Gifts That Make Clients Grateful

Submitted by Kelly Glass

‘Tis the season for gift giving! As the holidays wind down and shopping lists shorten, your customers may get stumped on what to get their clients. Advise them to never pass up the opportunity to say thank you to existing clients or even to gift competitors’ customers — more than half of companies do this!

According to Small Business Trends, the most popular gifts tend to be cards, calendars, food or fruit baskets. Help your customers stand out from other business gift givers by upgrading to one of these gift ideas instead.

  • Luggage Trackers (or Key Finders!). For the jet-setting clients, these gifts are lifesavers and give frequent flyers peace of mind. The devices are synced to apps on smart phones allowing the users to track the devices wherever they are placed. The flat surface of the item is also an excellent canvas for your customers to place their logos as constant reminders to their clients. If your customers’ clients are not the nomadic type, no worries! The devices are excellent for finding those car keys that always go missing.
  • Terrariums. The weather outside is frightful. This gift will brighten up the desks of your customers’ clients and bring them both memories of summer and hopes for a shorter winter on the dreariest of days. Twig Terrariums even offers the opportunity to create custom ones!
  • Temperature-Controlled Drinkware. Water or coffee, tea or smoothie, these containers will hold all of it and keep beverages at the perfect temperature! This gift is perfect for the clients that are tough to buy for. The bottles are guaranteed to keep drinks hot or cold and show off logos beautifully as well.
  • Gift Baskets. When in doubt, gift baskets are awesome! They don’t always have to be a hodgepodge of exotic fruits or collections of chocolate. Encourage your customers to make gift baskets for their clients as personalized as possible. At the last pitch meeting, did they discuss golf at length? Help your customers throw in some personalized golf balls, tees and dri-fit polo shirts. Did they speak about their love for Italian food? Make an Italy-inspired gift basket with wine, cheese, pasta, branded apron and cookbook. The real gift is acknowledging that your customers listen to their clients and remember their likes and dislikes.

When given the chance, 89% of companies customize their gifts with logos or other branding. This holiday season, remember Idea Custom Solutions is ready to help you make your customers’ logos shine on all these promotional products — providing the best quality and most reliable turn times in vector artwork, embroidery digitizing and more.
