There are several different groups of people that might warrant gift giving, but if you’re wondering when to give business gifts and who to give them to, a general rule of thumb is to send gifts to the people who help make your company great.
It is said that you should send something small to each and everyone of your clients at least once a year. Gifts keep you at the forefront of your clients thoughts. All year round. The perfect gift can be the topic of many conversations. Even with companies cutting cost due to the economic downturn, others continue to be convinced gift giving is extremely important for maintaining relationships.
You should always try to customise gifts to clients as much as possible. For example, if a client is known for being a great cook, give them a gift that fuels their passion for cooking. Most clients appreciate some type of personal touch. Personalised gifts will make your clients feel special, and an important part of your business.
But if your business has too many clients for you to manage individual purchases, smaller more general items will do. Sending Love has the perfect gift being a Trio Of Candles that contain three different scented candles for only $22.95 which are boxed, and decorated with a stunning ribbon. Gifts like these are sure to impress. Avoid cheap promotional items like pens or notepads with your business logo.
You might consider sending a gift to clients after the completion of a large project, a new product launch, or another type of milestone.
Employees have come to expect at least a small token of appreciation from their employer at least once a year. This often takes place during Christmas or at the end of the year.
For most employees, you should stick to the same type of gift or at least gifts of similar value. Sending Love has an Oil Burner Gift Kit which is only $22.95, gift wrapped and is suitable for men and ladies. You can even customise our melts to make it more personalised. But if you have one or two employees or colleagues who you work with more closely, like an assistant or partner, larger hampers may be more appropriate. The team at Sending Love are happy to assist you with your needs.
The most important aspect of giving employee gifts is to remember every single person. Co-workers are likely to exchange information and you don’t want anyone feeling under-appreciated or forgotten.
Healthy, engaged employees are your top competitive advantage. If you treat them like the smart and capable adults they are, they will make smart and capable decisions that will benefit your business.
“Take care of your employees, and they’ll take care of your business. It’s as simple as that.” Sir Richard Branson
