Finding the “perfect” holiday gifts for clients can be as easy as thinking personalized, practical, and charitable.
The holidays are quickly approaching, and finding the perfect gift for your clients can be stressful. To make the most impact this year, think personalized, practical and charitable.
Monogramming is a great way to make an everyday item special and meaningful. For example, a monogramed welcome mat marks the purchase of a new home, can be immediately put to use, and has that personalized touch. Using the image of your client’s new home can make your gift special enough to cherish over their lifetime. Creating a painting from a picture of their new home, making an engraving of their new home and framing a copy of their new house key in a shadow box all highlight this milestone in an unforgettable way.
Nothing will keep you in the forefront of your clients’ minds more than giving them something they will see and use regularly. Personalized pens and luggage tags or travel coffee mugs with a picture of their new home are all useful items which will likely be used on a regular basis and keep your clients thinking of you. Consumables are a special treat which can also highlight your client’s new area, such as locally made artisanal chocolates, pastries or wine.
Giving to a local charitable organization in your client’s name can be a great gift this season. You can even personalize their donation by choosing a cause close to their heart: animal shelters for pet owners, a children’s hospital for families, third world entrepreneurs for business moguls, etc.
We give gifts to show our appreciation and gratitude for our clients’ business and hope they bring us referrals in the future. Keeping these guidelines in mind for your holiday shopping will help you find the perfect gift for each client on your list!
