It’s the most wonderful time of year again; frosty air, warm crackling fires and the comfort of friends and family close by. In the midst of this magical time of year it is important to show appreciation to your clients by sending them a little something special for the holidays. We have pulled together a list of wonderful (and cost effective) gift ideas that you can send to your clients no matter how big or small your budget!
- The best of your company swag
Everyone can use a new sweatshirt, hat, or t-shirt for the holidays. Choose anything that is branded with your company logo and is of a higher value to gift your clients this holiday season.
- Terrarium for office plants
The office can be a bit bland, so it is a good idea to think about sending your clients a terrarium with a low maintenance plant such as a succulent. Bonus tip: usually, bulk ordering these items from amazon is an option and they ship effortlessly.

8. Handmade candles
Candles are always a win, when it comes to holiday gifts. You can opt for candles labeled with your logo or you can keep the logo of the company that made them (especially if it is a small or local shop). Always give seasonal appropriate candles, if you give a summer candle in autumn it could be perceived as you are cheap, as if you bought it from the clearance bin. Keep with the holiday season and gift your clients with scents of roasted chestnuts, twisted peppermint and spiced gingerbread.
