Giving Your Clients Gifts for the Holidays

The winter holidays are upon us once more, and now is the time to begin thinking about corporate gifts to send to your top clients as a token of your appreciation and gratitude for their business over the past year. Corporate gifts let your valued clients know that they are doing business with a corporation that truly cares about building and sustaining strong professional relationships. Most importantly, a thoughtful corporate gift during the holiday season can go a long way toward ensuring that your clients continue to do business with your company in the new year and beyond. Here are a few ideas for corporate gifts designed to delight your clients this holiday season!

The Gift of Caffeine

If your clients need their daily cup (or cups!) of Joe to get going in the morning, a coffee gift set or fair-trade gourmet coffee sampler may be a nice gift. You can purchase a single gift sets – or even give clients the gift that keeps on giving with 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscriptions for new coffee selections all year round. Your valued clients may thank you for providing them with that little extra jumpstart each day!

A Succulent Garden

Appeal to your clients’ inner gardener with a beautiful, peaceful succulent garden. Some garden companies even specialize in corporate gifts that stand out from the rest of the pile and are designed to bring joy to any recipient. The low-maintenance succulents only need to be watered once every 7-10 days, making them ideal plants for busy clients to keep and admire in their homes or offices. Some suppliers even offer customizable gift boxes emblazoned with your company’s logo, so that your clients will be sure to know exactly whom to thank for their sustainable garden.

Personalized Gift Cards

There are a reason gift cards continue to be one of the most popular corporate gifts year after year- practical, light, and easy to ship, gift cards are truly a one-size-fits-all token of appreciation for the clients on every business owner’s list. Additionally, thanks to gift card platforms, you can get gift cards from virtually any store or restaurant on the planet. It’s simple to select a card that fits each client’s unique personality and speaks to their likes, interests, or hobbies. It’s even possible to send e-gift cards in an effort to reduce shipping costs while still giving clients a special and meaningful end-of-year ‘thank you’- something that small start-ups and mid-sized companies can appreciate. Best of all, because e-gift cards can come in virtually any denomination, every client on your list can receive a special “thank you” without breaking the bank!

No matter how you choose to handle corporate gifts for your clients this holiday season, remember that the quality of the relationships that you foster now can go a long way toward helping your business achieve greater success in years to come. A well-thought-out corporate gift from the heart is sure to make a lasting impression on your clients and encourage them to continue doing business with you year after year.
