22 Business Gift Ideas for the Holidays to Share with Your Clients
When summer ends, the perfect time to recommend branded holiday gifts begins! It may surprise you to learn that planning this early is a great way to help your clients. It’s the best way to ensure they get what they want on budget and on time. Companies often provide corporate gifts for their employees and their own clients around the holidays. That’s why it’s important to have a good conversation with them as soon as you can.
How to Reach Out to Clients About Business Gift Ideas
For current holiday gift clients, reach out to them to get the discussion started. To prep for your meeting, have notes on what they ordered the last two years, the quantity and cost, and the in-hand date ready. Be prepared with suggestions, but also ask if they have ideas already planned. Ask any questions to be sure you understand their vision and needs so your proposed gift ideas will be thoughtful and helpful.
For current clients that do not work with you for their business gift giving, now’s the time to gain their business! Let them know you would love the opportunity to partner with them on finding the perfect gifts for their clients and/or employees.
Below is a sample email or letter for your existing clients to get the ball rolling. Once they receive your letter, follow up with a call within three days to see if they are interested in moving forward.
