The time has come to think about client Christmas gifts
With Christmas just around the corner, have you thought about client Christmas gifts yet?
We’ve refreshed our popular blog on client Christmas gifts with a twist for 2023 and we’ve included some ideas from brands we love! We’ve also shared some top tips on how to choose the perfect gift.
How To Choose The Perfect Gifts For Clients
Here are a few tips and ideas to help you get started:
Do you know anything about your client’s interests?
If your clients are on social media, they may well have hinted on their profiles or in their content about their hobbies, likes and dislikes. Scan their posts for any gift ideas that will fit in with their lifestyle or how they like to unwind in their downtime.
Choose a gift that is relevant to your client’s industry.
Considering this is your client, you probably know a lot about their business, so you shouldn’t have much difficulty figuring out what they’re working on and their business goals. Choose a gift you think they will appreciate and make their working day easier or more enjoyable.
Choose a gift that reflects your own brand or personality.
You might consider going for personalised or branded gifts. There are so many options to choose from, such as branded notebooks or even branded bottles of drink! If you want to order the same gift for all of your clients, something with a personalised message or your logo on can look great. Just make sure any logos or images you use are high res, and check the proof before you complete your order!
You can always get a gift card or gift experience if all else fails!
Even a gift card can be thoughtful if you choose the right one! Plus, they give the client the opportunity to buy something they can pick out themselves. A gift experience like an escape room could also make a fun gift!
If you are still stumped for ideas… we’ve found some amazing small businesses you might want to check out for your client gifts.
