Client Gifting Tips

Building a relationship with your client is the single most important ingredient for a successful business. The more you invest in your client relationship, the more likely they are to continue to do business with you.  The best way to do this is by sending them a gift of appreciation.  

Today we’re sharing the five simple tips for curating your client gifting experience.

Tip 1:  Send a gift with a purpose:Client gifting tip - send a gift with meaning.

Most gifts fall into four categories:

  • Onboarding – welcoming a client or a new hire gift
  • Appreciation – holiday gifts or referrals
  • Personal milestones – weddings, birthdays, new home, or new little ones
  • Professional milestones – events, launches, or congratulatory gifts

Each of these events provide an opportunity for you to show your gratitude for your client’s business and nurture the relationship!

Tip 2:  Set a budget:

The biggest question that I get is about the budget.  Think of the cost of dinner, a ball game or a round of golf.  It should not cost a fortune, but it should reflect the value of the time that the client has given you.

Tip 3: Think about your client and send the right gift:

When we are building a gift for you, we think of everything.  We think of the functional aspects as well as the items the client will keep.  Here are a few things you should think about when making your selections:

-Is it going to an office and will they need to share?

-Should we include a promotional item of yours for them to keep?

-Would it be a good idea to include the family in this gift?

Send gifts at planned, random times.

Tip 4:  Send your gifts at planned random times:

We call this planned randomness.  It’s best to send for Thanksgiving and “Give Thanks” versus Christmas.  A cute Valentine gift that says, “We love doing business with you.”  Sending a gift for a client’s birthday is a great way to make them feel special.  The idea is to send a gift at an unexpected time.

Tip 5:  Personalize your gift!

The best way to personalize your gift is with a hand written gift card.  Other ways that we make the gift personal is by adding their initials or last name on a marble board or cutting board that we can use as the container.  We also love to personalize glasses.  By adding a last name or an initial to the gifts, you are letting your client know that you put effort into the gift.

Have your gift delivered.

Tip 6:  Let us deliver!

When we hand deliver to your client, it makes a huge impression.  It’s a huge surprise and it makes a much bigger impact than if you make the delivery.

Behind the scenes photo shoot in New Orleans

They say if you are really good at something, don’t be afraid to scream it from the rooftop!  It was from a rooftop bar off St. Charles Avenue where we told the city of New Orleans, “We are the BEST place to shop and the BEST place to call when you need the perfect gift hand delivered.”

On a beautiful August afternoon, we took our marketing team to the Ponchartrain Hotel and captured perfect pictures of what we do best…gifts!  Amanda Mohon was our team photographer.  Outside of her Basketry work, she also works on the side as a photographer for weddings and families, so her expertise was greatly appreciated.  Alexandra and Kristi helped design and model each gift.  Together, we had a lot of fun, worked extremely hard and created what we think is going to be a great holiday season.

Many companies turn to us to handle their client gifting.  They want something unique and love to shop local.  Here are a few gifts that our customers have already committed to for their holiday gifts.  If you need corporate gifts whether it is one or several hundred, let us take care of you.  It’s never too early to plan your holiday gifts.

As we kick off fourth quarter to plan for new gifts, new advertisements, and new website changes, it is important to note that our designs are created with customers in mind.  After 23 years of helping companies put together impressive gifts, we know what they are looking for.  Our wooden pine boxes are a new look for us this year, and have already proven to become a #1 seller.  The slick and sophisticated design with the opportunity for branding on the outside is a great way to send your gratitude!

You can look for these photos in upcoming ads, our online brochure, our website and social media.

If you need a gift hand delivered same day or shipped to clients, family and friends give us a call!

 

Want to know a fun fact?  After we booked our room and took pictures inside of the beautiful hotel, we headed to the rooftop to capture some with our unique city in the background.  We were such party animals that they kicked us out of the rooftop bar!  Just kidding.  We did have to reschedule our photo shoot so we didn’t upset the other paying customers.

Look for these and many more beautiful gifts on our website!
