What to Give to Your Best Clients

What to Give to Your Best Clients

Gift-giving at the end of the year for your professional connections can sometimes seem a little overwhelming. With so many gifts out there vying for your attention, we can lose focus on what you should give. Let’s simplify! First, let’s start be defining your goals. What do you want this business gift to accomplish, and what message do you want to send? What’s the relationship like that you share with this personal connection? How about your budget? By answering all of these questions, you will be well on your way to knowing what to give to your best clients. What do you want this gift to accomplish? The odds are,  this is going to be a gift that thanks your client for their support of your business over the last year. When it comes to end-of-year holiday business gifting, that is most typically the goal. But there are more motivations: you could want to show off your own good taste! Maybe you really want to impress this top client. Or maybe you just want to strengthen the bond of partnership that you share with them. These are just a few suggestions as you think about this first question. Next, what is the business relationship like? Is this client someone you have day-to-day contact with, or someone you work with only a few times a year and otherwise have minimal communication? If this client is someone who has become a close confidant, a trusted advisor or the like, that can help determine what kind of gift to send, too. How much do you want to spend on this gift? Determining...

How to Conquer Holiday Stress

How to Conquer Holiday Stress

Here we are on the threshold of the holiday season. Little by little, the parties are being added to the schedule, the decorations are going up, and the gift list is growing. Not to mention, doesn’t it seem like the traffic and the crowds get 10x worse, too? And then there’s the time spent with family and in-laws. The work parties. And to top it all off, the absolute DIET-BUSTING cookies, desserts and tempting treats EV. RY. WHERE. So how dow we keep from getting overwhelmed? When things start to get frantic, there are many ways to conquer holiday stress and keep things in perspective. Here are a few ways to get a handle on the holidays, from the holiday giving experts themselves at GiftTree.   8 Ways To Curb Holiday Stress   1. Set Boundaries. We cannot stress this enough! Throughout the season, remind yourself that you do not have to say “yes” to every potluck, every Secret Santa, every White Elephant and every party. Think about it: when you add that last-minute party to your calendar, you’re adding more than just the event. You’ll be shopping for ingredients, cooking or baking, buying and wrapping another gift, finding a new outfit… the to-do list will get HUGE before you know it. Saying “no” to just one or two things will free up a lot of space to breathe.   2. Don’t Skip Your Exercise Routines. It will soon start to feel like you don’t have time to fit it all in, so one of the first things to go during the holidays will be the time you take for...
2019 Holiday Collection Sneak Peek

2019 Holiday Collection Sneak Peek

As we near the Fall season, it’s time for most businesses to start thinking about their holiday business gifts. Have you and your company made your plan yet? It can feel overwhelming – trying to remember so many important clients to thank, employees and vendors. If you haven’t gotten your list together yet, here are some tips to develop your holiday gifting game plan. How To Develop Your Holiday Gifting Strategy   STEP ONE: Make Your List Consider your most important clients, customers and business partners first. Then move onto your employees, followed by your list of vendors. You can decide how deep you want to go into gift-giving this year! STEP TWO: Segment the List into Tiers To make sure that the gift you send to a recipient also sends the right message, it’s important to consider the value of the relationship you have with them. For example, the top client who has given your company a lot of business this year and the vendor who delivers bottled water every week (while that is valuable – stay hydrated!) would not get the same gift. STEP THREE: Determine Your Gifting Budget For Each Tier Based on your holiday business gifting budget that’s been set for the year, you will want to determine how much you’re going to spend on each individual gift in that tier. There is no wrong or right answer here! Based on your company’s yearly gifting plan, decide the price point parameters you’re going to adhere to for each tier. Now that you’ve got your plan in place, here’s a helpful article about three more strategies that...
