Acknowledging people at Christmas from your business

So, you’ve decided to acknowledge your clients this Christmas, but how?

The simplest of acknowledgements is a card. Even if the card is printed with your name, add a personal message to make it relevant and special.

Many businesses give all or special clients a gift as well as a card. Within your budget, give the best gift you can rather than a cheap token that won’t really be appreciated.

Some Christmas gift ideas suitable for businesses to give are:

  • Some of your product nicely presented, if appropriate
  • An edible treat such as chocolates, muffins, cakes or slices
  • A gift hamper
  • A gift pack (basically a small hamper without the basket!)
  • A nice photo frame
  • A personalised Santa letter for their children
  • A voucher for your business – either a dollar value or a discount voucher
  • Exotic foods such as luscious chocolate sauce, hibiscus flowers or flavoured sugar
  • Flowers – a bunch, arrangement, posy or even some beautiful dried flowers
  • Christmas decorations – personalised ones are even better
  • Christmas stocking of little gifts and treats
  • A nice pen or pen/pencil set
  • A donation such as buying a Starlight Christmas Star

Regardless of what you give out, please do NOT include a business card in it. If the client needs a business card to remember you, a Christmas card or gift from you won’t mean much either and you’d be better off giving it to charity.
