Choosing appropriate corporate holiday gifts for clients can be challenging. But with a little careful planning, you don’t have to worry about getting it right.
Finding appropriate holiday gifts for clients requires careful consideration and a certain level of tact: Some client relationships are strictly professional, while others tend to be more informal (and many lie somewhere in between). In any scenario, corporate holiday gifts for clients need to send the right message for your company—and stay within your budget.
Buying Christmas gifts for clients is considerably different from shopping for almost anyone else. When you buy for friends, family or even employees, you start with a baseline of familiarity and a sense of what they personally might like. With clients, you don’t often have that advantage—especially when you need to buy holiday gifts for clients in bulk.
So what can you give that will make a statement, appeal to everyone and keep you on budget? A versatile option is the American Express® Business Gift Card, which allows you to customize your company’s message while also allowing your client to use it on a gift they will personally value. Here are some additional corporate holiday gifts for clients at a range of price points.
Most of what we write these days appears directly on our screens. But when we do need to sign a check or a contract or even jot down a quick note, it feels good to hold a great pen. Whether your clients keep them on their desks, in their purses or in their jacket pockets, the modern novelty of writing something by hand will remind them of your generosity.
High-End Travel Mugs
A morning coffee or tea, served hot or iced, can build a bond among clients, and an elegant reusable travel mug is environmentally friendly as well as a simple extravagance. You can also easily enhance the gift with a quality selection of coffees and teas—or even gourmet hot chocolate and marshmallows to get in the holiday spirit.
Bottles of Bubbly
It’s always nice to have a bottle of champagne on hand during the holidays, and it’s definitely one time of the year when a good bottle of bubbly and a pair of champagne flutes are appropriate holiday gifts for clients. Whether they enjoy it themselves or use it to entertain guests, your clients will think of your generosity while they celebrate the end of one successful year and raise their glasses to the beginning of a new one.
Versatile Gift Cards
Sometimes the best holiday gifts for clients are the ones they can actually choose themselves. American Express® Business Gift Cards will give your clients the freedom to get what they really want this holiday season. Gift cards can be purchased in any quantity, customized with a personal message and used virtually anywhere in the U.S. where American Express cards are accepted.
