13 Dec 7 holiday gifts that will keep you at the top of your clients’ minds
What are you sending your clients this holiday season? It’s that time again, and while you have your hands full with holiday shopping for your loved ones, it’s worth the effort to find a gift that will delight clients and keep your business at the top of mind right before the new year.
If you haven’t come up with ideas yet, there’s good news: you still have time, and we’re here to help. Here are 7 client gifts that will that feel genuine, personal and most importantly, won’t end up in a junk drawer:
For the eco-friendly client: A S’well bottle
Everyone loves gifts that are functional and beautiful. S’well bottles have taken the design world by storm because of their bold designs and their mission to rid the world of plastic bottles. These reusable bottles will keep your client’s coffee or tea hot for 12 hours, or their chilled drinks cold for 24 hours (Modicum approved) and come in three different sizes.
For the posh client: Solo Socks
Almost everyone knows what it’s like to lose one of their favorite socks to the abyss. This Copenhagen-based company had a simple solution, and even got a Fast Company write-up because of it: stop designing socks to be pairs. Solo Socks are sold in sets of 7, and feature complementary designs that can easily be mixed and matched. If you lose one, it’s not an issue. And if you’re shopping for someone who’s absolutely adamant about having paired socks, you can just pick up two packages.
For the foodie: A Graze Box
The Graze Box offers a selection of healthy (and actually tasty) snacks that are sent based upon your flavor preferences. The best part? You can customize your delivery intervals and adjust to some food sensitivities. Have a client who’s gluten-free? Not a problem.
For the tech maven: The Amazon Echo Dot
Amazon’s newest gadget is voice controlled, and can do everything from streaming your music to tell you the weather; and allegedly puts Siri to shame. It’s compatible with Nest, Samsung SmartThings, and a huge range of smart home products, making it perfect for the client who’s more than ready to embrace the Internet of Things.
For the minimalist: An experience
For someone who is extraordinarily minimalist, your best bet is to give an experience. Tickets for a show or sports game are considered standard, but you could also offer a certificate for a nice meal or a specialty class. With specialized websites you can pick a perfect experience based upon location, price, and interest. Have a client that’ll be interested in watercolor lettering or beer brewing? Verlocal’s got you covered. Wine tasting on a boat or tandem hang gliding? Try Cloud 9 Living. These kinds of gifts are even better if your client can share the experience with their family or friends.
For the activist: A donation they’ll actually care about
Donations tend to be a go-to “I have no idea what to get you” kind of gift. You can make this gift a little more personalized by asking your client what their preferred charity actually is. Or better yet, you can give your client a Kiva gift card so they can pick a cause and personally invest in someone’s future.
For the client who has everything: A personalized e-card
Whether your client’s adamant about not receiving gifts, or you’d prefer to send your best holiday wishes, a custom ecard designed by our award-winning motion graphics team would be a great way to keep your business top of mind in the new year.
