If you’re like most business owners, you find yourself stuck each holiday season wondering what gifts to get for your clients. It’s a tricky area. After all, it can be tough to strike the balance between personal and professional, and even tougher to find an item that will leave a lasting impression on the recipient.
As the number one worldwide cleaning brand, the team at JAN-PRO knows how important holiday gifts can be when you work in a service industry. This year, we’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing the right gifts for your clients with this guide to 2016’s best professional holiday gifts.
Over the past few years, the number of high-quality subscription services on the market has exploded. Subscription services make great holiday gifts for clients. They are — quite literally — the gift that keeps on giving. With the right subscription, your client will be thinking of you and your business every month (or week!) when their latest gift shipment arrives.
Some great ideas for corporate gift subscriptions include:
- Coffee subscriptions
- Tea Subscriptions
- Whisky subscriptions
- Wine subscriptions
- Baked goods subscriptions
- Audio book subscriptions
- Golf subscriptions
- Tech Goodies & Gadgets
One of the best ways to get clients excited is to give them access to the latest gadgets on the market. That doesn’t mean you need to buy a new iPhone for every client. This year, some of the best tech gadgets come in at under $50, like Google Chromecast, Amazon Echo Dot, and WeMo Smart Plugs.
One way to elevate a client’s holiday gift is by personalizing it with their name. Personalizing an item shows a level of forethought that isn’t found in every gift. You might even personalize the gift with their business’s name — particularly if they’re the CEO or founder of their brand. Personalizing a client’s holiday gift works especially well with executive-level items. Think leather portfolios, fine pens, and stationery.
Just because a gift is unique doesn’t always mean it’s impactful. If you work in a more traditional or conservative industry, sometimes a classic gift will leave a stronger impression on a client than something a little off-the-wall. A bottle of fine wine, a selection of artisanal chocolates, or a status-symbol pen remain excellent ways of saying thank you to your clients each December.
