the English town of Tiptree.
Presence in Tiptree: Moreover, Wilkin & Sons own more than 1,000 acres of land in Tiptree, where the produce required for these products is grown.
Relevant items: Wilkin & Sons have gifted shoppers a cheese baking dish and spatula as a gift with purchase. The cheese dish bakes Camembert or other soft cheese into a warm appetizer.
Encourages repeat purchases: This dish is commonly enjoyed with chutney, making it a clever choice for Wilkin & Sons. Additionally, customers who enjoy eating baked cheese with their chutney will likely purchase Wilkin & Sons’ product more frequently in the future.
Heres what makes this marketing gift pack stand out:
Practical marketing gift: The cheese dish and wooden spatula are highly practical gifts. “Tiptree”, engraved on the spatula, links to the brand’s history in this area.
Traditional: Wilkin & Sons have very refined and traditional branding. The label bears a family crest and displays the product’s name without any colour or other design. This places the emphasis on the product itself, which is visible through a sturdy glass jar.
High quality: Because of Wilkin & Sons’ history as a brand, gifting plastic custom giveaway items would not connect to their brand identity. Wood and porcelain – from the spatula and cheese baker – are high quality, natural materials. This will reinforce the brand’s image as a trustworthy purveyor of premium products.
Positioning: Placing the jar inside the cheese baker was a wise decision. This showcases both products and suggests that they should be used together.
Simple yet impactful: The colours used here are fairly neutral, with natural wood tones and white featured prominently. The orange shade of the cheese dish is attention-grabbing without being over the top. This also links nicely to the colour of the chutney.
What can Wilkin and Sons improve?
Limit plastic used: The plastic which keeps the pieces in this marketing gift pack in place feels too prominent. This conflicts with Wilkin & Sons’ branding and takes attention away from the high-quality products being given away.
Consider cardboard instead: I suggest that the brand use cardboard in their marketing branded gift pack. This is cost-effective and more environmentally friendly than plastic. Sturdy or even plain brown cardboard has a natural look and will create a premium feel that is currently compromised.
Wilkin & Sons have produced a great marketing gift pack that stands out on the shelf, improving their brand’s value and ultimately, market share.
