8 Thoughtful Client Gift Ideas
Your business wouldn’t be what it is without your clients, which is why it is so important that they’re aware of just how much you appreciate them.
Giving corporate gifts is a solid way of conveying that appreciation, but figuring out an appropriate gift can be difficult. There’s always the risk of giving something that will go unappreciated or unwanted, so it’s crucial to put some thought into the idea before you commit. To assist you with that, here’s a list of 8 thoughtful ideas for client gifts.
1. Mixed Dessert Box
Giving sweets is a tried and true method of showing customer appreciation, so keep this one in mind! Better than giving sweets is giving gourmet sweets, such as this mixed dessert box by local artisan Cocoa Oven. This box includes brownies, chocolate shards and chocolate dipped pretzels made from Belgian couverture chocolate. You can personalize it by choosing to add in a gift card with a message of your choosing.
2. Handcrafted Mugs
Giving away something simple like mugs for client gifts might seem like a bad idea until you consider the artisan, handcrafted angle. Handcrafted mugs, such as this one from KJE Clay, were made with dedication and passion and as such, have more heart and soul in them than mugs that have been mass produced.
3. Tonic Syrups
These tonic syrups by The Cure Tonics would make excellent client gifts. Usable with soda water as well as gin, these syrups are made from only the highest quality ingredients which have been steeped to extract the natural flavours as well as any nutritional benefits. In addition, these syrups contain 30% less sugar than other popular tonic water soda drinks that you can find in stores.
4. Handmade Notebooks
Another great client gift idea are handmade notebooks, such as the ones made by ArtyCrafts. Everyone needs something to write on whether for business or pleasure, so why not give them a notebook made from 100% recycled paper? The paper used is also PCF (chlorine free), which makes these books a great eco-friendly purchase. They are perfect for fountain pen writing, but function just as well with any kind of writing implement.
A little bit of greenery is a great way to brighten up a client’s day and let you know how much you appreciate them, which makes the terrariums by Bloominbee and Two Fish & me ideal client gifts. Bloominbee offers a fun DIY twist on a succulent terrarium by providing you with everything needed to build your own, including live succulents. The finished product would look perfect on a desk or anywhere in the home.
Two Fish & me makes terrariums that feature preserved moss, which means they don’t require watering. These terrariums are also DIY, which means they can be arranged and displayed in whatever manner deemed fit. Both these terrarium types would make great and thoughtful client gifts!
6. All Natural Teas and Tea Blends
Plenty of people appreciate a good cup of tea, so giving them the gift of artisan made, all natural tea and tea blends is a wonderful idea. The teas made by Inspired Health by Dee feature all organic, natural, and high quality ingredients, so you can rest assured that your client will be able to savor the best cup of tea.
7. Indoor Plants
For a client who has got a green thumb, there’s no better gift idea than a unique take on an indoor plant. Kokedama plants, like this one from Bloomibee, are fun to look at and easy to look after and will make a memorable gift. For an individual who is a bit more hands on, why not consider a DIY Kokedama kit, like this one from Green Leaf Lounge?
8. Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers might seem like an overdone gift idea, but the fact that they’re still so popular as a gift choice is an indicator of just how effective they are at conveying appreciation and affection. For deliveries in Sydney, consider local florist Florart Inspired and in Perth, consider Teka Flowers. Both of these artisans create gorgeous fresh floral arrangements that are sure to bring happiness wherever they are sent.
Showing Your Clients How Much You Care
Giving a thoughtful gift to a client is a wonderful way to express how much you appreciate their business, but it also goes a long way toward ensuring they return to you. Take some time to reflect on what you know about your client and find a gift that will resonate with them so that they know just how much you care.
