There are SO many reasons holiday gifting (or anytime of year for that matter) is so important. This year send something memorable and personal, that your customers will remember for years to come. Often times, people send corporate swag thinking their clients will love their mug and pen as much as they do. NOT. They’ll add it to the thousands of pens and mugs they get from everyone else and it will get lost. Why not put a little extra effort and thought into the holiday present and really get the WOW you were hoping for. So, just how do you select the perfect corporate holiday gift? Read on…
Whether you want to send an inexpensive gift or you’ve got a holiday gift budget you need to burn, below are some unique holiday gift ideas your clients and customers will love!
A Personalized Mug With THEIR Name, Not Yours
Why their name and not yours? Because, as Dale Carnegie brilliantly put it, “Remember that a man’s name is to him the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” A mug with your name or logo will quickly find its way into the back of the office cupboard. A mug with their name on it is much, much more valuable to your client, and will likely become a front runner and end up used on a daily basis.
A Personal Assistant
No. Not a real live person you have to hire and pay hourly.. It’s Fancy Hands, a US-based virtual assistant service that can take care of daily tasks so they can focus on the important stuff.

A Personalized Gift
It’s the perfect way to show your customer that you listen and really appreciate their business. It also shows just how much time and effort you spent on a personalized gift basket. Do they like to fish? Do crosswords? Do they love cats? Sending a custom gift basket with all of their favorite things speaks volumes. Make sure you ask questions and get feedback and write it down…the holidays are around the corner.
A Handwritten Note
A gift doesn’t have to be expensive. And a sincere note of appreciation can have just as much impact — if not more. it’s so rare in this day and age to actually write a letter or postcard….or receive one for that matter.
