What Do You Send Your Clients to Mark the Holiday Season?
Can you believe it’s already November? The holidays are here and that means it’s time to start planning out the gifts you’ll give to the important people in your life.
When you’re a business owner, that list includes your clients!

‘Tis the season for eating, right? Food gifts are usually a hit with everyone—just be conscious of any special dietary restrictions your clients may have. Here are a few ideas:
Hot Chocolate Bombs
Yes, they came from a TikTok trend, but they’re so tasty! Last fall, videos of the giant hollow truffles filled with marshmallows, candy or alcohol took over the internet and could be found at local and major chain stores. And fortunately, it looks like they’re here to stay. Williams Sonoma, Uncommon Goods, Harry & David, and Successories all offer their own hot chocolate bomb gift options for you to choose from.
Boxes of Chocolate
Keep it Local
Support local small businesses near your clients by ordering cookies, cupcakes, chocolates, gift baskets, etc. from nearby establishments. Your client is sure to enjoy the tasty treat and will appreciate that you’re supporting a local business.
You may save a few dollars by ordering gifts in bulk, but a personalized gift is a great way to show clients you REALLY care and that you listen to them.
Take notes throughout the year on your conversations with clients and include any personal tidbits they mention—their favorite show or music artist, hobbies, interests outside work, family activities they enjoy, etc.
Here are a few examples of personalized gifts someone may enjoy:
- For the baseball fan—tickets to see their favorite team
- For the avid runner—comfy socks or a Medal Holder
- For the Adele lover—Adele 30, Deluxe CD with 3 exclusive bonus tracks
- For The Office fanatic—Dundie Award ornament
- For the golfer—Monogram ball marker
- For the family man/woman—tickets to a local family activity (zoo, museum, aquarium, etc.)
- For the beach bum—a sand-free towel, Beach Cottage candle, or a BruMate
- For the green thumb—desktop succulents
Another fun option to consider is Greetabl, which allows you to create a custom gift box for each person.
What are you thinking for your clients? We recommend planning and ordering early this year due to shortages and shipping issues impacting the entire globe.
