The Christmas Season can be a tricky time from the lens of a professional. Unlike personal friends and family, the act of gift giving can potentially give mixed signals when done for your clients. Acting as a savvy entrepreneur, you may find yourself considering what would look most professional and leave a lasting impression, while also not being inappropriate or too expensive. Why don’t we take away some of the guesswork and help you with a list of stuff to consider and not consider getting for your clients:
A personalized pen set
An oldie but goodie, personalized pens are great because you make something that anyone can use into something that’s really made for them. Just make sure you get a good one that doesn’t dry up or write badly.
A gift basket
A common find in the grocery section or department store, gift baskets are essentially ‘ready to gift’ care packages that are aimed towards more general audiences. They’re easy to pick up and give away to your client base, just make sure to get one that matches your branding and the needs or wants of your target market.
A thermal water bottle
Another item you can personalize, thermal water bottles make great gifts because of how useful and versatile they can be. Every time your clients take a sip and refresh themselves with a drink, they can think of you.
A box of teas or a bag of coffee beans
It’s hard to go wrong with tea or coffee, and a really good batch of curated caffeine goodness can really make someone’s day. These are especially great for winter times where a good hot drink can make for a cozy time at home. Just be wary of certain clients with restrictions to strong caffeine, as such having a batch of tea handy can help.
A wireless phone charger
This is a great gift for the modern client, doing away with the clutter of wires while preserving the durability of the charging port. This is one of those gifts people want but never really get for themselves more often than not.
A calendar for the next decade
Another classic, calendars make great gifts because each month can be personalized to taste with a fancy photo, words of wisdom, or even a funny image with puppies and kittens. It makes for great decor with something new to look forward to every turn of the month. These days, you have an even wider variety of options to choose from in terms of presentation, from basic mini calendar cards to desktop works of art with mini easels.
And there we have it, our picks for great gifts you can give to your client base. No need to overthink what would be great or what might offend potential clients as we have most of them here already.
