What Can Giving Gifts to Clients Do for Your Business?

Without clients, your business would not exist. Showing your appreciation especially during the season of gift-giving is more than just participating in a ritual. It is leverage for your business.

  • Offering a gift shows your service providers you are thankful for the services they performed for you and your business during the year.
  • It keeps you top of mind (though this should not be the purpose for sending a gift).
  • More subtly, it shows you are invested in their success, and you were grateful for the opportunity to move them toward that end.
  • It gives you a reason to connect. Any conversation may elicit more ways in which you can serve them.

8 Tips to choose the right gifts:

  • Set a spending limit
  • It’s okay to be personal but not intimate
  • It’s best to offer shareable gifts
  • Keep in mind the company culture and diversity
  • Be mindful of beliefs and faiths
  • Consider posting information with food items (such as gluten, nut-free, dairy-free, etc.)
  • If the number of employees is small, consider a gift card that can be used anywhere
  • Always include a personally written thank-you for your business card with each gift.

Before you do anything, verify a company’s policy on gift-giving. Most military, government or unionized organizations may frown up the practice. In any instance, you want to show goodwill and not make anyone uncomfortable.
