  • Everybody loves a gift delivery.  Surprising your clients with a gift this time of year is a wonderful way to let them know they are in your inner circle. Receiving thoughtful gifts triggers a whole spectrum of positive emotions that will be associated with your company and brand for time to come.
  • Relationships need nurturing.  You worked hard to earn your client's business, but building that relationship should not end with a transaction.  Use the holiday season as a positive excuse to show your appreciation and nurture the relationship you worked so hard to initiate.  
  • Appreciation inspires loyalty.  Sometimes a simple thank you is all that someone needs to brighten up their day.   By including a no-strings-attached gift, you will exceed expectations, deepen the relationship and increase the chances of continued customer loyalty.
  • A little shameless plugging doesn't hurt.  Who doesn't like a little swag?  One of the great things about sending a gift during the holiday season is that it provides you with an opportunity to serve up a reminder that you are still here, and open for business.  And perhaps your gift will sit prominently in their space as a continuous reminder.. so think strategically about the gift you choose.
  • Tis the season for gifting.  The holidays are a time where people come together to give thanks for the past year and give best wishes for the New Year.  What better way to do so then with a gift that serves up a celebration.
