Corporate gifting practice is not new in Indian corporate sectors. For years, to strengthen the mutual professional relationship as well as motivate reciprocity and thereby help enhance employee performance, corporate organizations have been presenting their employees with multiple gifts. Corporate gifting also promotes brand awareness, customer loyalty, and employee engagement. Even after the pandemic, while working from home has kind of become the new norm, corporate gifting, has in a way, helped organizations keep their employees connected and motivated. The rise in the corporate gifting trend has effectively boosted the corporate gifting industry with many more firms now joining the competition. With annual revenue of around 250,000 crores and is estimated to see a growth of around 200%, the corporate gifting industry will be an industry to watch out for in the coming future.

However, in the name of profit, many of those organizations are delivering poor quality products due to low-quality manufacturing as well as unorganized market planning, resulting in unplanned delays in delivery, which is kind of affecting the reputation of the industry in a bad way. Keeping the current market scenarios in mind, Nandakumar R founded Regalos India in 2015 and has successfully achieved his dream run by making the firm a frontrunner in the Personal Gifts, Corporate Gifts, and Institutional Gifts industry through his 2 decades of rich experience, excellent knowledge of the market and strong vision of future potential. From ideating to designing to execution and delivery, the firm helps clients at every stage of the process while staying committed to the highest standards of integrity and business ethics in terms of both Quality and Timely delivery of goods and services as a strategic partner.

The firm boasts of a highly motivated and committed group of professionals with strong organizational values as well as the ability to learn, develop, and execute on a continuous basis and a robust work culture valuing hard effort, learning, growth, and enjoyment. At an early career stage, Nandakumar realized that we all are living in a fractured world, where thanking for the hard work or appreciation was missing to an extent at the workplace and was a clear conflict with the fact that India is rich culturally. “To make a change with a thought of gifting hope to people and get into a business where appreciation is part of the
work culture and high demand and new environment with the corporate demand for Employee engagement programs as part of HR activities, Regalos started the journey of Corporate Gifting” adds Mr. Nandakumar.

In terms of products, the firm supplies a wide variety of promotional items as well as corporate gifts that have a long desk life such as tech-enabled products, eco-friendly sustainable products, work from home products and utility products. Starting from inexpensive corporate executive gifts such as tabletop clocks to more expensive options such as electronic gadgets & apparel, the firm offers a gamut of options to its clients. The firm also offers a wide variety of engraved corporate gift sets for all occasions including swag kits, birthday gifts, trade shows gifts, festivals (Diwali, Christmas) gifts, anniversary gifts, off site events and training.
