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,
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
A nice pen or pen/pencil set
A donation such as buying a Starlight
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.
