By Catherine Howell | Nov 18, 2020 | Blog

Sending a customary thank you xmas gift to clients is an effective way to build more affinity and solidify the relationship with your client by showing them you appreciate their business  (plus, humans love getting gifts, especially unexpected ones!). 

It’s that time of the year again, only this time, with Covid throwing shipping and postal services for a loop, you’ll want to make sure you get in early sending out Xmas gifts to clients!

If you’re short on ideas, we’ve got you sorted with a hand-selected list to help you gift something that will truly delight no matter your budget or time scope! 

Here are 5 Xmas Client Gift Ideas: 

1. Framed Poster 

If your client sells tangible products where they get loads of user-generated content, this is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can ever send and will go miles towards impressing them. 

Simply scour Instagram for user-generated content of customers posting photos with their products and build a collage of images.  

You can use companies like Social Print Studio to print out a poster of the collage. 

Tip: Add your logo to the bottom grid so that you’re always top of mind where they can see! Get the poster framed and send it to them. 

Impressive score: 5/5 

Time: 2 hours 

Cost: $50 (exl shipping) – but looks a million bucks 

2. Elf Yourself

If time and budget constraints are an issue, you can still impress clients and show you are thinking of them all whilst delivering a laugh with Jib Jab – a software tool that allows you to superimpose your face on top of dancing elves.  

Perfect if you are just yourself or have a team of around 4.

Time: 1/2 hour

3. Customized Gifts 

A custom gift adds that extra personal touch – much like the framed poster but the below ideas are better suited if time is limited or the client doesn’t have much user-generated content to work with.

  1. Snugzy – superimposes your client’s face on a teddy bear 
  2. Royal Portraits – superimposes your client’s face on a royal portrait 
  3. Custom liquor bottle – perfect for the more refined and sophisticated clients 

Impressive score: 4/5 

Time: 1/2 hour 

Cost: $20-$100 

4. Cookies and Cupcakes 

If your client has a large team and a physical office space, getting holiday cookies or cupcakes delivered is a surefire way to butter everyone in the company! 

You can get these themed for Xmas or, even better, if you are offering Facebook advertising services or the likes get the cupcakes designed with social media icons or logos to make it relevant to your services. 

Impressive score: 4/5 

Time: 1/2 hour 

Cost: $20-$50

5. Selfie Light 

The perfect gift if you’ve been trying to encourage your client to take more live videos or create more content of themselves!  

A mini selfie light that attaches to their phones is unique and innovative enough to make you stand out in their eyes! 

Impressive score: 4/5 

Time: 1/2 hour 

Cost: $20-$50

For the Client On The Naughty List….
